The quality of food, the quantity and what we paid for it was excellent. Substantial meals from as little as 12.80 euros, way better than the tourist traps on the different squares. Service was good and we will recommend to all looking for a good...More

Visited here with some friends having read the reviews posted. It was a bit out of our way from our location in the centre so we got a taxi there. Entire meal was ok but very average. Restaurant seemed a bit tired/run down and certainly...More

Very plain, ordinary Chinese. We actually came here for the "Indonesian" rice table but be warned it's nothing like what you get in the Netherlands, rather a mix of Thai and Chinese with a bit of sate thrown in to make it Indonesian.

The occupation rate in this restaurant always seems to be on the low side when I stop by (either to takeout or eat there). It's a shame though, cause they offer pretty good chinese food, and they're always friendly.
