Wife and I stopped in for an early dinner and this place was great. The service was outstanding and food was great. I can't remember what we ordered but it was good and the tables around us had some amazing food as well.

We stumbled on this restaurant when we were wandering the streets deciding where to eat. Not far from our hotel, and we thought we'd take a chance. The food was very good and the wait staff was good. Prices were reasonable, for 4 entrees, 2 beers, and 3 desserts the bill was 101 euro.

After placing my order I asked for regular tap water. For logical and ecological reasons I avoid bottled water in countries where I can. This has worked all over Amsterdam except the "friendly" lady told me they don't serve regular water! She got us all ultra mini bottles and charged us 3 Euros a piece! Food was average at best....

Have been there a couple of times and got only positive impressions. Fast and polite staff, tasty food, good music. Prices and design remind you that you are in a restaurant, although not in very expensive one. A cute thing: they have an old computer which runs some text-mode system in Chinese. Check it out!

It was a nice friendly chinese restaurant not too dear, near where we were staying, but we were shocked one evening when the lady coughed, presented us with the bill while we were eating and said they closed at 10 p.m.! Luckily not everywhere did but you live and learn.

My husband and I came here based on the reviews here already (5 out of 5) and it being close to our hotel. I can honestly say it is not a 5 out of 5 restaurant. The staff are friendly enough and the place is a comfortable setting. The food however is average at a push - we had sizzling... More

Our usual place when we want to eat before going to a concert at the Concertgebouw. We've been going there for years now The food is pretty traditional for a Chinese restaurant in the Netherlands and tastes good. Service is very friendly and quick. If you're running a bit late before a concert and tell the waitstaff, food can appear... More

Very tasty. I'm not a guru in Chinese cousin, but I like this place. Very delicious. Seafood are excellent. The majority of visitors are locals.

We were looking for a Greek Resturant and stumbles on this Chinese Resturant and we were so glad we did. Fully staffed by Chines e staff who were quite friendly, we found the food to be suburb. 5 of us ate for 100 euros which is about normal with a drink thrown in. The food was out of this world...

This is out of the tourist area close to the train station where restaurants are poor. If you are in the museum district, walk just a few blocks from the Concert Gebouw down Van Baerlestraat and have a lovely, inexpensive dinner in a quiet setting. We checked lots of menus posted outside several restaurants in the area before choosing this... More
