Our B&B hostess recommended this place when we asked about a good Chinese restaurant. We couldn’t have been more impressed. The food was the best of that cuisine in my memory, the price was very reasonable (about E11 for a large meal), and the service very friendly. They also do carryout, but even though a very small place, we enjoyed our meal there. The menu was extensive, but we noticed the couple next to us had a great looking plate of food, so we asked them to order for us, and it was very good. You can’t go wrong here.

We ordered several dishes including their Wok beef with Szechuan sauce, Wonton Soup, Dim Sum and several other dishes and all were outstanding...a short walk from our rental houseboat and well worth the trip. Sat and had a beer while we waited for our take-away food.

Lucky House is your solid salt of the earth neighborhood Chinese restaurant. The food is good, with fresh ingredients and cooked in a kind and gentle manner. Located on a quiet neighborhood street, Lucky House, is normally packed with patrons and does quite a busy trade in deliveries. All goes to show that the food is good and consistent.

We live on a barge in Amsterdam and have found that some of the best eating places are tucked away in the back streets of areas like the Jordan etc. Convenient for where we live and a little out of the way from the main tourist spots.
The Lucky House Chinese restaurant in the Jordan area is just one of those places and a little gem.
A small unobtrusive restaurant serving in my opinion the best Chinese food in Amsterdam!!!....and that's just not my opinion, but the opinion of the local residents!
Ping, the charming and friendly lady owner together with her husband Jimmy have run the establishment for over thirty years and if you've been in more than once they will never forget your name, which is a rather warm friendly touch.
The food! A bit slow to be served but fresh and individually cooked by Jimmy, I'm my opinion the best Chinese cuisine you will ever experience.... and very reasonably priced.
Well worth a visit.

I live in the neighborhood and eat here once or twice a year. This is a sort of fusion of Chinese and Indonesian, Dutch style. There are some people who really like this style of Chinese, but it's not really to my taste nor do I think it's for most people.

Especially for vegetarians, there are only a few choices, and mostly they are just fried vegetables or tofu in bland brown sauce. The vegetables are not fresh, and they are usually overcooked.

Tip: All dishes come default with white rice. For an extra couple of euros you can get fried rice or noodles instead, which is a meal in itself. On request this can be vegetarian.

This probably is the best Chinese restaurant in the area, so if you have to have Chinese, this is the place to go. A better choice is the Indonesian place a few meters up the cross street, or the Chinese places near the Centraal Station.
