    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!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    The best soup dumplings! Get the pork dumpling and order the green onion pancake (warning: the pancake is greasy).

    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.

    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!

    The sweet and sour fish and tofu Szechuan style are absolute favorites. Soup dumpling are also a must.

    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!

    Short-tempered waiters and good food. No frills but fun. Shorter queues than Joe Shanghai just a few doors down.

    This place is the same as Joe's Shanghai, minus the crowds. Order lots of soup dumplings and scallion pancakes.

    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.
  • Дмитрий К.
    You really need to order 2-3 dumpling soups that to satisfy yourself. It's cheap and tasty!!!

    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

    The sauted seasonal greens, snow pea shoots, are delicious, and they are not on the menu?

    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!

    Service déplorable. Vraiment. Jamais vu un tel comportement ! Ils vous tapent les menus en tas sur la table. Les assiettes/couverts déposés n'importe comment. Rien à faire de mettre devant vous!
