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!
Soup dumplings. Peking duck is also good - comes with pancakes, hoisin, scallions and cucumbers - but not enough to cost $21. Either way - if there's a wait at joe's shanghai.... Just come here!
The soup dumplings are supposed to be from the same kitchen but there is a marked difference. Generally speaking it's minor but for people who've been going there forever it's very very apparent.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
The pork soup dumplings were delicious. I also got the chicken lo mein and loved it! Everything is good here
Actually the best is the pork soup dumpling the crab is more expensive and has almost no crab I would not bother so much for other dishes
SOUP DUMPLINGS! But beware, don't bite into it too quickly or you'll burn your mouth. Scallion pancakes are really good as well.
The best soup dumplings! Get the pork dumpling and order the green onion pancake (warning: the pancake is greasy).
Short-tempered waiters and good food. No frills but fun. Shorter queues than Joe Shanghai just a few doors down.
The sweet and sour fish and tofu Szechuan style are absolute favorites. Soup dumpling are also a must.
This place is the same as Joe's Shanghai, minus the crowds. Order lots of soup dumplings and scallion pancakes.
if its the middle is summer ask to sit upstairs as there is AC upstairs but none on the main level
You really need to order 2-3 dumpling soups that to satisfy yourself. It's cheap and tasty!!!
a small, noisy place but good dumplings and reasonable prices.
Do not order the vegetable dumplings....but get the pork soup dumplings sooooooo amazing
The sauted seasonal greens, snow pea shoots, are delicious, and they are not on the menu?
Food ranges from terrible to mediocre. The only safe option is the XLB. Beware the nasty lady manager.
Expect awesome non expensive food... Waiter has such a bad attitude that is hilarious.
Completely agree with other tippers, the Soup Dumplings are other worldly...
Come here instead of the roach, rat, and tourist infested Joes Shanghai !
Don't order a beer! It'll end up being more than the dumplings
Try the soup dumplings! You don't have to wait in joes ginger!
Wow, the pork soup buns are to die for!
Bad service. Mediocre food. They don't care anymore. And it is dirty.
I would just recommend trying the soup dumplings and maybe thats it😁
Come with 15 people so you can just order one of everything!
Same soup dumplings as Joe's Shanghai in a less hectic atmosphere.
Some of the best scallion pancakes in china town.
The pork buns are to die for.
Truely miserable guy serving - dire atmosphere!
crab soup dumpings are better than those from Joe's Shanghai
Crispy chicken is worth the wait at both joe's
Best soup dumplings, worst service.
Known for the soup dumplings
SO dank! Definitely go here!
Highly recommended! Awesome food!
Soup dumplings, nothing else.
Get the dumplings
Joe Shanghai without the line!
No wait and same as joe's shanghai
Hair in my soup...
Terrible, it was.
