Cool that you get to come back for a bit! Too bad you missed a rather warm October, the temps seem on their way down as of this week...
It's worth noting that the Hague is generally known for having better Indonesian food than Amsterdam....
But as for Amsterdam: all the restaurants you've listed are very tourist-oriented, which to me usually means upscale environment, attentive waitstaff, and food that's less spicy and more expensive.
Tempo Doeloe, probably known as the "Best Indonesian" in town, is probably the best of your list...it is very pretty inside, has a pretty comprehensive menu and the food is good and spicy. But it really is an unfairly expensive restaurant (a bottle of water is 6 euro), and because of this I haven't eaten there since I first moved here...there are just too many other places with comparable food who don't gouge you.
Tujuh Maret is a few doors down from Tempo Doeloe and though the menu is not really "standard Indonesian" (it's a regional variant, from Minahasa, north of Sulawesi), I'd rather eat there than Tempo Doeloe. Although I've heard that Tujuh Maret's rijstafel is not very interesting and to be avoided. I've always ordered a la carte.
That said, I only hear good things about the food at Tempo Doeloe, so if you're no longer impecunious and money is not an issue then it could be an option.
Anyway, my short list, very much limited to neighborhoods in which I normally hang out:
Djago, Scheldeplein 18.
Blue Pepper, Nassaukade 366.
Tujuh Maret, Utrechtsestraat 73.
Terang Boelan Afhaalcentrum, 2e Lindendwarsstraat 3hs.
Waroeng Asje, Jan Pieter Heijestraat 180.
Toko Ikan Mas, 1e Constantijn Huygensstraat 61.
Toko Ramee, Ferdinand Bolstraat 74.
I haven't eaten at Djago since I first moved here, but it was the best Indonesian I'd ever had at the time. I've also eaten tons more since, though, and it's probably time to go back to Djago to see how it compares. Blue Pepper i still haven't been to but reviews seem to be more consistent these days and some friends said that they had a fantastic meal there.
