WORST CHINESE IN NYC BECAUSE NOT OWNED OR COOKED BY CHINESE!

I would give them ZERO STARS if I could. This was the WORST Chinese restaurant I've ever been to. They should be shut down due to false advertisement (as in we are a "Chinese" restaurant) Their problem is that it is managed by India/Nepalese staff, and the cooks that are hired are NEPALESE not Chinese. At least my server was honest about that when I asked her at the end of the meal...I ate Chinese food in China as well as the US and nothing I ate here tasted remotely Chinese. I know curry immediately because India food is one of the few foods I actually don't like. My peanut sauce for the satay was no more than a weak watery curry with no taste of peanuts whatsoever. The Won Ton soup was just a yellow water again with no taste to any of the ingredients. My boyfriends Sechuan chicken was so bad he didn't even take more than one taste. Thankfully, they at least credited him back for that dish. STAY AWAY. They need to be shut down or forced to change their sign to being India/Nepalese food. TOURISTS BEWARE.

What a great place! – Nanking was a truly delightful experience. We the mocktails to start, we tried some delicious appetizers, and then we got entrees like pad thai and my boyfriend got a meat dish. We really enjoyed it. There is a very special ambiance in this place and it is really romantic. It's a dark atmosphere, the servers are really nice and friendly, and they only really talk to you when you need it. They have this amazing way of sensing whether their services were necessary, lol. We had a great time here, food was delicious, definitely coming back to this or another Nanking.

Definitely one of the better Thai/Indian places in the area – If you are in this neighborhood, this place is definitely worth a shot. They have some incredible drinks, to begin with, and the appetizers are very fresh and tasty, especially the salads (Duck salad was the best!). I really liked the vibe of this place, and the desserts we got, as well as the celebration that came with it (it was a birthday), made it an incredible night. Food was hot and spicy, but not too spicy. I loved it

dirty dirty restaurant! – i cannot believe that i actually saw a roach where i eat! i wanted to scream! i was with coworkers so i restrained myself plus we had already ordered. the cuisine is annoying....i have no idea whether i was having chinese or thai or indian made up food. the service was the worst! people who cannot communicate, rude responses, no water or knives.....the food tasted bland and to top it all off my bill was way too high. forget about going to this restaurant.....its a waste of your time and money and could be a health hazard

Left delighted – We had the duck and the chicken entrees, they were delicious and were covered in some exceptional sauce. The staff was really friendly and genuine, and they gave some great recommendations on the menu (they didn't just tell us to get the most expensive thing...).

My only complaint is that it took a while to get the check, but it was a busy night so I understand. Very romantic environment, very unusual food. Definitely would come back.

awfull service at very high price – This is not an Oriental restaurant! The food is neither Chinese, not Thai. Not to talk about the service... We had to take the knives from the nearby table because only one of the 4 persons at our table had knife. They did not bring us water and did not pay attention to whether we need something or not. At the end they added 18% tip without asking for. Even 10% it was way too much for the quality of food and service we got. Simply rip-off!

Very good food, I was impressed – I was very impressed with the high quality of the food here. The waiters were really nice to us, the food was brought quickly, and we really liked the mocktails! Duck was good and all the entrees were really good. Some of them were too spicy for me personally, but everyone else seemed to be okay with it. They have a really fine selection of desserts. Some of them are a pricey but definitely worth a try!

fantastic asian – We were here for a friends birthday--this is really an excellent place for that. The mocktail drinks were great and really got us tipsy, and they brought out the appetizers right away to make sure we weren't bored and waiting for our food. The entrees were delicious--i tried everything I was able to, and I was really into the lobster dishes. Really enjoyable experience overall.
