“China in Holland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

The service is ok, Asian people are not very known for their great hospitality outside their country, but the food was worth it. Chicke Kung Pao the best and the curry dish were very tastefull.

“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

It was mainly good. Unfortunately I have to choose between average and very good, but it is just good. Good service, good food. I don't recognise the comments from the previous reviewer. We ate with a party of six and all were very happy with the quality and quantity of food. I think that that's also the reason why it was completely full, not a small feat for a Chinese restaurant in Amsterdam.

“Nasty greasy disappointment!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Having walked our feet off we were delighted to find this very attractive looking Chinese around the the corner from our hotel. The menu looked great and we were greeted by friendly staff in a beautiful restaurant. We ordered starters, mains and rice. The starters arrived and were delicious - a really good Peking Soup and superbly fresh Egg Roll. The main courses arrived and looked great. This is where the problems started. My Beef with Spring Onions and Ginger was swimming with grease and tasted of nasty burnt fat - it was revolting! I could tell that the ingredients were of a very high quality - really good tender beef and fresh spring onions. They were completely ruined by atrocious cooking. My wife had ordered Tofu in a special 'Ma Po' chilli sauce. The Tofu had not been seared and was mushy and tasteless and again was floating on nasty greasy chilli oil. Once again, but less obvious, there was a horrid burnt after taste. We called the waitress and explained the problem and said we couldn't eat the food. We offered to pay for the starters and drinks. We were asked to wait as the chef wanted to speak to us. After 10 minutes of being ignored we were suddenly presented with the bill for what we had consumed - no explanation - nothing. I suspect that this place might be capable of good cooking but on this occasion the food was vile. Exercise caution.
