    Dry fried chicken wings and the pot stickers were phenomenal. Tea duck (their take on Peking duck) was p good, comes w buns & hoisin sauce. Black bean noodles were the food version of "meh."

    Dry-fried chicken wings

  • Korgel B.

    Foods here so so. Wings ok. Not top ten in city.

  • Korgel B.

    Uh why do they expand next door with # 2. Shouldn't that be done across town. Makes no sense for overrated chines restaurant. Will # 3 San Tung open across road?

  • Luis A.

    If you're planning on eating here, be sure to order the wings, they are fantastic.

    I have been looking for so many great cooking over the year, They are so authentic in here. I tried everything that I could, from the soups to the dumplings and everything was excellent.

    The wait staff looks like a hipster, indie band working their day jobs. Hope they make the big time. 😁😀

    Personally I don't understand the super hype. I like Bonchon chicken wings much better. The wings here are too sweet to my taste. I like the leek dumplings better.

    Don't expect to have authentic San Tung food here.

    Order to go. Then wade through the people waiting in line and go to the back. Take home and enjoy.

    Everyone talks about the chicken wings, but I reckon the hot and sour soup is where it's at. Smells like earth, tastes like heaven.

    The owners are innovative! They opened "San Tung #2" next door. Will they'll open San Tung #3 when Peasant Pies,next door moves+San Tung #4 when Chinese place across the street closes? I must know!😉

    Better with large groups so you can have some variety. Many things here taste over-sauced/savory.

    Wow - MUST order the dry fried chicken with the glaze. Also try the honey walnut prawns, everything is amazing!

    Legend has it that Buddha had chicken wings here... And reached enlightenment.

    What a stupid idea. Restaurant #2 right next door. Not a well thought out idea. Couldn't they have done something showcasing their food for in a different type of venue?

  • Long Duk D.

    Don't believe the hype. Their food is good not great. Though their wings are awesome. It's what keeps them relevant.

    Long Duk Dong · September 22, 2014
  • Chris L.

    Good but not necessarily good enough to justify the really long line.

    Chris Lee · September 21, 2014
  • Pete M.

    The wings, dry and glazed. But you probably already knew that. Also the mustard greens noodle broth was delish

    Come at 2PM. Miss the lines but catch the lunch specials.

    I don't like wings, & these ones rocked my world. The secret is out about this place, so the wait is long. Put your name on the list & sneak to the Mucky Duck 2 blocks away to slip in a quick whiskey.

    Massive lines. Every day of the week.

    Get the chicken wings- sweet and unbelievably crispy

    Go into the back and order to go, then head to a local pub and eat there. Fantastic.

    I am in the minority when I say that this place is overrated. There's one thing that I agree with,their wings are amazing. They are a must get.

    Bourbon🍸Explorer · August 10, 2014
  • Gigi A.

    Make sure you get the chicken wings, crispy and juicy.

    The kimchi and black bean chicken

  • Kenny L.

    Don't bother calling in a to-go order during peak times. They're so busy they just ignore the calls. Place your order in person and go buy some snacks elsewhere while you wait.

    What can be said about the Inner Sunset's San Tung other than OMG WE CAN'T GET ENOUGH. The wait is long and the service is appalling, yes, but the food is cheap, crazy-good, and plentiful. Read more

    The incendiary Original Dry Glazed Fried Chicken Wings at this Chinese restaurant have such a huge following that there's a wait for lunch and dinner every day. Read more

    The wings are expertly fried and glazed with a sweet ginger-garlic sauce, but the menu goes beyond poultry; the cold plates and appetizers section of the menu is vastly underappreciated. Read more

    We went for one reason. And the chicken wings live up to every ounce of hype.
