“Amsterdam Chinese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Not an obvious choice for eating out in Amsterdam, but I'm glad we opted for an expensive evening out!

Great service in a striking floating restaurant with great food.

The aromatic duck was fantastic, as were the main meals that followed.

Recommended.

“Forgot us!!!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We sat down and ordered our drinks and we got normal coke instead of diet coke and the Wrong type of beer :-(
We then ordered our starters and the lady said she would come back and take our main order
We got our starters and they were all wrong again :-(
We ordered more drinks and we got normal coke again instead of the diet coke we ordered :-(
We then waited for someone to clear the table of our starter plates and take our mains order but when we got the attention of someone they said the kitchen was shut, we said you are joking and he said he wasn't :-(
He then said he will speak to the manager and after 15 to 20 mins he came back and said he could do nothing for us and said he could do us a cold desert, what a total joker!!
I then said I would like the bill and paid and left, they did say sorry but what good was that as they ruined one of our nights in Amsterdam :-(
No manager came over!!
They were too busy taking pics of people and having a laugh at the bar to bother with us :-(
I did tell them that I would write about out treatment but they didn't care
Very unprofessional restaurant and Manager

“Really good -but expensive food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

Really nice Chinese food. A big menu with a lot of options. The dishes with veal/beef are fantastic and fish is also good. The location is very convenient: just 5-minute walk from Central Station. Average cost per person around 50 €

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Thought of going there for some years now, finally did it. Disappointing. The duck had more bones than meat. Saté was just that, nothing next to accompany it. Staff was friendly.

“special meal venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

My wife and I went there as we had passed it in our canal tour and really liked the look of it.It was my wife,s birthday so I ordered a bottle of champagne to ask if we could celebrate her birthday before ordering our dinner.Nothing was a problem to the staff who were very pleasant and efficient.We could see other dishes being served and thought wow there is no way we could manage a main course each so we ordered a starter each and shared a main course.it was just as well as we just managed to finish it - the quality of the food was superb and it was not overly expensive either.To our surprise the waiter then came along with a cake with a sparkling candle on top along with another 2 waiters and sang happy birthday to her.What a lovely way to end our meal.This was probably the best Chinese meal we have ever eaten.It was fascinating to see on the way out a cold water tank with several lobsters in it which if you had chosen lobster you would have got to pick your own.
