Tickle your chinese bone at Nanking.

NANKING Chinese Restaurant

For all those who love Chinese food, Nanking is the place to be! It is undoubtedly the best Chinese food joint in Nagpur. Nanking at Residency Road, was established in 1968 by Mrs. Chang Moi Yen, mother of Mr. Fonging Chang – Retd. Superintendent of Custom and Central Excise. After his mother migrated to Canada, Mr. Fonging took voluntary retirement after 29 years of service and took up the administrative responsibilities of Nanking. Due to the huge popularity of the restaurant, another branch of Nanking, namely – ‘Nanking May Fair Chinese Restaurant was opened in Sadar, opposite Haldiram’s.

Suave and amiable: the ambience is something you’ll be quite impressed with. The place is perfect for formal meetings as well as social gatherings.

Both the restaurants have been issued “A” Grade Certificates by the Health Department of NMC (Nagpur Municipal Corporation).
