Lovely food (Take away)

I have ordered home delivery food from here on many occasions (20+) and always found the service and food excellent. One of my favourite home delivery places in the city and far better than most.

We ate here twice as it was down the road from or hotel. I've now seen the mixed reviews, however we found the food to be of a good standard. The first time we visited it I would have described it as 5 star, on the second I would have reviewed it and 3 star. The fired rice that I... More

We stumbled upon this place after a lovely afternoon at the zoo and thought we would enjoy a take away Chinese back at the hotel. The lady who served us was most pleasant however we were utterly disappointed when we had our food. I ordered the chicken curry and fried rice which was disgusting and my boyfriend had the roast...

The owners of this place were lovely, the decor was traditional and the outside of the building was beautiful. The service was good and fast (drinks were a little slow) We were given English menus without having to ask and all the food came on time without much waiting at all. The staff were friendly and spoke perfect English. The... More

Dreadful. Just dreadful. We were enticed by the somewhat positive reviews after a long day and even in our ravenous state couldn't eat our food. Only made worse by sitting opposite de Plantage restaurant which had been fantastic the night before.

We were just looking for a place to have a quick late lunch in this area and were attracted by the menu in the window. Communication is a bit tricky - they have an English menu but didn't do well with anything beyond that. (I am not complaining about this, just reporting! After all, I dont speak Dutch or Chinese...)... More

Eventhough the staff was very nice, the food was not very good. They offer a very large choice of Chinese and Indonesian dishes...but taste was strange. We chose it because it was near our hotel and wanted to eat Chinese, but we were very disappointed.

Heard from a colleague that this restaurant has good food so we decided to have diner in this restaurant. There is enough to choose for vegetarian food on the menu but when the owner knew that we're vegetarian, she suggested us to have something ( she said it in chinese) so we asked her to serve us 2 vegetarian meals....

We had an interesting selection of food - the standout dish was the Indonesia roast pork, which was excellent. Other food was perfectly fine, and definitely a good choice considering that there are very few restaurants in the area open for lunch.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
