Only decent restaurant in Amsterdam

Sad to see other traveler's had bad experiences with Mr Tongs, because our only positive food experience in Amsterdam was here. I ordered the 5 euro wok menu and was really satisfied (photo attached). My boyfriend ordered duck and also found it good and he is Asian so he is picky about Asian food... read more

Had to remind waiters too many times for our drinks and other items that we ordered. Food was burnt and came out of the freezer.

Really bad dining experience, had to order drinks twice as they didn't arrive, we weren't give a knife or folk, asks for some soy sauce several times which never arrived. Food seemed like it had all be frozen, fried rice was burnt and roast duck was cold.

Situation was ok, food was half okay (meaning mine-the chicken noodle was okay, whilst my partner,s-the Cantonese rice-was not nice). What made this place not good was the staff attitude. Will never go back and don,t recommend.

Went here for dinner last night, and I have to say, this was most definitely my worst restaurant experience in ages! We ordered food in two rounds and had three rounds of beers, and on each and every occasion the order came out wrong. It was alarming - we weren't even trying to make it difficult for the waiters. We... More

Three of us dined here for a quick bite to eat but they havepretty average food. The service was okay but pretty slow. If you can I would recommend going somewhere else!

When roaming in the '9 streets' area in Amsterdam we came into an area full of restaurants of all nationalities. My lady companion was not hungry so I looked around for a 'bite'. The big add about dishes from the wok, beef, pork and chiken for 5 Euros including surounds to choose, made me decide to go for one of... More

At the time we went they had a 5 Euro Wok offer on. So for only 5 Euros you got a giant dish with whatever your preference was. And the choices were pretty good. I for example had Pork, Curry sauce noodles, and I was a very happy man. A friend ordered Chicken, black bean sauce noodles and he too... More

Dreadful service both slow and messed up our order. We ordered one Peking duck and one shrimp dish. We got 2 Peking duck and sent one back and never had time for shrimp. This after discussion with waitress about what type of shrimp sauce to order with shrimp and her repeating the order, correctly. It is a cheap tourist trap... More

We popped in this Chinese restaurant for dinner. Service was very friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious and tasted like in an authentic Chinese restaurant. The best crispy duck and chicken fried rice I've ever had. The prices are very reasonable for its location. I would definitely recommend this place.
