Decent for decent price

I usually don't care for Chinese food but these place is pretty good. I love their chicken wings and I love the black bean noodles. Service was eh as they were busy and some seemingly weren't great at English. They were pretty busy so don't be surprised if you're splitting tables with other... read more

While looking for something to eat, we came across a huge crowd of people waiting for the restaurant to open up. We didn't understand what the fuss was about so we asked around and we were told they offer the best chicken wings in town. We decided to give it a try. There are 2 restaurants just next to each...

I've been to San Tung 3 times, but I won't get duped by positive reviews or lines out the door again and won't return. We had to write our name on the board, wait for a bit, and for what? Seriously, what are people raving about and waiting for?!? Has the cult of San Tung brainwashed that many people? The... More

Went for a late lunch, around 2:30, but still had to sign up on the white board because no tables were available. It was around a 10-minute wait, so it wasn't bad at all. We had a quick look at the menu and ordered #6, the black beans noodles (dry) and the fried chicken wings (dry also) #72. We thought... More

San Tung is out of the way for the typical tourist BUT if you love delish Chinese food, then this is the place to be! First off, the wait is long.... they have a wet board to write your name and # of people in your party. We arrive at 5pm on a Sunday, and I would say that the... More

We visited because a friend who previously lived in the city told us not to miss it & he was so right. This friend hasn't been there for 5 years so we decided to play it by ear but when we saw the line out the door with locals we joined in. We got the wings & steamed pot stickers... More

Never mind Chinatown. You can find it here. We did take-out on a Monday night, and the lines for a table were long. Try their hot-and-sour soup, Mongolian beef (watch the peppers!) and other dishes.
