The Xiao Long Bao are super tasty and affordable. As were the beef noodles and the onion pancake. What makes it even better is that you don't pay trendy prices. We arrived at 7pm on a Monday evening, got a number and waited to be...More

I was expecting a busy crowd at Mama Lu's, given its reputation, and my boyfriend and I probably waited for ~30 minutes before we were seated. However, I'd argue this was a blessing in disguise, given that it gave us time to maximise our hunger,...More

Not great, but not bad. Definitely get good large portions on each dish. Ordered the hot&Sour soup, dumplings and beef mushroom. Small place and does get busy, but overall an OK choice to go to.

Specialize in shanghai food which can be sweet. Dumplings are amazing especially fish. Servings are huge you can easily feed many people with even leftovers. The pricing is reasonable and service is quick. Well worth the wait. Enjoy
