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

After strolling up and down China town in search for a decent Chinese restaurant we stumbled upon New King. They were extremely packed and busy, but we (group of 7) decided to give it a go. The place also looks pretty clean. We were immediately seated, I think they have 3 levels of floors. The service was really good and... More

Living in Europe makes me really miss the Chinese food I could get in Australia. That place satisfied my Chinese cravings. Great food, large servings. The mixed dim sum plate for two is large, yummy and can be shared along three or four people. We over ordered so I would recommend getting 1 or 2 plates to share depending on... More

The place was packed. Had to wait in line. The place has couple of floors. Good service. Great dishes. One of the best hot and sour soups I had in a long time.

Our Amsterdam friend took us here, telling us his Chinese friend took her family there 2 days in a row, when they came to visit. Order the shrimp dumplings, he said. We did. Transported to wide-eyed, tongue making love to stomach heaven. We have no idea how the rest of the menu tastes. Um, and, don't care. Let me say... More

We ordered a mix of appetizer: too oily. Plus a small soups. Were enough for two persons. I advice to order directly the main course at least you can enjoy it without any appetizers. The service is fast so you don't have to worry if you are seriously starving. Point less is about the dessert: don't even ask for it,... 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.
