Delicious!

Their soup dumplings are great! The price is comparable in Flushing. Service is average. Although their food is delicious, the place is always crowded. has a long wait to get a table and it also takes a while for the food to come and for the waiter to come back to you. If you don't like to... read more

Joes Shanghai is an authentic Chinese restaurant filled with vibrant addictive flavors! My favorites dishes, crab and pork buns, scallion pancakes, beef with scallion, shrimp and pork friend rice! Green tea is fabulous and the sliced oranges at the end is an amazing touch!

Grow up in Shanghai, I know soup dumplings and Joe's Shanghai has one of the best. Try the crab soup dumpling, you will not be disappointed.

This is diamond in the Flushing rough. You will thoroughly enjoy the pork soup dumplings. The Kung Pao chicken is one of my favorites. The service is included in your check and is usually attentive. Enjoy!

You can bank on an endless supply of decent dumplings for cheap. If your suffering from a hangover the food here will help you recover quick. It had the lobster it's prepared well for te heafty price, satisfying enough. My only pet peeve is the service, not only are you never checked on regarding your meal but you would be... More

Used to be nice but it has gone down over the years. Uninteresting choices and high prices. My meal included tilapia that smelled and tasted like it was moldy and old. Yucch. Tough to find any parking here also.

The soup dumplings are famous for a reason. They are so, so good. Seven of us ate lunch and it was fast, hot, delicious. Just about the best chinese food you can get.

Although it was a busy spring Sunday and the streets of Chinatown were crowded with tourists, we were seated almost immedIatley, sharing a large table with four other people who were pleasant and friendly. In general. The place was mobbed. Service was prompt courteous and correct. The food was excellent. I never had soup dumplings before and could have eaten... More

Decided to eat something small before we headed to another place for lunch. Restaurant was quite busy. We had to share table which is okay. We order 2 sets of steamed pork dumpling. Upon arrival in the bamboo container very fresh and hot. Delicious indeed. Would have ordered more but eating other things. Even the noodle were worth eating. Hopefully... More
