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

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.

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,...
