Oriental City Amsterdam

The Cantonese restaurant Oriental City is situated in the heart of the city near the Red Light District and is known (and has been for years) for their Dim Sum lunch. Nothing fancy and definitely not hip but the delicious dishes here are all that counts.

What to order at Oriental City

Their menu offers a large selection traditional Cantonese and spicy Szechuan dishes. Think of  deliciously prepared crab, stir fry dishes and roasted Peking duck. Dim Sum fan? Oriental City is often mentioned as the best spot for Dim Sum in Amsterdam. The small dishes that are characteristic for Dim Sum are prepared by chefs from Hong Kong, using authentic ingredients. Some favorites are the steamed Shrimp Dumplings, Cheung Fan with minced beef and Siu Mai with pork.

On all days it’s crowded with Chinese people, which is a good sign in an Asian restaurant if you ask us. Saturdays are busiest, with the possibility that you’ll have to wait in line before being seated. Don’t hesitate to do so though, eating at Oriental City is definitely worth the few extra minutes of your time!
