“DIM SUM!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Our family adores dim sum and we have felt a total withdrawal since living in Brussels. To our surprise while visiting Amsterdam, we came across a restaurant with dim sum. We were in heaven. Now my review can be a heart's desire, but we really did love all of our dishes. Our favorite, rice noodle with shrimp and vegetarian dumplings. Everything was hot, well prepared and made us so very very happy. That is a 5 in my book!

“The dim sum place to be!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Eating chinese with the chinese. This is a good place for a fine dim sum lunch, the variety is quite big, the quality high.
In the weekends you line up together with big chinese families here before you get a table. (making a reservation can be wise)
The staff may be a little indifferent, but that's rather chinese.
I return here regularly, have taken loads of friends, colleagues, families here, who've also become returning guests.

“Plain and fancy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

This is a bit of a weird place to visit. When you enter, the restaurant is full of Chinese customers (which is generally a very good sign), and the atmosphere has something genuinely non-Amsterdam. The waitresses are generally not that warm and friendly in welcoming you. However, the food is excellent and unpretentious. It goes beyond the traditional chicken curry or sweet and sour shrimps, and it tastes wonderful. I would advice this restaurant to everyone.

“Fantastic dim sum.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Have been here before and were so glad to find the quality of the food has not changed.. We had a canal view this time, which made the experience even more enjoyable. Quick service and wonderful choice. Will definitely come back next time we come to Amsterdam..
