Enjoyed a meal in this restaurant several times over a period of several years. Never dissapointed and always encouraged to come back for more. Visiting Alexander do consider to select the Chef's menu (4, 5 or 7 course meal) which is a bit unlike traditional chinese food but an excellent choice. Service is friendly and efficient.

Go here for the modern dishes. They are nice and subtly flavored, very different from what you will find at a typical Chinese restaurant in the Netherlands. Much better and very modern, run by enthustiastic Chinese-Dutch couple. Will definitely go back for more, suitable for business, friends and special occasions.

This restaurant had a make-over about a year ago and wow, a fresh, modern atmosphere, but still very welcoming! The food is different than the average Dutch Chinese restaurant, you don't go here 'just to have a quick bite', no: here you really get to taste the food, the flavours, the hospitallity and the ambiance. You of course can taste... More

They offer special stuff that you can't find in an average chinese restaurant in Holland (the Peking Duck Salad is good). Doesn't come for free though.
