“Best Crispy Duck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

by far the best crispy duck we ever had, service could have been better but the food is outstanding. Restaurant is situated in the busy area which is very nice. Definitely its a place where i would recommend everyone to visit.

“Just Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Food was okay. Nothing special. Service was subpar.
We went with their special "Crispy Duck" which was overcooked, as well as a vegetarian which was also overcooked.

“Average food, lousy service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Mr Tong prides itself on being a veteran restaurant founded in 1948, but you could not tell from the food or service. The food was average at best, and the service was terrible. One waitress actually told us off for placing a plate on an empty table next to us saying "it has already been cleaned". Our table was too small to hold the small number of dishes we ordered.

The "Crispy duck" they advertise was too fatty and the pancakes and other items arrived minutes after the duck itself.

Not recommended.

“Amazing crispy duck and sizzling plates!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here to keep our son happy as he'd seen the 'Crispy Duck our specialty" sign earlier and was desperate to try it. They weren't wrong about this as it was amazingly crispy and huge! My wife and I both had different sizzling plate deals which were big, delicious and came with a number of other things.
This is in a very touristy area but the food was excellent with friendly service and was great value. Ok their English wasn't good, but so what!

“BEST EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This was my second visit to Mr Tong's (once last year and once this month). The food is absolutely amazing. Very very tasty. ery good service. Reasonable prices compared to our previous nights meal at a steakhouse.
I will definitely be eating here again on my next visit to Amsterdam!
