Yang's has amazing soup dumplings. They come in plates of 4 and are filled with scalding hot soup. Make sure you let them cool or poke a hole in them before you eat them. Best dumplings in the area.

Watch out for these dumplings my friends, they can scald you if you're not careful while you're greedily digging into one of their fried dumplings. One of the best friend dumplings out there for a really cheap price.

Shanghai is known for their soup dumplings and Yang's has some of the best. We at more than one of their locations on our trip and each were spectacular. speaking to an expat friend that lives there after the fact, they agree they are some of the best dumplings in the city.

Delicious pan fried dumplings with a crispy shell . Pork dumpling were delicious and only 6rmb for 4. I preferred the pork to the shrimp, but I don't think you can go wrong ordering anything there. Watch out for the juicy interior or your clothes might smell like dumpling for a while. Pay at the cashier and take your receipt... More

Oh my goodness!!! We were recommended these dumplings and they proved to be sooooooooo delicious. Cooked in front of you so they are hot and fresh. The first time we ate in at the tables and now we understand why they have a tap and soap for you to wash your hands. The juice just spurts out. After the first... More

We went to Yang's after 2:00 pm to avoid the crowds. Awesome dumplings! Very limited menu, and certainly not fancy. Really more of a fast food type place. But, don't let that stop you- wonderful dumplings! We liked it so much that when we visited Hangzhou to see the lake show, we stopped at a Yangs there too!

It is a cross between the fried dumpling & xiao long bau. The soup in the dumpling is really tasty. I like the prawn dumplings best. Prices very reasonable. However, you nd to collect the dumplings yourself while the waitress will serve you the noodles & drinks. I would rather eat this than at Nanxiang which cost an arm &... More

These dumplings are HUGE! And a little too greasy for me. They always seem to be out of pork dumplings, too. Just not impressed.
