the menu is long (as menus often are in this neighborhood), but you only need order the first two things on the menu. #1. crab meat soup dumplings. #2. pork soup dumplings.
Soup dumplings are awesome. Go here instead of Joes Shanghai.. its practically next store, shares the same cooks/menu, and you don't have to wait for a table!
Soup dumplings, nothing else.
Some of the best scallion pancakes in china town.
Crispy chicken is worth the wait at both joe's
Same soup dumplings as Joe's Shanghai in a less hectic atmosphere.
Joe's Shanghai & Joe's Ginger are on same block, serve same soup dumplings. Don't wait two hrs outside former, when u can walk in and be seated at the latter.
The pork soup dumplings were delicious. I also got the chicken lo mein and loved it! Everything is good here
Don't order a beer! It'll end up being more than the dumplings
This place is the same as Joe's Shanghai, minus the crowds. Order lots of soup dumplings and scallion pancakes.
Try shanghai thick noodle stirfry, YES! (Recommended a guy grew up from shanghai). Be aware of the only lady staff at the cash counter tho, very impatient!
Go here instead of Jo's Shanghai. Same menu/chefs. Same awesome legendary dumplings. Wonderfully civilized atmosphere and friendly service unlike its tourist trap neighbor.
SO dank! Definitely go here!
As many have said...same owners/cooks as joe shanghai (tourist trap). Get the CRAB soup dumplings. I'm an eyewitness to the staff cracking open real crab for their dumplings!
The soup dumplings is comparable, not as good as queens location though, fish (seabass) ordered wasn't as fresh though:(. If u want dumplings without the wait of other spot, come over here!
Expect awesome non expensive food... Waiter has such a bad attitude that is hilarious.
I would just recommend trying the soup dumplings and maybe thats it😁
Bad service. Mediocre food. They don't care anymore. And it is dirty.
The pork buns are to die for.
if its the middle is summer ask to sit upstairs as there is AC upstairs but none on the main level
Highly recommended! Awesome food!
Terrible, it was.
Best soup dumplings, worst service.
Short-tempered waiters and good food. No frills but fun. Shorter queues than Joe Shanghai just a few doors down.
Do not order the vegetable dumplings....but get the pork soup dumplings sooooooo amazing
Completely agree with other tippers, the Soup Dumplings are other worldly...
Why get in line @Joe'sShanghai or @NomWah when you've got Joe's Ginger around the corner? Seriously delicious soup dumplings &scallion pancakes, it won't hurt to be adventurous and try something new!
You really need to order 2-3 dumpling soups that to satisfy yourself. It's cheap and tasty!!!
The best soup dumplings! Get the pork dumpling and order the green onion pancake (warning: the pancake is greasy).
So much better than Joe's Shanghai! I prefer the straight-up pork dumplings to the pork & crab. Try one of their fried rice dishes, you won't regret it.
Come with 15 people so you can just order one of everything!
Wow, the pork soup buns are to die for!
The sauted seasonal greens, snow pea shoots, are delicious, and they are not on the menu?
crab soup dumpings are better than those from Joe's Shanghai
Try the soup dumplings! You don't have to wait in joes ginger!
