“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

In down town Amsterdam, close by the Central Station, the Dam square and the red-light neigbourhoud ("De Walletjes"), is this non-pretentious Chinese-Indonesian-Suriname restaurant. Both for pick-up as well as sit-down eating.
The menu is quite extensive and varied. The portions are very generous and the price is very friendly.
Personally, I recommend the Babi-Pangang (roasted pork belly with a sweet sour sauce).

“Just fast food: very ordinary indeed”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

If you want to eat before getting beered up in the streets around, it's OK. But this is nothing special at all (despite being the being the featured restaurant in the Oude Zijde in one well known and quite up-market guide book: just goes to show, treat guide books with great caution !!). We had the rijstaffel which gives you a lot of food for the money but it's all pre-prepared ; nothing seemed freshly cooked at all. Draft Heineken is nice , though, much better than the bottled or canned stuff. I suppose it serves a purpose but our local Chinese in south London is far better.

“Disgusting”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

The only benefit of this place is it's inexpensiveness within the city center. Other than that the food and service was truly horrific!
