What a wonderful experience, my visiting family and I had a delightful & memorable meal. Really original & wonderful choice of menu, deliciously executed, seamless service -with just the perfect amount of warmth. We haven't stopped talking about it all week. Thank you Royal Mandarin team, true timeless excellence.

We had the tasting menu and while relatively expensive the food was incredible. Very unusual combinations which were really enjoyable. Service was excellent - very attentive staff who genuinely wanted to ensure a memorable meal.

Mr. Man stole my heart by graciously smiling when I asked him for any vegan choices and produced, off be heart, a very interesting set of vegan options. He made sure I had plenty of cassave krupuk before I started relishing on the best Asian vegan food I ever tasted in the Netherlands. What can I say; simply the best.... More

I really don't like going to a Dutch Chinese restaurant. When I want to eat Chinese food I go to the Chinese restaurant at the Zeedijk in Amsterdam. Real Chinese food without the 'Dutch flavour' served in a place that looks like a bathroom. But I was recommended this restaurant because it's serves Chinese food haute cuisine style. We had...

Royal Mandarin is the best Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. Wonderful food, creative and tasteful and at Michelin star level. But also the service is at a very high level.

This is one of the best Cantonese restaurants in the Netherlands. The atmosphere is perfect and the menu never disappoints. We are always completely satisfied all round. Royal Mandarin is definitely a "must eat" restaurant again and again.
