Careful eating the spring rolls!

Love this place! Busy and there is a reason. Great food, great service and great prices for the city! The spring rolls need lots of cooling down time before you eat them though. Burned the heck out of my cheek and gums. Go there. You won't be disappointed!

I recommend Bund Shanghai for soup dumplings and the dan dan noodles. I'm always looking for dumplings and spicy noodles that compare with those I ate during a month's stay in China. Bund Shanghai delivers on both. The soup dumplings (pork) were tasty. Not enough broth. On the small side. The dan dan noodles are in a bowl of spicy... More

Four of us shared a Chinese Feast - it was good with a large range of freshly cooked dishes. Service was quick and attentive.

Suggested by concierge at the Palomar Hote which is a 20 minute casual, and pleasant, stroll up Grant Street. There are just so many similar looking eateries to choose from and whilst most are probably good our limited time demanded advice which was well given. The place is basic. Don't xpect white tablecloths and crystal glasses. It is a place... More

I have eaten here 4 - 5 times over the last year. Always quick to be seated, fast service, and the food is excellent. Soup dumplings, spicy chicken wings, pea shoots, shrimp, fish... all excellent!

We arrived approximately 1 1/2 hour before closing time on a weekend and the place was still packed and with customers patiently waiting for a table. When our table was ready, the host didn't walk us to the table but instead told us it was by the TV. Menus weren't even given to us until we asked for it. At... More

We went during Chinese New Year celebrations with another couple and out teenage daughter. We came in just after the lunch rush and were seated immediately. The place had a lot of people in it, but we seemed to be the only touristy people there. We decided that on this trip we would try some of the more authentic fare... More

We came for lunch and were not disappointed. This is a typical shanghai restaurant that serves dumplings which we thought were quite good. Other dishes like onion pancakes and pan fried noodles were good as well. Highly recommended.

Dont expect great service at all. We ended up eating here twice on our getaway. It is very afforable and the food really is great. Lots of variety. The service on the other hand is very straight forward, they bring you green tea, take your order, clean your plates and bill you. Never ask how anything tastes, or see if... More

We happened upon Bund Shanghai while exploring Chinatown and decided to check it out. Overall, it was a decent place to try some new dishes while in that part of town, as long as your expectations are realistic (and you bring some hand sanitizer). The diners seemed to be a mix of tourists and regulars. The menu had a lot... More

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.
