Our son was craving Happy Wok and we could not find either that or Panda Express near our hotel. We stopped in San Dong Express and were pleasantly surprised with the quality and quantity of the food. The staff will explain the entrees to you, if you have questions. Definitely will recommend this restaurant to others, don't be discouraged by the outside appearance, it is not fancy, but the food is fabulous!

Well priced, owned by the same family for many years and each meal cooked after order is placed, San Dong is plain on the outside and fantastically fresh on the inside. Be adventurous and try a noodle dish on the back of the menu. The owners will help you select something delish and served in a beautiful bowl (big as a dog dish). My favorite is Mongolian beef on the regular menu!

Family owned, friendly staff, mama is often at the register and papa is often your chef. Cooked up right in front of you, with the freshest ingredients! The sauces are different, probably from the owner's Korean background, and it makes a difference. I have been all over the US...east coast, the south, west coast and Canada. This is The Best Chinese food you will ever eat. Be sure to donate to the Korean Children's Fund or make a wish on one of their many Buddha statues!

We had a hankering for some Chinese food while staying in Milwaukee and decided on San Dong. I ordered the San Dong Rice and the sweet and sour chicken, while my wife ordered the hot braised chicken and an order of rice as well. We also ordered two orders of Crab Meat Rangoon.

Let me just say that the fried rice was absolutely delicious and came in HUGE styrofoam containers. The chicken was decent and so was the crab rangoon, but the rice was the real attraction here. It wasn't greasy at all and yet had a ton of flavor to it. The rest of the meal was average or so, but we were craving more of the rice after we were done.

Not a bad place to start if you're near the airport and you have a desire for Chinese. Don't judge this place by the outside. It may be small and broken down, but the food is very good.
