This plce is not famous for its looks, The food is outstanding! From the outside you see just another chinese place with ducks hanhgin' in the window. Don't let this fool you because the food is cheap an tastes really good. All the food is made by hand themselves and they just do it at the table next to you.... More

The setting is very basic, the service is average at best but the food is fantastic! The oysters were great. The char siu was excellent as was the peking duck. It gets really busy so make sure you make a reservation.

It's not the trendiest not the prettiest restaurant, but it's a good place to eat. You won't find tourists there, you will find neighbours who now each other, regular customers... and that says everything about a restaurant. The food will not disappoint you for sure. If the restaurant is full you can be invited to share a table with other... More

Reaaly good food. Massive portions of freshly cooked food. Full of oriental customers and run by Chinese staff. Really brilliant. We had the Szechuan pork ramen noodle soup and the Singapore noodles with prawns. Both amazing, huge and tasty. The noodles were really fiery, just perfect.

Dropped in on Saturday the 1th of November. It was Museumnacht in Amsterdam, my boyfriend and I wanted to eat something fast (but good) before we went to Nemo at the Central Station. We had to wait for 10 minutes, because we didn't have a reservation. It was around 19:00 and the restaurant was packed. We got a table in... More

This used to be a great place, however our last time was quite a disappointment. People were waiting while many table were free. The service rather poor. The food just avearge, lost its previous authenticity. On their way to become just another average chinese restaurant like many more in the area.

People are very friendly but the food was seriously underwelmjng. Had duck with pancakes for starters where the pancakes were dry, duck was sliced too fat for Peking duck. Main was teppan beef which was even worse. There was no taste of anything, it was very oily and gooey. The beef was as if covered in batter and then cooked.... More
