1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had booked a window seat, I had e-mail confirmation of such, but we were told on arrival (rudely) that they had no knowledge of the request and told us that no window seats were available. We ordered two starters to share with some prawn crackers. Only one starter came and no prawn crackers. We asked for the other 2... More

You get large sharing bowls for around €20-€30 euro and a bowl of rice each and dig in. Best Chinese food I've ever had, doesn't work out overly expensive either when splitting the bill. It's work going just to have a look at the decor inside the place.

This is one of two restaurants we always head to for dim sum (locals know the other one I'm talking about). Never disappoints. Great for large groups. Go early!

We live in Singapore - and we know what Chinese food should taste like. Service - unfriendly, expensive and the food mediocre at best . Give it a miss 👎🏻

We had made reservations beforehand and were seated at a table near the window at the waterfront. With the light festival we therefore had a wonderful view. The service was very friendly, even though it could take some time before they had time for us, it was very busy. The food was very nice. Two of us had the Peking... More

My partner and I were so excited about our reservation here as we booked online months in advance for our trip to Amsterdam. The restaurant floats on a canale and looks quite spectacular all lit up. The building is amazing and location is stunning, but sadly the owners are just not making the most of the place. No table cloths... More

We waited 1 hour for 3 plates of simple fried noodles, everyone else around us got their order before we did, even though they came after us. The waiters were rude, and sometimes ignored us. After the food we ordered cocktails, and while we were finishing our drinks, we noticed that they impatiently waited for us to leave, and came... More

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.
