Impressive interior decor, and outstanding service. They specialize in crabs, and they are not inexpensive ($48 for a whole one). The garlic roasted crab was somewhat dry but good, the tamarind crab was excellent. The traditional salad was outstanding, as were the appetizers, mussels and salt and pepper calamari. Next time, we'll try other seafood than crabs, which is less... More

If you love crab, you must dine at Thanh Long. Although I like to explore new dishes when I dine out, I always order the roasted crab at Thanh Long. It's simply the best crab ever. Whatever seasonings they cook the crab with, it makes the food that much tastier. The garlic noodles and garlic bread are excellent as well.... More

Heard about this place from some online comments, and decided to try it out. Made a reservation for a Saturday night, and the restaurant called twice to confirm. Located in a somewhat residential neighborhood, I nevertheless had to drive around a few times to find a street parking space. The restaurant has no parking area, but does offer valet parking...

A group of 10 ate last night at Thanh Long. We had a appetizer of Calamari and a beef veggie dish. Then we had garlic crab and garlic noodles, fried rice and plain rice. Now this is the best garlic crab I have ever had. Lots of garlic and butter surrounds the huge dungeoness crab . We brought out own... More

A visit to Thanh Long provided the exclamation point on a pleasant Saturday excursion to a number of sites within nearby Golden Gate Park and a sunset drive along Ocean Beach. When I lived in a small fishing village in MA for several years, I always looked forward to the price drop in lobster that came after Labor Day, and... More

Omigoodness....don't waste your time ordering anything on the menu except the garlic pepper roasted crab and the garlic noodles. Both are to DIE for and should not be missed. This is crab at it's finest! That said, ALL the food is good...it's just the crab and noodles are incredible. The people around us were all ordering various items off the... More

Keep this place a secret. With it being crab season my daughter and I decided to give this place a shot. She lives only three blocks away. She had the Roasted Crab and I had the butterflied Prawns placed on a bed of garlic pasta. We also had their chef's rice. All I can say is Wow! Everything was excellent.... More

This little GEM out in the Sunset district, right of the N Judah line is AMAZING! The best CRAB in the world! Get the Garlic Noodles and you will have everything you need. The SHAKEN BEEF is a must have as well. You will leave feeling very satidfied and delighted that you went!
