Welcome to LemongrassDutch Indonesian Cuisine

Indonesian food is on the other side of the culinary spectrum in Holland. It is the result of Dutch exportation and colonization and has its basis in the expression of the contemporary and exotic flavors that the colonies had to offer.

Still today, Indonesian influences can be experienced in every nook and cranny of Holland, including the multitude of Oriental restaurants and shops.

Indonesian cooking is an exciting art that cannot simply be learned from eating the food, but requires an understanding of the principles on which Indonesian dishes were founded.

True Indonesian cuisine requires careful schooling, time and patience, as well as a wide variety of exotic ingredients.

Along with out Restaurant, we also boast full Catering Services through Lemon Zest Catering Services. Lemon Zest takes pride in everyone’s daily catering needs. From a variety of Platters, to Spit Braais and Buffets, to Gourmet Plated Meals, at your venue or ours. We can supply all your catering needs from crockery, cutlery and glassware, to linen and table decor for every occasion or theme.

What They Say

Cornell and the staff did a brilliant job on assisting us with the choosing of the platters and the layout of the food and service for our function, and put extra touches to everything. I would recommend them for platters anyday.
