Tai Wu is the place to eat when you favor Chinese food. Good quality food, busy as always and a challenge to get the attention of the waitresses. The place is located in the centre of Rotterdam city and you can combine a nice dinner at Tai Wu with a visit to the many bars, lounge clubs, theatre in the... More

So we're into dim sum for which we even are prepared to travel a bit out of Amsterdam, but were dissapointed with the limited selection. We ordered familiair dishes which were a lot more fried than usual (for us). The restaurant looks good, it has this chinese for Chinese in Holland feel to it, but we were dissapointed. It's not...

Had a surprise when our old dim sum place was closed last Sunday and ended up at this very good Chinese restaurant! Great choice of dim sum as well as other Chinese dished. I would recommend!

Visited Rotterdam for the first time the other day, and I wanted to have lunch in Chinatown. Picked out Tai Wu based on their tripadvisor reviews, as well as the alluring "Gault Millau" stickers on their door. I think all this lead to my expectations being a bit too high. Our meal of dim sum was fine, filling, and inexpensive... More

This is one of the classic chinese restaurants in Rotterdam. Though not so slick and trendy as the other restaurants that are now all around the area, it has still an attraction to lots of chinese. It is usually quite full but you can manage to get a table quite swiftly. Especially the Peking duck is very nice, recommended.

Tai wu is excellent, but the stuff could be friendlier and more attentive. The food is phenomenal! The restaurant it self is a bit old but you really feel like in China.

On June 7 we decided to celebrate the birthday of my brother at Tai Wu. He is really fond of the Cantonese kitchen but we were a bit disappointed in the amount of Cantonese dishes on the menu. However, we decided to take a few dim sum dishes and some other plates with duck, sate ajam (chicken on stick), regular... More

Tai Wu is located in a very busy part of Rotterdam city so it's better to go there with public transport. They have good prices and good food too. Generous portions that can be shared by two or maybe more depending on how much you eat of course. Their Peking duck is one of the best I've had so far... More

Booked by one of our friends, we visited the restaurant on a Saturday evening. We sat a round table with the four us and each ordered their favorite to share. I choose the half Peking duck , which was served with sauce, shredded lettuce and little rice pancakes. I missed the chili though: the duck was perfectly glazed, and all... More

The restaurant may look a little too grand and maybe dated, but food is definately good and considering it is just a very short walk across from Centraal Station Rotterdam, the price is not too costly. As a matter of fact the portion was larger that i would have expected, real god value for money and centrally located.
