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!

I never tire of these dumplings whenever I come to Shanghai. Forget the restaurants themselves, the service (both below average), and the long queues, the dumplings are some of the tastiest street food I have ever tried. They are large balls of happiness: crunchy dumpling skin on one side, soft and sprinkled with sesame seeds on the other. Smother it... More

We visited the Yangs in Pudong, which is right next to the Aquarium...... Read good reviews about this place, and I must say the dumplings are delicious. They seem to churn our thousands of them, and there is good reason that this place is so popular. Definitely a must try if you are in Shanghai.... Tip : wait a little... More

OMG these are delicious! Still thinking about them! We worked out how to eat them at the end. For beginners use your soup spoon and chop sticks! You won't be disappointed.
