Mister Chen X Cha House

The menu is a fusion of Hong Kong’s ‘yam cha’ restaurants and Tokyo’s ‘Izakayas.’ In other words: all the goodies from Hong Kong to Tokyo. The dishes have a slightly more Western twist, with ingredients like wagyu in the gyoza. So delicious! They also offer home delivery.

Fulu Mandarijn

Small Sichuan dishes for sharing, made with fresh local ingredients and flavoured with the very best imported Sichuan spices. Also fun: cocktails made with local spirits and Asian elements. Head up the stairs and let the table fill up with dishes. We often start with dim sum and then order Peking duck and a Sichuan dish with crispy chicken bites.

Lucky House

Completely inspired by the fast, fresh, and healthy street food of Southeast Asia. In the wok choice menu, you choose your own ingredients, which are then quickly stir-fried at high heat to retain as many vitamins, colours, and flavours as possible. This is one of the places in Amsterdam where you can eat soup dumplings… and that’s precisely why we keep coming back here, making this tip an essential part of the list of the best Chinese restaurants in Amsterdam.
