We went on a Sunday evening so the restaurant was very quiet, there was only one other table taken throughout our meal so the staff were very attentive. The prices are slightly higher then other restaurants in Newark... More

We have been to the New King Wah 3 times over the last month or so and have been pretty impressed. Food has been consistently tasty and well presented (we had one of the set menus last time which we all thoroughly enjoyed) and the service has been unfailingly polite, friendly and efficient. Price was reasonable too - not the... More
