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...

Great Xiao Long Bao! My wife and I are not experts, but we loved the food, and their prices were also pretty cheap. Just across the street is Yang's dumplings, so we had an excellent dumpling lunch that day!

A very small restaurant in Shanghai that everyone must need to try. The best Xiao Long Bao in Shanghai.

The queue is always there. Shop is small but they have a good number of workers to ensure customers are not left hanging for long time. The 'Tang Bao' / 'Xiao Long Bao' are served in various flavors. Tried all and loved them!

We selected this place from the lonely planet and at first we were quite disappointed when we looked at the place form the outside, as not what you would expect for your first dinner out in shanghai. The place is small and you seat in plastic chairs and small tables overlooking the kitchen on one side and the busy Huanghe... More

Echo what many have said...very good hole in the wall. Go early for greatest selection. We went at noon, after looking and looking for the place, joined the lineup and had 3 choices - ordered the pork/crab meat (27 yuan for 12) and pork/egg yolk (20 yuan). Other choice was pure crab meat (99 yuan). Large bottle Tsingtao for 5... More

If it is soup dumplings you want. Then this is the place! Just go early in the day and wait in line! Once they are sold out, they are done! Okay if you are finicky and do not like sit with others at a shared table you should pass. But if you can look past the environment you will have... More

This was second visit. We lined up behind a dozen other hungry fools and waited and we felt a sense of victory when we arrived at the Cashier. This place is supposed to have Xiao Long Bao ranging in price from I think about RMB 13 to RMB 99 for a basket. The lady showed us a menu and hid... More
