I def have my specific goto dishes here. Shrimp and leek dumplings, dry fried wings, and green beans. I’ll occasionally order a dish outside of that which is still good. This place is busy so be strategic if you can. The one downside is getting...More

This is our GO TO Chinese restaurant when we come to San Francisco! The 3 main dishes (my opinion) that you have to try is the Pepper Pork, Steamed Pork Dumplings, and their famous Fried Chicken Wings! The chicken is seriously addicting and only order...More

The queue is long in this restaurant. This one is a chinese korean restaurant. We ordered black noodle, chicken wing, spring bean and dry dumpling. All the food are delicious and not expensive (we are 5 adults, 2 children). You should try this one, but...More

There's something magical about San Tung. Its appearance makes you wonder if you've found the right place, but the food changes the landscape. Depending on how crowded it is, the service will waiver into questionable territory, but a late lunch may redefine that anxiety. Order...More

First off, come early and you'd stand a better chance of snagging a table. We made the mistake of coming at past 830 on a Saturday night and we were pretty much told to expect to wait for 1.5 hours. We decided to have Sunday...More

This place will have a wait but it's well worth it. Had the chicken wings, chicken fried rice, string beans and pot stickers all were amazing.

What a find! When you arrive at a Chinese restaurant at 5:30 on a Tuesday and there is a queue, it's good news, but when the people eating are all Chinese you know it has to be very good. Well we were not disappointed.Excellent and...More

We Just ate thee yesterday after hearing such great reviews. To avoid the lunch crowds we arrived jright before opening at 11:20 a.m. I was so anxious to try the famous Dry Fried Chicken wings with garlic, ginger and red peppers with the sweet sticky sauce. Unfortunately they were “DRY”. The meat was minimal on the drummetes and wings, over cooked and sauce was fair. Perhaps since they were double fried, they may have been previously fried at another time. My niece gave me the “knock-off” copycat recipe and we both made it and they were superior. My friends mentioned that the quality of all the food has gone down.. possibly from all the attention. The black bean sauce noodles with beef, shrimp and calamari was also tasteless as well small in portion size. The shrimp and leek dumplings were nothing special too. We tried to mix the condiments of soy sauce, vinegar and chilies to enhance the taste of the dumplings. A good dumpling doesn’t need to have condiments to doctor them up. There are many other Chinese restaurants in San Francisco serving much better than San Tung. I would not return back there nor recommend it. :(
