Our son was craving Happy Wok and we could not find either that or Panda Express near our hotel. We stopped in San Dong Express and were pleasantly surprised with the quality and quantity of the food. The staff will explain the entrees to you, if you have questions. Definitely will recommend this restaurant to others, don't be discouraged by... More

Well priced, owned by the same family for many years and each meal cooked after order is placed, San Dong is plain on the outside and fantastically fresh on the inside. Be adventurous and try a noodle dish on the back of the menu. The owners will help you select something delish and served in a beautiful bowl (big as... More

Family owned, friendly staff, mama is often at the register and papa is often your chef. Cooked up right in front of you, with the freshest ingredients! The sauces are different, probably from the owner's Korean background, and it makes a difference. I have been all over the US...east coast, the south, west coast and Canada. This is The Best...

We had a hankering for some Chinese food while staying in Milwaukee and decided on San Dong. I ordered the San Dong Rice and the sweet and sour chicken, while my wife ordered the hot braised chicken and an order of rice as well. We also ordered two orders of Crab Meat Rangoon. Let me just say that the fried... More

The place sure doesn't look appealing but the food is awesome. If you are staying at a hotel make sure to ask for a plate and plastic ware . If what you love is not on the menu- ask and you shall receive. I did.

You come here for food that you need to be made quickly. The owner is half Chinese and half Korean that always looks for the best ingredients to make the food prepared the best he can. It's a family business so they hire a few Mexican cooks to help with the cooking and cleaning as old as the owner is... More

Ordered San Dong chow mein on the phone. Got there and my order hadn't even been given to the cooks. The food was terrible, there was no noodles and most of the it was just cabbage with very little amount of meat. A complete waste of $8.45! The place also looks like a dump. I don't even think the owner... More
