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

Excellent drunken chicken - authentic in my view and chicken was quite drunk! But the traditional "dung Bo yuk" braised pork belly was disappointing. Too sweet and the meat not "Melt in your mouth" as it should be. But the chef redeemed the dinner with the crunchy and tasty squirrel fish. It was crunchy through and through, even the head... More

Easy to find restaurant a half block off Kearny on Jackson. Unimpressive exterior and interior. Wait staff attentive but not necessarily friendly. A lot of activity here, looked like a lot of regulars with enjoying their favorites. Saw a lot of soup served family style and heaping plates of pot stickers. The soup dumplings (xiao long bao) had just the... More

made our way to this restaurant, based on TA reviews. Place was quite quiet. Food was really fresh and delicious. Crispy duck good but very small portion for the cost. All in all, a great meal.

Buried deep into china town is a real find! We have been on each of our last two visits and the shanghai food is so good - soup dumplings are an amazing treat if you have not tried them - and the shanghai noodles also terrific. Rest good, solid chinese food. We were only non-chinese late at night but not... More

We just happened to stumble by here while hungry. The atmosphere inside is pleasant and serviceable but nothing special. The prices were higher than we were used to on the East Coast as everything was ala carte. The food was promptly served and was delicious. Some of the best Chinese I have ever had. The menu had good variety. I... More

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
