Ok so we thought ya right, what are the chances the #12 TripAdvisor spot in Shanghai is only a 5 minute walk away from the Marriott. The street this place is on is like a movie set, very colorful, loud, busy but not crowded. We walked the street 3 times before deciding that it was the place with all the... More

We rarely repeat places while traveling, but came here 3 days straight while in Shanghai because we loved it so much! No frills atmosphere, but superb quality compared to others we tried and fair prices at 30 yuan for 12 dumplings and 8 yuan for a big beer. Things sell out through the day so come early to avoid that... More

This is a very popular place to eat xia long bao since 6.30 am to 7.30 pm. Highly recommended the crab and pork ones, 12 pieces just 31 yuans! Be patient, it's a small place, there are many customers, and you might need to wait for a while. There's a menu in English, but the employees don't speak English that... More

Coming from Singapore, I'm no stranger to xiaolongbao, the main attraction here at Jia Jia. But the XLB here is one of the best I've ever had — the filling is very fresh, the skin wrapping the dumplings is thin yet strong, and there are so many varieties to choose from. The vinegar (on the side) is not as sharp... More

There was a long line but it moved reasonably quick- though it was 9AM- We liked them but not really all that... atmosphere is interesting- good people watching.

Went in search for this little eatery based on Tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. It's a tiny restaurant, very very simply decorated and a queue which we joined at 10.30 am, went on for 40 minutes. Well worth the wait! We had steamed crab and pork dumplings and a seaweed and egg soup, both absolutely delicious. The place is... More

I know Ding Tai Fung has a higher end dining experience and better service but way over priced. And Yu Garden is now too commercial, aiming for tourists and it has lost the original taste of Xiao Long. If you're after an authentic and original taste experience of Shanghainese steamed pork dumplings 'Xiao Long Bao', Jia Jia Tang Bao is... More

I tried different soup dumpling in Shanghai & this is the best. I bought the crab roe pork soup dumpling. The skin is so thin and the meat is so juicy. You can taste the crab roe too. It's very good price of 30 yen per basket (12 pieces). Service is good compare to other small shop along the Nanjing... More

This small restaurant, located in Huanghe lu and close to People's Square metro station (exit 9), is very popular for different styles of Chinese dumping (Xiolongbao). Please note that there are always a long queue for dining inside, and please don't expect you would sit for long time because there are many people waiting and the restaurant is so small... More
