“One of my favourite restaurants in Amsterdam. Refined perfection.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

Excellent service, high quality food prepared in a refined manner, and a nice, quiet, romantic environment. A bit on the formal side, so dress appropriately. That said, we've come in jeans and a sweater and have been just fine. The servers are so nice here that you always feel welcomed. We have been many times and will return.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We went here on 20th October. From the time you enter the restaurant you are transported into a different world. Your coats are taken at the door and put in a sliding cupboard. Once seated you are not given the menu but served with a pureed chilli drink and pasta parcel filled with finely chopped mushrooms and chillis.

We then ordered our starter king prawn and fillet of beef, The beef was so tender and tasty. The main course we had corn fed chicken, duck and spicy prawns with fried rice. The food is so tender and tasty. Like no other Chinese you have had.

The staff were friendly and attentive. And the most impressive thing is that the same level of care and quality has been bestowed upon the toilets as the restaurant itself. Which is a mark of truly perfect hosts.

We really cannot wait to go back!

“A blend of Asian cuisines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Recommended to book a table (through www.iens.nl done in 3 clicks).
Welcoming and attentive staff - fine table setting (tablecloth, decoration), we were sitting in the "window" or you can choose a more intimate ambiance inside the restaurant.
We chose the 4-course menu, bit more expensive (€45), but value for money. It is fine dining, (so do not expect copious portions), well balanced choices of products and mix of tastes (nothing to compare with the "traditional-european" chinese-japanese restaurants).
Let yourself be recommended a wine (even the one not on the card). English-spoken.

“Excellent refined Cuisine overlooked by many”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Since we run a B&B (Prince Henry Private Suites) we are always on the lookout for good restaurant to recommend, especially when it is rather close by. This one is a 100 meter form where the Vondelpark begins. Owing to its reputation for cheapness and modelling to Dutch taste the reputation of Chines restaurants has suffered many dents. However, this also implies that this restaurant offers exquisite dishes at affordable prices. The manager is also a sommelier and the Chardonnay house white is delicious. However, if you have something to celebrate you should not limit,it yourself to that. This is the best Chinese food we have had in years and my wife is a professional chef herself. very warmly recommended.
