Great asian Tapas!

We tried the Dragon I, when we visited Amsterdam for a weekend. The reervation did not work, nevertheless the service arranged a great table after 5 minutes of wait for us. The food is not cheap, but simply amazing! You should definately try the beijing duck!

The quality of food is average. I like the idea of sample dishes from different Asian countries but there are too many sauces envolved and there seems to be too much of frying going on.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Asian tapas which was delicious, easy to order and with great service including sensible advice on navigating the menu. We walked in for the first meal but then failed later in the week to get a table so definitely recommend booking. Best dining experience we had in our trip to Amsterdam.

My husband and I were craving for some Asian food and decided to give it a try after reading about all the good reviews. Food here is tapas style which is not common in Asian restaurants, unless it's a dim sum place. We ordered 9 dishes total and are more than enough. Recommend their spicy wings, California rolls, and unagi... More

For those among us who want to try everything instead of being tied down by one or two dishes. Extensive menu of small dishes that include classics such as Peking Duck Pancakes but also much more original concoctions so everyone in your party will be able to pick and choose to their hearts' content. Only criticism would be that they... More

Best fusion Asian food we've ever had! Luckily we'd made a reservation, as the restaurant was deservedly full with a long waiting list! The atmosphere was buzzy and delightful, fragrant food was being thoroughly enjoyed all around us and there was laughter and joy in the air. I would go back time and again for the Kimchi salmon, it was... More

Really good and tasty food! We went here for dinner, fullbooked but we only had to wait 15 min for a table. A nice place, really nice waiter but a little noisy.

Dragon i is a very nice place with fine finishing touch and eyes for details. The food was perfectly prepared, pricing was good. It's sort of Asian fusion since it wasn't exclusively Japanese cuisine only. It's more like a kind of fusion of Japanese/Korean/Cantonese street food. The service was fairly attentive and friendly. They really took time to explained us... More

we were looking a Chinese restaurant in Amsterdam near our hotel. it is a very friendly restaurant. food is excellent from Chinese standard. The portion is very small but the price is also small. This is a fusion type Chinese restaurant with a nice presentation. If you are a big eater, you may end up to pay a bit more... More
