First walking into the restaurant there are koi ponds in the floor, it was in need of a good cleaning and could have nicer but I get the effect they were going for. Inside the restaurant it was typical chinese decor. The food was great and large portions , enough for sharing so keep that in mind when ordering.The restaurant... More

Hadn't been to this restaurant for years and thought I would try it again. It is a very large typically furnished Chinese restaurant. The food was very mediocre and there are better Chinese restaurants nearby. The place was grubby and the toilets should be avoided. Service was cold and unwelcoming although it was busy. Disappointing.

Great looking restaurant. Big enough for the tour bus crowd. Was expensive compared to other restaurants with similar food. If you like decor glitz and very large portions, this maybe for you. 1 dish easily serves 2. Quite a few locals... it was a Saturday night. Next time I will look elsewhere.

We lived 6 years in Asia, out of which 3 years in China. So we have very high expectations of chinese food and mainly dimsums. All we had here for lunch was dimsums and they were very good. Not the best we have ever eaten, but the best we have had so far in Europe. The prices also very reasonable... More

Tai Wu is one of the most popular restaurants in the small Chinatown of Rotterdam. It is known for its uncompromising Chinese food, mainly Asian clientele, hurried service and questionable hygiene. In short: this is a piece of 'zhong guo' in the Netherlands. The rice sticks with beef was not bad, but a bit bland, whereas the overcooked Chinese vegetables... More

Excellent Chinese food for not a lot of money. If you leave this place and are still hungry, well, I seriously can't see that happening, the portions are just that large. Friendly staff, though their English isn't up to spec. Lovely place, good location, and a really big menu. Highly recommended.

Tai Wu is a great place to sample authentic Chinese food in Rotterdam. Located 5 minutes walk from Rotterdam Central train station, open every day from 12 noon onwards until after midnight. We have tried lots of different dishes and never been disappointed. Dim sum is excellent (try the prawn, pork and peanut variety), we also like the mapo tofu... More

I loved the food at this place, the dim sums were yummie! Hint: bring someone who reads chinese, as their chinese menu has more choice!

Always a good experience with no negative surprises. Dim sum is excellent, evening dining is also good and very, very good value for money. The restaurant's iterior looks like a palace in... More
