Nice resteraunt the food was delicious: our waitress though checked on us every 5-10 mins which was a bit disruptive .

The food though was excellent: portion sizes are hughe: food is a bit pricy but delicious cocktails and dessert excellent.

Really enjoy Nanking - good food, environment and service. But I wouldn't go without some sort of deal or special. Their rack rate menu prices are just too high, compared to what other sushi places in Fort Lauderdale charge - even those on or around Las Olas Blvd. We had two single liquor well brand drinks, my partner had one bowl of soup and we each ordered 2 rolls a piece (his were straightfwd tuna rolls, mine were specialty). No dessert. The tab was $92.

Love the place...hope they offer a special sometime soon.

Everything was fantastic, from the food to the atmosphere my fiancé and I loved it. The only thing we didn't like was the service. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel like we were such a big inconvenience to the staff. Our server wasn't friendly and showed that she wanted get the order as fast as possible and rushed us. I ordered a sweet tea and she brought me unsweetened and told me they don't have sweet. I would have ordered something different if I would have known ahead of time. We got the spicy salmon roll as an appitizer (Which was fantastic) but after we finished our plates were never taken. After a short wait after the app, our entrees were brought out but our plates were never taken. I can't remember exactly what we order but it was a lot of food, very filing, and absolutely delicious. The only thing that brought down my eating experience was that both my water and tea were left empty and wasn't refilled until when I was almost done eating. We were offered dessert but we declined and requested the check. She left to get the check but the plates (including the appitizer plates) were not picked up. After she brought the check, took our payment, and then come back to bring back the slip was when she decided to get the plates. Overall I would give Nanking a second try however it's because of the amazing food and atmosphere. The service is definitely not what would bring a customer back.

This is a great restaurant with great potential - unfortunately the service is very poor. Food was very good with the exception of the Mongolian Beef which was chewy. The hostess was not very friendly and our waitress was uninformed and unprofessional. A wonderful restaurant like this needs much better service. We were sharing dishes but they did not bring us plates. After the food started cooling down, I got up to find the waitress and asked her for plates for the second time. Her response was "I'll get them when I can". Sorry, this just doesn't cut it.

I really don't understand all the complaints and lukewarm or poor reviews. We had terrific, friendly service, a wonderful outdoor table, relaxing jazz music over the speakers (thank you for NOT blasting the tiresome top 40 and dance music you hear everywhere else.) the sushi was very fresh. What else could we ask for? The menu prices are definitely too high, based upon mid to upscale sushi places elsewhere in Ft Laud - I think that's the only issue I'd have. But the restaurant runs occasional groupons and with one in hand, that issue is mitigated. We're locals who have eaten here at least 4-5 times before and fully intend to return in the next few months.

This isn't the place I'd visit if you're in a rush or just want to eat and go...maybe that's the problem other reviewers faced. We were in no hurry...just enjoying the atmosphere and each other's company.

Open table has wrong address.
Beautiful venue, food was amazing. Staff was new, had to ask for silverware after food was delivered. Had to ask for waters to be delivered to table.

I called to advise i was running 20mins late. They did not deactivate their voicemal. I arrived and greeter told me i had to wait 10-15mins. no tables. I requested manager and she apologized but sat us right away. Confusion as to who was our waiter. Food took 43mins to arrive. 4 other guest tables walked out due to poor service. Not worth it.

Kung Pao Chicken - way too salty.

Wine - poor quality

Service - slow

The food was worth waiting for but wait we did -- 30 minutes for our drink order and had to track down the waiter for the wine and food.
