We had the pork and the pork with shepherd's purse. Very hard to eat them without squirting out the soup or losing it. But a yummy adventure to try!

8 RMB for 4 dumplings is unbelievably good value especially as they are so tasty!! It always has customers but there is no wait as the dumplings are constantly being made and fresh. They are soup dumplings so open the dumpling a tiny bit and suck the juice, then enjoy!!

Was recommended to try the friend dumplings by a local. Enjoyed the tasty dumplings with side vinegar sauce. Soup was okay. Warm inside and crowded. Everyone sitting at everyone's table. A little uncomfortable situation...too close. I do not know if something else I ate during the day got my stomach sick for a few days...

We took out a couple of boxes. Meat dumplings and spicy lobster dumplings. The menus are in English (limited). There isn't much seating so we did take out. When we ordered we were given a receipt that you need to take to the take out counter but the man didn't tell us anything (ordered in Mandarin). Anyway we got them... More

Amazing dumplings. I can't get enough. If you don't speak Chinese and are worried about ordering it's really easy. You go to the register to pick what you want and to pay. They have a menu with English translations in the counter. You then take your receipt and pick up your dumplings at the window along the street. Let them... More

Found this gem by recommendation from hotel staff. 8 cny for 4 pan fried dumplings, way worth it. The pan fried dumplings are so delicious & juicy. There's pork & vegetarian fillings but we tried the one with pork. Be careful eating it, the dumplings are served hot and the soup inside is usually piping hot. My suggestion would be... More

A bit rough and ready, but incredibly cheap and amazing dumplings, missing them already! Very close to people's square.

Yangs dumplings are lightly fried as opposed to the more conventional steamed dumplings. Your first bite will release the juices from inside, so be careful as it is quite hot. After trying both, I prefer the steamed as they are more delicate to eat. The fried dumplings also tend to be quite filling. I had 6 for breakfast at that... More

They have a reputation of their own, slightly different take on typical Shanghai dumplings as they're lightly fried, making them crispy. If you're a dumpling addict like me, these are a good option to mix it up. Proper local, cheap and cheerful

Staying in People’s Square

Neighborhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
