This has to be my WORST experience with Indo-Chinese / Asian fusion food.
Nanking has completely fallen off the grid with their food quality. This wasn’t the case back until 2011.
PROS: (hardly any….yet)
- The Chicken Fried rice ‘used’ to be delectable
- Chicken Chilly ‘was’ truly authentic..not anymore
- Location wise, its in the heart of Jersey City (Exchange Place) – Baah!
- It is astonishing for a brand like Nanking (or is it?) to compromise on quality and quantity at the same time
- Dish portions are minuscule
- Quality has degraded tremendously over the last few months
- If you order for delivery, be prepared have your dessert first. It takes eons to deliver
- For the quality & quantity, the price is a complete RIP-OFF (hope I’m loud and clear on that!)
I WILL NOT order food from NanKing going forwards… Its a disgrace to Indo-Chinese food and that too at a premium!
I’ve never tried Cuban so may not the best judge for its authenticity @ Sophies, but the place does not disappoint.
- Meal size is HUGE
- Convenient location (45th, between 5th and 6th)
-Super fast service (if you wish to sit and eat instead of ‘to-go’)
-Cheap but superb quantity
-GREEN SAUCE.. Period!
-Not the best place to sit and enjoy your meal
- Cramped interiors
-Low on spice (barring the green sauce)
-Table service fast, but had to share the sauce with the adjoining table. Again mentioning crampy interiors.
Very few places offer as much quantity as Sophies… for $10. The Sandwich combos are amazing! Give it a try.
This place has to be the best for Cheap, Good, Delicious, Sumptuous food!! in NY (yeah beat that!)
- Centrally Located, 46th and 6th Ave
- Cheap food
- Supreme taste
- Quick Service
-Can order online for Take-out
-Winner of NYC Best street Food 2008/09 (pardon me if I screwed up on the year)
-Should have a delivery option
-Quality of meat and veggies can be questionable (for the finicky ones)
-Wait time (if not ordered online) can be more than 10 mins (not much, but try standing in a cold winter day for that long). Online orders are highly recommended
This place is definitely worth a try if you somewhere nearby 46th and 6th Ave. If not, Relocate ;) 5/5 for me!
-No doubt, the cheap yet delicious Kathi rolls are to die for, but they have so many options in the menu.
-The Combo Kabab (Chicken Tikka+Chapli Kabab) takes the cherry I.M.O.
It is the most unique combo I have ever had. And every dime worth it!
