Second time at Mr.Tongs and still fabulous value. The special €5 menu may be limited but it offers a large main course with other extras at nominal cost. The service was quick, without fuss and with excellent customer care. 100m from The Bulldog and adjacent tram stop. Ideal for a low budget weekend.

All the food was absolutely gorgeous and we noticed that it was not... More

We had both lunch and dinner on two different occasions. The menu is pretty simple and the food was great for the price and the wait was not too long (about 10-15mins) Service was ok. Only one waitress but she was pretty efficient.

My husband & I were first attracted here by the offer advertised outside which consisted of a choice of meat, veg or prawns, with a choice of sauce & either fried rice, white rice or noodles for €5, however on entering we decided on something different, for a starter I had 6 small curry samosas & my husband had 2...

Had chicken satai and steamed dumplings for appetizer. Satai tasted like gravy and the dumplings were raw. We both had wok for main. They switched up the orders, so we both got wrong. Neither tasted very authentic Chinese. Small amounts of beef and chicken. Will not come back

Me and my girlfriend were in this restaurant for a grand total of about, when our drinks finally arrived, we walked out. Firstly we chose to walk in since it looked relatively quiet, there were maybe 3-4 other tables and the food looked reasonable from what I could see. However on entering the establishment (at 1500), it was a grubby... More

We love coming here for dinner in Amsterdam - purely for the €5 dishes. You can get two drinks, spring rolls and two cheap dishes and not pay anymore than €20 - €25 euros - extremely cheap for Amsterdam. Delicious and tasty every time!

My boyfriend and I were looking for somewhere to eat when we came across Mr Tongs. We were greeted by a lovely young girl who spoke very good English. She served us the whole evening and she was very friendly. The food was delicious, we even visited for a 2nd time during our 4 day stay in Amsterdam! Great value... More

We (6x guys/friends) stumbled across this little restaurant. They were advertising an attractive lunch offer and we noticed there were many diners enjoying themselves. We were seated quickly by a very friendly English speaking young Chinese lady and were given menus whilst they brought us a drink. Fab food and great value for money in my opinion, I thoroughly recommend... More
