The lady patrolling the street is very efficient. Once she sees you eye the restaurant, you will be ushered to a table. Service is a bit on the slow side once in, but not bad. I had a prawn chow mein, which was pretty good. My son had the roasted duck. He did not like it and I have to... More

Great little find! If you’re wanting a nice meal in Amsterdam where you can sit down and relax after all the hustle and bustle, this restaurant is fantastic. The food is amazing, the new decor is really good and the staff were friendly. We were enticed in by a tourist offer that was great value for money, but the whole... More

Stopped here amongst the chaos to grab a bite for lunch. They had a tourist rice plate for €7,95 which had a few options served with rice and salad and Chinese tea. My partner got Thai Sweet Chilli Chicken which was quite similar in taste to sweet n' sour. However decent balance of chicken and vegetables and decent portion sizes... More

Nice restaurant. Decor far nicer than photos show. Seems to have been renovated. Was clean and comfortable. Waiter was helpful and efficient. Food was nice but not amazing. Fried chicken was not very good quality chicken but chicken seemed fine in the curry and sweet and sour Hong Kong style. Would happily eat there again as it met our needs... More

We stopped in here for something a bit different than what we've been having throughout the Netherlands, and were very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is small, and the food and service is excellent. We highly recommend you stop in here for some Chinese food.

Thank Patricia M

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.
