Let the owner order for you, you won't go wrong.

This place IS amazing, NOT like any other Chinese food you've HAD!The plate that claims their fame is NANKING BEEF or chicken! Rocking!
Try the Pork Eggroll, Hand Rolled Steak Burrito and Shrimp Wrap with Peanut Sauce
Sweet Potatoes and Sesame Chicken. Rich. Flavorful. Fabulous. You can thank me later.
get the calamari
Greatest Chinese food you will ever have. Fantastic pot stickers (stay away if you're allergic to peanuts) Fun atmosphere but there's the ocassional long wait.
Try the Sesame chicken
Its aight here. If u do eat here get the calamari
Melt in your mouth calamari = AMAZING
Try the onion cakes! To die for!
wow.... best american chinese food! Order the baby pea shoots dish
Great place to eat if you are on business and by yourself. Try the nanking chicken with Sweet Potatoes, it's awesome.
Everything is miraculous...especially the garlic noodles. And the dumplings. And the calamari. Skip the shrimp packets.
Always ask for extra plum sauce with your Mushu meal, they cheap U out in take out!
Sesame chicken is delicious!!
Best garlic noodles in SF
Two different employees lied to me and said they did not take credit cards, which they do. Made me go down the block to get cash and pay a service charge. Then I saw them swiping cards. Never again.
A bad place with bad food and rude waiters. If you go there, you're a tourist.
The sesame chicken is not so bad. Order 1 for two persons it will be ok with steamed rice !
Really great place to take parents & our-of-town guests, the sauce on the shrimp packets is sooooooooo good.
Just ordered the shrimp stir fry rice... mixed w/some chili paste and soysauce= YUM-GASM!
Finally don't miss the sweet spicy stir fry egg plant: AMAZING!
I've never used the menu here. Just tell them what you like and how hungry you are and wonderful and tasty food will be produced post haste!
Really full and yummy place. There's usually a line in front of the place and that's why lots of bypassers stop. Good spices. Prices are pretty low. Very social place.
Excellent all around. The best dumplings.
Very touristy, but solid food. Like others have said, have the owners order for you, and you'll get some gems that you won't find on the menu.
when it's not busy, let the chef order for your party. you will not regret it.
Forego the menu and ask the owner to bring you whatever is fresh.
Get the eggplant!
This place is a tourist trap. The food used to be good 15years ago but now shafting tourists. Go to nearby R&G Lounge for excellent Chinese food. Tip: go downstairs and have baked crab
Bad service they never refilled my water, they forgot my salad the food was good but not worth it. Rude waiters bad plum wine.. I was really excited to come here but will never come again
Eat endless plates of pot stickers, house noodles, sea same chicken, and salt & pepper shrimp
Can't go wrong with family style. Let the owner order for you. Amazing ❤
Have been a customer for over 20 years, the best chinese food in SF
Be aware they don't honor the Amex special.
Get the sesame chicken, +1
Sesame Chicken is amazing.
Try the eggplant stirfry with the yummy sweet sauce and do NOT leave without the ordering the Nanking beef, the best plate in the house!
The wait here is ridicul
Sizzling rice soup, yum. As for extra crispy rice.
Just tell if you're checking out lunch or dinner b/c the stir fried egg plany is amazing!!
You thnk you know Chinese? NOT! You need to go Nanking style! Very different take on Mushu chicken.. YUM!!!
Avoid the tea. It's served in a pint glass that's way too hot to handle, and it's an unstrained floral concoction.
If you like the food here, you are a tourist. It is yuck!
Steamed dumplings, sesame chicken, calamari ... Yuuuuummmm!!!!
Had MSG poisoning here yesterday. 5.19.10.
If you can Chinese, ask for the Chinese menu. It's got different items, including noodle soup.
