New King, great service, clean, awesome food. It's a busy place, so maybe it's smart to make a reservation. When you visit Amsterdam this is the place to have a nice asian diner :)

Very nice Chinese restaurant with excellent staff and menu. Many choices and dishes in the menu where you can even order Chinese beer. The place was very clean and well decorated to travel you fictitiously in Asia.

Another great meal at New King, where we used to go years ago whilst living in Amsterdam. Sure, the menu prices have gone up in that time, but the food remains just as excellent. Service and food delivery was very prompt, and the staff went out of their way to find a space for the buggy and bring a highchair.... More

Over the years Amsterdam has been the favourite destination for my family. New King restaurant is the best place to go to have big bowls of chinese soup with meat balls, grilled duck meat etc. The whole menu is good. You have not visited Amsterdam if you have not eaten at New King which is located in Zeedijk, the redlight... More

Spotted this restaurant in the afternoon while out for a walk. Looked busy, which is usually a good enough indicator for us. Did not disappoint. Lovely surroundings, not your usual Chinese decor. Beautiful food. Big portions. €60 for two starters , two mains & a couple of beers. Well worth it. Very enjoyable.

We tried the noodle soups in different varieties - all very good: with Chinese noodles, vegetables and two kinds of meat. I think the price of 13€ is ok considering that there plenty of meat (vegetarian version is also possible) and you sitting right in the middle of downtown Amsterdam. The staff was busy and friendly. Good seating in the... More

Love this place, great choices, reasonable price and generous portion. I had the "babi panggang" which is Chinese roasted pork and it was mouth watering. I also ordered stir fried eggplant and it was delicious. I'll definitely come back if I visit Amsterdam.

The place was recommended to us, otherwise we would not have found it. It doesn't look especially attracting from the outside. The restaurant itself is not stylish but rather simple when it comes to inner decoration. But the staff is really friendly. And the food is first class at correct prices. Really recommendable!

Food in new king is really good. Affordable prices ... I would defiantly recomend Pekin duck ... so tasty!... Most of the time is crowded so it's possible that u have to wait for some minutes for a table.

We were recommended to visit this restaurant in case we were into nice Chinese food. Well the food was really good especially the shrimp dumplings soup. The service was quite fast too. It's a commercial restaurant and they try to fit as many clients as possible. So small tables, very near to each other that makes it quite uncomfortable and... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
