Worth the wait

We visited on a Saturday night. They were very busy, so we waited in line 45 minutes. Food was SO good. It was recommended the driver who took us to our hotel, as his favorite place to eat. Décor is kind of ghetto, but they make up for it in the food!

Excellent service and food quality in a very traditional restaurant. Food comparable to some of the best places we've eaten at in Honk Kong. My Cantonese other half was full of praise too.

If i could rate this as zero i would!!! When we arrived and asked for a table for two the guy who looked to be in charge abruptly told us to sit down. I ordered crispy noodle with chicken in a sauce, my husband ordered a meal with pork, beef and chicken. When the meal arrived it was thrown down... More

Set on the outer edge of Chinatown this restaurant is of a basic style. Very large menu. The portion sizes are huge and each dish is probably best shared.....or simply order your favourite one only. We went early evening and the place was very busy. The service was ok and helpful. If you need the toilets they are at the... More

We were after a quick inexpensive Chinese meal so settled on noodle soup for 3 of us and Chicken/Duck with rice for 1 of our party. Restaurant is basic but the soup was excellent. I had the Char Sui (roast pork) which was tasty meat with all the usual soup ingredients. A large serving and was all I needed to... More

A busy and touristy place that appears to be authentic. Unfortunatly the food quality is low. We had one of the "standards" which is beijing duck. No flavour, no crispy skin, very bony. We ordered the sauce on the side, fortunatly. Sauce is thick, brown and has an indefinte taste .... normally their pour a full load straight over the... More

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.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
