“Nice dinner, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We had a table on the first floor, overlooking the canal and were sitting in the evening sun. The food was really tasty and there was a wide selection on the menu. It was a little pricey but not too expensive for Amsterdam. Service was efficient but quite business like.

“Always a pleasure to come here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

I've been coming here for almost 40 years. It's the place for Chinese Dim Sum for Chinese people and the last decade more and more dutch people have find this place. The price is fair, food is good, place is clean, staff is wonderful and the location is great. Rush hours are from 12.00am-3.00pm. If you wanna have lunch here make reservations. Accept in the weekends, they don't take reservations. Have Dim sum here and go shopping afterwards and enjoy Amsterdam.

“Great food, average service”

Great dim sum, very busy, average service!

Would go back, although it was very busy and many people were being turned away.

“go here for dim sum (yum cha)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

As many others have said, this is the place in Amsterdam for dim sum. One helpful tip though: if you don't want to spend half an hour on the stairs waiting for a table, call them the day before and book a table. Especially on Saturdays and Sundays, the place is crowded. I go there about once a month, so I apologise if it happens to be me you that keeps you waiting ;-)

“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!
