“Great snack food but not often”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

It's worth checking these out for the experience of trying deep-fried dumplings, but I was not blown away by them. It's fast food or snack food at most. I prefer steam dumplings myself.

“Value for money”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

Fresh made dumplings, juicy and hot. What can you get with ¥6 for 4 dumplings. Best value as a trial for local snacks.
Also tried the tofu rice noodle soup but disappointed

“Must go. Don't be shy. It is THE comfort food.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I have been a fan since 2005. This is THE ONLY place I would visit every time I am in PVG, rain or shine. This is the best food I had in China for decades. I mean China in general. I pray they keep the operations forever. It would be devastating if they are gone one day. You know, you close the business and retire when you make enough money. Or they sold their business and the original recipe is lost.
These pan fried pork buns are very very affordable, full of favor (magic ingredients), prepare well (Crispy bun bottom , soft bun outside and juicy filling inside), always consistent (no disappointment so far) and convenient (many branches around Shanghai). I even influenced/trained most of my friends and colleagues (Italian, German, French) to start searching for this place for a quick bite.
You will see a line outside the restaurant very often. Be patience. Don't speak Chinese? No problem. You point at the buns onsite and just tell them how many you want. One is about a small fist size. 6 is always a good number :) Don't know where they are? No problem. They have a location map on their website. Ask your Chinese friend to help you out. Or if you are curious enough, browse the website youself. http://www.xysjg.com/
In short. Try it. It's a very very satisfying local experience. I always make this recommendation to my friends, coworkers, business partners, even STRANGERS.

“delicious snack”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Its really tasty and cheap, have never eaten this kind of snack in other part of Asia, it is really juicy inside the pan fried bun, if you have never tried it before, I'd say it is a must try! we also ordered a sour and spicy noodle it was also not bad but not the main course of the restaurant. Be careful when you start eating the pan fried bun it's really hot inside!
