It might be my only visit to Alexander's but I won't forget how good the food was. The menu is vast and the owner describes it as Western Chinese food. She recently won best Chinese chef outside of China ! We chose the Beijing Banquet of duck in every way. The duck soup was good, the pancake rolls were ok.... More

We've been here a couple of times recently and while the first time was excellent,we had a couple of small issues the second time. It was still a very good experience however. The food is outstanding - really well presented and everything we've tried has been really tasty - the fish and beef dishes are particularly good. Beer and wine... More

4 friends having a cosy Saturday evening out and it was the company that made the evening. We had chosen the place because it for several years has been featured in the dutch restaurant magazine Lekker. We had a 3 course sharing menu served asian style. Combinations of servings was a collection from the menu after the chefs choice. The... More

We were a group of 8 hungry music educators, eating together after an international music festival. The food was very varied, tasty, and plentiful. Nice beers too. They speak excellent English, as well as Dutch, of course.

Yes, you can eat the 'usual suspects' at this restaurant: meaning dishes that every typical Chinese restaurant might serve. And supposedly they are of excellent quality. They have a buffet, and that also is supposed to be excellent. I would not know, because I've came here for the fine dining, which is listed on a separate menu. Their fine dining,... More

Tonight I wanted to treat the family and took them to Alexander. We had been there before and really enjoyed our first stay. We arrived at 19:00 hrs and by 19:30 we were finally able to get the attention of the staff to take our orders. By 20:00, there still was no food. We checked with the waitress, she was... More

One would not expect to find such a "fine cuisine" in the suburb Stevenshof opposit of the commuterstation " de Vink". However for those who see beyond this rather offgrid location and who sit down for dinner, it will be clear soon this is not your typical Chinese restaurant. Table linnen and wine glasses in a Clubmed-like restaurant and an... More

Chinese Restaurant Alexander in Leiden-NL offers one the best, finest, and modern Chinese cuisines that can be found in the province South Holland in The Netherlands and beyond. Next to your gums, also your wallet will enjoy this excellent experience.

When with a group where some do not eat pork and others no beef... you can easily eat here because they just pul something else form their sleeve. Friendly, fast service, a variation of tastes and the typical Chinese round table to keep sharing, tasting and spinning the food.
