Very tasty and reasonably priced Chinese food. The lions head meatballs were a hit. The scallion pancake a bit heavy compared to others we have had. Staff friendly and accomodating

After looking at many food choices we stopped here for dinner. We immediately got tea which was a really nice start to the meal. The food and service were both good. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Don't go here if you have food allergies. We told our server that one of us had a sesame seed allergy and she was served some in her scallion pancakes and became ill. All of the other customers were Chinese. Authentic Chinese cuisine. Average cost for quality. Not touristy. Soup dumplings, pork buns, hot and sour soup, large chow mein... More

Loved the food, ordered too much (crispy duck & 3 meals....we were on our hols)...restaurant was quiet so lacked atmosphere, which was a pity. Lovely staff. BY SF standards, very good value cost wise.

My partner and I were staying in the heart of Chinatown during our stay in San Francisco so we had to have dinner there one night! We ordered stock standard dumplings, a beef and a chicken dish and vegetarian fried rice to go with then. The fried rice was amazing - actually had lots of vegetables in it which is... More

We had lunch at Bund during our visit to China Town. The food was fresh and delicious. We had crab stuffed dumplings as an appetizer and the stirred fried shrimp and the Bejing duck as the entrées and everything was great. It was the most reasonable meal in San Francisco.

We appreciated the simplicity of food an a "home made" taste. The "Shanghai Style Stir-Fried Shrimps" are excellent !!

During a recent visit to San Francisco, my family wanted to visit Chinatown and eat some authentic cuisine. I did a lot of research, and found quite a few places that catered to tourists or to the downtown visits. I didn't want that. After further research, we discovered Bund, so decided to give it a try. As soon as we... More

Whilst this may not be the most authentic Chinese restaurant in the area, my family and I enjoyed a very tasty and varied supper. Excellent advice and efficient service from highly professional waiting staff. Salt and pepper prawns were particularly good. I'd happily return.

My wife and I have eaten in Chinatowns in many places from London to NYC to now San Fran and many more in between. This may have been the best meal that we had. Everything was freshly made and the portions were great for the price. This place was not on the top places to eat in chinatown and we... More
