Hadn't been to this restaurant for years and thought I would try it again. It is a very large typically furnished Chinese restaurant. The food was very mediocre and there are better Chinese restaurants nearby. The place was grubby and the toilets should be avoided. Service was cold and unwelcoming although it was busy. Disappointing.

Great looking restaurant. Big enough for the tour bus crowd. Was expensive compared to other
restaurants with similar food. If you like decor glitz and very large portions, this maybe for you.
1 dish easily serves 2. Quite a few locals... it was a Saturday night. Next time I will look elsewhere.

We lived 6 years in Asia, out of which 3 years in China. So we have very high expectations of chinese food and mainly dimsums. All we had here for lunch was dimsums and they were very good. Not the best we have ever eaten, but the best we have had so far in Europe. The prices also very reasonable around 4-5 EUR per portion, including 3-4 dumplings. For two of us with jasmin tea and egg tarts we paid 30 EUR. Absolutely worth the money! Service was pleasant and fast.

Tai Wu is one of the most popular restaurants in the small Chinatown of Rotterdam. It is known for its uncompromising Chinese food, mainly Asian clientele, hurried service and questionable hygiene. In short: this is a piece of 'zhong guo' in the Netherlands.

The rice sticks with beef was not bad, but a bit bland, whereas the overcooked Chinese vegetables were drenched in garlic (MSG) sauce. The three dim sums that we had were all very tasty, although the dumpling with shrimp was not much shrimp and too much dough.

40 Euro for this meal for three persons including tea was, of course, very reasonable.

Excellent Chinese food for not a lot of money. If you leave this place and are still hungry, well, I seriously can't see that happening, the portions are just that large.
Friendly staff, though their English isn't up to spec.
Lovely place, good location, and a really big menu.

Highly recommended.

Thank xixit
