Description: Hang Zhou Dumpling House was named after its location on Hangzhou S Road. Founded by two brothers surnamed Huang who grew up in the Huaguang Community, the restaurant has remained a family-run business by the Huang brothers and their 80-year-old grandmother.Having dedicated their careers in the restaurant industry, the Huang brothers learned to make noodle dishes 40 years ago from the well-known Shanghai 369 Dim Sum House with an aim to expand the menu at their BBQ bar. The quality of xiaolongbao and other noodle dishes at HangZhou Dumpling House earned rave reviews from customers. The Huang brothers soon turned the BBQ bar into a dumpling house that specialize noodle dishes. Growing up in the old Huaguang Community, home to government veterans, the Huang brothers strive to offer gourmet cuisine at reasonable price that everyone can afford. The restaurant is able to maintain top quality of all dishes while keeping the price down thanks to Grandma Huang, who visits local markets every week and carefully selects fresh ingredients. The insistence on affordable gourmet food maintains the popularity of the restaurant, and its signature dishes, such as the juicy xiaolongbao, crispy shrimp and pork pot stickers, and sweet steamed clams with green squash, keep customers coming back for more.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Xiaolong Tangbao was my first food to eat when i arrived in Taipei.
Gravy was enough and suitable heat.
My wife is a Shanghainess and she taught me how to eat these carefully.
As a foreigner, it was too difficult to eat it for the first time.
But it still tasty and refreshing!

“One of the Bests”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

This restaurant has been around for a long time. It certainly is not as good as Ding-Tai-Fung, but much cheaper and close to the quality of DTF. Almost always packed. you need a number to have a seat. there is another competiter right around the corner. both have been rated as tops in Taipei Xiaolong Bao restairants. serve and setting are OK, typical of Taiwanese small restaurant.
