Tried the pork soup dumplings and crab& pork. Next time I'll just eat like 100 pork. Also tried the pan fried noodles but everyone was getting the pan fried udon. I'll try that next time. There will be a next time. Just go!

Yes the soup dumplings are delicious. No need to go to Chinatown; these are as good as anywhere I've been. The authenticity of this restaurant can't be denied, that's a plus and a minus. The plus side is if you know and like shanghai cuisine...More
