Welcome to the nanking restaurant to experience the hospitality of this ancient city of China ! Nanking is a city about equal distance from Canton and Peking.In 1842, after nanking was captured by the British, Sir Henry pottinger signed the nanking treaty. What followed thereafter was an era where various eating places opened up for visitors to enjoy the hospitality of this region. The food was modified to suit the palette of the visitors to entice them to come back to these eating places. This fusion cuisine became very popular. It is our humble endeavor at nanking Restaurant to bring you the same historical fusion taste, and hospitality from ancient China. We extend a very warm welcome to you and will make every effort to make your visit enjoyable and memorable.

Stumbled upon this by chance, directly behind our hotel. Offered fixed price three courses for $15, and beer for $2. Food was very tasty, apart from ice cream which had no flavour, generous portions. Service was good, friendly. Would use again.

Loved the food. Wife and I tried 2 types of lobster (with black bean sauce and spicy szechuan) and they were fantastic. The experience would have been 5-star if the staff had been just a tad more friendly. Overall great experience, I recommend them without hesitation.

The Hot and Sour Soup was probably the best U have ever had...it had a great kick to it. I also enjoyed the Vegetable Pad Thai. My waitress did a good job too. I am so glad I checked this place out after seeing Wolf Hall next door at the Winter Garden Theatre.

Went to Nanking for a pre-show lunch. Service was very slow and food was so bland. Had chicken and broccoli, which is pretty standard. It was not good. The staff is unorganized and not very knowledgeable about the menu. Way better places for decent Chinese food in the area. I would not recommend or go back.

Someone said that you only get one chance to make a first impression and in the case of Nanking it was not such a good one. Someone else said location location location, and they have sure got that for anyone interested in finding some Asian food in the Theater District on Broadway. Firstly, we could not understand why loud and... More

This place is the best place to eat Chinese food, very clean and so tasty. The portions are not big though and the price is not cheap.

We stopped in for dinner and were not disappointed with the food. Portions were just right - not overwhelming. Food was very tasty. The atmosphere was a little strange with some Spanish rap playing but I guess it's fusion, right? The wait staff fulfilled their requirements. If you like attentive servers, this is not a place for you. They did... More

I don't usually like fusion places; however, the food was tasty, the service was great, and they kept giving us free food. Highly recommended.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
