Nothing about this dining experience was in any way pleasant. Service was horrific, they took ages to take a drink order, food order or clean away the empty plates. I, personally, couldn't eat the food and actually had to spit a mouthful into my napkin. My husband managed to eat some but was equally unimpressed. We then waited for ages... More

Perhaps it was the jet lag but we were not impressed, food was nothing remarkable, service was adequate. Not a high point but we did get nourishment.

Awful Chinese. It started ok. Ribs and Dim sum were ok. Main courses were full of salt....no flavour in any of the dishes we ordered. Just salt. Prawn dishes 21€ are totally over priced for what you get. There are heaps of other restaurants in this area...that are far nicer and better value.

The service is very slow to bring the food, and afterwards the quality is not so good. The pork meat was very hard, the fried things are very oily and desert is very basic. Nothing special. Not recommendable.

Many times we come here for dinner, and often we order their delivery service, most of the times its good. Unfortunately, it is nowadays less tasty. The sauces are full with the cornstarch clumps. Too salty with a few dishes. Its not bad, just compared with how it was before. They can do better.

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
