The oyster sauce beef rice was simply sublime, was really impressed that such a humble, non-descript eatery could produce such tasty fare without burning a hole in your pocket. The owners are a loving couple running a simple family business. If u want a no frills quick fix to your growling tummy, Yu Family Kitchen is the place to go!

One problem with Amsterdam must be there is too much choice, so where do you go? We fancied a Chinese meal, saw the Wu Family Kitchen on Tripadvisor so gave it a go. If you want a full restaurant, it's not that, it looks like a takeaway with some seating inside and out. We visited twice, ate inside and out. Clinically clean, the place, the kitchen, the tables & chairs and Mr. & Mrs. Wu! Uncomplicated menu with warning chillies for hotness, cooked to perfection and served in a few minutes. We couldn't fault it for anything. Enjoyed each visit and puzzled over others on the street going to a burger bar or a franchised, pseudo Chinese place across the way. It's on a side street off a shopping street that runs parallel to the West side of Damrak

We arrived at dinner time . The owner was nice and friendly . They were from China but have since been running this kitchen for over ten years . The food were big portion and cooked differently than what we used to at home. Price is the winner here.

The menu is pretty simple and it's in ENGLISH! They have the same 5 dishes just with different proteins (veggie, chicken, beef, shrimp). The prices range from 6.5 euro to 8 euro. It is a large portion and the price includes white rice and veggies. (I opted to upgrade to egg fried rice for 0.50 euro and it was a great decision!)

If you need a decent Chinese take away style meal at a great price, then this is the place to go. To be in the centre of town and have a decent meal cooked to order for €6:50 is excellent. Menu is simple, the people who run it lovely and the food tasty. Do not be put off by the very simple layout. It is good food and it fills you up. If you are a food snob, who wants the full atmosphere and silver service, rush off and find one of the many places that will take your money at 3 times the price. We all loved the food and left full and ready for the next 3 hours of shops and museums.
