“Popular Chinese serving great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

An unexpected gem of a restaurant which served up colourful and tasy dishes. Staff were pleasant and service very good. We had a mixture of the vegetable dishes and the squid which arrived sizzling hot. The place became very busy and we found out later that this is one of the best places to go to locally. It was on the expensive side, but having said that the overall experience and quality made it worth it. I would return without hesitation.

“excellent chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We tried this restaurant recently during our visit to Amsterdam. It serves authentic Cantonese food. Very good quality. Service was efficient. The fixed menu for 2 was of good value. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

“authentic Chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Good Chinese food according to my Chinese friends. Soup before meal and sweats afterwards are all included. We order one clay pot rice, black pepper beef etc. All are very tasty. The quantity is not as big as other Chinese restaurants. But for sure it is no tiny.

“Neat on the whole with some buts...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Glasses dripping with water and not from the washing machine. We all drank from some soup cups.
Quick service (but no intercommunication/no single waiter per table, three insisting on offering to drink)
No sincronization bringing food to guests.
Generous portions, duck was pre cooked (not of the past 3 hours for sure). Chicken was appreciated yet not just done either. Prices were 18.5 and 16.5 respectively. Rice: I saw the owner lady handing a portion to her son... after removing some parts that were evidently unpresentable.
Not to return for me... was full so probable people genereally appreciate it.
Staff was as usual for chinese rests in a hurry and bangy/noisy.

“Food is decisious.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Recommended by locals. Excellent takeout. Restaurant atmosphere neutral and quite Chinatown. Service fine but not effusive. Dishes just great. Cannot fault the food - every dish really good. Would highly recommend, but could be pricey.
