“Incredibly juicy dumplings.”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

You order at the counter. You get the choice of several meats (pork, shrimp, combo and crab). You get a reciept and then you find yourself a seat. You will have to share a table. That's the norm for these fast-food places here in Shanghai. You wait for 5-10 minutes and then you get these soupy dumplings. These are piping hot when they come out. If you're not careful, you will burn your tounge as the soup inside these dumplings are extremely hot. Bite cautiously! The quality is second to none in Shanghai. Even better than the ones served at the temple.

“Delicious”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Delicious. To enjoy some of the best steaming soup dumplings in the city, get to Jia Jia Tang Bao before they sell out.
Be warned. They usually sell out by one.

“great bang for the buck”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

really delicious xiaolongbao and incredibly cheap. the downside is long lines and no ambiance. the place is tiny, loud and very warm in summer. you probably have to share a table, but at these prices, it's worth it! all the varieties are great, but my personal favorites are the pork and pork with egg.

“most delicious xiao long bao”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Tried the crab pork xiao long bao and the seaweed soup. The seaweed soup is all right. The crab pork bun is very delicious and juicy. Highly recommended.
