One of the oldest streets of the city, Zeedijk has a rough charm. At one end are chinese restaurants & food stores. At the other (nearer to Central station) are two very old jenever tasting houses. Enjoy !

I recommend you walk the whole minute or so of the street and perhaps visit the temple. However, DO NOT EAT there. It is way too expensive and not good at all. We live in Beijing and my wife was missing her food. She saw...More

The street has a small handful of Oriental restaurants, less than 20. You can walk the section in about 2 minutes. Very disappointing.

This is Amsterdam's version of Chinatown. We came up here very early in the morning so we strolled the empty streets. It was nice to look at the temples which was more of interest to me.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

To my understanding, a lot of restaurants would still open at night until 10:30-11:00pm. However, I don't think the restaurants would so early on Sunday morning.
