Arrived around 10 past nine and the place was virtually empty. The waiter, his first day, was totally unable to answer any questions we had regarding the menu. He called over another staff member who was rude taking our order. I guess they were trying...More

Every month we go for a family dinner or lunch and this one is one of our favourites in Chinatown. Fast service, great food! Our favourites are Peking Duck, Chinese greens and Hong Kong style beef.

It's a pleasure to eat at such an honestly good restaurant. Consistent quality, excellent variety and something for everyone from gluten free to carnivores. Go for the eggplant/tofu and peppers stuffed with fish and the duck.

I went to Nam Kee 2 days ago and, since that night, Ive had terrible stomach ache and fever. I had rice with fried chicken which was more alive than dead (raw). Even though I avoided the chicken, I still got sick.

At Nam Kee you can find authentic and tasty Chinese food. Fair prices and good service. It's often very busy, so it's common to wait in line for a bit before seating.

Same here, my trip to Amsterdam is short this time but it's incomplete without tasting Nam Kee's food :-) So on my way home from a shoot (commercial directed by a dear friend) I dropped by the restaurant on my way home to take away...More

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
