Williamsburg is certainly a mecca for fun restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques. Among that list is M Shanghai Bistro and Garden. It is a real local place and doesn’t look slick or ‘designer’ but it is worth the trip. Starting with the steamed dumplings is the way to go. Your waitress will delightfully mix a dipping sauce at your table... More

The food portions are like rations when you are at war. But the bill was large. I left the place still feeling hungry. Not to mentio. That before you are even finished the waiter is coming around taking your plate and before you get a ch as to wipe your mouth clean the bill is staring you in the face.... More

It's in Williamsburg but only one stop on the subway from Manhattan. It's nothing like your usual Chinese restaurant but got a funky artsy vibe. Great pre dinner drinks at the well stocked very long bar. Great atmosphere at their communal benching tables. Always in a party mood there. Juicy buns are the most famou dish here but the chicken...

Ok this my my go to place for Chinese juicy uns, or soup dumpling as some people call them. Yes they are excellent here, so are the chicken wing, but the rest of the menu( and I have tried 2x almost EVERYTHING) is just so so. The service brings this place up to 4 stars. If they made everything as... More

After a month in China this summer, we were anxious to compare the food at this Brooklyn restaurant. It was a hike from our place in Manhattan but well worth the trip. The servers were very knowledgeable and pointed us to their favorites on the menu. 4 of us all shared 6 dishes including dim sum and all of us... More

Everything we got tasted like it was made fresh instead of in huge batches. The vegetable fried rice was some of the best I have had and the vegetable dumplings were great as well. For our main meal we got the tofu with black bean sauce and it was delectable. We were sat in the back room where it was... More

I am not so up to date on hipster food but this place seems to fit the bill...the wonton soup was interesting, I have never had seaweed in wonton soup...it was not bad but I won't be ordering it again for 5 bucks at lunch... I ordered the special fried rice for 7.50$ which was well prepared . But I... More
