Had our dinner at Nam Kee . Food not too bad. But the service a bit sucks. Overall experience: 3 star.

Many times we come here for dinner, and often we order their delivery service, most of the times its good. Unfortunately, it is nowadays less tasty. The sauces are full with the cornstarch clumps. Too salty with a few dishes. Its not bad, just compared with how it was before. They can do better.

Meal was excellent. Peking duck was good. Sweet and sour chicken was more than our expectation, taste wise. And... Nam Kee has their homemade ice chinese tea that is very refreshing, one glass is definitely not enough.

Having dined at the 2 other Nam Kee's in Amsterdam for over 10 years upon returning to Amsterdam i was pleased to see another in the Amsterdam Pijp. But the one in the Pijp was a huge disappointment. I ordered a ice tea and the waiter brought me a Lipton ice tea. When i said i meant their homemade iced... More

This is one of those places I keep going back to whenever I visit Amsterdam. Their oysters in their "secret sauce" is to die for just like their salt & pepper shrimps. Yummm. Delicious food, not your average Chinese take out. Whenever I go, I make sure we have reservations because they are always full.

Just average dinner with omelette, chicken, fish, beef and cooked vegetable. Nothing special about the food. The place was rather dark. But location is easy to find.

The soups are super, as well as the vegies & other menu. But the staffs are very grumpy. They can even move you when you already pick your seat. They don't like customers with baby stroller. But amazingly, the restaurant is always packed. Not only at the lunch or dinner time. Well, just enjoy the food, forget the grumpy faces!

We already order some take out in a different day before actually eating in the place. The food is decent and the portions are big but nothing special. The highlight of our visit on this restuarant is how rude the chinese waiter is (the one without eyeglasses) it's like we own it to him that we're eating there and that... More

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
