    The delicious xiao long bao and Shanghainese specialities more than make up for the very grumpy owner.

    Listen to what everyone (and I) is saying, and GET THE SOUP DUMPLINGS. Potstickers are bomb too :).

    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.

    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

    Maybe the best spot in the Richmond for soup dumplings, tea duck, and pea shoots.

    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.

    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.

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