    Dry fry chicken wings are loaded with a thick garlic pepper sauce and still stay crunchy. Must order.

    Ask for the Chinese menu to get the real authentic stuff. Decor sucks but food is spectacular (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Xiao Long Bao and Kung Pao are the best I've had in SF. Everything tastes like it came straight from Shanghai. For a person who used to live in Shanghai for 7 years, this is my favorite place.

    Dried fried chicken is HELLA good. I think it's better than San Tung's. (my opinion)

    You definitely have to get pickled vegetables with soy bean and shredded pork soup with hand cut noodles. So good and worth it.
