“Great fusion food for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

I ran in this restruant accidentally, and was very pleased indeed.
The served food is great value for money.
the restruant offers an interesting culinary - a fusion between asian, carribean and suriname food.
Sadly, the restruant atmosphere is pretty poor and not inviting - which may lead to false assumptions on the place's quality.
I deffinetaly enjoyed the food and came again several times again during my visit in AMS.

“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Decor and layout gives this place more of a cafe feel than a restaurant but there is no denying the excellent value for money it offers, even drinks are reasonably priced by Amsterdam standards.
We loved the food here and visited it a couple of times during our visit, the service was somewhat lacking but we find this common in most Chinese restaurants, never mind a Chinese restaurant in the Netherlands!

“Good food for a very good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Whenever I go to Amsterdam, I make sure to stop by Kam Yin to have a Moksi Meti (mixed meat) with bami. :-) Oh yeah, and a pink Fernandez ("Cherry bouquet") soft drink as well. No need to get any starters here while you wait for your main course, because some five minutes after you've ordered, your meal will be served. If you're looking for a romantic dinner for two, you might want to go somewhere else, though, because the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. This being said, many Surinamese go to eat there, and if if it's good enough for them, it's certainly good enough for me as well!

“Not a restaurant with a constant quality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

This Chinese restaurant isn't the coziest one for a couple in love, but that wouldn't be a problem if the food is good - in other words not rotten. Unfortunately that happened to us. However, I have eaten on other occasions a good diner here.

“Tasty Surinamese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

We ate at this no frills restaurant on our first evening in Amsterdam as we wanted to try Surinamese food which is a fusion of Chinese/Indonesian food. The restaurant was very busy but we managed to get a table for the two of us without having to wait. We started with hot and sour soup which was delicious and then I had a chicken and rice dish while my husband opted for noodles and chicken. The food was very tasty and there was plenty of it. Our bill for the two courses with drinks came to 31 euros! No wonder the queue for tables soon build up. Would definitely go back.
