Great dim sums. Come early to escape waiting line. Mini dim sums with soup are the best. Cold appetizers waist of money. Too simple and not best quality. Stay with dim sums only.

Really good dim sum in Xintiandi which is a must-see part of Shanghai. It's in a shopping mall, so not the most atmospheric, but the food is great. The Shanghai dumplings here are delicious. A bit pricey but worth a visit.

Definitely worthy of the hype. Both the dumplings and the buns were delicious - definitely follow the instructions on the card to get the ginger, soy and vinegar ratio right for your dip - it makes a huge difference! The shrimp and asparagus was also good.

I was a little surprised by the totally unromantic atmosphere of this place...I even had some trouble finding it because I didn't realize it was on the second floor of a mall. But the food was great and cheap and we had a very good time.

Had three types of dumplings - pork, shrimp, and a mix in a spicy sauce. The skins were perfectly smooth and light. A great pop when poked with the chop sticks. The green beans in prok were good though the beans were a bit overcooked and lacked the snap of fresh cooked. Staff was friendly and quick. The atmosphere of the place was a bit bland. The area it's in has a lot more cool places to hand out for a beer; but the food here is great. A bit more pricey than a locals place but worth going to!
