Loads of food, tasty, good service. But if they continue to serve that amount of food they will have to start keeping pigs in the garden or they will lose money!

The Tipan plates in the restaurant are highly recommended! One pity was that people from the Wok-part of the restaurant ate their food in the restaurant-part. That caused a lot of people walking around.

Excellent service, very friendly and accommodating. We were taken here by a local, new friend. The staff prepared food that didn't seem typical of a rigid menu. The restaurant stayed open late until we had finished.

Ala cart is standard Dutch taste Chinese. The Wok/Tepanjaki corner is middle of the road. not good. not bad. For the region around Kampen its okay, but for the more advanst eater, there are much better restaurants in Kampen. Italian or even Thai.

This was one of the few options for tourists on Easter Sunday. Some of the buffet items were good, for example, there was a pretty good chicken entree, and good pork, but most of it was too heavy on the sauce. Nice people running the restaurant. Rice and noodles were hot and nicely steamed. Good value as they included one... More
