Venue Info

Known For

Chinese

The first of numerous locations started here on the Zeedijk in 1981 with 16 seats and a Cantonese chef and foodie "friend" (or "kee") named Nam Chan. His restaurant grew its name in the neighborhood and beyond by sticking to the classics, eschewing the influences of the local Dutch cuisine. More importantly, though, the no-frills food is plentiful, cheap, and crazy delicious.
