We came here at around 9am on Sunday. There was a long queue downstairs. We came to the 2nd floor. There was still one / two empty tables. Surprisingly most are local Chinese. We ordered different dumplings. The price was okay but the quality was not good. The service was nothing. "Din Tai Fung" shall be a better choice.

My family and I dined here for diner and got an assortment of dishes. They were reasonably priced and the flavors of the dishes were good. There wasn't a big wait on the food or large crowds which was good.

Supposedly famous but not something that you need to carve out time for. The restaurant has three levels: level 1 for takeaway only, cheapest price but only the standard xiao long bao is available. Level 2 is a small dining area and same dumplings priced a bit higher. Level 3 has 3 queue options: average spend per pax of 50,... More

XiaoLongBaos or Tangbaos were quite tasty but a pity quality was inconsistent. Some had no soup in them or the skin was a tad too thick. We ordered other dim sums on the menu (because XLBs took at least 20mins) but they were all disappointing. Unless we visit Yu Garden again, we wouldn't make a deliberate trip for this. Another...

Right in the middle of the tourist area of old town so I was wary but hungry. Not sure if it was because I was so hungry but I really enjoyed the food here . It's not too expensive considering it's location

The food was nice but I could recommend that you don't need to order the expensive dim sum menu. You can be satisfied with the normal menu. It was very crowded and waiting so long. If you pay more, your waiting time would be shortened.

This place was so crowded that you walked away the first time we were there. Then we went back there the next day around 11:00 AM before the lunch crowd appeared. There was a usual long line outside. However, there was no crowd going inside. We went to the third floor with decent seating. The food there was good. We... More

First time I tried soup dumplings and they were delicious. I'm a pescatarian and usually soup dumplings only have meat, so I was happy to find a vegetarian version. I would go upstairs to the restaurant and be served rather than wait in the long line. It was a lot faster!

Wanted to try this place as I heard its a branch of the original restaurant to first serve xiaolongbao dumplings. The queue starts from the ground floor all the way up to 3rd floor. I walked up to the head of the queue to see whats up there and the restaurant's usher (who is the same guy in the poster)... More

Very conspicuously positioned in this touristy area. Many food shows will mention this place, but honestly all hype. The best dish in this restaurant is suppose to be the Xiao Long Bao (soup dumpling), but it is at best below average when compared to other places like Din Tai Fung etc. You're better off getting a quick to-go from a...

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the streets that serve as the border to the old city. An aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan (which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists every day, but wandering the streets around the complex reveals more exciting attractions such as food and antique markets. There are also streets lined with shops peddling everyday wares such as Chinese dining ware and craft notions that can be even more enticing to visitors uninterested in the usual tourist fare.
