Hit the spot but not overly exciting

As a vegetarian I had mushroom and two veg (broccoli and mange tout) which had a delicate flavour but the veg were cooked perfectly. Husband had duck, and again no complaints. The restaurant was quiet and the food arrived quickly. I would definitely eat here again.

We were looking for an Asian dish near our hotel. We ordered the oisters as first dish. And squids as main course. Food was tasty.

Stone throw away from henneken museum. Served superb authentic Cantonese cuisine, excellent service. The boss was very friendly and nice. Warm environment, quite crowded and prompt service. Clean toilet. Large space.

Went for an early dinner on a Sunday. The place was quiet. I wouldn't say the staff was very welcoming, but the food was amazing and fairly cheap. Jasmine tea was free with the meal. Would certainly go back.

I went there at night during dinner rush hour, it was a typical rushed Chinese restaurant where the waiters seem to be on speed and have not time for your nonsense, but helpful nonetheless. The food we ordered was dry but in good quantity. Price was decent. Its not a place for fine dining, more rather for hungry travelers or... More

Nam Kee is an Amsterdam classic. Great for groups, inexpensive and good quality. Taste their famous steamed oysters. They're brilliant.

Went here after it being recommended by someone. We had to queue for 20 minutes but it was definitely worth it. Service was good, food was killer and to top it off they didn't put us through the embarrassment of having to ask for a fork, they just didn't bother with giving us chopsticks as we were clearly incompetent English...

Usually when I take a trip to Europe, I will start craving for some Chinese food after a few days. It's a the same this time, so we went to Chinatown and find a place for dinner. Saw this little restaurant and decided to give it a go. The food is really very good. The wanton soup is very tasty.... More

I don't usually go to Chinese restaurants on holidays, but before catching our flight home, Nam Kee was an excellent choice. It is very reasonably priced, and well situated in Museumplein. The atmosphere is lovely, and you know you are going to have authentic food if there are a lot of Chinese customers inside. The dishes are all excellent (I... More

Nam Kee serves well prepared, tasty food and good beer. Attentive service and resonable prices. My wife and I had a week day lunch with peking soup, a wide selection of starters, topped by babi pangang and three beers each; total damage 48€. Coming from an oyster producing country we were not impressed by the steamed oysters, apperently in contrast... More
