“Excellent Chinese food, nouvelle cuisine, brilliant philosphy”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

This restaurant had a make-over about a year ago and wow, a fresh, modern atmosphere, but still very welcoming!
The food is different than the average Dutch Chinese restaurant, you don't go here 'just to have a quick bite', no: here you really get to taste the food, the flavours, the hospitallity and the ambiance.
You of course can taste some traditional Chinese dishes, but you can also get some smaller dishes, a bit more experimental. The presentation is lovely, every plate looks picture perfect.
Every month they serve a special themed menu, which takes you on a journey through the orient. They serve matching wines, the wine menu is great, which you don't often seee at Chinese restaurants. The waiters are perfectly up to speed with wine menu and can recommand which wine to get.

After a vist you really feel pampered, so I keep coming back (buy the way: when you have a discountpass, the price isn't that high, especially with the service and quality of food!)

“They offer special stuff...”
Reviewed December 17, 2007

They offer special stuff that you can't find in an average chinese restaurant in Holland (the Peking Duck Salad is good). Doesn't come for free though.
