delicious

Stopped at the branch next to the Orient Pearl Tower and got a dumpling plate to go as there was no where to sit. For 18 rmb I got 2 veg, 2 shrimp and 2 pork. Absolutely delicious and I was extra happy as I didn't have to go out of my way to try these.

I was in Beijing, when another traveler I've met in the hostel told me the best dumplings in the world were in Shanghai and close to the hostel where I was going to stay (Shanghai was my next stop in my trip). So, I took note of the name! When I got to Shanghai, everyone in the hostel seemed to... More

Absolutely cannot be missed if you're in Shanghai. Find your nearest branch and make an effort to get there.

When in Shanghai you must visit Yang's Fried Dumplings. You cannot argue with the lines that form with monotonous regularity.

Great dumplings, and very interesting to see them being made onsite. The crowds speak for themselves (but we hardly waited). You can also take the dumplings into other restaurants on the same street to make it a meal.

THE GOOD: Very tasty dumplings Very filling THE NOT SO GOOD: Not much when I tried it I had never not had these types of dumplings, some people prefer these to Xiao Long Bao, but I still prefer XLB. These are very good, the soup was tasty and the meat was very lovely. I loved the crispy bottom, although it... More

We ate here after trying Jia Jia Tang Bao across the street. I've never had this thicker, fried version of a soup dumpling but I enjoyed them. We ordered 2 different dumplings and the beef curry soup. The dumplings were similar to each other and you must pick them up at the window, even if eating inside. The rest of... More

I was quite surprised for such a simple street food restaurant its ranking can be top 30, a very small favela which is always full. We bought take away but it's cold at home, heated if up, I guess the hot liquid was gone so nothing really special in the end.

I spent 20 minutes around to find the shop, quite dissapointed with the quality, not as impressive as I have heard. The "hot liquid" did not come through, since it's the reason in particular people like to try, andi can't take time to stay here because the noises are challenging the heartbeat.
