Foursquare Tips

  • Go straight for the crabs fried with chile and garlic; the crocks of Old Alley Pork, braised into pig candy; the smoked fish; the stone-pot fried rice; or the pan-fried pork buns.
  • Jonathan Gold recommends: Old Shanghai braised pork, jellyfish with vinegar, pan-fried pork buns, xiao long bao, stir-fried green beans with chef sauce, stone-pot fried rice, tapioca soup with papaya.
  • One of the best dim sum place in san gabriel area
  • Glamour decor for a Chinese restaurant. Hongkongese style Shanghai Cuisine. Serves dimsum at lunch time.
  • Lunchtime dim sum is much better than you might expect the morning crew unexpectedly speaks Cantonese among themselves.
  • Next time I think I will skip the braised pork. It's excellent, but is it really worth the calories? The sesame fried pork soup dumplings are essential! The xiao long bao is not, but still good.
  • Fancy place for Shanghai food, my favorite is meatball soup, braised pork belly, nice ambience, feeling like in the old Shanghai
  • Extremely authentic Chinese food. Try the 1, the 1010, the 1035, and the soup dumplings!
  • One of the best dim sum restaurant in the SVG area.
  • Named Best Menu Los Angeles 2014 in our 2014 Best of LA issue!
  • try their dan tats! rich creamy custard!
  • The environment is nice, with white table cloths. The food I ordered has good presentations, but a couple of items were a little bit too greasy.
  • This place has some legit Shanghai cuisine.
  • Not so great. Dry short ribs, cold hot tea, dishes aren't hot when they get to the table. Portions are uneven.
  • They only accept soup dumplings orders after 11am.
  • Steam shanghai juicy pork bun is the best
  • I'm from Shanghai, this place is very authentic, and nice environment too. Complaints about bad service are overblown. Finally, a delicious and presentable Chinese restaurant that's not Cantonese.
  • The service here is slow on weekend nights. It took 3 hours to get through dinner with lots of waiting time. If you're in a later seating, they also run out of a lot of dishes.
  • Get the stone pot fried rice and let it sit for 10 minutes -- you'll get a lot more flavor, especially at the bottom of the pot.
  • Cool "inception" decor... Food was good, But way overpriced. Our bill was was over $600 for 18 people. For the same amount of people in Chinatown we usually spend $200.
