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

Short walk from People's Square Metro Station (huge & crowded interchange). Small store with limited seats. Along the way on the same street are many bigger restaurants with touts outside seeking tourist dollars which should be avoided. Simple, nice meal and kind on the wallet, especially the shrimps fillings if you're a seafood lover. Noodles are also available.

We stayed at Le Royal Meriden and the concierge recommended this place. We had the the six dumpling set each. 2 of each of the prawn, spinach and meat Xiao Long Boa for 16 RMB. Super cheap. Lucky we arrived early (around 5pm) as queues were forming and tables were limited. Excellent Xiao Long Boa (soup filled dumpling). Prawn was... More

Pan-fried bun(生煎包) is a famous food in Shanghai. So this time I chose this restaurant to try the Pan-fried bun. At that time i ordered a dish of Pan-fried bun, there are six buns, and the bun include pork and sesame. When I try one, full of soup was flowing out. It was scalding my tongue. So you must be...

I stay at the JW Marriott just so I can come here (and across the street to Jia Jia Tong Bao) for breakfast. The prices are starting to creep up a bit, but their dumplings are so damn good...My breakfast consists of eight regular pork dumplings and a bowl of their incredible hot and sour noodle soup. The total cost:... More

This place is an excellent authentic Shanghai dumpling place and you don't need to go anywhere else. The bottom of dumpling is fried to crispy, the inside is juicy and tasty, meat and wrapping is the just right proportion. Will be back again.

They were real Shanghai friend dumplings. The place is a dive which makes it all the more authentic. Skip the soup - it was flat but do stop by for a real treat.
