“very average...... little bit dirty”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

This chinese is like 40 years ago, No improvements. Peking duck is like rubber.
Menucart old and dirty. Kitchen...... I couldn't see. Oysters are good, but probably one of the few dishes in this eatery. I won't go back. I am eating because I love good food. When I have to eat at Nam kee I'd rather skip a meal. prices are low, so when you're not a foody and you have to fill your stomach......, this is the place to be!!!!!!

“Food doesn't get much better”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

If you are into Chinese food than this is a must. Do not come here for great service or a cozy ambiance, but only to enjoy the best of Chinese quisine at very reasonable prices

“Delicious but not so friendly”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

The foods were delicious, original hongkong style food. The service was quick but they're not so friendly, the place is a little bit small. It's impossible to bring a stroller to go inside the restaurant. Recommended: Mix grill (pork char siu, pork bbq and roast duck in hongkong style), wan tan soup, pork and tofu.

“Delectable flavors in Amsterdam”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Stopped in while walking through the area. Duck in the window looked good and there was a good crowd inside. What a good choice we made! Staff was great and knowledgeable and spoke great English so they could answer all questions. Started with a wonton soup. The wontons were small and round and very flavorful. The broth was rich and very tasty. Then had the duck. It was cooked perfectly and was simply delicious. After that, we tried a teppan noodle dish and another noodle dish. Both were full of flavor and very enjoyable. The only drawback is that it is a "cash only" restaurant. We went back two more times in the next three days and will certainly enjoy the flavors again on our next trip to Amsterdam.
