“It's ok, pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We were suggested to get 4 dishes for each person from their menu. Our waitress said that dishes are smaller and you're supposed to be kind of a mix and match. I wouldn't do that again because portions came out pretty normal. So I'd say get 2 for each person for starters and you can always get more.
We love Asian food but here it wasn't anything special. I think the dishes are overpriced. It's a good looking restaurant with a bar area in the basement but food was ok. We also were told that the food will be out in its order as it should be consumed. But we had to wait longer than expected between dishes.

“Go Asian in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

I've been planning to go to Woo Bros for many months and yesterday I made it. I sure should have gone earlier. The food is delicious, especially if Asian food is your thing and you like eating lots of small dishes and sharing. The food is fresh, very tasty and beautifully presented. The service is good and attentive. You wont go to Woo Bros for the interior design or for the romantic atmosphere, but for the super food which I thought was reasonably priced.

“Good service, bit loud music, ok value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

On a business trip, wanted to eat some Asian near the center and ended up in this restaurant. No reservation however got a free table, ordered few different dishes as advised by the waitress. I would say, all in all it was a "fancy" meal, some things were pretty good, other were average. It was not a cheap meal, but this being downtown A'dam one needs to take that into account I guess. Friendly waitresses, a bit busy so one had to make sure to catch their eye to order, rather loud music, but overall pretty good athmosphere.

“Super Mari-Woo Bros.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We love our Asian food, so visiting an Asian restaurant whilst in Amsterdam for us was a must and Woo Bros was excellent.

The place is easy to find as it's just down the street as the Rembrandt museum (just walk past the museum with it on your right and you'll find Woo Bros just down from there).

The restaurant had a nice vibe and started to fill up and get busy later, so we were glad that we booked ahead.

The staff were very friendly and attentive, keeping us topped up with our wine and water. As with a lot of Asian restaurants, the food comes out in bits and pieces, so we knew what to expect. As the menu recommends, pick 2 or 3 main dishes for the best experience (We went with 3 each, some noodles each and some edamame beans as well!).

The lobster spring roll with garlic aioli was superb (though we could have eaten about 10 more!) as was the soft shell crab, Vietnamese salad and seared tuna. Everything was either really good or great - though the butterfly prawns with mango salsa wasn't the best but still nice.

Price wise it was ok but one of the more expensive places we ate during our time in Amsterdam but we didn't feel short changed as the food was amazing, one of the best Asian restaurants we've been too!

They don't have a huge selection of desserts but was very pleasantly surprised by the ice cream flavours and the spiced layered cake! Lovely evening, great atmosphere with great food, highly recommended!
