Restaurant

When you arrive at the restaurant it looks like your every typical Chinese restaurant in the Netherlands. The restaurant has red, black and gold letters and inside you can see a mix of the East with dark coloured carpets, gold coloured accessioires and Chinese drawings. It really feels like your every day Chinese restaurant but it feels very warm and friendly.Each table feels very private with some kind of low screens seperating each table which gives you a lot of privacy. There are also tables along the windows with suitables space. Each of the tables are covered with clean white linen, cuttlery and napkins.
