Full Moon Garden is truly a hidden gem located close to Amsterdam’s famous Leidseplein square. Quietly tucked away from the main street of Leidsestraat, a long staircase takes you upstairs to reveal a bustling restaurant with an open kitchen featuring steaming baskets of dim sum.
Fully renovated in March 2019, the interior is modern with Asian elements giving it a chic and modern flair. Our restaurant is fully air conditioned with the capacity to seat over 150 persons, perfect for large gatherings and special celebrations.
Borrowing from Cantonese 點心
Literally means “to touch the heart gently;
to refresh the heart.”
“Yum cha” in Cantonese means to drink tea. This commonly refers to eating “dim sum” which is an integral part of Cantonese eating culture. Dim sum are tiny bite-sized portions of food that are either fried or steamed in small baskets. At Full Moon Garden, all our dim sum is made in-house and we have over 80 types of dimsum on our menu for you to choose from.
