People tend to check in during these times:
frying of the soup dumplings is a thing.
Famous for dry fried chicken wings
The dumplings and garlic wings are amazing.
Dumplings were great, as were the chicken wings and the hot & sour soup. When the menu says spicy, it is! Don't go for the great decor or fancy service, go for great affordable food.
The best xiao long bao in SF. Also the chicken wings are great, the hand cut pan fried noodles have an amazing chewy texture, and the salt and pepper pork knuckle is both tender and crispy.
great food is worth the sometimes unfriendly/uninterested customer service
Soup dumplings are great.
Ordered their chicken chow mein for lunch. Noodles and veg were excellent...cooked to a perfect doneness, chicken browned n tender. Simple dish maybe, but each ing. executed masterfully makes special
Wow! The food is awesome. And they have a high chair!
Xiao long bao's and spicy chicken wings! Other items are meh. Cash only. Beware of grumpy lady owner, may not want to dine here if already in a bad mood! :D
Maybe the best spot in the Richmond for soup dumplings, tea duck, and pea shoots.
shanghai style noodle soup with hand cut noodles.
Tasty, but all the sauces have tons of salt and sugar. So, not something to eat very often.
Probably the best xiao long bao in sf (at least better than Shanghai Dumpling King)
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.
For 2 people, order: Soup dumplings, side of spicy string/green beans, and hand cut noodles w shrimp. Also think its byob.
Spicy won tons with garlic are on the "secret menu"
As mentioned, the dry fried chicken wings are spectacular as is the delicious spicy eggplant with shrimp and chicken (pictured).
Best hidden tea pot dumpling in town if you're lucky enough to find one in there!
Check your teapot, sometimes they sneak an extra dumpling in there
the salt and pepper pork knuckle is friggin incredible. super crispy on the outside and plenty of meat for 5 ppl. served with fried chopped basil squee
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.
XLB here is better than shanghai dumpling king.
Dry fry chicken wings are loaded with a thick garlic pepper sauce and still stay crunchy. Must order.
Salty soy milk for weekend brunch is divine
Yummy potstickers and noodles
Excellent xiaolongbao. Takeout available. Cash only.
XLB ftw. Cash only.
Try the dry fried prawns (sweet/spicy heaven) and the stringbeans- soooo delish.
Come here if you discover Shanghai dumpling king is closed until March 23
