Excellent Value for Your Money, and Delicious !

The steam dumpling is fantastic, delicious, and very reasonably priced. This type of value is very rarely in Shanghai now a days. Jia Jia has been around for many many years, and I never had any bad experience there. You get an outstanding meal for the money.

The most famous Xiao Long Bao in Shanghai. Located inside an alley near the People's Square, Jia Jia Tang Bao is a simple, no-frills restaurant with delicious dumplings. The Xiao Long Bao is filled with delicious broth and freshly made upon order. The crab xialongbao is unique and very tasty, although much more expensive than the pork one (about 100-120... More

This is one of the best dumpling places I have ever been to! It is a hole in the wall place (don't let that discouraged you) but the food is excellent and it was only $10 for 36 dumplings! I would recommend the pure pork but they had run out of the shrimp and pork all 3 time we went.... More

We heard so much about this place and was really excited about going there. At first, a queue...which is a good sign. But the high ratio of westerners was alarming for an "authentic" experience. We ordered 3 types of xian long bao and they came fast. The taste was good but really dry and have not got much soup in... More

Different to die for Xiao long paos ...pork, crab. They're just so juicy and flavourful. The wait was not too long and it was definitely worth it.

Reasonable tang bao only not so fantastic. The shop is small and the service is poor. In fact, some of the shop in Malaysia like Dragon-i provide better tang bao.

Hm..It is not bad taste, but it's for fatty taste lover. You don't have to wait there, since most of dumpling restaurant can serve similar dumpling.
