Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came here with four couples and shared dishes. The spring rolls were very crisp and tasty. Dishes shared were Imperial Chicken, crispy pork and fried rice, sweet and sour chicken. Service is fast, the restaurant is very crowded and we waited about 20 minutes...for a table. Highly recommend!More

Fantastic, authentic Chinese in the heart of Amsterdam’s China Town. The service is highly efficient and the staff is extremely friendly. The atmosphere is not one of fine dining or luxury, but the food and the whole experience is exceptionally good. We tried the tofu...with eggplant hotpot, beef with sesame, dim sum, sea bass fish in the wok. Every plate was a true delight. If you are on the lookout for a real Chinese experience in Amsterdam this is the place to go.More

I just found this place by wandering China town and liked the look of the menu. I went in and there was a small queue of people waiting for a table.A staff member took names and gave us an estimated waiting time if we wanted...to come back. I did, and I am very happy I did. Notable when I went to my table was how many Chinese people were eating there, always a good sign. I was travelling solo and was added to a table with four chines people and my mouth was watering at the food they were already tucking into it. I would say the cost of the meals were slightly above average compared to other meals I had during my stay. However, the portion sizes were extremely generous and good value for money. In terms of quality though the meal was memorable and one of the best Chinese meals I have had. All the staff I dealt with were excellent and very attentive even though the place was packed to the rafters with a never ending cue of potential new customers. There was no pressure to finish your meal quickly and having no been there if i go back to Amsterdam I will happiy stand waiting in line to get in again.More

The two of us shared a bowl of Sui Kau soup and an order of Lamb Chops In Light Soy Sauce With Garlic. The total with a Tsing Tao beer was 48 euros. The Sui kau soup came with 4 big pieces of sui kau....Fresh shrimp, sweet broth. It was delicious! The Lamb Chops In Light Soy Sauce With Garlic came with a generous bowl of rice. The 5 pieces of lamb chops were wrapped in aluminum foil and sat in wine which our waitress lighted to thicken the sauce. The result was caramelized lamb chops which had been perfectly marinated. It was the best lamb chop from a Chinese restaurant we ever had. It was an excellent dinner, very satisfying and also very cheap in Amsterdam!More

I had a dinner here with my bf today. Everything went well until we PAID and left. Immediately the staff (she is Chinese with short hair) asked me if I already PAID? I was shocked because SHE was the one who took the CASH from...me when i PAID (stupid me even gave them tips). She took me 20mins just to explain to her what method i paid, how i paid, who i paid with. WTF? So humiliating bcs so many ppl was looking at me at the time, like I’m cheap. I advised them to go check their camera, they said they dont have one. WOW! (Isn’t it so taxable business? 😎 - if u know what i mean). After a while a guy came and checked with them and said sorry to me saying everything was fine then, but the one who shud say sorry was THE WOMAN- but she ran away. Just to say, dont know how good the food is but the attitude of the staff today is making they lose tone of customers since I’m gonna spread it all out. MAKE SURE NEXT TIME YOU PAID AND KEEP THE RECEIPTS WITH YOU!More

I am not one to write a negative review lightly but I feel our experience here was not pleasant. We had not booked but we were kind of rudely allocated a table in a dimly lit dreary area which was quite depressing. The waitress we...had was quite pleasant but where we were sat we could see all the drinks prep, cleaning area which was quite off putting. We were served drinks but had quite a while to wait for the food so we had almost finished our drink by the time the food arrived. We didn't order another as it was really expensive just for half a lager. The food then arrived - the fried rice was quite nice and the portions were quite big (should be for the price!) but have to say the main courses were awful. The chicken was in huge chunks and wasn't just pure chicken. It was very rubbery. The curry was very watery and not very tasty at all. Sorry but would not recommend this restaurantMore
