Some colleagues and I had walked the Bund Area, and wandered across the street for shopping and to see the famous Garden. This restaurant has been in business since 1900 - don’t let that fool you, it is very modern & clean inside, and promptly...More

We had heard about Nanxiang from a few people but were warned it was touristy. Got there mid afternoon so it wasn't too busy. The huge soup dumpling was one of their main gimmicks, but we obviously had to get it. The soup dumplings were...More

Went there early 11:30 to avoid the anticipated long line (queue). There was already a line when we arrived. The line moved fast and was seated within 15 minutes on the second floor. Ordered from a paper menu that they had already passed out to...More

This place has had many mixed reviews online, but I really enjoyed it. Be prepared to wait for both takeaway (at front) and seat in the upstairs restaurant. I waited around 45mins, but the staff were very accommodating and helpful in getting everyone seen and...More

We had to queue for 10 min to get in and were shown a table at the ground floor. Dumplings were ok but not worth the fuss really. We learned the food may be a bit better at the higher floors but couldn't check.

Dropped by Nanxiang while travelling in Shanghai for three days. It is located inside Yuwon Garden so it tends to get packed with people especially on weekend. Knowing there are three different caliber of dumplings in the restaurant, I immediately headed to the highest floor...More
