Have been here a couple of times recently and have had great meals. The staff were very friendly and polite, a bit more care has been taken than usual with the decor for a cheapish restaurant of this kind, and we really enjoyed the food....More

Had a great lunch at Jolin Shanghai restaurant - Yummy Shanghai style food. I had the Pork & Vege Wonton Soup and a plate of Pork Dumplings which cost about $20 including a pot of tea. Would return.

Very, very good soup dumplings, which I would definitely return to eat. However, the other two dishes we ordered were average at best, and the service was nothing special. Despite these shortcomings, I would certainly reccomend coming here just to try the dumplings- I would...More

This restaurant came well recommended by the friend of a friend with a reputation for knowing his dumplings. The steamed pork buns were great, but the dumplings were decidedly doughy! Service was fine and the restaurant very clean. The price was reasonable.
