Xiao long paos that you want to keep popping into your mouth

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.

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

One of the must eat item when in Shanghai. One of best soup dumpling with reasonable price and friendly service as well. Quite popular to overseas visitors too.

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.

It was so tasty! Leaves din tai fung for dead, and its dirt cheap. The people there are really good with people who don't speak mandarin, and I wish I was more adventurous and tried the blood soup. I had the pork dumplings and bought the extra sauce, which was ginger, and it was sensational! I could eat there every... More

We love xiao long bao. This was our first eating spot when we arrived in Shanghai. First, you can't beat the price, coming from the states, this is dirt cheap! We were lucky, no line at the door, we sat down right away.There were 4 of us, we ordered 3 different fillings, pork, shrimp, and crab. They were good, but... More

Wow! This is absolutely good dumpling restaurant. The price is affordable. The flavour is there and has a thin dough. We found it year 2012 and came back again and again when we are in Shanghai! Always busy and crowded. But worth waiting.

Being a big fan of the Xiao Long Bao I tried it at a number of places during our 3 days in Shanghai. The places we tried prior to Jia Jia Tang Bao were huge disappointments. I thought being the home of XLB that the XLB in Shanghai would be abundant and amazing. That is not the case at all.... More

Steamed dumpling filled with broth. This hole in the wall is the place to get this Shanghainese specialty. Be prepared to wait to be seated. Nobody speaks English in this place, so ask your concierge to write down what you would like to order. The choices for the filling are pork, chicken or crab and pork combo. I recommend the... More
