I must say this is a hidden treasure. Went there with a friend after a recommendation from the concierge at the Hotel. I must say the best chinese food in town... Trust me I have eaten at a lot of chinese places in town but this place took the crown... Try the basic sweet corn chicken soup and the last... More

After a great day in Amsterdam and a massage with a good friend we decided to grab a bite. Nam Kee comes recommended by several people so we headed to the Nieuwemarkt. We had to wait in line for about 15 minutes but that was OK. We got our table and I felt I was eating in the bathroom the... More

No doubt the best Chinese restaurant in Amsterdam. We have been here multiple times and it never disappoints. My favourite is the beef with Chinese broccoli.

Where locals frequent, it must be good and this place comes very strongly recommended for traditional Chinese cuisine. The crowd is testimony of its favourite status for no nonsense noodles and rice dishes and Oh, don't forget the roast meats.

Keep away! Terrible Chinese food, it was disgusting and the pork wasn't cooked. My girlfriend was very ill afterwards and I am back now lying on my sofa unable to move. I feel terrible. It has to be the worse I've had in my life and they were rude about us as well. Avoid!

We are from San Francisco, so we have pretty good quality Chinese food here. After being in Europe for 10 days, we were craving for rice and was happy to stumble upon Nam Kee. We were not expecting much. But upon entering the restaurant, all the servers and cook speak Cantonese, it's a good assurance already. We ordered a BBQ... More

We had the yong chow fried rice, prawn dumpling soup and roast duck. The sambal chilli was good, and the yong chow fried rice was tasty!

I had not checked TA's reviews before heading to this restaurant. I'd have avoided this place if I read recend terrible reviews. Anyway, i ordered a Yang Chow fried rice and it taste good, although the fried rice wasn't authentic in my opinion. Priced at $13.50 thought it was a bit expansive but when dish was served, i find it... 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.
