This place has the best dumplings. We have diner here every time we come to New York. This time went twice for the dumplings. The other food on the menu is good also.
I decided to pay a visit to Joe's Shanghai since I have not gone there for a while. I treated my friends to eat there. First of all, I have no patience waiting and we had to share a table among the four of us. It did not meet my expectation. I've tasted better dumplings for a cheaper price located... More
The rest of the food is good and filling and tasty, but you go to Joe's SPECIFICALLY for soup dumplings. In very large groups (between 16-30), we make our annual visit here after the MS Walk downtown. We always order 8-10 orders of soup dumplings, all the kinds, and whatever else. There is plenty of food in the soup dumpling... More
Was served a dish containing a medium to large sized cockroach. Was offered more food on the house (no thanks) along with a ridiculous explanation that "small" bugs are often found in greens. Cockroaches are not "wild" bugs like beetles or grasshoppers which might be found in nature. Watch out for what might be lurking inside your soup dumplings.

Soup dumpling? Whats a soup dumpling? Well, for starts its apparently what everyone goes to Joe's to eat. It was certainly what I went to Joe's to eat and I was NOT disappointed!

Thanks to others for the review. The dumplings were great and not something I would typically order. We had an early dinner avoiding any wait. Great NY experience.

Hot and sour was okay. But the dumplings were awesome! You sit at big round tables with other people, but it's okay, part of the deal.
With so many reviews, your dining experience suffers little surprise : everything was as described by many other happy reviewers. It may not be the perfect place for a romantic dinner, but our whole family liked it.
