Chinese Food in Amsterdam

I was sent this list of Chinese restaurants in Amsterdam as places to potentially try. However, it's kind of long and I have not been that impressed by Chinese food here so far, so I'm hesitant to just start at the top of this list without seeking some advice first!

> The "Lekker 2011" lists two restaurants with a Chinese kitchen in Amsterdam:
> - Chang I, Jan Willem Brouwersstraat 7. (Chinese, Fusion)
> - Dynasty, Reguliersdwarsstraat 30. (Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese)
> The "Gault Millou 2011" has the two restaurants above, and
> - A-Fusion Food & Drinks, Zeedijk 130hs. (Chinese, Japanese).
> "Simple Asian Fusion" dishes.
> - Geisha Restaurant & Lounge. Prins Hendrikkade 106-A. (Modern Oriental)
> - Oriental 128, Amstelveenseweg 128. (Classical Cantonese).
> - Sichuan Food, Reguliersdwarsstraat 35. (Chinese). Famous for its
> Peking Duck.
> Johannes van Dam recommends in his "Lekker Amsterdam":
> - Asian Kichen, Vijzelstraat 5a.
> - Chang I.
> - Nam Kee, Zeedijk 111. (Cantonese)
> - Nam Kee, Geldersekade 117. (Cantonese)
> - New King, Zeedijk 115-117.
> - Oriental City, Oudezijds Voorburgwal 177-179. (Cantonse)
> - Sea Palace Oosterdokkade 8.
> - Sichuan Food, Reguliersdwarsstraat 35. (Chinese).

I've been to Oriental City for dim sum and thought it was ... okay. I found the dumplings particularly disappointing -- the wrappers are thick and gummy and fall off the filling. It satisfies my need for dim sum every now and then, but if there's a better place, please let me know.
