You can't expect much for 5 euro and this restaurant proves it. However its a good plateful if you just want filling up and have no idea what Chinese food tastes like. The bad attitude waitress is to die for. It must take skill to throw a plate down on a table that hard without breaking it. As soon as... More

Good value, a good sized plateful for 5 euro. We had the spring rolls and the wok dish. It was very tasty. Not as fast as I thought it would be served up, but it was Saturday! Some were just having the 5 euro plate and no drinks! I intend to visit again before we leave.A nice deal.

Some reviews might be correct. I'd just had my lunch there. The quality was ok but you're not in Hong Kong or Taipei. You're in Amsterdam. The standard is similar to most city centre restaurants in Europe. For 5 Euros, which is cheaper than my canteen, I should not expect much. Mind you, it's 6.50 Euros a meal in macdonalds... More

Not read the reviews before eating here. Good because the duck and pancakes were good and plentiful. Did have some tough spring onions but these were exchanged when we pointed it out.

This is some bad Chinese food, folks. Maybe the guy finishing a doob at the table outside should have been a hint, but we were tired and my kid wanted to go in. The waitress (who, by the way, isn't as rude as people have said--I think it's just how she talks. . .she kind of barks at you) was... More

I live in area and went here for the first time. The waitress was so rude and to say it was bad service is an understatement! Not completely surprising for a tourist trap restaurant but even by those standards this was something else. I wouldn't recommended it to anyone, there are plenty of other great places to eat in the... More

Ordered wok and rolls and coke and water. Tasted average, plenty of whit rice and chicken was okay. Vegetables were good. It'd be your take out Chinese foods, nothing more. The waitress were not as great as she should be but it looks like she is only one working on front house.

All the other reviews on trip advisor are right. Rude staff, kitchen incapable of getting food out at the same time. Definitely avoid.

The food was average and would be for your local Chineses takeaway, so in comparison is also very expensive for what it is. Service was terrible. In fact to describe it as "service" is completely misleading. First they lost our order, and after 30mins had to admit it and re- take the order. The first course was served on salad... More
