Really nice Chinese restaurant

The food was great, really tasty and felt Chinese, not like a chain of industrialized food. The service could be a little better, with more polite people, but don't bother with that.

Terrible experience! Foods took way too long, wrong meals came out, Chinese gal was really rude! Customer came and left never got the chance to order(waiter never went to get order). Did not receive tap water until asking the second time. In addition Coke never came out until asking again. Terrible customer service!!! Do not recommend to anyone!

The atmosphere at first was nice but became very boring after an extended waiting time of over an hour for the main course. Food was mediocre, wouldn't recommend to others.

I do not know if they had a specific problem with the sewage the evening we visited, but we hurried to lave after the main course and did not even try a starter. Food was nothing special and I suggest that if you want ton go for good chinese fare you visit the area around the Zeedijk in the redlight... More

We waited for 30 minutes for a drink, despite ordering three times, after an hour the food hadn't arrived, I was told it was because the starter, chicken wings, was being thawed out, the starters came with the main, the main was two dishes of the same despite ordering two different ones. however, this was nothing compared with the manager,...

The staff here seemed to think that we did not notice how awful their manners were, or that they were even laughing at us with a couple of guys who were also customers. Why the hilarity is a puzzle to me. If management read this then please enlighten me. The chinese girl was simply the worst waitress I have ever... More

Quite the worst meal of any variety ever. Sent back the (cold) Hot &Sour soup. Even when reheated, returned again as sweet and vile. Was charged for it however & had to have it removed from the bill. Charming Indian waiter, but told the po faced Chinese girl this was the worst ever meal & she made no response. Half... More
