a small, noisy place but good dumplings and reasonable prices.
Food ranges from terrible to mediocre. The only safe option is the XLB. Beware the nasty lady manager.
Come here instead of the roach, rat, and tourist infested Joes Shanghai !
SOUP DUMPLINGS! But beware, don't bite into it too quickly or you'll burn your mouth. Scallion pancakes are really good as well.
Hair in my soup...
Truely miserable guy serving - dire atmosphere!
No wait and same as joe's shanghai
Joe Shanghai without the line!
The sweet and sour fish and tofu Szechuan style are absolute favorites. Soup dumpling are also a must.
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.
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!
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
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!
Same soup dumplings as Joe's Shanghai in a less hectic atmosphere.
Terrible, it was.
Best soup dumplings, worst service.
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
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).
Don't order a beer! It'll end up being more than the dumplings
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!
This place is the same as Joe's Shanghai, minus the crowds. Order lots of soup dumplings and scallion pancakes.
Wow, the pork soup buns are to die for!
Soup dumplings, nothing else.
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 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!
Try the soup dumplings! You don't have to wait in joes ginger!
Crispy chicken is worth the wait at both joe's
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!
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.
Some of the best scallion pancakes in china town.
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!
