We haven't been here for a few years but came back during this trip to SF. Absolutely the best chicken wings ever!!!!! The hot n sour soup was wonderful along with the traditional Chinese dishes. The vegetables were done to perfection and the service was great. Wonderful job!

This place is know for their dry fried chicken wings. get there early since the lines can get pretty long. but once you''re seated. get the chicken wings! sweet fried goodness. the dumplings are good but you can get those anywhere. They even oped a restaurant next door for the overflow traffic.

We came at 5:40 for the opening and didn't have to wait. We ordered the pork dumplings ( excellent), the fried chicken wings ( a must) and the Black bean noodle ( so good ). With beers, it was a great meal for less than $40! And we brought back left overs home!

We visited from South Carolina and ate here twice in 2 days!! The dry wings were out of this world and we are already craving them again! The dumplings were heavenly and the service was fantastic-they treated us just like a local, not the very out of place southern hillbillies that we felt like licking that wing sauce off our... More

We were in San Francisco on vacation and staying in the Inner Sunset neighborhood, so we wanted to find some great local food. This place was a real highlight of our trip. The doors open at 5:00 p.m., and people were lining up before they even opened. Once inside, we were quickly seated and treated to complimentary kimchi, which was... More

Wings..."these are a few of my favorite things". And San Tung hooks up a very nice version! Way better than the usual over coated and sauced versions elsewhere. Gigantic Dumplings are big bold and brimming with flavor. Noodles were decent too. Not sure how to avoid the wait just yet but I am guessing early or late are your best... More

You know you're at a good Chinese restaurant is there are mostly Chinese people there. The food was fantastic, the space was unappealing, and it was located slightly off the beaten path of Chinatown. Not a tourist trap. Good food and good prices.

I ordered ma po tofu. It was quite oily. Price was on the higher side. Their complimentary kimchi was good. Line was too long so we decided to take out instead.

Drove 20 minutes to try the chicken that was recommended by friends and was definitely worth it! Flavor was delicious with the perfect amount of crunch to it. Went when they were closing and the staff was nice enough to let us through. Definitely a winner in my books!
