In the title compound, C18H13Cl2NO, the naphthalene ring system and the benzene ring form dihedral angles of 74.73 (13) and 62.53 (16)°, respectively, with the acetamide grouping [maximum deviation = 0.005 (3) Å]. The naphthalene ring system forms a dihedral angle of 75.14 (13)° with the benzene ring. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming C(4) chains propagating in [010]. The O atom also accepts two C—H⋯O inter­actions.
