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.

Excellent spot on the bustling side street Huanghe next to People's Square! Very authentic dumplings and you can watch the assembly line of workers cooking hard! My boyfriend lives around the corner from this place, so we go several times every week. 4 big soup dumplings for 6RMB - that's hard to beat. We bring all of our visitors here.... More

You're going here for the chinese style fried pork dumplings!! They are really good, and until now the taste of it is still unforgettable. The meat is really juicy, and filled with soup and wrapped with a cripsy dough outside. I will never know how to find this restaurant until my friends highly recommended me to go. They have many...

On our 2013 Christmas vacation in Shanghai we accidentaly came accross this place on our way back to our hotel Fish Inn Bund. We were hesistant to try their dumplings because of the very cheap price. We might regret the taste, that was on our mind. But when we tasted the first dumpling a warm tasty broth burst into our... More

This place is recommended not only by fellow Tripadvisor reviewers but by Lonely Planet also, so we decided to check it out. Just a hundred meters from People Square it was easy to find. Right after spending first half of the day exploring Oriental Pearl Tower and Shanghai History Museum we got there by metro line 2 (second stop) and... More

I accidentally ended up at Yang's Fried Dumplings, only realizing now they are so highly rated on TripAdvisor. 4 dumplings for ¥6, best deal around! I had 8 of them and a soup: total price ¥22 And it was way too much food for me to it. The dumplings were juicy with warm broth, the bottom crispy and the meat... More
