I recommend you walk the whole minute or so of the street and perhaps visit the temple. However, DO NOT EAT there. It is way too expensive and not good at all. We live in Beijing and my wife was missing her food. She saw...More

The street has a small handful of Oriental restaurants, less than 20. You can walk the section in about 2 minutes. Very disappointing.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

To my understanding, a lot of restaurants would still open at night until 10:30-11:00pm. However, I don't think the restaurants would so early on Sunday morning.
