Tried all 3 types of dumplings - we liked the pork ones the most. A lot of soup in the dumpling, and yet the skin was not overly thick and fried to a nice crisp. Arrived about 1030 to 11 in the morning and there was no crowd :) Come to this brunch coz it's opposite Jia Jia Tang Bao... More

Went at 9pm after a massage and the dumplings were still piping hot and fresh. Was relatively empty which was a bonus. Loved the pork and the vegetable ones. Wasn't crazy about the prawn. Soup was not great. But dumplings made up for it. No English was spoken but the menu has English and pictures.

You come here for the dumplings, the soup is decent too. The decor is not meant for those to linger. There is often a lineup and it is often hard to find seating. You pick up your dumplings from the window where you can watch the cooks prepare this amazing meal, and perhaps avoid seeing how much oil they use.... More

This is an extremely popular fried dumplings joint on one of the most well-trodden tourist-friendly 'food streets' in the city. It's a big chain too, so you know what to expect. The dumplings are extremely juicy, I actually managed to scald the INSIDE of my nose when the juice of one badboy spurted out at an awkward angle which was... More

It is not among my favorite places here in SH, but is good for a quick lunch. They do not speak english and the service is not really helpful, but you can menage somehow. The dumplings are good, also if I prefer the steamed type. The choise is limited on what they have available at that moment, but generally there... More

Right across from Jia Jia this is the fried dumpling with soup. Tasty but a little heavier and oily than the normal XLB (expected). Wasn't the best Sheng Jian Bao I have had but a good pit stop after Jia Jia

a restaurant business that you can see many stores over Shanghai The interior environment is trendy that is different as the traditional restaurant. Fried Dumplings - different from Xia Long Bao. Still very juicy in the dumplings and better to be careful when eat because it is too hot! However, personally I like steamed dumplings more as Fried dumplings are... More

Shengjian bao are the next gen soup dumplings, somehow fried but loaded with soup. The traditional dumplings are delicious, but the shrimp dumplings are out of this world. Accompany the dumplings with soup (several noodle options, and a very spicy hot & sour soup). Queue in front of the register, order from the menu (there is an English version), pay,... More

There are many different styles of dumplings you can try, but if you're looking for soup dumplings with a bit thicker of dough than Din Tai Fung and a crispy bottom, you can't beat Yang's. I don't think I'll ever be able to eat dumplings in the US ever again and even better it's only 8 RMB for 4 dumplings... More

Check out my reviews...I've reviewed over 90 hotels and I think this is the first restaurant. That's how good Yang's is. OMG. So wonderful. Got the 4 pork dumplings and wonton soup. Either one would have been good as a meal but both were recommended so I wanted to try them. I think they were only 8 rmb each...some crazy... More
