Great restaurant & the staff are very helpful. Get down early as we had to queue for a short period of time. The food portions are large so be careful what you order. For instance, my partner & I ordered 2 sides with our dishes. However, the manager was super helpful and advised us that one side dish would be plenty. For me, I love that. She didn’t force us to buy more dishes & that’s a great quality.

Full of flavour, we will be back on our next visit! You get what you pay for!

Very overpriced for what you get.

The service takes a REALLY long time and seems very disorganised.
Staff don't take ownership of you as a guest because you get 10 different waiters taking your order which creates lots of confusion and mixed messages. Plus, no one seems to know/care what's happening with your table.

There are other nicer restaurants in the area that are much cheaper.

Dear Cole,

First of all, we would like to thank your for your visit at our restaurant, and also your time on writing us this review!

We regret to hear that our speed of service with your table did not meet the standard of our restaurant. And additionally, you felt our staff did not take good care of your table because there are several of them serving you. However, we seek for your understanding that we are proving more opportunities for our new recruits to serve some tables, so they can also get some chances to learn on the floor.

We would like to thank you for sharing your opinions and helping us to improve our service. And please be informed that we have briefed your feedback in our team, and we are confident that we will have a more appropriate way in its organization.

Furthermore, our restaurant applies the traditional Chinese shared dining concept, so our food is with larger portion. Therefore, we hope that we can also have your understanding in this case!

Nevertheless, we still sincerely hope that you will be interested in visiting us and seeing our improvement. And please contact us directly via our email guestrelation@fulumandarijn.com, so we can take care of your reservation more appropriately!


Warm regards,
FuLu Mandarijn Amsterdam

Expensive, bad quality of food and drinks, nasty toilets - an overall bad experience.
Do NOT go here!
We tried lots of different stuff from the menu, but nothing was really nice.

Easy to find location wise (just off Dam Square).
A little bit of confusion with our booking but we were eventually seated and being served.
Food is extremely pricey and portion sizes are bigger. They could probably do with lowering dish prices and portion sizes at the same time.
Although the waiter/waitresses are good in that if they think we had ordered too many dishes, they told us upfront that the portion sizes per dish are very large.
Food was great and delicious.
