In a world where "two lettered" Chinese restaurants have everyone fooled, Bund is an extreme departure. That deeply fried, wildly mediocre flavor you are tasting at those "other" spots is not Chinese, but rather ratings and reviews fooling your psyche. Ok, enough smack talk. Hands down, Bund is the best spot for fresh, tasty Shanghai cuisine in SF. Though their menu offers a collection of "americanized" Chinese favorites, there is so much more to enjoy if you are feeling adventurous. Keep in mind most of their food is traditional Shanghai fare and that the flavors at times may be strange but are so very satisfying. Some menu highlights I have enjoyed in no particular order: Xiaolongbao (soup dumplings) Bok Choi w/bean curd noodles, Mongolian Beef, Mapo Tofu and their crispy duck is incredible. Pretty much if you ask Edward, who is the enigmatic, charismatic owner, for something special, chances are you will get a culinary creation. I spent some time speaking with him one night and his take on why Chinese food in Chinatown has become so uninspired. He explained that his restaurant differs from other because he hired a classically trained chef to run his kitchen and along with his sister who also cooks up old family recipes, they have created a recipe for incredible food. He went on about how so many restaurants hire whoever they can to cook in their kitchen and most of these folks do not even have food service backgrounds. In China they may have been nurses, teachers or police officers and become "chefs" overnight. This place can be a little challenging to find and may not have the most inviting interior but I promise the fruits of your search will be worth it. There are a lot of yellow awnings on Jackson Street but there is only one Bund. Happy Eating.

Food not good at all. We ordered a dish of shrimps. They were dry and overcooked. Told the waitress, she just said..cooked from frozen shrimps, can't be better. BS.

Boring dumplings and I was pretty much ignored after food arrived; on a slow night too. The tea was good though

Absolutely the best Chinese food we had in our lives. Bursting with flavor. Mongolian beef and shrimp and snow peas were awesome, as was hot and sour soup. Eat here!!!
