We got to the restaurant around 11:30 AM and waited about 30 minutes to get inside. We ordered (off the English menu) 3 orders of pork dumplings and were seated at a shared table right away, as they'll only take your order when a seat is available. While waiting for our food, we looked around and thought we've ordered way... More

I was there around lunch time and waited in line for maybe 20 minutes. Based on the reviews I really expected to taste good,rather I was very disappointed. It didn't taste fresh at all.

This place offers delicious soup dumplings. They close when they run out, so go early. They are small and you'll likely have to share a table (we did, both times). If they can tell you don't speak Chinese, they'll pull out an English menu. Be prepared to order fast if there's a line behind you. We had both the pork... More

We visited this restaurant today, at about 4.00pm. Although busy it had no queue at that hour so it was less pressured. I was very grateful for the earlier reviews that did a step by step of the ordering and seating arrangements - that was most helpful. We had the pork and crab dumplings and the crab dumplings. Both were... More

They really do serve some of the best bao in the world. You can see them making them right there in this little hole in the wall. Nobody speaks English, but they do have an English menu tucked away if you just look stupid for a while. Then its order, pay and find a space to sit (if you can)... More

Executive summary Pros - Fresh dumplings, very cheap, tasty food, quick service Cons - Always a queue Note the location on tripadvisor map is incorrect. It is on Huanghe Lu number 90. Closest station being XinZha Rd (exit 5) or People's square (exit 8). Top tip - There is a Yang's fried dumpling opposite this shop - number 97 on... More

This is a very local restaurant. You pay first and then to grab a seat yourself and the staff will bring you your food. The xiaolongbao skin is very thin and the fillings are very tasty and juicy. Whats more is the price is very reasonable - 27rmb for a dozen of crab & pork xiaolongbao.

For dinner we had the pork and crab combination soup dumplings with the ginger. They were the only type of dumplings you could choose at dinner and they came out piping hot. Very delicious soup dumplings but you have to be careful when eating so you don't get soup on other people. Only eight tables, with two small ones by... More
