The Real Deal for Soup Dumplings in NYC

Visited Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao on a Sunday afternoon. Had heard that the lines are usually out the door, although we were seated right away, probably because we were in between lunch and dinner. After the meal, I can understand why this restaurant has those long lines. The menu is fairly small... read more

If you arrive and the line is out the door. Politely excuse yourself and walk to the front of the line to the cashier for a number. The line was long when we arrived but moved quickly. And boy, was it worth the wait. The restaurant is larger than it appears. Love the Xiao long bao (soup dumplings). They are... More

Enjoyed pork soup dumplings , greasy scallion pancake with beef and seafood udon noodles. Was surprised to see a "C" health code rating and quite disappointed, too.

I was prepared to be underwhelmed by the soup dumplings at Nanxiang Xiao Long Bao on Prince Street, Flushing. Luckily, I was not. We did not have to wait long for a table on a November Saturday afternoon, the service was friendly and patient, and the SLB were as good as I have had anywhere else in the USA. Soft,... More

I ate here because of the excellent TA reviews. I selected three items that other reviewers had recommended - dumplings, scallion pancakes, and udon noodles. The food was fresh but boring. The pancakes in particular was tasteless and doughy. I prefer Chinese food that is spicy and flavorful. This was neither.

We waited 20 minutes for a table. The food was just "ok", I've had better especially in NYC. If you have food allergies- make sure you ask what is in things, they had little shrimps in the Wonton soup (but it wasn't listed on the menu). The seafood noodle soup was bland, and the noodles weren't heated through- they were... More

A rare authentic treat of Shanghai cuisine in New York! Many New Yorker with Chinese roots go there. It is a great place for family and big parties. Try the pan seared dumplings, Chinese meat buns, soup dumplings, dim sum, scallion pancake and stir fried rice cake. Dishes can be on the greasy side sometimes and the wait can be... More

Great food and reasonably priced! Had pan fried pork dumplings, shanghai pan fried udon, and steamed pork dumplings. Although they were out of the steamed vegetable dumplings which we wanted and the waitress avoided us at then end when were waiting for our $19 change.

The restaurant is known for its Xiao long bao and it does not disappoint. These treasure filled dumplings are served piping hot with the soup sloshing in the dumping. The soup and filling are extremely flavorful and the wrapper while thin could be a bit thinner to get my vote as the best but it is a very good effort.... More

This is our daughter's favorite restaurant and when we visited NYC, our hotel was a walk away, and it quickly became a family favorite. We love the xiao long bao best of all and all the other dimsum favorites like dumplings and meat buns. A suggestion though, we hope the restaurant will offer Shanghai style xiao long bao which are...
