We had only 2 days by ourselves in Shanghai and we had seen in the lonely planet that on the Huanghe Road (North from the people's park) there was a lot of good and cheap street food. We decided to taste the Yang's fried dumplings and did not regret it at all! we even went twice at each lunch time. 4 pieces for 6 yuan, it is also the firt advertisement you could see when u enter the restaurant! no disappointment, just pay attention when you taste them because there is a lot of steam inside!!! :), the crunchy part below and the softness of the the ball make it really a great culinary experience! we first share one plate with 4 dumplings for 2 people, the day after we were more hungry, we took a plate per person, which might be a bit too much, but in general this is a good meal to keep on going the rest of the afternoon before until the diner.

I just had the dumplings and the crispy bottom and soft dumpling topped with sesame seeds was beyond scrumptious

Easy to order even if you speak no Mandarin. However, had I spoken Mandarin I would not have accepted the fried dumplings that were very overcooked on the bottom. I got a seat upstairs, and the dumplings still tasted good, but the woman at the adjacent table had her face in her soup yelling into her cell phone. Atmosphere: Truckstop in Nevada much better. Would not go back.

This review is for the location on Huanghe Road, a few blocks north of Nanjing Road, but each location seems more or less consistent in quality. Sheng jian baozi are a uniquely Shanghai treat, being little buns filled with a very juicy and flavourful pork mince that are fried and steamed, so that they wind up with a delightfully crispy brown base and a light fluffy top. An order consists of four buns, which in my experience is enough to satisfy a craving, but not enough to qualify as a meal (one reason for going to the Huanghe Road branch is that you can treat these as an appetiser, and then continue to Jiajia across the street for xiaolong bao after). There are a limited number of other items on the menu, but sheng jian are the reason for coming here, so why bother with those other things?

One piece of advice--whatever you do, be VERY careful when biting into these little buns! The interior is filled with a scalding-hot mixture of pork and delicious juice, and the juice seems to have a knack for shooting right up your nose if you bite it injudiciously! A good approach is to poke a bit of a hole in the bun so that you can drain out some of the juice, which you can then drink as a soup, but you do want to have a bit of juice with the bun so that you have the full experience. Also, be sure to grab a good number of serviettes, and maybe bring some wet wipes with you.

Service...well, you don't come to a place like this for service, nor for atmosphere. Let's just say that it is what it is, and does not try to be anything else.

If you're a dumpling fan, there's no better place to try than Yang's. They have updated the interiors since we were here last year to be friendlier to English speakers as this time we were simply able to point at the menu with our selection.

This time around, we kept it simple and went with servings of the sesame and spring-onion scattered dumplings. These are fresh, delicious and moreish - our biggest problem was knowing when to stop.

Staff don't speak a lot of English but due to signage that isn't an issue. Service is quick, by the time we walked from the cash register to the serving window, our dumplings were ready. Other reviews have said that Yang's is for tourists but I don't have a problem with that - the food was good and you can't beat it for value.
