Their dry fried chicken is hands down one of the best fried chicken I've ever had. I was craving their chicken wings and luckily some of my friend were too. We had to wait almost an hour but it was worth it. Right when we sat down, we immediately ordered. We ordered sautéed green beans, chicken fried rice, two orders of dry fried chicken and black bean sauce noodles. This was shared amongst 4 people. We finished majority of the food. As always we were  satisfied and cannot wait to come back for the dry fried chicken !
My housemate brought our group here, saying this place has a reputation for having the best Chinese food in SF. I think this is a bit overrated. The place is a bit small for all the people waiting. There's a small entrance with only a few seats for guests to wait. It was pretty cold the night we went so everyone was huddled in, to the point people were hovering over/ bumping into other people's tables while they ate. You have to write your name on the wall to list how many people are in your group, and they call out your name once they have a table ready for you. It took us almost 2 hours to get a table and some of customers in the restaurant were cramped and snippy at other customers. Honestly, the food there wasn't worth the experience. The chicken was sweet and extra crispy--which could be nice if I didn't have to wait so long. I've had better chicken elsewhere though. The stirfry tofu and vegatables was good but pretty standard. The green beans were perfectly spiced and crispy. The black sauce noodles was also ok. Not sure if it's because it's not my preferred flavor profile.
Best fried chicken I've had... in probably all time. The sauce is quite good, but what really sets it apart is the lightness. You'd never think "fried" and "light" would be used to describe the same dish, but San Tung pulls it off. How? I have no idea. We also had the black bean sauce noodles - good, but the chicken was really the star here. Definitely worth a try, at least once. Came here with my boyfriend on a Sunday afternoon and didn't have to wait long - maybe 20 minutes. The place was packed, as I expected. Service was quick, and we were in and out in a jiffy. Close to Golden Gate Park, which is a great place to burn those calories off afterwards.
