The good: Cauliflower/Vegetable Manchurian appetizer I should of realized that there was a reason this place was empty while the nearby Stardust Diner had a line wrapped around the block even though a major storm had just begun. They initiated no service. Once we were seated with menus and water they left us entirely alone unless we waved someone over.... More

We ate at this restaurant for lunch while we waited for our Broadway show. Reading all these recents reviews made us a bit hesitant. We looked around the area and all food shops were priced much more. Even the nearby diner had the same price as Nanking. The service was not bad at all. Maybe we were just lucky. Seated... More

I really like the Nanking in New Hyde Park and was expecting a similar experience at this restaurant. However, I was completely wrong. The food was cold and gross. It literally looked like it had been reheated several times. The chili paneer dry wouldn't even cut into pieces. I'm not sure if this place has a trained bartender because the... More

The place was not very busy after our play finished. Whereas the "A" on the door lead us to think we were in for a nice meal--I have to say right off that the restrooms were horrible! Should have left then. The actual dining room was clean. Good selection on the menu. The service was extremely slow. Our waiter was... More

Thai eateries are something that , for us, are often hit or miss . Either great or not worth the trip. This one was not only great but gets kudos for something else: Hubby and I stumbled upon this restaurant after returning from a 3 hour bike ride . We had sweat heavily , were in biking apparel and no... More

I've just been back from a spur of the moment visit to Nanking and have been sick. It was vile. Service was rubbish, no please of thank you. We both ordered a light dish of garlic spicy vegetable noddles. They came out in pudding bowls, like you might have a left over portion at home in. I am 99% sure... More

The lunch time offer was the main draw of this restaurant and whilst in NY myself and my husband decided to give it a go. Sadly this was a mistake. The chicken and sweetcorn soup to start was extremely bland. We both opted for the red thai curry for our main, the curry was very brightly coloured and and like... More

Visited this restaurant on the spur of the moment and was surprised due to it's proximity to so many theatres to be virtually empty. Despite being only one of three couples/groups in the restaurant we had to resort to a big slow hand wave before we could get anyones attention. Another one to order... what's going on in this place?... More
