Omg, this place is AMAZING. We had heard about their chicken wings and green beans and had to try them. Let me just tell you, you will be addicted. These were the best chicken wings and green beans we have ever had! I will be...More

We had a big group and got seated quickly. We ordered several items including chopped fried chicken one with sauce, one with separate sauce. We loved the black noodles. Green beans were too sweet for us. Service was so fast! Food was excellent and I...More

This place makes the best fried chicken in a spicy, sticky sauce! It is so good that diners will line up for a table way before this restaurant opens for dinner at 5 p.m. We arrived at 4:30 and there's already a line half a...More

I ordered the chicken wings to go, very tasty, along with shrimp appetizer and rice. Everything was delicious. The only bad part is the parking!

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

Ok, so this isn't going to be on a low-calorie menu, but my sinful favorite, Chinese Fried Chicken-diced, is a delicious treat. An order is sufficient for two people, so share. Ordinarily very busy....ft there early...like 11am when it first opens..and if there is a...More

Solid Chinese food, long time stalwart of the dining scene on the area. The house special fried chicken wings a must try. Their handmade noodles very good too. The dumplings get mixed reviews. I had much better elsewhere. Reasonable prices. Gets crowded so either come...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. :(
