First time here and only got the 2 items listed in my title. I had been craving soup dumplings and was excited to come to this place based on the 4.2 score on Google reviews, but wow was I disappointed. The soup dumplings were only mediocre, lacking the delicious flavor and soupiness that you can find at the best soup... More

My first time to this restaurant with my family. The staff was not at all friendly, especially the man who had clip board to arrange customer seating. He was rude, and I didn't appreciate his tone of voice when asked if I could be seated when tables were available.He really needs to chill, and stop being so uptight. Well the... More

We flew into San Francisco to visit Monterey. Though we usually hit In-n-Out when we come through California my son was asking for Dim Sum. Though we couldn't find Dim Sum we saw some great reviews for Shanghai Dumpling Shop. Right away we noticed the place was filled with Asians - always w good sign when looking for good Chinese....

The Dumpling Shop in Millbrae has the best Xiao Long Bao around. These are soup dumplings. They have other good Dim Sum and a nice variety of Chinese food There noodles are excellent and the value is great!!

We were here for dinner and surprised that this restaurant so busy. I found foods below average but the portions were huge. Not exactly cheap also. Service was fast but not friendly. Male toilet needs to be cleaned sometimes.

Maybe its a matter of taste but really so, so, so . Read reviews and saw a busy line and full resto on a weekday, that being a really small restaurant. Michelin rated at that. It all boils to the taste. Yang Chow fried rice was very ordinary, not salty yet not flavorful. Quality of rice thick and clumpy. Needed... More

This place was PACKED! On a Tuesday night. Which leads me to believe that I ordered the WRONG thing. I should also mention it was full of Chinese people and clearly they know better than I do about what is good and bad Chinese food. That said, I have only ever had worse Chinese food in Santiago, Chile 😂 I... More

My friend recommended this place, so I decided to give it a try. I arrived at about 1:30 pm on a Sunday, there was a bit of a wait, but not too bad. The steam pork dumping is supposed to be the "must have" dish, but it was a bit too salty for my taste - Admittedly, I am a... More

And fast! Reasonably priced and easy parking. Casual dress code. Not too spicy. Vegetarian dishes are bland. Onion pancakes are a bit greasy but tasty.
