I met another person here for dim sum, so I didn't select the restaurant. You take stairs to the second floor where many of the tables are placed against windows with a nice view. The service was friendly and that part was just fine. The...More

It’s been many years since I ate here. Having come back, I realised why I gave it a miss for such a long time; Oriental City serves overpriced, lukewarm and not very tasty food. The pork I ordered was positively cold and when I pointed...More

Visited here and it was very expensive! A portion of rice was €16! At home we can get it for £10! Also when the chicken came it was rubbery and watery... (we pick it out and eat the rice). We had crispy duck too which...More

If you really really crave for Chinese food, then go here. But you'll be disappointed. I didn't enjoy the dim sum or other dishes I ordered.

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

For 4 of us, we spent about euros 60 odd so it was not pricey. Dim sum are small dishes like tapas so it depends on how many dishes you order.
