After trying the fried dumplings over the road and very glad I did. Much better. As other people have said, it’s a small place and you’ll probably have to queue. You pick and pay as you enter the restaurant. As I was in my own,...More

Second visit. Waited for 25 minutes to get a table. The Tang Bao taste authentic with nothing fancy. Recommended to try 2 sets with an option of pure pork and pork with crab should be fulfilling enough.

We went there because of the stunning reviews here at TripAdvisor. We waited for 50 minutes and would wait again :) They also have an English menu. At our next Shanghai visit we will come back, for sure!

Great pork bao, juicy and tasty. Simple place, you line up, you order and pay, sit down and get served. No frills,but you get what you came for and leave happy.

This restaurant is very small and extremely crowded. Soup dumplings are freshly made and steamed on the sport, hence the long queue. However, service is extremely efficient and the table turnaround is very fast. Due to the constant queue there isn’t time for patrons eat...More

The last time I visited was 5 years ago. This time proves that this place has some renovation and has been scrubbed clean (relatively speaking). The ladies making the buns are openly visible to show us how fast they are in the process. This is...More

Foreign cards are usually no good in local restaurants. Do carry some cash with you if you intend to go 'local'. :)
