A new Chinese restaurant is coming to the Nauck neighborhood.

China House, at 2249 S. Shirlington Road, will offer Chinese cuisine via carry out and delivery. The restaurant is also applying for an ABC permit to serve beer.

An individual who answered the phone at a number listed for the restaurant said the owners expect to open in “a couple of weeks.”

    I’ve never learned how to pronounce “Nauck”. Can anyone educate me?

    • FrenchyB

      It’s pronounced ‘Green Valley’.

      Nauck: pronounced Knock. think like on boardwalk empire Enoch “Nucky” Thompson.

      if you still have a hard time call it “green valley” or “The Valley”

    How come new establishments always paper over their windows while doing interior configurations?

    • Ian

      I think it is to protect the windows from any damage during constitutions. Lots of dust & debris gets kicked up sawing things and putting in new equipment. Usually contractors will put up some boards to cover the window and to make the boards look nicer they put paper on them. Why damage the windows if it can be avoided.

    Can anyone recommend a place that has good chinese restaurant chicken curry? if there’s one that has potatoes in it, PLEASE let me know.

    • SoArl

      It’s not Chinese but Crysta Thai has the best yellow curry with potatoes that I’ve ever had.

      • SoArl

        Sorry – Crystal Thai

    This retail space has sat empty for years. Typically I’d feel bad about that, but the guy that owns and manages the property is a jerk so I understand why. The townhouses above it appear to be nice but were not well thought out. The units are 3 and 4 bedrooms on 3 stories, yet lack a yard, have no storage space and offer zero community amenities beyond a parking garage and a dumpster. There are only 12 units in the complex and according to their web site 4 are still available for sale despite being built 5 years ago. Other properties around it are newer and are thriving.

    In Nauck (sounds like caulk and/or chalk with out the L) a new carry out establishment will prepare and sell food to be taken/eaten eleswhere, therefore will not be “serving” beer. The new carry out may sell beer but… no serve food, no serve beer.
    There is a restaurant which offers carry out, but there is no such thing as a carry out thats a restaurant.
