their xiao long bao dumplings are so good!!! i have been to a few din tai fung restos and shanghai dumpling in millbrae is definetly better. and the shrimp dish too, just plain shrimp cooked to perfection. and they have sweet and sour pork ribs, delicious!!! the place itself could be nicer, but i guess the way it is now gives it an homey and cozy feel. service is quite attentive too. i went back twice in one week.

Just came back from Shanghai, China three weeks ago and went to ate at the Shanghai Dumpling Shop last Sat. Found out that the food was just mediocre, the dumplings were over price and not as tasty as the one I had in Shanghai. The wine chicken was almost tasteless, we ordered the Minced Pork Noodles and we were shocked that the taste of the noodles tasted awful, we kind of joked around that the chef might have used some vegetable oil from the sewage to make cook the noodles. The service was so so and the place is kind of small and not comfortable at all. We don't think that we will pay another visit to this place in the near future.

Business trip- don't want to go out, but don't want to eat at the hotel. Jumped on TA to see what was close, fast, and really good-- up pops Shanghai Dumpling Shop.

I figured that if people are comparing it to dumplings in Shanghai, then it's worth a shot. At least it will be better than the 88 China Buffet places.

All I can say is that you MUST get the green onion bread and the pork and crab dumplings. Absolutely FANTASTIC!
