This place is great if you want some home-cooked food in the Shanghai style. The sheng jian bao has a pretty thick and chewy crust, compared to the usual restaurant styles you find at other restaurants. So people don't like it, but I really really do. The restaurant is pretty small, and the only staff there are the owner, his... More

This little place in Ang Mo Kio HDB flats will only be known to locals. Therefore, was thankful we had our Singaporean friend take us there. Even they had to be recommended by another fellow countryman of theirs. It was a weekend, Saturday but we were there just by 12 noon. There was no crowd yet, and service was friendly,... More

We've been patronizing this outlet since it first started in Sembawang. It gained fame for its Shanghai fried buns which was featured in the papers. During those days, the outlet was bigger and also catered to takeaways. The new outlet in Ang Mo Kio is much smaller and can seat up to 6 tables. They are also no longer able... More

Anyone that has spent time in Shanghai will appreciate the authenticity of the food here and it is delicious. I advise booking in advance as it gets very busy.

The dishes are delicious if you enjoy rich heavy flavored foods. However if you think you can fill up your tummy, then you'll have to order lots of dishes. This is because all dishes are small. The steam dumplings are only 5 to a basket. So for 2 persons, you'll need to get 2 baskets. We also ordered the fried... More

Shanghai Renjia was a great discovery. When I landed at the HDB block in Ang Mo Kio, I wasn't expecting to have some of the best, freshest dim sums in Singapore. Run by people from China, it has great Xiao Long Bao. Try all the steamed dumplings; the fried ones are a bit dry and chewy. The black bean paste... More

My partner has a craving for Xiao long bao and found out this place through a food blogger. I will say it not as good as the blogger claim, the skin is a little thick and the soup in it is not as tasty as I will expect. The other dish which I order is the pan fried bun, the... More

We made a reservation for lunch on a Saturday. We were a little lost in the neighbourhood trying to find the restaurant. When we reached there at 11.15 am, we got a shocked to find the restaurant was closed. We immediately called the owner, and to our surprised, he came to open the door for us. Apparently we were the... More

It's a small restaurant under a HDB flat. You will need to go early to get a table. Service is a bit slow because the owner is running it himself with minimum staff. I come here for the food so service is not on my list of consideration. Simple menu with less than 20 items (I didn't count, it's only... More

On Avenue 5 in Ang Mo Kyo: a small restaurant run by a Shangainese couple turning out exceptional examples of a smallish menu of classic Shanghai dishes. The interior is clean but fairly basic, a few tables, bright lights .... you are here to eat. The Xiao Long Bao dumplings are the best we've had in Singapore, soft and fragrant... More
