This was recommended by hotel staff so undertook the 20 minute walk to get there. Decor was completely over the top and tacky, service was very average, menu was very limited especially for chicken dishes. The food was also average, all of which I could have lived with if they hadn't charged over 20 euros for main - just felt totally ripped off!

We had a good meal here in terms of food quality and service -also has really good views as you are on a floating restaurant. However, it is very expensive. There is also a fairly limited choice of dishes vs other Chinese restaurants. Having said that the food was good quality - just not quite worth the price.

This is a special restaurant floating at the water close to the Amsterdam Centraal. It lights up pretty in the evening.
Considering this place seats 700(!) it is maybe not so unexpected to find it quite noisy. And the food took "forever" to appear.
However, the size of the portions is like most Chinese Restaurants(?) large. You could easily serve two with one dish, although we also managed to empty two :-) The food is nothing out of the ordinary. Very (read: Too) mild, accommodating Europeans, I guess. More spice (taste) would have been appreciated.
The prices were maybe a little at the high end for Chinese, but ok.

Floating Chinese restaurant right in front of the library. Massive building - can accommodatie 700 people! Service was quick and efficiënt. But in my opinion, food was just ok, on the pricey side. Customers were a mix of locals and tourists. Wouldn't go out of my way for a meal here but if I were around the area and had a craving for Chinese, I would go back.
