Staying in Oakland this week for business, and decided to get some Chinese food upon arrival in the city. Shan Dong was highly recommended by the front desk clerk at the hotel, so I decided to try it out. The service was quick, but the taste of the food was mediocre. I know it's not a great thing when the only thing that makes Chinese food have a good taste is adding salt...in fact, I get worried when I see salt and pepper shakers on a table in a Chinese restaurant. In addition to the Beef and Broccoli for my meal, I ordered pot stickers. I found them to be overstuffed and too large, which resulted in them being too gummy/doughy. I was disappointed in those!
The restaurant was relatively clean, but cluttered.
Probably would not go back - especially when there are much better Chinese restaurants across the bay in San Francisco.
