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.

The restaurant was good. Nice pork buns, but the rest was just barely above-average chinese food. Service was not bad, tho steamed buns were slow to order. Between 3-4, decided to round up.

We wanted our grandsons to experience real Chinese food, so off to China town we went while exploring San Francisco, CA. This restaurant was down one of the "side" streets, Jackson street so we "peeked" in. There were some Chinese families inside, the menu was posted by the door and in both English and Chinese explanation, so we decided to... More

We were looking for a noodle shop in China town with above average recommendations last Sunday and decided to try the Bund. Mostly Chinese families eating in the restaurant which is always a good sign. Since the were only the two of us we could only sample 3 dishes; Xia Long Bao, pork pot stickers and Zha Jiang (Chili Source)... More

Went here on a recommendation as I was wandering through Chinatown -- and glad I did! The restaurant was pretty busy (it was 1 PM -- prime lunch time) so I had to wait 10 minutes or so, but that wasn't too bad -- lots of people watching to be had. Had the Xia Long Bao (sp?) -- known as... More

After reading reviews here, we decided that this would be the place to eat after spending the day in Chinatown, and it did not disappoint! We got there around 3:30 so it wasn't busy,only 2 other tables occupied. The World Cup finals had just ended so all the staff were watching the trophy ceremony and festivities. When they noticed we... More

Avoid this place like the plague!!! I went there because it was recommended by the concierge where I was staying. It was less than half-full. The hostess looked at me, then looked at the manager, who shook his head no. For the record, I am not and don't look like a bum, and have never been denied seating before. I... More

We took a guided tour of Chinatown, which we would recommend to anyone, and then had lunch at Bund Shanghai Restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly. And the price was very reasonable. We made sure to check it out first on trip advisor and we found a great place. There seems like a 1,000 places to... More
