“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

This tiny restaurant has hearty Chinese meals that taste great for short money in Amsterdam. The staff is helpful and friendly, and a few means here keeps costs of a vacation under control.

“Fast authentic chinese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Stumbled upon this little cafe on the way to Amsterdam Central station. Neatly tucked in an alley, with simple decor but nice ambiance. With a reasonable menu and price, I decided to walk in.
I ordered the (7) Yu Xiang prawns with rice and hot tea, cost 9,45 euro. Portion was generous and Wow!! it was delicious!! I will go back there again if i am in Ams.

“good restaurant in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

It is a really good restaurant in Amsterdam. Though it's small, I can feel the friendly atmosphere here. Food is nice. I even ate 2 times when I was in Amsterdam! It's such a good feeling as well when I found that we have same family name. :D
Enjoy delicious rice, meet, chicken and sauce!
這是一間很棒的小餐廳! 雖然空間不大,但可以感受到老闆和老闆娘親切的態度和友善的氣氛,環境也很乾淨。我待在阿姆斯特丹的四天內就吃了兩次!
希望你也能享受這家餐廳的米飯、肉、雞,和令人喜愛的醬汁!

“Good and fresh Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This place took over from the Doner Kebab place that had been in this location for a long time. I'm sorry to see it go but this place is a nice replacement. My Kung Pao Chicken was tasty. Friendly folks (the Yu's I'm guessing) run the place. This is a great stop for a quick stir fry meal.
