Asian, Best of San Francisco's Chinatown: If you want a truly unique Asian dining experience, head to House of Nanking. But be prepared to put yourself into the hands of head chef/owner Peter Fang, who since 1988 has down his best to get patrons to ignore the menu and allow him to determine what's the best meal of the day. The service is brusque but effective, with servers not shy about trying to get the tables turned-over for the next group waiting in the very long line. But the unorthodox approach rarely fails. The Famous NanKing Sesame Chicken is a must order - even if it earns you a glare from Fang.
Local Expert Tom Molanphy Says:
Best for Asian Because: The chef is inventive and actually prefers determining what each table will eat.
Recommended as Best of San Francisco's Chinatown Because: House of Nanking has been recognized nationally and worldwide as a "must-visit" Chinatown restaurant.
