Has been my favorite of the And for years due to the casual upscale environment. First time in 20+years of terrible service from server ALISHA. TIP FOR THE DAY: Smile, be polite, serve those who are seated first, then get over yourself. You work in a wonderful place, act like you come to work to work and provide excellent service... More

We came for the garlic noodles and were not disappointed in how good they were. We also order the mixed vegetables to go with the noodles. Small restaurant in the Sunset area. The seafood served to other diners looked very good.

This Garlic pepper baked 2.5 lb crab was first boil in flavor water then baked right before serving. The flavorful garlic and pepper made the crab irresistible. The Buddha roll is stir fried bamboo shu, tree mushroom with fried tofu wrap with rice paper. You can eat them without the sauce. The roll itself is extremely flavored. The traditional Vietnamese...

So I came here to celebrate my 15 years service anniversary from my job, and boy was I in for a treat! You must order the garlic noodles and the garlic crab! If this place wasn't so far from where I lived, I would be here once a week!

This place Thang Long is known for dungeness crab and garlic noodle. But the last time we dined there, we were served with crab that was still frozen inside. It was a horrible experience. I will not recommend this place to anyone again.

My first visit and hopefully not my last. The roasted crab and catch with citrus are amazing! The service is great. I can't wait to go again.

Went on a recommendation from a friend that is an SF local. Best crabs I've ever had! I've actually never had whole crab only legs so I was a little intimidated. By the end of the meal I thought I'd end up licking the shell! My husband and I ordered a roasted crab, garlic noodles and the crab puffs all... More

Get the dungeness crab roastic in garlic, this is superb. The salty and peppery flavor has that perfect balance that you want to wipe and dip the crabmeat for every bite. You need to reserve though and cannot just walk in. Very accessible, ride on Judah street, just take N Judah Ocean cable car and get off at 46th. It... More

We have been here thru the years. The first time was amazing. The last time was not. Overpriced and not really worth it overall. We also ordered the combination seafood fried rice and all the seafood was rubbery and not appetizing. And to top it all off, our server not so great.

Thanh Long is a Vietnamese restaurant off the beaten path in San Francisco. Their business card says, "World-famous Roast Crab since 1971." Not an exaggeration. The menu has many other items on it, but if you are coming to Thanh Long, you ARE coming for crab and maybe something else, but you are coming for the crab. If not, find... More
