We dined on the 3rd floor, ordering an assortment of dishes, and all of them were just average; we've had better back home in our Canadian city. A bit pricey, as to be expected, at 260 RMB for the three of us -- and it definitely wasn't a filling meal, either. (The only dish that isn't pictured was the stinky... More

Not knowing much about this place, we went to the 3rd floor as there was no room on the first two. This was a good choice because we got to sit down and order from the menu (which was also in English). Their signature xiaolongbao is absolutely divine! They were better than the dumplings at Din Tai Fung (and cheaper).... More

Overpriced. RMB 50 for a big crab soup dumpling. Personally think that it’s just another tourist gimmick, taste wise is still acceptable.

This place was very busy probably because the food was very good we stopped here to have a quick lunch and enjoyed it after a long walk watching this part of town

Go to the 3rd floor right away- it has nicer setting. Service is good. We did enjoy the dumplings, egg soup, river eel and some other local specialties. Truly enjoyed it. For a foreigner it did not seem like too touristy place. Go for dumplings!

Visited the beautiful Yu Yuan Gardens and had to get something to eat for lunch. Saw many people queueing up at ground floor & thought this must be good. Finally it came in boxes of 12's and it was lousy in my opinion vs Din Tai Fungs' or Jia Jia Outlet. The dough was rough, thick and tasted as if... More

For the best food and experience DO NOT get the dumplings on the first or second floor. Go to the third floor and get a table on the left side. The service will be very good, the food quality and selection will be much much better. Also for the best dumplings get the signature Crab Roe Dumplings (not to be... More

Everyone serve the same dumplings but this place has a bridge to the restaurant so it looks nicer. They have second and third floor but the difference is not obvious at the beginning. Anyway we just took from the second floor. It's like fast food - everyone orders the dumpling and a drink and then scramble to find a seat... More

I opted for the 12 crab and pork dumpling option which cost me 22RMB, which is extremely good value for dumplings that were so well cooked and seasoned. There is a queue to be served here, and it is blindingly obvious why – these are amazing. However, 12 dumplings were simply too much for me and I gave about half... More

I really enjoyed my takeaway steam buns. I managed to get there when there was not much of a line, which is supposedly rare. Really no choice at the takeaway counter. You will get what is available. But what got was really fresh and really tasty. I'm no expert on steamed buns (who is?). But I thought they were yummy!

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.
