Excellent for a snack or small meal

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.

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.

Years ago when I first came to shanghai, my most memorable local dumpling was Mr. Young's shop in wujiang street. However tried out again here, it wasn't as great as the first, less liquid inside and less tasty, especially the legendary queue was used to happen in wujiang is gone.

DIRECTIONS: If you are walking east on Nanjing pedestrian street, take a right turn (north) on Huanghe road and go further ~2 blocks. It's on the left sidewalk and there's a pink awning. These were fantastic, super cheap, great taste and very filling. You can't go wrong with them. We went back several times.

Well worth the time to find & any time you have to wait during their peak hours is well worth it. The dumplings are completely fresh, flavorful & so delicious

Just came back from breakfast at Yangs. 8 Pork Shen Jian Bao, (I don't care for their new shrimp version), and a giant bowl of hot and sour soup with noodles. An out of this world breakfast for a whopping $3.45US!! Great food, better value!
