Most overrated chinese restaurant in SF. With so many excellent chinese restaurants in SF, why would you go here? Greasy spoon chinese is NOT real chinese food (go to Hong Kong of have a homecooked chinese meal and you’ll understand). If you still want to try it, maybe the undercooked chicken will change your mind.

What a wonderful experience! Per a friend’s suggestion we handed the menus back and asked Mr. Fang to take care of us. He did so and then some (you can tell he’s also getting paid from the Hermes belt he sports).

The egg rolls and duck pancakes were tremendous, just the slightest bit oily as you’d expect your chinese food. The chicken salad was tremendous and then the calamari came. The batter was tempura-light and the sauce had the perfect balance of acid and oil.

They actually mistakenly assumed that we were done and we coaxed them into bringing out two more courses: a crispy crackling beef that had a great balance of flavor and texture but was overwhelmed by an onions, and a shrimp and vegetable dish that had some of the most succulent zucchini I have ever tasted.

Total tab: $66 for two people (pre-tip). Ridiculously cheap.

I plan to visit this restaurant every time I visit San Francisco.

delicious food served in a no-nonsense way.

i had the salt and pepper tofu with mushrooms, which was delicious and filling. my friend got sesame chicken with sweet potatoes (whatever you do — GET THE SWEET POTATOES). we also got the egg rolls on a recommendation from our server, and they were amazing.

friendly service, good food, what more can you ask for?

mister nanking and family are running around in this busy chinese food joint, but never to busy to stop by and chit-chat w/you. if it’s your first time and don’t know what to order, don’t worry, mr. nanking himself will come and not only recommend dishes off the menu, but order them for you!

huge portions, be prepared to share!

We have traveled to SF just to eat here...

Strongly recommend - tell chef what you like, he will bring a flavorful array of delicious foods!The tea is the best we have ever had - you can buy it for $1.95 a piece. My husband is an airline pilot based out of oakland, I sometimes fly…
