We had our last meal in this restaurant. It was lovely. We opted for the 10.50 Euro mixture of rice or noodles with a choice of BBQ pork, Chicken or Duck. This is extremely good value for money. Only drawback is that there is always a queue and very difficult when you are in the queue to know who is waiting for a table and who isn't. The customer service could be improved somewhat. The quality of food is very authentically Chinese.

We walked in here at 9.40, and we were informed that the kitchen closes at 10.00 so we had to order ASAP as the waiter said.
We get in, and literally 3 seconds later the waiter is asking and pushing us to order, after declining half the things we wanted cause it "would take too long" we then proceed to order what we think
is not even enough, what we did not know is the the portions are MUCH larger in Amsterdam than in London and we ended up ordering for 8 people more or less, even though we were just 4.
The waiter should have said at some point "hey guys, unless you are pregnant that's ENOUGH" as it happens on all proper restaurants.

The food is REALLY nice though to be fair.

Also in the end we wanted to spread the bill in 2 credit cards and we were not allowed, which was odd, and pissed me off quite a bit.

And lastly we were NOT allowed to get some water before we left cause the "bar was closed".

Food is great, portions are generous, service sucks.

We were wandering around the neighborhood and saw that the dining room of the New King looked relatively new, so we decided to give it a try. By-the-way it did have a Tripadvisor sticker on the front window, which is always a plus.

We were looking for some dim sum and they had a sampler plate for 2 for about 14 euros. That's what we ordered and it was perfect.

I must admit, while we were waiting for our order we noticed several other customers ordering various soups. And we were very tempted to do so as well. But I'm glad we didn't because the sampler plate was more than enough for the two of us.

Four Asian guys at the next table ordered duck plates and they said it was very good.

I would definitely go back.

Highly recomended for asian cousine lovers. Best in Amsterdam. Local asian people and other locals persons are regular Wide range of selection, big portions, low prices. Since 20.00 is not easy to get place.
