We went to this hotel based on a recommendation in the lonely planet guidebook. It's located on a street filled with restaurants just off Leidseplein. Menu is extensive and has all the usual Chinese offerings and more! We were delighted to see that the restaurant was filled with Chinese people when we arrived- always a sign of a great Chinese...

A small restaurant just a min walk from Leidseplein square in Amsterdam! If you are a group of more than 6 people it is better to book a circle table. The service was okay since it was friday and it was crowded however the food was delicious! We had more than 6 dishes! In the end we had a traditional... More

This restaurant is just very near the Leidseplein. Very often after a night out in the weekends, instead of fast food, we go here. It's open until 03.00 in the weekends (but check google first). Love the deep fried salty chicken, the Chinese veggies and the tender beef.

Was recommended to my son and we went for a quick dinner. Full of Chinese patrons - always a good sign. Food was far better than average Chinese restaurants, decor plain, service good, mid price.

This restaurant is very good - you have to love oriental food though and Chinese to be more precise. Like many Chinese restaurants it's not that up market as Western standards in terms of posh interior - but the food..... wow. just wow! Go and try - you will be pleasantly surprised.

First of all, this actually is a pretty damn good place for proper Cantonese style cuisine. The duck, roast and BBQ pork are good and the dim sum is decent. Second of all, as long as they get to know you, the service is ok. But if they don't know you from Adam, they tend to treat you a bit... More
