We discovered the Bund by accident and were pleased we had. Whilst neither the exterior or interior decor inspire confidence the food was excellent and the service prompt and attentive.Overall very good value.

We ordered the soup dumplings (both types), rice cake with cabbage and pork, and bok choy sprouts. The bok choy was steamed with slices of ginger, a fresh taste to complement the rice cake. Everything was delicious and served quickly, the ingredients tasted and looked very fresh. Served with good quality jasmine tea. Would definitely go back to try other... More

In the heart of Chinatown, Bund Shanghai has very plain décor, moderate prices, excellent food, and prompt service. It offers excellent value for a restaurant in a large city. Every dish we ordered was very, very good.

We are familiar with Shanghai, and the Bund area, so when we saw this restaurant name we had to try it just for fun. It was definitely worth it. Great food, which is why we go to restaurants.

A friend of the family recommended and accompanied us to this restaurant. He promised a Chinese meal like we have never experienced. WOW! Did he come through! The dishes were all light and flavorful. The soup dumplings are out of this world. Our friend ordered so I missed the names of the dishes. A tofu dish melted in your mouth,... More

We visited Chinatown after an afternoon of shopping in Union Square! Wasn't sure where would be good as most places look very similar from outside and so we looked on TripAdvisor to see where there was considered to be good food in a clean environment. My partner is pretty fussy on oriental food given previous bad experiences with layers of... More

We stopped to rest and have dim sum. Dim not! The spring rolls were extremely greasy and the pork and cabbage filling was goop. This is definitely not a do-over.

We're happy we checked out reviews in advance and found this spot during a recent quick stop in San Francisco. We discovered Xiao Long Bao only a few years ago and since then have savored them in a number of different countries, including Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan, including one of the Din Tai Fung locations in Taipei. In a... More

The food is really good there. Found this through tripadvisor and food was very good. Them being Chinese, communication was a little difficult.

This place is known for its authentic xiao long bao and it doesn't disappoint. We also ordered the Shang hai fried noodles which was very tasty. Service is fast, they try get as many people through their doors as possible so probably not a place to sit for hours and chat.
