Good Shanghai dumplings

It's hard to find true Shanghai dumplings in the US. New York has some great spots; this place does a solid job with their soup dumplings. The individual dumplings were rather small compared to others I've enjoyed, though. Consider getting an extra plate to make sure you fill up. Good service and... read more

The individual dumplings were rather small compared to others I've enjoyed, though. Consider getting an extra plate to make sure you fill up. Good service and this place is in the heart of Chinatown.

➕: Good food, attentive waiters. Authentic chinese. ➖: very warm and humid indoors - to a degree that it almost ruined the meal. All in all a good experience. Recommended.

I searched this restaurant out because it was reviewed/advertised as not using MSG. Not so sure this is true!? It seems to be a family-owned place. Everything was good. We ha Shanghai Noodles, Mu Shu Pork, Egg Rolls and Dumplings. They have a good wine list>

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

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.
