Terrific dumplings and a good value in a no-frills kind of environment. We went there three times for breakfast and just could not get enough. When the place had a line out the door during our second visit the dumpling quality was a little lower than usual. It was not terrible but several of them broke and the soup came out. During the two occasions we visited when they were not busy the integrity of the dumplings were great.

Amazing XLB for very cheap prices! 13 yuan for the regular kind and 20 yuan for the "family" one which includes 3 different flovours. Each set has 12 XLB.

The branch in Huang He lu is so busy (around an hour or more wait), so I suggest trying different locations (0 wait in all the other branches that I have been). Beware, the location on Huai Hai Lu closed.

Don't expect great service like Ding Tai Feng. It's a "pay, eat and go" kind of place.

This is about as authentic as xialongbao gets. Don't expect any English or too many options. The day I was there they were only serving crab and meat dumplings or just plain old crab. Each kind was delicious. The atmosphere is New York style, order, wait, sit, stuff your face, and get out. Fast. Worth a visit.

The staff are rude but the food are amazing. Very juicy xiao lung bao and definitely one of the best in Shanghai. Make sure you go there early cause stuff will get sold out. While you're in line, might as well go across to xiao yang to get the pan fried buns cause they're also AMAZEBALLS

If you are looking for amazing xiao long bao, this is the right place. You should come before 1pm because they run out very fast. You will find a long queue but it's worth waiting for. Between you can bring your own drink here.
