Drunken Dungenese Crab, The Best Ever!

The restaurant is a ways in from 19th, (on corner of Judah and 46th Street), toward the Pacific, however, the restaurant's menu is a winner! Never disappoints my taste buds!

I thought about the huge Dungeness crabs on the west coast and was told this place was outstanding for them and I was very intrigued on trying this place. We do not have these on the east coast and I love crab any type - WELL- Maybe once is was, but wow so bad now. For the first few moments... More

This is definitely one of the best places for crab! We heard so much about Thanh Long that we just had to make the trip from Union Square to Judah Street (which took us an hour by metro and foot). No regrets at all! Like most people, we ordered the roasted crab and garlic noodle. They were awesome!!!

So I drove out here to spend a day at the beach and was told to come by here from someone local. Not going to lie it kinda looked like a whole in the wall at the time but the food was so good. I got the crab with the garlic sauce and the garlic noodles. OMG amazing. I have... More

we ended there by accident and ended being the best food experience during our whole 3 week trip. Citrix fish, and of course the garlic nooddles from out of this world. If you are in the Golden Gate area try to make it to this cozy restaurant!

This is not my first time at Thanh Long, not even my first 5 times at Thanh Long and I am not a local. But I figured I should pay them back for my lovely meals with a review. A friend had recommended Thanh Long years ago and if you're not a local it's probably the only way you'll know... More

This is a great Vietnamese restaurant that seems to be famous for two things - the roasted Dungeness crabs and the garlic noodles they serve. We had both and though the noodles were more like spaghetti and a little cold, the crab was amazing. I surprised myself by how adept I soon became with the crab-crackers and using a piece... More

We went here for our anniversary dinner. The wait staff was some of the best I have ever experienced. The food was very good although a bit pricey (although standard for San Francisco). Would recommend this establishment for a special meal.

Honestly, come here on special occasion. It is expensive but really good. The crab is garlicy, buttery and perfect seasoned with black pepper. Garlic noodle is a must. Mussel is average, imo. Asparagus soup is okay. Vietnam salad, unless you like shreded green cabbage, this is not for you. Remember to drink warm tea after eating oily food. Great service,... More
