On a business trip, wanted to eat some Asian near the center and ended up in this restaurant. No reservation however got a free table, ordered few different dishes as advised by the waitress. I would say, all in all it was a "fancy" meal, some things were pretty good, other were average. It was not a cheap meal, but this being downtown A'dam one needs to take that into account I guess. Friendly waitresses, a bit busy so one had to make sure to catch their eye to order, rather loud music, but overall pretty good athmosphere.

We love our Asian food, so visiting an Asian restaurant whilst in Amsterdam for us was a must and Woo Bros was excellent.

The place is easy to find as it's just down the street as the Rembrandt museum (just walk past the museum with it on your right and you'll find Woo Bros just down from there).

The restaurant had a nice vibe and started to fill up and get busy later, so we were glad that we booked ahead.

The staff were very friendly and attentive, keeping us topped up with our wine and water. As with a lot of Asian restaurants, the food comes out in bits and pieces, so we knew what to expect. As the menu recommends, pick 2 or 3 main dishes for the best experience (We went with 3 each, some noodles each and some edamame beans as well!).

The lobster spring roll with garlic aioli was superb (though we could have eaten about 10 more!) as was the soft shell crab, Vietnamese salad and seared tuna. Everything was either really good or great - though the butterfly prawns with mango salsa wasn't the best but still nice.

Price wise it was ok but one of the more expensive places we ate during our time in Amsterdam but we didn't feel short changed as the food was amazing, one of the best Asian restaurants we've been too!

They don't have a huge selection of desserts but was very pleasantly surprised by the ice cream flavours and the spiced layered cake! Lovely evening, great atmosphere with great food, highly recommended!

Asian dining with a difference, the menu is a mix of many asian countries food and misses out on
particular specialities of any one country, they advise ordering several dishes as the quantities are small and we found that they were quite bland and a mish mash and the drinks were expensive. The waitress was very helpful and attentive. At the end of the evening, the 4 of us agreed we would not be returning.

Simply stated, the kitchen is open late so if you are hungry and walking around looking for a quick bite to eat, this place works. Nothing was special except for maybe the service. We had a duck, beef and fish dish. The noodles were bland but again, okay.

Not my fav but did the trick! (This is what happens if you don't make reservations:)

Went to this restaurant after a long day touring Amsterdam. It's in busy location just a minutes walk from Rembrandt's house. The interior is very spacious and decorated in a vibrant colour scheme. The best way to eat here is to eat in the typical Chinese way, that is to order a selection of dishes to share.

We ordered five dishes between two plus one bowl of noodles and that was plenty. I can recommend the steamed scallops and the green pepper beef.

Overall, really good, and I'd go there again.
