I'm giving 4 stars because of the oysters

When we reached the place we were a little surprised how empty the place was. Nevertheless we sat down because of the famous steamed oysters. They were huge and juicy, so deserve a special mention. We ordered the Sil Jai Fang, which is basically rice with roast duck, pork and char siew, and also... read more

I decided to give out my first one star, or "I would give zero if allowed", here. As a Chinese living in USA and have literally travelled around the world, I believe I can observe and judge this restaurant objectively. Admittedly, the food provided is OK; while the faulty part is the service: born as Chinese yet living overseas, they... More

Good Chinese food just near to Chinese temple in centre. Only too chaotic and busy. It is like fast food. Goof for lunch.

I am no stranger to this place. But it is now officially a crap place. When I visited there were no visitors there and thus it can't be used as an excuse for the lousy food and service we got. All order were wrong and served cold. We had three people doublecheck what we ordered and we even used their... More

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.

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.

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
