It was our last night in Amsterdam and really fancied a good meal and we were not disappointed. This restaurant is about a 5 minute from central station and 15 minute walk from dam square. We didn't book a table but managed to get a seat right away. The decor inside was beautiful and the views just made it more... More

We didn't book a table but were welcomed and only had to wait around 25 mins for a table. The food and service was good and we really enjoyed our meal. Somewhere we will revisit on our next trip to Amsterdam.

Having seen this restaurant from a canal trip on our last visit we went to experience this beautiful restaurant on the recommendation of two of our party. We were not disappointed. The meal was the best ever. The views of the water fountains display, amazing, from our window seat right in front of it. Our waiter Carlo was especially attentive,... More

I'm not sure I could augment the great qualities of the food more than the other reviewers, but the cocktails were also a great reason to come here. The beer is of course Heineken, but they actually offer a good list of long drinks. The foods amazing, the space is amazing, the prices are reasonable unless if you want to... More

I saw this restaurant from a boat cruise that I took last year when I visited amsterdam and had to make a point of coming here when I returned. I have to say that my expectations were low when entering but the food is quite good. The dim sum is quality but nothing was as good as the honey ribs.... More

Great restaurant, 5 minute walk from Centraal station. We had both lunch and dinner and enjoyed the Dim Sum the most. Food is of great quality and service is best during the week. Weekends they can be extremely busy. If you want Chinese in Amsterdam, this is the place to go.

We booked a table at our favourite restaurant in Amsterdam via their own website and requested a table overlooking the Oosterdok. There was a wide choice of dishes on the menu to cater for most tastes; including an excellent vegetarian selection. Be warned, the portion size of the main dishes are large so select carefully if, like us, you share... More

If you want great Chinese food in an over the top Chinese decorated floating mansion of a resturant then this is the place for you. It's a little more expensive than cheap Chinese food but it's 100% worth it. The decor, the service and the location make this resturant a great stop while in Amsterdam.

Thank Greg W

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.
