Easting Chinese food in the Netherlands may not see logical but for us it was a pleasant meal. We were staying at a hotel away from the train station and the weather was AWFUL so we wanted something close. Sea Palace was an easy walk and offered a nice selection of good food. They were very busy that night but made room for us so that we could be on time for a tour we wanted. Selection was good, food was very good, and wait staff was excellent. There may be better places to eat in Amsterdam but this place certainly is among the good choices.

This place looks amazing. Is in a great location with stunning decor but that's all you get.

We arrived without a booking so we were told to wait in the bar. It didn't seem busy but we had to wait about half an hour for a table and we were starving.

While we were waiting, a waiter was preparing a fish for a customer on a trolley in the bar area and he dropped the fish head on the floor!!! I know accidents happen but it was pretty disgusting and took ages to clean up.

When we were finally seated and finally served food it was very average. The prawn crackers were two massive slabs that were SO dry I could barely eat them. I ordered Char Sui pork which was nice but it was just a massive pile of fatty meat with barely any veg to break it up so it was a struggle to finish.

Overall was an average meal but the prices were extortionate!!! We had a meal in a little restaurant the night before which was ten times nicer for half the price so I really would not bother with this place.

Tourist trap with a capital T. Bad atmosphere, bad service and bad quality. Very dated, very nineties and time for a change. So many better options in Amsterdam

Service is fast and furious in this restaurant when they get going. The food is very good - I was expecting it to be low quality tourist food, but it was as good as you'll get in an Amsterdam Chinese restaurant. I'd recommend going here for dim-sum on a Sunday lunch time. It's busy, but very enjoyable.
