Tried two types - The pork dumplings were just 15RMB for 12 and the crab and pork ones were 30RMB for 12. I liked the crab and pork ones more :) Good Xiao Long Bao, very worth it for the price as well! No queue at 1030am, but when we were leaving the area about 1145am, there was a queue... More

It is a small local bun restaurant. We waited for a while before we could even get into the restaurant. It was totally worth waiting for though! As a Chinese foodie, I would say that I want to go back to wait in the long line again, just for other flavors! Some tips: 1. go earlier. They have a board... More

We were introduced to Jia Jia Tang Bao by locals. Luckily for us they were there early and secured a table. These are most definitely the best of the best and I will definitely make this my must go to place each time I visit Shanghai. The only downside is that it will be extremely difficult to eat dumplings anywhere... More

This review is aimed at all foreigners. Don't be worried about the total lack of signage in anything bar Chinese. There is reason that there is a queue outside the door on a cold cold day in February. The dumplings are excellent. As you enter, an English menu is whipped out. Choose your dumplings (pork or pork Plus eg shrimp)... More

Small little gem. Mostly locals that eat here. We came during dinner and was busy. Table is shared since the place is jam packed. Very tasty crab and pork dumplings. An order consists of 12 dumplings. Good cheap beer at RNB 8. Definitely recommend it. But don't be shy when you come here or think you can have your own... More

I went at 6:00 pm- no wait for table, about a 20 minute wait for the food. I had the mixed crab and pork dumplings as the straight pork was apparently sold out. I'll have to return for the pork dumplings. Definitely worth a visit- but the best dumplings in Shanghai? Debatable. I found it amusing that there is a... More

A bit hard to find, no Roman alpabet name on the outside (just look for the number 90), but rewards are to be had in the form of the most freakishly good xiao long bao ever. No extensive menu, just really good and cheap. The locals seem to approve.

When I think of the best soup dumplings I've ever had, this is it. Better than Din Tai Fung, Joe's Shanghai, Nanxiang in Flushing NY. Way better than Xiao Yang fried dumplings across the street. Hands down the best ratio I've had of soup to flavorful meat. A perfectly juicy bite of thin but chewy skin, essence-of-pork-goodness juice, and perfectly... More

The dumplings are just perfect, and they are very inexpensive. We had a full dinner with dumplings and soup for about 30RMB each. The place is small and the staff don't speak any english. However, there is a foreigners menu in english. Each choice of dumplings consist of 12 dumplings. Not a lot of people there when we visited, propably... More

Been here with my wife after reading all the good reviews. We arrived around 6pm and seated after 15 min wait. Only available crab and pork for 30 yuan x ptn.of 12 dumplings or 99yuan xptn. For pure crab. Fair enough it's one hour before closing and although I could see in the kitchen a big pile of pork with... More
