Lots of people raved about this place but I was a little disappointed though. Place was quite small. You place your order and it will be made fresh on the spot. Prices were very reasonable but I have tasted much juicier dumplings elsewhere.

Traditional fresh Shanghai dumplings. The place is small and crowded and gets overrun by tourists I think. The lady at the counter looked fed up. I had other dumplings equally as good in a number of other places. Don’t rush there thinking they are better...More

After reading all the great reviews, I thought I was in for a treat, but when I tasted the first Xiao Long Bao (dumplings), the average taste completely underwhelmed me. The dumplings are average, very average, but the prices are good (30 RMB) when I...More

The place is not easy to find if you can't read Mandarin, so it helps to know that it's opposite to Yang's fried dumplings. I went here for breakfast around 9am and the line was crazy, I waited 40 minutes to be seated and another...More

I'm a regular traveller to Shanghai to due work and it's a must visit every time. My personal favourite is pork with crab or egg York if you're on budget as they are comparable. Do give it a try to the pure crab meat xiaolungbao...More

Their dumplings are the best! Any time I have a layover with enough time I always come here for a meal or two. They still have the same old stained English menu that has to be over 6 years old at this point. It is...More
