Second floor - great dumplings but angry service

I think this floor mainly serves pork dumplings and little else. We had a few dumpling servings and some spring rolls. The food is simply to die for and it was brought to us almost instantly. The service is however quite angry in style. I asked my Chinese friend what was happening when I heard... read more

I never tried ground floor because when you travel, time is more precious. We skipped the ground floor. and got to 2nd floor (sort of self serve). We moved on to 3rd floor. I saw a line up at 3rd floor and I asked how long the wait. Then I was instructed to go along to a hidden part of... More

The third floor is much more expensive than the second floor however, there is a menu with different selection of dumplings and other dishes. The second floor is a little rough and ready with only one type of dumpling on offer so is the ground floor takeaway. Be prepared to queue.

Sample xiao long bao from both the ground floor stall and 3rd floor restaurants. Some review said that staff was rude, but from my interaction, i think the chinese are used to work fast, and while we are here on leisure, they on the other side of the table are working, so they work fast. I find the service at... More

I try to stop every trip to sample the dumplings . And are they good !!!! This year the line was far too long ( almost 1 hr) so I went in and got a table ( far less waiting time ) You can also sample the different types inside only . Highly recommend this to anyone .

We weren't patient enough to wait in the line on Ground floor, so we decided to have a sit down lunch in their restaurant on 3/F. Staff was pretty rude when assigning table to guests. A lot of tourists, speaking foreign languages however, staff insist to speak in Mandarin. The environment was not hygiene. Left-over food can easily be found... More

This place is very famous and has a long history. While the taste of the dumpling and the soup is good, the skin is rather thick and so overall the buns are average. There are many better places in Shanghai for Xiaolongbao.

I opted to stand in line for about 20 minutes or so for the take out window. A long line is usually a good sign for delicious food. I have say I was disappointed. The bun or dumpling had a rather thick shell to it, in spite of this more than half of them were broken. A broken shell and... More

This is a great place for Shanghainese style dumplings. Lines at bottom floor for take away should be avoided unless that's what you want/need, go to top floor where there are two sections the 50RMB side and the 80RMB side. there will usually be a short queue of people waiting, but if you want to share a table you can...

Great place for dumplings! Head to the third floor and avoid the queue. Service is fast and polite, dumplings were fresh and you have many options to choose. Recommended!
