Stopped off here to have a dim sum lunch. The service was pretty average. Nice view of the streets from where we sat. The menu is quite limited and did find some of their food a bit on the salty side. We ordered 8 dishes and the bill came up to approx 46euros, back in London it would've cost me about £30 (35 euros), bit expensive and the food could've been better.

Had lunch here while in Amsterdam for business. The restaurant is close to Dam Square. I had the chicken chow mein, which was wasn't the best I've ever had, but it wasn't bad either. It's an ok place to stop for a quick bite.

I was staying at a hotel right down the block. It was ok food. The server was definitely not friendly. But it was cheap an fast.

On a stone-throw distance from the Dam Square is this chinese restaurant. On the groundfloor (different entrance) is the popular sister restaurant, Golden Chopsticks with relatively simple but delicicious dishes.
In Oriental City we have had Dim Sum a couple of times with friends. The best view is at one of the window side tables. The dim sum is very nice. In the weekends beware of long waiting lines. Reservations are not taken. Best time to go is between 11.00 and 12.00.

This was a busy (expect to have to wait up to 30-60 mins at peak times), fairly good Chinese restaurant with a traditional atmosphere and menu. They had a good selection of dim sum and seafood dishes (the oysters with ginger and spring onion were particularly good).

Service was on the good side of expectations. The food was tasty, with large portions. And it was good value.
