“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

This is a small place on Huanghe Street with 5 ladies feverishly making dumplings. Make your order and pay, then take a seat. It will take 15-20minutes for the dumplings to arrive as they steam them upon order but they are worth it. I would recommend going after the lunchtime rush around 2pm. 12-24 dumplings per person is NOT excessive; the dumplings are small, light and have nice thin casings. Then go across the road to Yangs for the fried variety!!

“Best bang for the buck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

I can assure that Jia Jia is not the most delicate place for xiao long bao. Don't expect each xaio long bao is perfectly wrapped, but they certainly taste great! To me this place is even better than Nan Cheong at Yu Garden. Certainly best bang for the buck!

“Must eat - cheap and good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

This used to be where only locals used to go, but nowadays you can find over 50% of diners are tourists. Why, you ask? Because the food is cheap and very good. Go early as the queues are long and sometimes certain selections run out. Do try the pork and crab, as well as pork and shrimp dumplings. Also, be ready to share tables.
