All in the family

Now it its 3rd generation, Hoi Tin is headed by Ethan Lo, his mother Susan and his uncle Alex. Together with their dedicated and talented staff they serve a wide range of dishes from Dim Sum to Wok dishes and roasted meats. All the while keeping their grandfather’s legacy alive. Grandfather Man did so much for the Chinese community and the elderly in the neighbourhood that he was bestowed a Knighthood of the Order of Orange-Nassau. Today, his family continues to deepen Dutch and Asian ties and understanding in the most delicious of ways.

The Far East is closer than you think!

Restaurant Hoi Tin is an authentic Cantonese restaurant, right in the heart of Amsterdam! Serving a wide range of dishes from Dim Sum to Wok dishes and roasted meats, Hoi Tin is run by Susan and her son Ethan, the 3rd generation of this landmark family restaurant. Ethan’s grandfather loved baking. So, when he decided to open a restaurant (after moving to The Netherlands from Hong Kong in 1965), it seemed natural to include a traditional Cantonese bakery. Since then, the ovens have never cooled! Hoi Tin’s baked goods not only feature prominently in their own restaurant, but in many other top Chinese restaurants as well.

VAT (Value Added Tradition)

While many things have changed over the years (for instance, the Chinese roof tiles on the outside were added later to give the building a more authentic Chinatown feel and connect it to the temple), what has never changed are Hoi Tin’s values of Authenticity, Excellence and Integrity. As a family institution with a long and respected history, Hoi Tin is always careful about the right balance between tradition and innovation, open to new ideas but never forgetting its rich heritage. Entering Hoi Tin is to be welcomed by a warmth, openness and humility that truly belongs to a simpler, more personal world.
