Taste of Shanghai

Stepping into this restaurant in Auckland transport you straight into Shanghai with its ambience and the pleasant smell of the food.Good affordable food but wish they mopped their tiled floors.

Basic decor, but fabulous dumplings. A Chinese friend of ours recommended that we come to try 'the best Xialongbao dumplings in Auckland'. We were not disappointed.

One of the only places in Auckland for Xaio Long Bao. (Steam pork dumplings with soup inside). Were very yummy. Decor is basic but if you are used to the sort of places locals eat at then very clean. Had an A health dept rating.

We really enjoyed the cumin lamb and the eggplant three ways. The staff spoke very little English, but were helpful and very friendly. A great fun night

These are the 'soup dumplings'--handmade pork dumplings with a spoonful of broth inside the dumpling. They're all made from scratch, no pre-purchased and re-heated store-bought dumplings here! The dumplings are impressive: great meat-to-dough ratio, steamed to perfection, hot and... More

This restaurant came well recommended by the friend of a friend with a reputation for knowing his dumplings. The steamed pork buns were great, but the dumplings were decidedly doughy! Service was fine and the restaurant very clean. The price was reasonable.

Food quality is good (averagely). Service is OK. Only not satisfy on the room space.
