The place was small and we didn't need to queue because there weren't many customers. The price was reasonable, the service was pretty quick with friendly staffs, and the food was pretty tasty. I might... More

Very small place but close to main shopping street. not a large variety of dishes available, but prices are relatively cheap. the chicken with oyster sauce was OK, the pineapple sauce was a bit too sour. rice was good. the food arrived quickly. There isn't much sitting space

Found this Chinese restaurant through TripAdvisor app, and it did not disappoint us. The staff were very friendly, and the delicious food is prepared in front of your eyes! It is very well located, and the price/quality could not be better!

After reading Trip Adviser reviews we visited. Bench seating inside, tables outside. Food was delicious, ordered chicken curries with egg fried rice and sweet pineapple chicken with egg fried rice. Very reasonably priced and quick turnaround, food prepared in front of your eyes. I will return. Tip see photo of map it can be a little hard to find.

The food was delicious and it is cheap. The chef was also very friendly. He made some joke and kept making conversation with us. His wife also very kind.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
