I eat here regularly. My most recent visit was 2/1/2015. This restaurant specializes in Shanghai soup dumplings. Some people think Din Tai Feng makes the best dumplings, and it's true they make a fine product. I've eaten there in 6 different cities in 4 different countries, and it's good...but that's another review. Jia Jia Tang Bao makes consistently excellent dumplings.... More

Laugh not! You might,too! I love so much about the cuisine in Shanghai, I really do. But these juicy and meaty xiaolongbao are my muse here, I swear! I just can't get enough of them. And i'll suggest hitting Jia Jia Tang Bao(or Fu Chun) whenever I thing someone is due for something to eat. The setting even suggests "hit... More

This was my second time to Jia Jia Tang Bao (forgot to write a review after the first). Both times were delicious! Not only are the soup dumplings reasonably priced, but they are yum! The first time I went, we went for breakfast and there was no line. The second time we went, we went for an early dinner (around... More

I've tried 4 seasons XLB and I must say that this is on par with the level of how thin the dumpling wrapper and almost as good as the flavor of the meat. It's also great that you get 12 pieces of dumplings for 13 rmb as oppose to 4 pieces for 60 rmb and 4 seasons. Their other flavored... More

As the soup dumplings are made to order, it does involve a bit of a wait. We went at 4pm and didn't have to wait. If there is no line outside, the protocol is to order and pay first at the cashier's by the door, then go in and grab whichever table/chair that is available. We only ordered one steamer... More

I stayed in Shanghai from May to August 2014 and of all that I have tried, this place indeed has the best xiao long bao!

I will never get bored of the xiao long bao here. Authentic and that's the way xiao long bao supposed to be. The skin is thin, meat is juicy and tasteful. The mix of crab and pork is a must try coz not even Din Tai Fung is as good as this, in my opinion. A very humble shop and... More

My wife and I make a point to stop by every time we are in Shanghai for the last 10 years (4 trips this far). Although we've also tried other places in the city, Jia Jia Tang Bao still beats them all regardless of the price. The texture of the wrap, the juicyness, the flavor of the meat, whether you...
