Exzellent chines food, very friendly service. I had the braised duck wich was excellent. Tender meat, crispy skin, not fat at all. The interior is old and charmingly outdated. Would definitely come back.

I like spicy food and I've been to Sichan (China) several time. This restaurant was a natural choice. The food is somewhat westernised (for me a good thing), but is quite original and different from the other Chinese in town. We found our two dishes really good, well spiced and tasty. Sizzling beef (quite spicy), spicy-sour chicken (full of different... More

The food was excellent and attractively presented, service was friendly and competent, and the location was lively and interesting. Sit outside to experience the entertaining street life while enjoying your meal!

unfortunately there weren't any vegetarian options apart from tempura and noodles, very disappointing. my collegues from work ate the duck, one of them got very ill the following night (and said he wouldn't eat anymore duck for the rest of his life).

This restaurant is a hidden gem. We started off with dim sum appetizers. Then we had the peking duck prepared in various ways. The food was amazing and beautifully presented. The service was also outstanding. Highly recommended.

Nice little restaurant just up from the flower market. I was expecting a reasonably good meal after reading the reviews, but had little hope of excellence for Chinese food in Amsterdam. With the exception of some very good Dim Sum I have been disappointed, but this was an exception. It was excellent. We had some good mixed fried and steamed... More

When over-nighting in Amsterdam prior to a flight back to the USA, I have made it an objective to dine here. It started with a friend's recommendation to dine at another Chinese restaurant, but alas they were booked for the evening. So I asked for the name of the second best Chinese restaurant and got the response "We are. The... More

We live in Amsterdam, so we know a lot about the restaurants in our town, and we can say with certainty that this the best Chinese restaurant in our city. We love to come here for the 3 course duck menu, it never disappoints! The staff is very friendly, experienced and helpful. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone!
