I have visited this restaurant by chance and was positively surprised by food and service. The interior is not glamorous and probably needs refreshing but the taste of peking duck compensate it! I suggest you to visit this restaurant with your friends in order to eat good Chinese food at good price. The waiters are very polite what is more exception then rule in Amsterdam

I'm very surprised that the restaurant have gado-gado (Indonesian traditional food) menu. The taste of the sauce is as good as we have in Indonesia. The service from staff was good, she can speak a little bit Indonesian. The bad thing of this restaurant is the toilet size. The toilet is very small. There is not much space to walk.

Authentic Chinese. They specialize in Cantonese and Szejuan food, and there is quite a large variety of options on the menu. Some meals are great (chinese noodles with chicken, fried rice) and others are just average (beef with chili and garlic) since fatty beef is used. Portions are generally huge and the food is served extremely quickly. The service is friendly, you are always seated immediately without any wait, and the food arrives fast even when the place is full. Menus are in both Dutch and English.

Chinese visitors to Amsterdam often frequent this place, and they come by the busload since the restaurant is large and has ample seating. The restaurant is quiet and peaceful. The interiors are part chinese artifact and part old fashioned decor. It's comfortable and clean, but a bit outdated. Prices are very fair for the area.

It's a great, simple little neighborhood place. It's low key and fast, and good if you're just looking for an easy weeknight dinner out. Don't have too high expectations, and you'll think it's great. Maybe even better than I rated it. I'd have given this a 3.5 rating if it were an option. I just can't give it a 4 or 5 when I compare it to some of the higher end restaurants. However, for what you pay, you get great value here.
