Cheap & Cheerful

Got the wok and roll dish which was a spring roll and then a rice or noodle dish with sauce. The food was average and there was plenty of it. Would suggest the spring rolls as they were very nice. Service was friendly and location is on a busy street with lots of other restaurants. Would recommend... read more

The place atmosphere was comfortable and the service was great! My girlfriend and I went here for dinner and let me tell you... The food was absolutely delicious for a really affordable price! I recommend the Crispy Duck on the menu and you wont be disappointed with the quantity of the food as well! Definitely WILL COME BACK!!! 😊😊😊

I was with a big group of 24 people. All was catered to our needs. Cheap food. Diverse Chinese food. Clean environment. Close to leidseplein. Friendly staff. Use of English is highly feasible. Comfortable seating.

Ate lunch there and chose the €5 menu, great for a university student who is travelling. However, service was terrible. The waitress was in a bitter mood, which really compromised the value of the food. Along the same street there is other €5 deals, that's where I'll be going next time.

Very disappointed. Starters: Soup took 40 mins and came in plastic cheap bowls, Chinese rolls with sweet chilli sauce, chicken satay in disposable dishes. The duck was the worst, slightly burnt, hardly any meat on it. We both had small bottle of drink. The bill came to 40€ which wouldn't be a problem if left full up. I wish we... More

Me and 4 others went here after walking around for about an hour looking for a Chinese restaurant. When we finally found this one, it was completely empty which made us all weary, but we decided to order as it was very reasonably priced and the service was good, and oh my we were all satisfied after stuffing our faces...

For a Western European city centre restaurant, this Chinese was quite charming and a offers a little taste of the east, in eastern style. To me, eastern style means slightly odd service where synchronicity is less important than serving as its ready. We asked to sit in the second room, which was less canteen-like than the first bit on the... More

After five weeks of European travel and food, we decided it was time to have a dose of alternative cuisine. Walking down Amsterdam's restaurant-thick Korte Leidsedwarsstraat, we passed by Tong Ah (Mr. Tongs), checked out the menu and made the move for an early dinner. The menu shows "Crispy Duck" as a Special Offer" for 12.95 Euros, which my wife... More

Ok, so this place definitely caters for people on a budget with compromising on taste. For 5EUR you get a choice of chicken, beef, pork and served with either noodles or rice and a sauce (Hoi-Sin, Black Bean, etc). Our meals arrived fairly quickly and I was surprised at how tasty it was. Unfortunately it was a little too heavy... More
