Quality Chinese restaurant in convenient location

The food was of a high quality. Specializes in dim sum but other dishes looked good as well. Not cheap, but then nothing in Amsterdam is.

I visit often this place, everything is just perfect! Everything someone would expect from a Chinese restaurant. Staff is friendly, decoration good, food very good. I always take a soup called Su la tong (I think), as a starter. Still not disappointed with anything, so I'll keep going there.

What a happy casual discovery. The place looked full and not glamorous like most great Chinese food joints. Fast, gruff service and good food. I asked around afterwards and several colleagues knew it, one more good sign. Nice one! We had the duck and tofu with beef.

A nice surprise in a very touristy part of Amsterdam, Taste of Culture is an unassuming Chinese restaurant that I have visited twice and both times, I was satisfied. This last visit, noticed that the clientele was about 80% Chinese so that was a good sign. I enjoyed the fish in soya and honey sauce and the assorted vegetables with... More

This place is at the Leidseplein area which is a very touristic area but prices are reasonable.I advice you not to order too much because portions are so big,you can not eat all.Symphatic and very fast service deserve a good tip.

This restaurant is mentioned in a top-10 of restaurants in Amsterdam. To be honest, it is not that good! It is just an average Chinese restaurant. It is definitely a more traditional Chinese restaurant than all those Chinese-Indonesian restaurants in the Netherlands, but it is just not that good. I had better Chinese food, even in Amsterdam! My wife is... More

Come with free start soup (super nice) and free desert soup. Large portions and delicate taste! Personal favorites: Mei cai kou rou (pork), Bi feng tang niu liu (beef).

I was told that this is the best and most authentic Chinese restaurant in Amsterdam... so, I had to try it with my Shanghai friends. They, nor me, were truly impressed with the taste of the food. The portions are big, the quality is OK, but the dishes miss the finishing touch that would make them really authentic and tasty.... More

Nondescript from outside but venture in to be rewarded with authentic food. Try two kinds of bean curd with seafood but it is a meal in itself. Portions much larger than UK Chinatown restaurants so order accordingly. Unpretentious good food
