In the Netherlands Chinese is generally fat, cheap and has a lot of sauce. After a long drive we ended up eating here because the restaurant was next to our hotel and it really surprised us! The food is good, fresh made and tasty. Service is polite and fast.. I can really recommend it!

This is my husbands and my favorite Chinese restaurant! The chicken is so tender and fresh and the crab Rangoon, you can actually taste the crab in it not just cream cheese. The staff is always friendly and quick no matter how busy it is.

As we were staying at the Days Inn, we asked at the front desk about restaurants within walking distance. They recommended the adjacent Shangri La, if we wanted Chinese food. We had noticed... More

Very friendly staff and great food. It was a Saturday night and the place was really hopping. Despite from being so busy, we were treated like we were the only customers there. Do recommend.

About four years ago we were invited to a Chinese Red a Egg party for a friend's Grandsons naming celebration and have been fans ever since. Clean restaurant, excellent service, and great Chinese food.
