The Nam Kee branches serves good Chinese food for an extremely affordable price in Amsterdam. The roast duck is deli and the oysters are a try too. The service, well is just okay just be nice :)

No doubt the best Chinese restaurant in Amsterdam. We have been here multiple times and it never disappoints. My favourite is the beef with Chinese broccoli.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
