Good food and service

We have been to this restaurant twice during our visit to San Francisco and the food has been very good both times. The first time during the busy Xmas/new year week when we had to wait 20 min for a table. Even though it was super busy the staff were very polite. The Second time we had a table... read more

Good food. Limited decor. We were able to sit in a comfortable booth. Bright light. Service was fine. Inexpensive. The bathrooms were a bit grotty. I wouldn't go out of my way to return, but I also wouldn't be unhappy to eat here again. Eggplant with garlic sauce was very tasty and better than the orange peel chicken.

The Spring rolls came out & were stone cold in the middle. Next came the beef(not even sure it was beef), the fried rice(appalling) & the pot stickers(all... More

Its time for lunch and my colleague suggested we go to the "Bund" for a quick bite on Jackson Street in Chinatown. Both of us have been to Shanghai, China. I was there back in August when I stayed at Shang-Rai-La and went to the Bund. The food I tasted in a tour group was not as good as this... More

Bund Shanghai had been recommended on Zagat for its delicious soup dumplings and they did not disappoint. However, everything we ordered here was delicious. The chive and egg pancakes were fresh and hot and tasty. Kung pao chicken was also fresh and delicious. Note that steamed white rice must be separately ordered. It does not come with the meal.

Lots of different dishes, fast service and fresh taste! Me and my friend payed $15 each one, sharing three different plates. Not so expensive! The position is perfect if you are visiting Chinatown. It is in the middle of this neighborhood.

We stopped here while visiting Chinatown in San Francisco... the service was just so/so and the food was pretty average. It wasn't bad; its just that I have had better.

We stumbled in here last week, after abruptly leaving Brandy Ho's restaurant, and just craving good Chinese food. We ordered pot stickers, super hot when brought to table, be careful not to burn yourself., we also had seen a picture of sesame chicken when reading their menu outside, the dish came out looking just like the picture and tasted yummy!,...

This was the best Shanghai style food that I have ever tasted outside Shanghai. The food was excellent. You should spare yourself the difficulty of identifying good food, instead, just ask the owner, who speaks the Shanghai dialect.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
