New location in tenderloin for Ha Nam Ninh [San Francisco]

Dave MP | Dec 14, 201405:09 PM

Ha Nam Ninh has moved to a new location at 701 Larkin St, which is at the corner of Ellis. The new space is much bigger (more than twice the size of the old location), and today at lunch there were around 30 people eating.

Service was sort of a mess...lots of tables with uncleared dishes, slow wait times for tea and menus (I ended up just grabbing these myself), and we waited about 20 mins just to get a Vietnamese coffee.

But on the plus side, food was really good, once it came. Banh xeo was maybe the best i've had in SF -- nice crispy exterior, plump fresh shrimp, thin slices of pork, bean sprouts that were cooked but still had a bit of crunch, and really nice herbs (as I was used to having at the old location).

Hu tieu nam vang dry style was also very good, though the noodles were a tad overcooked. But everything else about it was very nice, and much like it was at the old location.

Hopefully they will get used to their bigger size and new space and continue to do well! As long as you're not in a rush and don't expect stellar service, it's definitely worth it!
