After a great boat trip around the canals I was feeling pretty hungry. Saw this little restaurant which looked quite busy. Went in sat down and looked through the menu. Wasn't long before a dish caught my eye. Ordered and it came pretty quick. Service was excellent and food was amazing. Be careful though. Dishes are large so probably don't... More

Normally I never give bad reviews, but this was very unusual. With my family we go to the same restaurant but this time we thought give another restaurant a try, bad choice. The inexperienced waitress spilled hot soup over me and they only apologised without any further assistance. It hurt like h*ll! No empathy at all. Fortunately I know how... More

We were a group of friends looked for warm/hot food restaurant in Amsterdam, so we looked for a chinese restaurant. We thought this restaurant would be good. However we ended up very dissapointed. The food is average, taste like any other chinese restaurant. nothing special, except maybe the tofu fish which was quite ok. We found the service was very... More

the Queue can be annoying but totally worth it, over time you get use to it eyeballing strangers to hurry up with thier food, the moment you sit trust me you wont remember there was a queue or care about people on it. however insist in opening your water yourself to break the seal, saw something am not sure off,...

Food was delicious, service was friendly & fast & restaurant was busy & had lots of personality. All in all, a great evening. Portions were big & filling & the prices reasonable. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you're in the mood for Chinese dining.

Turned up at about 8.45pm and didn't wait long for a table. Food is tasty and service was generally good but the big portions that everyone mentions here are completely true. We hadn't eaten most of the day and we still barely ate half the food in front of us. A lot of people take doggy bags out with them.

Be ready to stand in line during peak hours and the food is really good. We tried two soups that were really good and the duck which is a popular dish.

Like Fawlty Towers, minus the humour. First the waitress mixed up the starter order - a tower of fry arrived (we had ordered steamed). When we pointed this out she told us we were wrong - as one of our party cant eat fry, this was dubious at best. She then proceeded to tell us that we had better take... More

WHAT A DISSAPOINTMENT. First of all we didn't get the starter we ordered. When we told the waitress she said we either accept it or wait a long time for an alternative starter. After waiting for 30 minutes she came to us saying the order for our main courses got lost, so had to wait even longer and order again.... More

This is not a good Idea for dating your asian girlfriend that misses good Asian food, the chairs are very uncomfortable as well as the table being very small, the waitress was very rude as she tried to hurry us up and even took the menu from our hands when we didn't finish ordering, the food taste was very average,...

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
