    小笼包 is really terrible now. NO soup, no crab taste and the skin is so think... Don't need to come here anymore...
  • Christine H.
    1st floor queue is for takeout, 2nd for dine-in. Go early for no wait. Fried shrimp balls & soup dumplings. Skip the giant XLB with straw.

    Well I guess it just a tourist spot. The dumplings just so so. Had better one at other place. Opposite steamed soup dumpling is much better.

    Eat upstairs, Because any case you will exceed 80RMB with this delicous taste. (See the bill) crab roe soup + shrimp pork dumpling + spring roll extremely recommended.

    Such a disappointment! Xiao long bao is not flavourful, skin is dry n thick, does not even break. Waste of money. Dont bother coming!

    Different min spend amt different taste & quality. 20&50, quality is terrible. Better go for 80/150, but the dimsum still so so only. Typical commercial restaurant, recommend just for one try 😋

    The same shop sells different version/standards of dumplings, the better tasting but much more expensive ones are upstairs.

    The xiaolongbao in Nanjing Road (Jia Jia Tang Bao) is much better and cheaper. Service is just so so.

    22yuan for 16 dumplings if you queue for takeout. 30yuan for 6 dumplings if you eat on the third level. only the dumplings are worth trying, don't bother about the rest of the items!

    If you want to take out dumplings, just stand in line at 1F, but for a seated meal, go to 2F or 3F directly. The higher the floor is, the more quiet with the better view guaranteed .

    Speaking of xiaolongbao, I am certain that Dintaifung is much better than Nanxiang.

    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.

    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.
