I went here with a Chinese friend, who is not from Shanghai but who had been recommended this restaurant for their supposedly very tasty dumplings. Maybe we had very bad luck, but both of us agreed that the food was not at all good tasting and extremely overpriced. There are many positive reviews of this restaurant, so maybe we just... More

I came by almost a decade ago, and truly enjoyed the dumplings. Came by again this week and sat at the second floor. Plates were nonexistent and tables were so dirty. The dumplings came in the most disgusting long (basket) ever. After having 7 dumplings I noticed the gunk between the straw in the long and was appalled. Quality of... More

They offer two types of dumplings : xiaolongbao (dumplings with soup and meat filling) and a dumpling with just crab soup. The xiaolongbao is delicious and tender but I found the latter quite expensive given that there is no meat inside and the skin of the dumpling is quite unedible. Overall, flavours are quite good and I would recommend anyone... More

I visited the restaurant on a Sunday. After ordering, I waited 45 minutes for a small table. The place was extremely crowded. The tables were dirty, and there was no air conditioning. The food was nothing special and definitely not worth the wait in an uncomfortable environment. At least now I can say that I have been there. There is... More

Ah... you are now in Yu Garden. After walking around and feeling tired and hungry, what are you going to do? No doubt there are a few shops for food. What is authentic, so to speak? Come in here. In the first glance, Wow! need to queue just for steamed buns? That would take a long time before your turn.... More

Came here for a Saturday lunch. Ate on the 3rd floor (the part of the floor offering the less expensive menu - there are 2 sides to this floor). Ground floor is takeout, 2nd floor is counter service, 3rd floor is sit down, with 2 sides (the other side has the more extensive and expensive menu). Had 2 orders of... More

I was so look forward to the dumplings here.. But I don't think they are really outstanding...taste good but not that good... N one suggestion! You better eat in shop rather then take away since you don't have to wait if you go upstairs but there is the minimum charge for eating inside the restaurant , as I remember it... More

Well, it happens a lot with a big name like this. The steamed bread is not very fresh and the price sounds unlikely a simple breakfast. RMB20 for a bun...! Wouldn't come back.

Better off getting the buns else where. Tasted like it was full of fillers. The buns I had were dry and some broken. None of the buns I had, had broth in them. The 20-30 min line up with a pushy crowd was not worth it.
