Visited with my wife after reading the reviews. She said that this was the best Chinese food that she had tasted. For $40 we had the dumplings, spring rolls, sweet & sour chicken and a noodle dish and a large beer. Very good value. The food was delicious and the service very good. We both left feeling full and happy.

We waited 15 minutes to get in which was fine. We had a tasty meal. Unfortunately they told us dim sum would take 40 minutes. But we shared a really nice meal with good service. The portions are very generous!

We chose Bund Shanghai to get a taste of shanghai style cuisine. The crispy duck was very good. Chicken and corn soup was a bit bland. The service was friendly and helpful.

We stopped here for lunch during a recent trip to San Francisco. This is probably the best Chinese food I've eaten in the U.S. The Xiaolongbao were excellent and the prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend!

I tried other restaurants in San Francisco China Town but this one was better than the others. It does not look like it from the outside but it is worth a try. We were seated promptly and the place was not too crowded. I ordered the Hot and Sour soup and when I got it I thought it was an... More

We tried this restaurant based a on other reviews. The food was good and cheap. The service was not very good. We had to ask for a glass of water several times. We also had to ask for fortune cookies at the end of our meal. All of our food arrived at the same time:spring rolls, hot and sour soup,... More

I have to say that this was our 3rd choice Chinese restaurant the night we visited - the other 2 had waiting lines and this had spare tables. It just about gets 4/5 - the service was a little patchy, though friendly enough. The food was fine and we were certainly full by the end. Value was also good. The... More

4 friends from Switzerland and I went for Chinese. We were not disappointed in the recommendation from our concierge. Not a fancy place, looked a bit utilitarian, but it was busy and the food was good. I like steamed dumplings - excellent - and I had the spicy twice-cooked pork. We also shared beef in mushroom sauce, and a pork... More

My in-laws visited Bund last year and told us we had to try it. So we did! We've been lucky to have some awesome Chinese food over the years, and this holds its own. The service was average - efficient but unenthusiastic, but the food was nice. We had the soup dumplings (pork and pork/crab), they were lovely, as well... More
