“Soup dumplings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

We stopped in and got an order of the crab meat soup dumplings. They were great. I had never had anything like it before. There was a little bit of a language barrier but we worked through it.

“Great authentic Chinese food and experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Popular and crowded Chinese restaurant in middle of New York's Chinatown. Only waited about 10 minutes for late lunch. Awkward sitting with others at small table. The soup dumplings, noodle soup, fried rice and tea were excellent.

“Worth it once you get past the angry barking woman on the door”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Joe's Shanghai is well known for its amazing soup dumplings, and the crowds waiting on the street for entry to this place is a good indicator of the enduring appeal of this place, with tourists and locals alike braving the New York winds to get their hands on these delicious dumplings. Don't mind the curt lady on the door, once you get past her and get tucked into the food you will know it was all worthwhile. We paid $20 each (without drinks) for more food than we could finish.

“AWESOME!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

You have GOT to try this place! The dumplings are definitely great, but the chicken fried rice and the general tso's chicken WERE OUT OF THIS WORLD! We will be returning here our next trip to the city for sure!

“Xiao long bao!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

Very good dumplings as all the other reviews suggest. Also got fried pork dumplings and scallion pancakes, all very good. Bill for 2 people was $18 for great food!

They do table sharing so you may be seated at a large round table with others, but it's not a big deal.
