My brother and I tried to find a table at this place and the hostess was incredibly rude. She told us with a very bad attitude (almost yelling at us) that we couldn't take a seat because all the tables were reserved. When my brother asked her if it was possible to put us on the waiting list, she yelled... More

Having experienced the expensive prices in many Amsterdam restaurants, we were enticed by a huge banner hanging out front of this eatery advertising a wok full of meat of choice and vegetables for only 5 eruos! We went in. The item out front was NOT on the menu. We ordered it anyway, along with Sieuw Maai (steamed pork and Chicken... More

Never again! A friend and I had dinner at Mr. Tongs. We were enticed by the outside sign showcasing inexpensive meals. When we got the menu, the advertised meals were no where to be found! The dinning area was dirty. There were many inefficient systems in place- too many to name. We sat for more than 30 mins before we... More

My favorite food is Chinese and I travel the world. This place jumped all the way to my 2nd favorite in the entire world. The spring rolls were amazing, the fried dumplings were hands down the best. The hot and sour soup was so hearty it was almost not soup. The flavor was just perfect with the freshest ingredients. The... More

Second time at Mr.Tongs and still fabulous value. The special €5 menu may be limited but it offers a large main course with other extras at nominal cost. The service was quick, without fuss and with excellent customer care. 100m from The Bulldog and adjacent tram stop. Ideal for a low budget weekend.

All the food was absolutely gorgeous and we noticed that it was not... More

We had both lunch and dinner on two different occasions. The menu is pretty simple and the food was great for the price and the wait was not too long (about 10-15mins) Service was ok. Only one waitress but she was pretty efficient.

My husband & I were first attracted here by the offer advertised outside which consisted of a choice of meat, veg or prawns, with a choice of sauce & either fried rice, white rice or noodles for €5, however on entering we decided on something different, for a starter I had 6 small curry samosas & my husband had 2...
