Foursquare Tips

  • Long queue for take out. Eat upstair for more comfortable experience. except there is a minimum charge of RMB 80 per head when eating in.
  • 20 yuan for 16 xiaolongbao. Argh.
  • 50/ 80/
  • 13
  • You must wait in queue for 40 fuckin' minutes
  • For 1 to 2 persons, better to go or the premium location with RMB60 min spend. One serve of dumplings alone is around that. Line is much shorter.
  • Third floor menu is about 3x more expensive than second floor, but about 1/20th the wait for a table
  • More variety and higher price tags can be found on the upper levels. Be sure to hone your chopstick skillz, you don't want to lose any soup in the dumplings.
  • Xiao long bao!
  • Save yourself sometime and go straight to the 3rd floor!! Their selection of Xiao Long Baos is much more vast up there as well!!
  • 23
  • long ass line outside always. so pony up and go upstairs to avoid queuing. bad service but the xiaolongbao is pretty damn delicious.
  • Just spend 150 yuan/pp and eat on the third floor. The line is way tooo long to wait on.
  • You are probably already queuing here and it is pretty good. Next time go local and hit up ling long fang or fuchun!
  • Don't forget to order ginger. It's separate!
  • The takeout line may be long, but it moves super fast
  • Expect long lines on the weekends. Be patient, the lines move fairly smoothly.
  • This is a tourist must try, but dont stand in the giant queue for take out. Go inside, you can usually get a seat and served quicker. Try the giant crab dumplings with the straw sticking out!
  • Gotta get an oversized xiao lan bao
