My wife and I enjoy visiting her old home neighborhood in Flushing Queens. As you may know Flushing has become the new Chinatown in the city. Joe's is one of the first and famous for their dumplings. They have added a branch in old Chinatown and one in the theater district. I found they also have two locations now in... More

Food was fine but service was somewhat underwhelming, despite the many staff and the speedy arrival of our order. A much talked about restaurant which was very busy, but I've eaten better food and paid less money in the area.

It was very good food. We thought the many waiters were much more interested in the TV than us though.

Great ambience and food! When visiting NYC do not forget about China Town. The dumplings served at Joe's Shangai were delicious.

This restaurant is right next to the Chinatown of Flushing, very authentic and tasteful Shanghai food, especially the steamed dumplings, very cheap price, it is very crowded that's why service is just so so, still worth a try!

We didn't try the soup dumpings - though the waiter tried to "upsell" us when we ordered other food. Good selection, fast and tasty food, though it was packed and felt a bit rushed.

I was really looking forward to eating here. I ordered the fried pork dumplings and moo shu pork. I asked for a fork which I never got. I found the insides of the dumpling flavorful enough but felt the dough was far to thick. The moo shu was flavorless. The service was terrible! I was pretty much ignored and that... More

I live very near this restaurant, so we have walked over and eaten here several times. The weekends are the absolute worst time to go. There is a line of mainly tourists and Manhattanites that can extend half a block! The soup dumplings are so tasty, they are made of pork and crab (I believe they also sell just pork).... More

This restaurant is known for their soup dumplings I first heard about it when I read in NY Magazine that their soup dumplings were better than sex. They also have locations in Chinatown. We go there every chance we get.
