My wife and I popped in to the Yang's Dumplings located on YuYuan Road near the Metro train station. You can't miss the bright pink signs if you are nearby. After paying at the front counter, we waiting patiently as we watched the cook fix up a fresh pan of dumplings. Now, these are not your typical pans. The large... More

Popular with locals and foreigners alike, you can't go wrong with any of Yangs dumplings. Drop in to one of the many locations for lunch or an afternoon snack. A must-try when visiting Shanghai.

We love Yangs!! The best fried sheng jian bao anywhere in the world. Now serving a shrimp version, (we love the pork better), but still. Phenomenal, and cheap!!

As the name suggest's fry dumplings. however, the dumplings here were soaked in oil. We got out feeling sick in our stomach with the amount of oil in the food. Undoubtedly, a cheap place to eat with a lot of patrons! However, this place didnt do the trick for us.

i'm not a big fan of xiao long bao but i love shen jian baos and these are amazing. I have one near my house and I go there all the time. The shrimp dumplings are good too but I can't vouch for anything else since I haven't even it. Its fried and has a lot of soup so if... More

Although we were not entirely clear how to order at first, we concluded the long line outside the tiny restaurant must be indicative of good food, so we gave it a shot. We could not be happier that we did. It was pretty easy to figure out how to order, and the dumplings and soup were delicious and incredibly inexpensive.... More

This is a fast-food like chain, famous for its dumplings- for good reason. They offer the soup-dumplings which are fries from one side. These are really good and you can see how they make them! The rest of the menu though is below average. I had a rice-noodle soup which was actually quite bad. But then again, they specialize in... More

Inexpensive, fast food, but are they ever delicious! Order and pay, wait in line to pick them up. Take away. Be SURE to to let the steam out or you will scald your mouth. Once is never enough.

... the only thing that bothers me is that not much more street food style of places can join the high ranks of Yangs's fried dumpling. In the second of mall above the subway station of Line 2 it has for good reason in peak hours a waiting line and is densely packed with patron, co -seating is normal. For... More
