This is one of the best Chinese restaurants in the area. Pretty simple dishes, not that oily and hearty at their best. Just the thing for a cold night.

I love the hearty feel of the food from this place. Clearly I wasnt eating the Chinese food that I really would like. This place gave me more variety when it comes to Chinese cooking.

Great dumplings and noodles. I just have to take this time and give the favor back. The food is fresh and hot, very genuine Chinese food.

This restaurant serves authentic southern chinese food. I especially like the steamed pork buns so I definately recommend those. The prices were good and the wait staff were very pleasant. Parking was decent, much better than you would encounter at other restaurants in the area.

I have to go to San Tung every time I am back in the city. The food here is amazing. I recommend the potstickers and dumplings and the dry fry chicken. The wait is long though so make sure you go early or make reservations. The service is not world class but the food makes up entirely for that. Also, I suggest trying any noodles from here because they make the noodles themselves.

Pros: great food, great price, always good, good for large groups

Cons: usually a wait (call ahead and reserve a spot if you're pressed for time)

Their signature spicy chicken wings are fantastic. My favorite noodle is the seafood black bean noodles as well as the peanut butter noodles. Their dumplings are great too. There's always a wait, but that just comes with the territory

I went to San Tung after hearing about how great it is from friends and online reviews. I probably went in really high expectations because I didn't think the food was as fantastic as it sounded. The was a long wait list when I got there, as expected. I waited about 40 minutes before getting a table, which wasn't too bad for a Friday night. I ordered the black bean noodle, the famous chicken wings (wet-style, there was sauce all over them), and the dry stir-fried green beans. The green beans weren't bad, but I did not really like the chicken wings. I think I should have ordered them dry. I'm not really a fan of sweet- flavored wings (I prefer hot wings, just spicy, no sweet goo). I wasn't sure what to expect out of the noodles, but they were also all right. I might go back and give it another try, but there are plenty of good places to eat on Irving St and all around the Sunset.

Wow, some of the best chicken wings I've ever had. Make sure to ask them to lessen the spice if you can't take spicy foods.

There is usually a line for this place but it is definitely worth the wait. The prices and portions are reasonable. The steamed dumpling are okay but the dry fried chicken legs are a must have, juicy and crispy. The pot stickers and noodles are so are good! The food has good flavor and tastes fresh.

The sizzling rice soup, and mu shu is the best! Prices are very reasonable, and they're always busy. The only bad part is the parking during peek hours. but, that's to be expected when "restauranting" in a city such as san fran. you'll soon forget about parking...hey, you might forget about your car, altogether (especially if you're korean), when you discover that this san tung's has some dishes that you only find at Chinese restaurants run by Korean people, in particular, Ja Jang Mein (a black bean noodle dish) and Jang Bong (a spicy seafood soup noodle dish). Both dishes are very tasty. Their chicken wings are also really good. They are busy, but they move people through quickly."

I am a super picky eater and I hate waiting in lines. The crowd may be long and my glass may stay empty but the food is GREAT. Dry fried chicken wings are the best. That with the black bean noodles and you have a meal for 2 for under $20.

San Tung is a winner in terms of taste and price. Don't miss the famous fried-dry (or wet) chicken, which is a very tasty deep fried and peppery battered chicken. I would suggest any General Tso chicken fans to try it.

PROS: Famous fried dry (or wet) chicken.
CONS: Long long waits. Get there early.

The noodles were great, the beef noodle has a strong flavor, and there's a spicy seafood noodle which is very good. The portions are big, one noodle plus an order of dumplings (pork better than shrimp) or potsticker is enough for two.

Unbelievable dry fried chicken wings. You'll get addicted. Been there over 50 times. Show up before 6:30 and there's usually no wait.

Dumplings and noodles are homemade. I personally like the mu shu.

Faux orchids and faded red Tsingtao paper lanterns minimally decorate this brightly lit dining room. Consistently buzzing with local noodle addicts, the cacophonous space makes conversation nearly impossible. Servers…
