  • Line at Joe's too long? This place is a great alternative.
  • The food here is better than Joe's Shanghai, just down the block. Plus, there's never a line.
  • Soup dumplings like Joe's, except less expensive and without the crowd and the wait!
  • Great soup dumplings for cheap! Hidden gem, I prefer it to even it's more famous neighbor Joe's Shanghai.
  • Best lunch special ever! $16.95 for 2 dishes, a soup and a soup dumpling. What a steal! And delicious too :)
  • Skip the traditional entrees and get the soup dumplings (#1 on the menu) plus another dim sum.
  • Soup dumplings, but the menu is strong in general

  • I have no idea what this fried whole fish dish is called (ask @markbirch) but it's damn good. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)

  • Advice from joe's shanghai's ex-best customer: shanghai gourmet is better, even for soup dumplings.

  • The skin on the soup dumplings is a bit thick but solid option if you don't want to wait at some of the other places
  • Beef pancakes and xiao long bao are great and made to order!
  • cheaper, less busy sister to the next door Joe's Shanghai. Food is comparable. Skip the line and bring your friends here, instead.
