What are your favourite Nanjing restaurants? 3 years 8 months ago #8386

Nanjing has an ever-growing selection of national & international restaurants to choose from.

Feel free to share with us which are your favourites and why.

You can choose from any restaurant based in Nanjing should it be your favourite local restaurant to any Michelin star restaurant.

One of my favorite places to have a relaxing meal after work is Talking 2. The menu is limited, but the food drinks are good (and reasonably priced). The staff do their jobs well, it's rarely crowded in early evenings, and the music selection is always interesting.

IMO, if there is one thing that they can improve at Talking 2, it is to serve the steak sandwiches that they serve at the original location. :yumyum:

I always enjoy visiting the Nanjing-style restaurant on the 6th floor (not 100% sure) of Deji Plaza.

For international cuisine, it's difficult to beat the buffet on the 7th floor of the Sofitel. Always leave feeling stuffed but very satisfied.

Re:What are your favourite Nanjing restaurants? 3 years 8 months ago #8392

I'm going to choose 2 Chinese & 2 International restaurants;

1/ Secco (www.hellonanjing.net/nanjing-directory/r...ts/global-cuisine/93)
It has to be Secco. My number 1 choice for food & drinks. The menu is amazing and food is cooked to perfection. I have never been disappointed with what I've ordered here.
Some people consider it a bit on the expensive side but when you get the dish put in front of you you know what you're paying for.
One recommendation the Bavarian platter with loads of bacon gravy :yumyum:

2/ Zen Restaurant (4th floor, Deji Plaza, Xinjiekou) No Directory Listing yet.
I've only discovered this place recently but it's a Cantonese restaurant like the ones you get back home! The Beijing Duck is good and they wrap the roles for you:)
Great service and despite being in Deji Plaza it is reasonably priced if you stay away from the wine list.
Recommend the prawn toast,beef with mustard,Beijing duck,pidgeon.

3/ Le 5 Sens (www.hellonanjing.net/nanjing-directory/r...s/global-cuisine/129)
This was the first decent foreign restaurant I found in nanjing when I arrived and almost solely ate there for the first 6 months of my stay. The standards have fallen a bit since the head chef has moved to their new restaurant on Beijing Dong Lu but I still enjoy the food,service & ambiance.
Recommend the foie gras.

4/ An Jia Xiao Yuan/ The Big Pig
www.hellonanjing.net/nanjing-directory/r.../chinese-cuisine/272
Anyone I know calls this place by it's unofficial name; The Big Pig because of the delicious pork ribs they do. I thought the Yunnan restaurant on Guangzhou Lu had good ribs but nothing compared to this place. They have 4 locations but I always go to the one near Finnegans Wake. Little difficult to find though but worth looking for.
Recommend the pork ribs! 88RMB but feeds 3/4 people.

Hmm... I've heard you mention the 7th floor Sofitel buffet a couple of times. Think I'm going to have to check that one out...

Round Table in 1912. Edible steaks along with salad, soup, dessert and coffee for just under 100 RMB. Maybe not the best food I've found, but very good considering the price.

Good to know. Never know where to eat in 1912. Hate Blue Marlin food and don't like hotpot.

I always like to go to Wanqinglou at Fuzimiao. A bit touristy but they serve this nice course of Nanjing snacks that just keep coming and coming, and they have some live enterntainment as well.

If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through

Hai Di Lao hotpot (?????). Really good quality hotpot with good food and excellent service. There is one on Chang Le Lu close to Aqua City and there is a new one on the 4th floor of New Century Plaza in Da Xing Gong.

Skyways is addictive, my favorite spot in town for lunch. I always order the same thing: salami with cheese on ciabatta with mustard and salad. :yumyum:

Can't believe no one has mentioned Tairyo Teppanyaki yet! 150RMB for all you can eat steak and all you can drink beer and saki - it doesn't get much better than that.

:yumyum:

Back on the hotpot note - jiu bai guo never fails either. Consistently good quality food and service at a decent price.

Re:What are your favourite Nanjing restaurants? 2 years 3 months ago #23760

Thought I would revive this post by asking some other folks for their new and updated suggestions of favorite Nanjing restaurants - For my list: Himalaya, Jimmy's, Pisa Pizza, a little Wushu-theme place near Hunan Lu that's almost impossible to find, a Xinjiang-style place near Ciao Italia, and a Vietnamese place in Xinjiekou's Huanya Plaza mall -

Btw- if anyone can post an exact address or phone number for Vietnamese resto in Huanya plaza, I would really appreciate it!
