    Best Chinese food in SF!! Let Chef Fang order for you - it's insanely good. If you're a menu orderer though, I recommend the peking buns, onion cake, short ribs, pea shoot salad, & white fish

    My favorite Chinese spot in SF! The must try's are the Nanking Sesame Chicken, Mongolian Beef Tower and the House Fried Rice. If you're in a large group, have the chef choose your meal.

    great vegetarian options - the bok choy starter and the housemade noodles are a great pair. and if you're staying at the W, you won't even have to cross the street to come here!

    White River Fish Soup is exceptional - a great comfort soup to start a meal. The short ribs has amazing melt in your mouth texture. It's nice to have Peter order for you. Just sit there & enjoy!

    It felt strange when the owner took out a menu from our hands, and told to forget about it, he is a chef. I guess it seemed charming to other people, but we knew exactly what we wanted. Food was great

    If it's your first time here and Peter asks if he should take care of your culinary quest, say yes. You won't be disappointed. And it's not too pricey either.

    Second visit, the chef recognized us. Said not to worry about ordering, he would take care of us. He sent out delicious buns, veggie dumplings, pumpkin soup and the most tender, flavorful beef dish <3

    Yes. Agree. Let the owner decide what u should eat. Amazing, creative dishes. Portobello mushrooms w tarragon & barley so unexpected. The short ribs, divine. I even liked the apples in the prawn dish!

    If you want a treat that isn't on the menu, ask your waiter for their apple & chicken plate. The apples are fried and salted, while the chicken has a light honey mustard to it. It's so delicious!

    Chef Peter Fang asked, "Do you know what you'll be having tonight?" I replied back with, "we'll have whatever you recommend!" His eye lit up and he took our menus away. The best 10-course dinner ever!

    Reviews just okay, but it was close to our hotel and we were tired. Great choice as it was delish, fresh and creative! Service was questionable at first but then they really pulled throug.HGo for it.

    Delicious. Couldn't say what my favorite dishes are as I've never seen a menu. Don't be afraid and let the staff order for you. It's definitely some of the best Chinese food I've had in SF.

    For large parties, request to be seated at the Tibetan room. Dignitaries usually accommodate this area. Enjoy the private, wood-lined, opulent feel. For the claustiphobic, don't use the elevator!

    Egg rolls are surprisingly good, dumpings were avg but sauce was tasty. Bf short ribs were recommene, it was okk. Good flavor but its pretty much like salt and pepper fried beef stew cubes.

    "An emphasis on seasonal, locally sourced ingredients make classic dishes (steamed soup dumplings, fried egg rolls, sesame chicken) shine."

    Quite a few dishes seem to be deep fried. Peter ordered short ribs and fish with tofu for us, which were decent choice and priced on the high side. I may return to try the dumplings.

    A little bit of a racket at dinner. "Order for you" turns into upgrading things you ask for to more expensive similar options without really giving you a choice. On the other hand, it's good food.

    If the chef comes out and asks if you've been there before, say no! He'll make several delicious courses that you'd likely never order on your own.

    House of Nanking の系列店。Fangはおしゃれできれいな。メニューは違うけど両方とも人気店。Fangはどれもパクチーが効いてる。写真シーフードポットのビーフン(たぶん)ちょい甘め。味は普通。おやじさんがいるときは、好みを伝えると適当に作ってくれてすごく美味しいらしい。全体的に味がマイルド、甘めなので好みをオーダーのときに伝えて次回またチャレンジしたい。
