Come For The Food

Mom and pop place. Come for the food. Onion cakes, Honey Chili chicken especially good. All fresh ingredients. Super good, very reasonable ($). If your near Chinatown come by, you won't be sorry.

I dream about his Onion Cakes

I still dream about Chef Jia's onion cakes and peanut sauce! I try to replicate it - but it's impossible. I also love that his stir fry has sweet potatoes in it. I am a vegetarian and found a large amount of menu items I could choose from. I loved his rolling lettuce vegetables and still think that there is no comparison to Nanking. I always walked right in - an ate - no wait! I also remember seeing him and his wife ... view more

I just don't get it! We ate there last night (6 of us) and ordered a bunch of different things and were HUGELY disappointed! Almost everything we got was prepared in the same way: covered in batter, deep fried and then covered in a gloopy sauce. Even the fish fillet which I was hoping would resemble a fillet was like this. The only dishes where I could tell what kind of meat I was eating was the mushu chicken and tha... view more

Delicious Cheap Eat

This place is great. I ate like a queen for 5 bucks. I had the spicy honey chicken. It was out of this world.It also came with soup and rice. Highly recommended. No line and fresh, sizzling hot food!\r

This is the place for delicious cheap eats

I was walking around chinatown with a friend and saw the long line at House of Naking and no people next door. There were several newspaper/magazine articles about the place though. I ask a man coming out if the place was good and he said best honey chili chicken in town. In fact, that is what appealed to me when looking at the menu posted outside. Anyway, it was really delicious and a great value. The honey chili ch... view more

locals favorite

every review below this one has hit the nail on the head--chef jia's is excellent! cheap, fresh, and delicious! vegetarian rice plates are only $4.80, and the portions are gigantic. it amazes me this place isn't always packed, but it's better because unless it's 7:30 on a saturday night, you never have to wait to be seated, even with a large group. recently they have added brown rice to the menu, which is a huge plus... view more

Best Chinese food in the U.S.A.

When my husband and I moved to the Bay Area in 99, we sampled different Chinese restaurants. THANK GOODNESS Nanking was closed the day we first visited Chinatown, otherwise we would have missed the glorious experience that is the gourmet delicacies of Chef Jias. Thereafter, we refused to eat anywhere else in SF. The piquant sauces, large portions, and inexpensive prices are just too yummy for words. We tended to choo... view more

Smart tourists go here

When my wife and I travel, we ask the locals where we should go eat. We were directed to the House of Nan King. As we turned the block and saw the line, I remembered reading on Citysearch about a place right next door to the ""tourist"" spot that was just as good. Luckily for us, there is only one Chinese restaurant right next door to HoNK!. The locals are right, this place ROCKS! I highly recommend the hot and sour ... view more

Top dog in a city full of great chinese

After 6 years in SF I can say with confidence that Chef Jia's is the best chinese food in the city. Ignore the fools in the long line next door at House of Nan King (everything there tastes the same). SF is a city full of great chinese food and this is the best, what else is there to say?
