    Food was good but portions were really small and a bit pricy for such small size

    We landed here early on a busy Saturday evening. Extremely noisy. We ordered duck gyoza and fried sea-bream for starters. Tasteless, with sauces that seemed straight out of a can. So we finished our beers and left without ordering main courses. Service was friendly though. Maybe a hip restaurant for young people who have no idea of good Asian street food, but not for others. Disappoiting experience on our visit to Amsterdam.

    We arrived early, at 17:30, so the place wasn't very full yet. Online we couldn't reserve a normal table but a high one which wasn't really handy with a kid. Upon arrival however, and without us asking them anything, they said they had a normal table but we would need to leave in two hours as it was reserved - which was totally fine for us. Once at the table, the kid's seat was already placed and ready, which I thought was very attentive. The service, unlike what some people have written here, I thought was very good, friendly and quick. Even when it got a bit later and completely packed. The decoration is great and the vibe is fun. What we really came for was the food however and unfortunately (in general) all four adults thought it was average. Let's say it was OK, but nothing spectacular, nothing worth coming back for. We ordered the duck gyoza (which was my favourite dish of all), the pork & shrimp dim sum, the chicken curry, fried rice, edamame, jasmin rice, mussels, meatballs, chicken soup (Tom Kha Kai), veggie spring rolls, and two buns - with duck (and a good one) and with crispy chicken. Although the food was OK, somehow it misses that quality, that extra touch that makes it really special and makes you crave more, hence why I don't think we will be going back. We paid 80 euros for four adults. But the place is fun, service was friendly - with a big group of friends I can imagine it's perfectly fine.

    We went on a weekday afternoon so it was kinda nice and quiet. Authentic asian food. portion is little so it's good to order a few different things to share. friendly staff. nice decorations that hits in the trend.

    I was curious about happyhappyjoyjoy since it is one of the new "in" places of Amsterdam West and there is a hype around it so I decided to check it for myself. The interior is quite nice, it is a nice atmosphere for a get together or a romantic dinner. Service is friendly and fast. But unfortunately the most important thing, the food is just average. I went there with my girlfriend and we tried to try as many dishes as possible. Lemon squid was nothing special, Tijen kauw was not good, Tom Kha Kai was ok but you can almost not go wrong with Tom Kha Kai, it is almost fail proof I think. Vegetable curry was ok but you can easily prepare it at home also, Gajnamul was below average. I think only items standing out were the baos and the hophop huis beer. I tried the pork belly and crispy chicken baos and really liked them. I can recommend this place for a quick baos and a refreshing happyhappyjoyjoy beer but other than that I can not say that it is a good representation of Asian Street Food.

    The food and the location is awesome. The only downside was that we continuously had to wait for the waitstaff. Our drinks wouldn't arrive at the same time and we had to wait a long time for our table that was already free because our waiter got distracted

    I went with a friend and we ordered a salad, 2x DimSum and duck. The food was good, but overpriced. We still felt hungry when we left. Decor is unique.

    Wow this place had a high marketing campagne before it started.. a lot of fuzz that it would be the new place to be for authentic Asian street food. We visited the restaurant the first week before it officially open-end and tried almost everything on the menu. We left our comments and recommendations in a booklet they provided to get feedback. The comments were regarding; the staff ( that they really needed to train them well, the portion sizes versus the prices etc) Since that first week we have been back twice, once for Pho ; which seems the most authentic on the menu and fairly priced. And once for a dim sum quick snack. The food is what it is.. not really as exiting as they promised to be but great that they open until late. If only they could make it as affordable as the street food in Asia we would have a winner!
