I expected great dumplings from all the high reviews but was discounted. They fried the top of the dumpling and not the bottom of the dumpling done traditionally. It was fried to the point where it is too hard to bite into. The pork and shrimp dumplings I had were all cooked this way. They are not To my taste.... More

Really good value but definitely not best dumplings we ate during our trip. Service is really friendly and they were really helpful as it was our first day in Shanghai and we were quite confused.

This is my favorite Chinese fast food place! Try the dumplings and the fish-ball soup. The food quality and taste is excellent. The prices are a joke - you will be stuffed for $4...They also offer the food to go.

We ate at a couple of Yang’s locations in Shanghai during our time there. Its dumplings are the fried style, rather than the steamed xiao long bao. While I personally prefer steamed, these fried dumplings are also excellent. You can choose between pork, pork/crab, and crab. And, as these things go in China, Yang’s appeared fairly clean and sanitary. For... More

Cheap and awesome dumplings! It's not that they are worth traveling for, but they are good value at the price, so if you're near one, why not by lunch :-)

Had the prawn dumplings and Yang's special dumplings coated in sesame seeds eaten on a cooler and rather wet, Shanghai afternoon - yum and highly recommended. There are pictures to help with ordering and the lady at the counter was very quick to pick up on what I needed to order. If not eating in, one has to order, pay,... More

The dumplings are delicious and i love that you can see they are done with attention to cleanliness because yhey ate prepared behind a glass window where you can watch them being made and then fried. If weather is cool, i absolutrly recommend also ordering some soup. Their soups are delicious as well! I am craving these dumplings so bad... More

We went to 2 locations of Yang's dumplings. This one was located a few blocks north of Peoples Park (supposedly original shop). Ordered (menu has English descriptions under Chinese names), given receipt, walked over and got in line to pick up dumplings. Can also order other things made in the kitchen for which they will give you a number to... More

You'll find it by their pink and white sign. They serve lots of stuff, but their soup dumplings are the star! Ordering was easy, service was fast and the dumplings were delicious. It's my number one rec for Shanghai XLB.

Small hidden local joint amidst the busy side street makes these great dumplings. Fried and cooked with shrimp or pork.... Really great value for the price. Please take into account that the place shuts down a bit after 8pm!!! Don't miss out!
