Beautiful restaurant inside & out. Great atmosphere and accomodating. As there were 10 of us eating they recommended we have a mixture of dishes we were served in the middle of the table. Delicious !!

We go often to eat there for lunch and we always have the dim-sum which is really well prepared and kind service.

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

At the time of my visit, they had specials that gave you the option of purchasing a group meal (2 or more) and sample a few option.

The restaurant is large and so I expect you would get a table OK without a booking, (we did), but given its for a special event Its probably best to book (better safe than sorry!).
