Cashier tried to shortchange my Caucasian friend by 500NT!! My friend isn’t familiar with the bills here so she walked away without knowing she was cheated. I caught it immediately and confronted the cashier of stealing from a foreigner. She didn’t apologize or deny it....More

Food is very average. None of the dishes stands out. Service is good. One thing I don’t understand... less than one minute I want to change a dish, they told me cannot, it is already prepared. Skip !!!

Came to try out the recommended place for Xiao long bao and 煎包, other than the famous Ding Tai Fong. Food is really not bad and the queue is surely way shorter. Selection and service is comparable too.

We ordered three dishes off the menu. Fried rice, prawns and scallops all very good I must say. Service was friendly and efficient. Some English is spoken which we thank them for. The menu is also in English.

This place was filled with tourists but there was no long wait. Unlike Din Tai Fung, it has dishes other than Shanghainese: Xiao Long Bao (steamed pork dumplings) and Sheng Jian Bao (pan-fried pork buns), it has Hong Kong (Cantonese) dim sums, char siu bao...More

As always, Pan-Fried Bun (上海鐵鍋生煎包) has been their juicy/tasty specialty. So as Shanghai Stir-fried Rice Cakes (雪菜肉絲炒糕). Wu-Xi Style Stewed Spareribs (無錫燜子排) caught our attention, scrumptious. Pan-Fried Turnip Cake (蘿蔔絲酥餅) was the one we must have. However, expensive Silver Perch in Casserole (白湯貴妃鍋 $45) was...More

Perhaps not the fairest opinion, but we were here just to try their Xiao Long Bao dumplings, being the main contender of Din Tai Fung's famous dish. Being really honest - the skin of their Xiao Long Baos was considerably thicker, more starchy, and with...More

Had a simple dinner there. The food is good and reasonably priced. It is certainly far less crowded than the nearby Ding Tai Fung - in my mind, a good reason to choose this. The staff are friendly and attentive.

We just walked in. Actually a lot of Taiwanese restaurants don't take reservations especially small ones. Not sure about this one though.... There are a lot of good restaurants in that neighborhood anyway... So don't worry... More
