Nice location, ok prices and fine if you are just hungry. No real good food though. Just the oysters are great, forget the Peking duck or the dim sums

Forget the fries, go to Nam Kee for authentic homemade Chinese food. Order at least one oyster per person as these are the best you will taste anywhere. The food is fresh and not made for the tourist crowd. Local place for people who know what good chinese food is! (No PUPU platter here!!)

As my favorite lunchplace was closed due to technical incidents strolled on to the Heinekenplein for a late chinese lunch. This was the worst lunch EVER. The place was empty except for the Chinese food couriers that were stationed at the entrance, plus their friends. We were stationed right next to them literally 6 cm apart divided by a Chinese...

We had been here a couple of years ago. But returning was a big disappointment. We decided have a bite here, because the sign outside announced a menu for 8,50 - only once seated were we told that this is a lunch only offer. So we ordered a Peking duck and a wonton soup. The duck was edible, but very... More

Relied on Tripadvisor for a meal with some work colleagues after a long day. Expected so much more from the comments posted but should have known from the menu design (all pictures and so many pages) it would be full of awful ingredients and prepared with what looked like MSG or similar filler. The only thing that was nice was... More

This restaurant has a real authentic Chinese flavour. We almost order here weekly. Peking Duck and Chap Choi are really recommendable items. The staff is very friendly. The interior is a little too modern to be called romantic. But we find the best Chinese in Amsterdam-South (next to the best Indian) is on Marie Heinekenplein.

I loved the food, very good taste. We took duck and squid, it was delicious. The wantan soup was also very nice. The staf is helpful and friendly. And for Holland the prices are very low in this restaurant.

Average food and prices. Service was ok, not too friendly. I don't think I would go back again. We paid 35 eur for 2 portions of spring rolls, 2 main courses and 2 drinks.
