“best soup dumplings in the state!”

Shanghai Dumpling Chinese Restaurant
Ranked #12 of 281 Restaurants in Edison
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 March 2017

Shanghai Dumpling is a dimsum style restaurant where you order lots of small plates to share. The food here is extremely authentic to the Shanghai region of China! The pork soup dumplings are the best; the only soup dumplings that could compare to these would probably be from Flushing in Chinatown. The restaurant is quiet cozy and does not accept reservations, so be prepared to wait a while if you come at peak meal time.

This place has packed every inch of floor space with a table and chair. I am no expert on Chinese food, but looking at the faces of the people who pack this place every day, and listen to them chat among each other and I take their word as experts. We squoose ourselves in and kept our elbows down while we ate with the provided chop-sticks. I was gratified to see others choose the same dishes I did. Where I sat, I could see the cooks making up the dumplings. The place was clean, even in those tightly packed corners. The wait staff were polite and able to explain dishes and answer questions.

This is our favorite Shanghai dumpling restaurant. The pork and crabmeat dumpling are delicious. The only comment that I have is that they should have a better system when the place is busy and people are waiting outside. They give out numbers but they don't actually go by it. If they see someone that can fit in the table they sit them. And I know it's a Shanghai restaurant, but I just wish that the waitress would speak English. The waitress kept talking to me in Mandarin which I don't understand even though I kept telling her I don't speak the language.
