“Great value, friendly family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

This small hole in the wall does great stir fry with all fresh ingredients. You can specify just how spicy you would like it, and they have a full range of soft drinks in a big cooler by the door. No beer or alcohol is served. No English spoken, but menus help, and they try hard.

“Excellent chinese, cheap, neat and clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

You can have beef, chicken, shrimps or vegetarian plates for around 7 euros. The kitchen is open and visible to the public and very clean. Amazing quality for the value.

“Great fresh food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

I was looking for a Chinese restraunt with good reviews, and came across this Gem. Fresh food cooked in front of you with whatever sauce style you fancy.
€7.50 for a hearty meal in Amsterdam is a rare find and freshness to boot....
Located on the right side of the main street as if you were leaving Central Station down a small side street , easy to find and great food. Highly recommend.

“Good food, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

We spotted this small restaurant (it is also a take away) while strolling aimlessly from Dam square to the centeral station. It is Located in the side alley of the nieuwendijk street (main road from central station). It is a no frill restaurant run by a middle aged and friendly chinese couple. The menu is limited and simple but the food tasted great. It is great value for money, especially if you are on a tightly budgeted trip. Me and my husband had a sweet corn soup, Gungpao chicken with egg fried rice, chiken curry with fried rice and a bottle of water, all for 20 euros. Highly recommended. I would go there again!

“Good and cheap chinese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

In a side alley of the nieuwendijk street (parallel to the dam (main road from central station). Around other fast food like wok to walk and burger bar I decided to try this tiny restaurant. I like asian food and know how it has to taste. And I was not disappointed. I ordered the Gungbao Chicken with Rice for 7,95€. The staff warned me it would be spicy but that's okay for me. At that time it was a little busy there so the waitress asked me if I would like to walk around and come back in 5 minute. They have a few seats inside and some table and chairs outside. The alley is a but busy so some people tend to stare on your food ;-) After waiting time I got served my meal. Large portion and with a good mixture of noodle, chicken and vegetable. Tasted very delicious and spicy. I was asked twice if not too spicy... If you like chinese fast food don't miss this small jewel.
