Located at the Amsterdam Chinatown around Gelderse Kade en Zeedijk, this place offers an interesting menu in an authentic setting. Nice personnel. Lots of Chinese visitors too. Try it

Disgustingly rude service (if you can call it as that) & unhygienic. the bakery is as bad as the dishes. no customer service at all. rude to customers. bread was dropped on the bench & been put back on the shelf to next (un-noticed) customer. It seems they (especially all the middle aged chinesse women who work there) don't give... More

the dishes of dim Sum were tasting so lacking in flavour... such poor quality cooks doing the cooking.... these must be former ship sailors who stayed in the port and decided to cook Chinese food !

Ok, Chinatown in Amsterdam in the red light district as well. The oldest part of this city and beautiful. Of course things are changing but not in this place. Still the strange atmosphere, the mixture of Chinese people, tourists and locals. For you, if it is the first time, please try the Peking duck with bones and of course the... More

Had a need for fried rice after being in Turkey for 3 months. Fried rice was fine here, and it come out to the table very fast. Spring rolls were not good, they reminded me of supermarket frozen style.

We went to this restaurant for dim sum, after reading online that they make reasonably good, fresh dim sum. As well as several dim sum dishes, we also ordered a spicy pork dish with vegetables. The pork dish arrived first and was slimy and mostly tasteless, with a chemical tinge. It was not spicy at all. We asked the waiter... More

Horrible soggy food, overpriced, not great service. Just bad. The bean curd was extremely tasteless and seemed uncooked. Would not recommend!

With a big family we got a large table. For starters we had dim sum and then something more to eat too. The ambiance is great because we are happy we're together.

I always takeaway the delicious bakery which costs 1 euro. But I have decided to go inside and the service was great, they immediately give you a tea already together with the food, the dims sum are very good but not so delicious and the price is reasonable as well. If you want to eat dimsum in Amsterdam this is... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
