Dallas Observer's Description

Typical fast-food Chinese isn't what is served at this bantam white-tablecloth restaurant. No, this place, as its name spells out, offers diners Shanghai-style cuisine. Among the specialties are the preserved duck, jellyfish with radishes and yellowfish soup. And the staff will guide first-time customers in the proper way to eat Xiao Long Bao (soup dumplings). It's the Xiao Long Bao that everyone raves about, whether it's the pork or crab dumplings. Keep in mind, though, when you're at Shanghai, you're in Chinatown. That means sometimes you have to raise your voice to be heard over the din of the flat-screen television broadcasting Chinese variety shows and soap operas.

  • Dan G. on 07/10/10

    The steamed juicy buns ( dumplings with pork) are absolutely amazing

  • Clinton S. on 02/08/14

    Gonna be honest here... The food is great, but the service needs to be increased. Not enough waitstaff for a Saturday night.... :(

  • Chris F. on 11/17/13

    Juicy soup pork dumplings and pork hotpot with tripe and bamboo shoots! Chinese comfort food!

  • Dallas G. on 10/21/13

    $6.50 lunch buffet

  • Marjorie O. on 02/06/12

    Rice cake - you won't find this on other menus - give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
