In this section I am looking at 48 restaurants in and around Amsterdam's red light district. There's an interactive map, photos of each plus links to the websites where they exist. In many cases I have also added photos of the menus which other sites rarely include.
Amsterdam's red light district is surrounded by a huge number of restaurants. Lange Niezel on the north side has a wide variety including the Indian Kamasutra
and the Tibetan Tibet
. Zeedijk to the east is Amsterdam's China town so you'll find several restaurants with similar sounding names like Nam Kee
, Wing Kee
and Kam Kee
in amongst the Thai Jasmine
, Chao Phraya
as well as the odd Argentinian like La Vida
To the south on Damstraat there's quite a few Argentinian steakhouses like Dam Steakhouse
and La Stego.
There's also a few pizza joints such Pizzeria Doria
and New York Pizza
plus the two large Chinese restaurants Oriental City
and Golden Chopsticks
Warmoesstraat marks the western boundary and here you'll find many snackbars, coffeeshops
plus a few restaurants like the upmarket Reflet
and huge Heffer
. Surprisingly there are very few restaurants in the centre of Amsterdam's red light district. It's mostly snack bars and fast food joints. There is however the brand new and very posh Anna
(an early result of Project 1012
) which backs onto Oudekerksplein and the Korean Yokiyo
on Oudezijds Voorburgwal.
