Description: 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.

Whenever I am in mid-town, I try to grab a meal here. It is one of the most reasonably priced restaurants that you will find in NYC. Service is fast and the portions are fairly large..and they are well-prepared for you to bring the extra food home...by adding utensils and spices or sauces in the bag. The place is centrally...

A Chinese restaurant in mid Manhattan, sounds great! WRONG! The service was awful. The manager and the waiters were rude to us and pushy. When we ordered drinks they arrived after our food, and we only had soda so it wasn't difficult. The food was so horrible that I sent it back, for the first time in my life. The... More

If the apocalypse was imminent, you wouldn't really care about serving your customers or taking good care of them or serving them anything remotely good since ... well, you're all going to die, right? Well, that's Nanking. I ordered a red thai curry. It was yellow. I pointed this out. They took it back to the kitchen, added some chili... More

I should have read the reviews before going in. Food was very bad. There are plenty of other better choices around.

we ordered the Ginger Chicken which arrived before our drinks order. The chicken was questionably cooked, and indeed questionably actually chicken. It tasted of soap, no hints of ginger at all and I wouldn't feed it to my dog. The service was also incredibly poor and not customer oriented. I re-iterate, for your safety, do not eat here!

I feel like I should have had a strobe light on my head to get attention of the staff. By the end of the meal, I had no idea who our actual server was since we had been serviced by about four people. A table across from us had to ASK for their check. THREE times. Go for the food... More

We decided to stop and try dinner here while wandering around Times Square. The food was simply fantastic. My daughter is vegan so they were able to help her pick out something to eat. However when she did get her food it was too spicy for her but they exchanged it for her without any issue. They also have a... More

After an exhaustive day walking the streets of Manhattan, we discovered this gem purely by accident. Limited by looking for a Halal restaurant, we decided we would chance it by ordering fish dishes, but at the entrance there was a welcoming sign stating Halal dishes available. Lovely location in Times Square, very reasonable prices plus huge portions. Two things lets... More

Great atmosphere here. This restaurant was recommended by my cousin and did not disappoint. We had the lamb curry and chicken satay and left completely satisfied.
