Went on a Sunday evening because of other recommendations on this site. Food was okay, but no better than easily obtainable elsewhere. Service was disinterested.

This restaurant is not much to look at, and the staff could be a little more friendly and attentive, but you forget all about that once the food arrives. We had a few different dishes, and they were all very well executed. Great value restaurant.

I was able to enjoy this jewel of a restaurant two nights in a row with friends while visiting SF this weekend. In brief this place is outstanding. The food is well prepared, extremely flavorful and fresh. The service is very good and the dishes are brought to the table w/o delay. A must for any local or visitor seeking... More

We ate at the Bund restaurant for lunch hoping to try the soup dumplings that people rave about. While they were tasty, they were not as succulent as others that I have had. The noodle dish was quite good. A decent stop, with ok service. The decor is the modern Chinese that can use a bit of updating.

Had lunch there today. Absolutely delicious. Started with Won-ton soup which was fabulous followed by Kung Pao Chicken and Beef and Mushroom in Black pepper sauce. Excellent service as well as one of the best Chinese meals ever. Thanks to Tripadvisor for always being accurate. Prices also were extremely reasonable and portions are quite large.

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.
