Had an absolute ball at the Sea Palace. Excellent food, staff and atmosphere. A special mention goes to Chi who looked after us all evening and made my sister-in-law's night with the birthday extras. Could not recommend this restaurant enough.

I went here with my sister and this was the best Chinese food I've ever had outside China. Great service, tasty dishes and friendly staff since we got inside. Great place I totally recommend it.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
