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.

I was really craving some Chinese but feel like we probably should've just went to the wok to walk or wok to go places that are next door. The space is clean and modern but the food is just meh. For the prices I was expecting more authentic yummy Chinese food be this was not it. We got: spring rolls,... More

We found this restaurant because there was such a line at the one we had planned to visit. The food was really good - fresh and tasty. The service was great and it was overall very enjoyable.

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.
