The food was ready exactly on time. The taste was perfect. The Mushu Pork was not what I was used to but it was good. Ordering on the web site did not work but I was able to see the menu and have the order figured out when I called them.

Recently met a friend at Nan King for lunch. First time for me to go there. I was impressed by its clean smell. I thought the food was quite good and very inexpensive. I particularly liked the hot and sour soup and egg roll. Went vegan with the fried tofu and vegetables and it was good to very good. Good... More

I've gone to Nanking many times over last few years, and I remember it being in same location even 20 years ago . So it does have a lot of local people who order take-out, and "eat in" . The manager and wait staff (usually just 2 people), are friendly and service is very good , when I've eaten here.... More

Excellent Kung Pao Chicken, K P Mixed Vegetables, Pork w/Snow Peas, Beef Broccoli, and other traditional entrees served with tasty egg roll and choice of soup (won ton... More

Food was the best chinese I have had in a long time! We are here on vacation and its just down from where we are staying. Service wasn't amazing, they are under staffed, but the food by far makes up for it!

I've been going to Nan King for several years now and I've never been disappointed. When I go to Chinese restaurants in other cities I'm always disappointed because they never match up to Nan King. I took my family here last year and everyone got something different and everyone loved what they got. The food here is so inexpensive, don't... More

I'm not exactly sure how long Nan King has been in business, but I know it has been decades and we *always* get fresh and great tasting food, which is why we return decade after decade. The prices have stayed low as well which is a big bonus, but we would return again and again even is they inched up... More

I've been coming here for 12 years the family run business does not miss a beat . I have chicken and broccoli with hot and spicy sauce I never have to order I just say I'll have the same.! Try the hot and spicy sauce on anything it's the best and I've tried plenty around the world.

Best chinese food for the money that I've had in North Austin. I gave it a 4 because service can be slightly lacking at times.
