I love this place - so down to earth and amazing food. When you get seated you might get put on a random table with other diners but that is all part of the fun. Amazing food and cheap prices. Definetly a local favourite

The restaurant is famous in the Netherlands due to its appearance in the Dutch movie "De oesters van Nam Kee". It's located in the middle of the small Chinatown of Amsterdam. It also has the typical Chinatown appearance: roasted ducks hanging in front of the window, a Spartan interior, fluorescent lamps. Considering the look of the restaurant, you don't want... More

I visit this place quite often. There is always a waiting line, so prepare to wait or walk arround. The receiver will mark your name and let you know when to expect a table and you can walk around meanwhile. Definatly worth the wait. It is that good - the food, atmosphere. It just always hit the right spot when... More

The food is delicious and it is absolutely an ideal place to taste the Chinese food. Besides, the price is not experience, you can be extremely full and satisfied with only €10 per person. Excellent service with warm welcome, we feel at home!!!

Surprised to see a framed award on the wall for best Chinese Restaurant in the Netherlands a few years ago. I'll admit it was good but surely not worthy of a national award unless Chinese cuisine is not to a very high standard in the Netherlands. Enjoyed the Spring Rolls but the Chicken and Sweetcorn soup and Main courses were... More

Followed a lonely planet recommendation. Whilst it doesn't win any interior design awards, the food did not disappoint, very generous portions, great value for money and excellent mouthwatering dishes. Delicious. The staff are very friendly too

Not a fancy restaurant, but do expect authentic chinese food (hong kong). Amazing BBQ meat. Fast service. Reasonable priced too!

In my life so far I have lived 11 years in China, 10 years in Singapore and have visited Hong Kong and Taiwan. So I've tasted numerous Chinese dishes of various cooking styles---Northern China, Sichuanese, Cantonese, Hokkien and so on. I'm fussy when it comes to food, but trust me, this place serves good, authentic Chinese (primarily Cantonese) dishes. I... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
