Love their xiao long bao, and hope they don't lower their quality with the influx of tourists. Wait time still sucks while ordering and trying to get the attention of the waiters.

Little underwhelmed by all the good reviews. Was there for breakfast on a weekday, not so busy. The soy milk, crispy dough and crab bao was pretty good, not as amazing as I was hoping for, we had better in the west coast and in Asia. The Shanghai Shao Mai was just strange in texture and taste, not getting that... More

The food was great and you can tell why everyone goes to eat there. You will be happy with anything you order from the menu. This was the first of many places we ate in Flushing and it was a great place to start.

We met our friends here for a local taste of the real nyc - their recommendation and we really enjoyed it. Soup dumplings were delicious and everything else was good. Service was ok, they kinda forgot about us but what more do you expect when you have tourists at the table?!

If you are craving soupy Chinese pork or crabmeat dumplings this is your place. I think their dumplings are even better than famous Joe Shanghai's. If you are not a fan of soupy dumplings they have plenty of other dumpling varieties including pure veg ones. But this place is so much more than just dumplings, their small menu is packed... More

This Shanghainese Restaurant was in the heart of Chinatown. Quite busy but the food is average. Price is reasonable. Service is no nonsense type.

My family really likes to try new food, particularly Asian cuisine. So we went to this place because we saw it on Anthony bourdain and it was pretty good! The food was good but there is a sweet taste to it. The soup dumplings were great, and the tripe was decent but be aware that it is ice cold. Don't... More

We went the day after Christmas and I know that had something to do with the line. We waited for 1 hour, but as soon as we got a table they promptly took our order and we completed our meal within 40 minutes. Everything was hot and delicious! Would definitely go back!

Let me be clear, this is NOT Din Tai Fun. Here in NY, I will say it is somehow close enough. Xia Long Bao are good. But we are not the fan of Udon noodle and vegetable dumpling. I'll suggest guests to arrive the restaurant before 6:30 to avoid waiting and crowds.

Soup dumplings are more of a Chinese tradition than an ah ha moment. Restaurant full of Chinese patrons. The only way to get the full benefits of this place is to try many plates with many people. No dish is very expensive but it can get up there in price if you try several dishes. Glad I went, would not... More
