    "This place is known for its crispy, spicy fried chicken. While that always gets me in the door, I never skip an order of the shrimp & leek dumplings. They are a must!" - Chef Christopher Thompson Read more

    San Tung is strictly a Chinese food restaurant, but their wings are unique. Head to the Sunset for their specialty dry wings, which are deep fried and flavored with ginger, red pepper, and garlic. 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

    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

    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.

    I can't stand eating in restaurants with long wait lists, but San Tung is my ish! Dry fried chicken wings are a duh! And order cold noodles too. Love the sautéed string beans and dumplings also.

    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.

    For the vegetarians out there: try the fried veggie potstickers and the veggie mushu! Also if you're with meat-eaters ask for the chicken wings with sauce on the side. That way you can use the sauce!!

    Dry fried chicken is a must. You'll see people eating it with chopsticks &it's actually the best way. Make sure to put you name on the dry erase board when you arrive-to get the next available table.

    The best Chinese in SF and often crowded with locals. Long waits for tables are common, but takeout is always fast. The Dry Fried Wings are a must! – John, Development Services Director

    Besides having the best, most succulent wings known to mankind, accompany them with two other hidden gems: the garlic flash fried string beans and the pork fried rice.

    Famous dry fried chicken wings often mean long waits—come early, or during off hours, to get your saucy, sweet-and-spicy chicken wing fix.

    One of the best restaurants I've eaten at in a long time. I have been going here for about 3-4 yrs. I really like this place a lot. It's fast paced but delicious.

    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."

    I've never had a bad meal here! Definitely get the chicken wings and string beans. The kung pao chicken was probably the best I've had. enjoy!

    The black mushrooms with baby bok chow (a vegan dish, they tell us) at San Tung are worth the wait

    If you're in a hurry, & don't want to share a table & awkwardly stare at your table mates, holler at the dessert shop next door. Same damn menu, no awkward stares. Oh, dry fried chicken wangs, git it!

    Voted one of the best chicken wings in the U.S. by Food and Wine, San Tung’s variety are just the right amount of sweet, spicy and (deliciously) greasy. Read more

    I disagree with last reviewer. Think the dry wings are the best wings I have ever had and I have eaten a lot of wings in my day. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Chinese-Korean / Korean-Chinese - whatever, it's a bunch of familiar flavors jacked up in intensity. The chicken wings are popular and I'm a sucker for the seafood noodle soup.

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

    The fried rice is my favorite in the city: fluffy and moist, not too oily. And of course their dry fried chicken wings 😁🍗🍚

    Wings were awesome, black bean noodles (jjajangmyun) were tasty. The chicken they use in dishes like the black bean chicken is disgustingly over tenderized. Super soggy and just kind of falls apart.

    Great for a la carte grazing and sharing, be sure to order at least a few plates of the “dry fried chicken wings” and thank us later. Read more

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

    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.

    Chicken wings are great, but many other spots in the Sunset have them just as good- and without the line!

    Try the dry fried chicken wings. Fast service once you get a table, but expect a line. I love the kimchi they bring you when you sit down. -Laurine Wickett, Top Chef

    Dried chicken wings and noodles with black bean sauce. I personally prefer it more Korean-style, but this was pretty good and worth a visit

    The chicken is nice and flavorful. A bit too sweet for my liking but overall, it's better than any fried chicken you ever have! However, it's not dry as the name suggests and I still prefer the Korean

    The dry fried chicken wings and the leek dumplings are excellent. Skip the black bean sauce noodles, SO has better.

    For the omnivores, you must get what everyone orders: dry-fried chicken wings. Sauce applied post-frying is finger licking good

    The dry fried chicken wings and string beans are legit. Otherwise, call me crazy, but this place is a tiny bit overrated. You can skip the line and get takeout from next door--20 minute wait.

    This place specializes in an old hybrid Korean/Chinese cuisine and these are the dishes to try: Get the dry fried chicken, spicy seafood noodle soup or black bean sauce noodles.
