Venue Info

The soft and juicy dumplings at the always-crowded Shandong Restaurant are the stuff of East Bay legend. Packed with savory flavors from components like tender beef and crisp cabbage, the dumplings are handmade with machine-like speed and served to your table with the same velocity, so they're as fresh as humanly possible. You'd be wise to order spicy beef chow mein and the sesame paste noodles too, just be sure to spend the extra buck to have them prepared with the house's hand-pulled noodles.
