Excellent food. Had no problem with the service, though most of them don't speak English. Good experience all the times I ate there.

Highlight is Shanghai Dumplings (Xiao longbao) of some different varieties, sealed well and bathed in flavorful broth. You eat them by placing dumpling in soup spoon, "marinating" them in the vinegar/soy and julienned ginger pieces, and biting into the skin, the soup spoon retaining the aforementioned broth. It is the main highlight of this Flushing Chinese restaurant, which accepts cash... More

I've been coming here for years. Are you going to get a Michelin star experience? No, but that's not why you come here. You come here for amazing food on the cheap and of course, soup dumplings. There's lots of reviews here, and please, feel free to read them all. I'll try to add something new to the mix. The... More

Due to a flight cancellation, we were stranded in NYC, so we ended up at Marco LaGuardia Hotel --- and they recommended Joe's Shanghai (just a 2 block walk from the hotel). . The Best Orange Beef we've ever had, and the fried Pork Dumplings were fabulous. If we were hungrier we would definitely have ordered more food, but that's... More

Amazing dumplings (pork)...be sure to poke the dumplings with your chop stix otherwise the soup inside is like lava! A friend gave me the same tip and I'm glad I listened. The only take cash ...no credit cards so keep that in mind Food is good, fresh ...service was attentive yet a little cold...it could have been because we arrived... More

Love going to this restaurant. The food is great. Everything I've had here was delisious. The service needs a lot of work, but for the food, eh, it's their tip. Start with the pork dumplings but I hear get the pork/shrimp dumplings. I'm looking forward to trying them next time and the last time I went to this restaurant, I... More

Just were in NYC and went into Chinatown. Must eat here. Wonderful. Very busy so you will get a number and be seated with others since this is the place to eat. Dumplings are wonderful. Dishes are huge so get several things to share. Loved it!!

After having Chinese food in Hawaii, San Francisco, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur, I was unsure what to expect, but Joe Shanghai was a pleasant surprise. Crab dumplings were very good as was most all of the dishes our group ordered. Got there at 6:30 on a Tuesday and they were able to seat party of 7 with no problem.... More
