You may avoid the long wait during off hours 2-6p.m. on the weekend or go on a week day. Other than their famous mini steamed buns, the cold dishes are delicious as well. However, tasty food are usually done with lots of oil...

There's always a long wait at this location unless yo go during of-peak hours. The soup dumplings are among the best in NY and are worth the wait. The scallion pancakes and chicken pan-fried noodles are also family favorites. There's a municipal parking lot diagonal from the restaurant or metered street parking on the rare occasion you can find an... More

If they ask you how many dumplings you want make sure you understand what they are talking about. We ordered 4 and they brought 4 orders of 8 dumplings! Very good but entirely too much food

Joe's Shanghai is the place to go for dumplings and just about anything else Chinese. We arrived around 9pm on a Saturday and waited about 10 minutes to be seated. The wait-staff was very pleasant and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Keep in mind, they are cash only and add a 15% gratuity to the bill "for your... More

I keep reading about places, including some in the Main St area, that have better soup dumplings than Joe's. I try each and every one and each and every time I come back to Joe's for the only soup dumplings close to those offered in Shanghai itself. Many locals agree. The "Main Street" area is at the end of the... More

Simply awesome. You just must try the soup dumplings and shredded beef. Prices a little on the high side but well worth it

We picked up take out food on a Saturday evening. The streets are very crowded near this restaurant so parking is difficult, but there is an alley next to the restaurant where one of us could turn around the car and wait while the other ran inside to pick up our order. Just remember that this place is cash only.... More

The seafood was wonderful. I had the soup dumplings. What a hot (steamed) appetizer. Poached Flounder and yellow seafood rice. You must try.
