I have had better soup dumplings elsewhere, but Nan Xiang's probably one of the best in the area. I think what separates this place from other restaurants in Flushing is the authentic Taiwanese breakfast items served here-- salty soybean milk, cruller wrapped with baked sesame dough, rice balls, etc. Those are probably as close as you can get to what...

This place is nothing fancy as far as decor goes but they have the best pork soup dumplings, scallion pancakes and noodles! It is a true hidden gem in Queens! #authentic #non-touristy #off-the-beaten-path #GoodEats

One of my favorite for soup dumplings! And I've been to dozens in search of the best. Authentic and unpretentious. Also love their Seafood crispy noodle. Just the right texture and flavor. Service is so-so, some of these people seem fresh off the boat and still have to learn to smile (or look our way in case we need more... More

Came 9am. Less congested parking. No wait for tables. XLB and breakfast offerings good with acceptable environs (nothing fancy).

Love their xiao long bao, and hope they don't lower their quality with the influx of tourists. Wait time still sucks while ordering and trying to get the attention of the waiters.

Little underwhelmed by all the good reviews. Was there for breakfast on a weekday, not so busy. The soy milk, crispy dough and crab bao was pretty good, not as amazing as I was hoping for, we had better in the west coast and in Asia. The Shanghai Shao Mai was just strange in texture and taste, not getting that... More

The food was great and you can tell why everyone goes to eat there. You will be happy with anything you order from the menu. This was the first of many places we ate in Flushing and it was a great place to start.

We met our friends here for a local taste of the real nyc - their recommendation and we really enjoyed it. Soup dumplings were delicious and everything else was good. Service was ok, they kinda forgot about us but what more do you expect when you have tourists at the table?!

If you are craving soupy Chinese pork or crabmeat dumplings this is your place. I think their dumplings are even better than famous Joe Shanghai's. If you are not a fan of soupy dumplings they have plenty of other dumpling varieties including pure veg ones. But this place is so much more than just dumplings, their small menu is packed... More

This Shanghainese Restaurant was in the heart of Chinatown. Quite busy but the food is average. Price is reasonable. Service is no nonsense type.
