I noticed there are a number of good reviews for this restaurant but not for me, and i will share with you my experience. I visited on a weekday evening around 6 plus with family of 5 person with kid, I supposed we were lucky to skip the queue and get a shared table upon arrival (there were quite a queue after us). The restaurant itself isn't very spacious and it can be quite stuffy. There is only 2 types of dumpling (mixed pork and crab meat and pure crab meat xiao long bao), we ordered one each, and one seaweed soup. They do sell beer if you want. With the dining experience and the money spent, I would prefer "ding tai feng" if you know what i meant. First the dumpling itself it not cheap, it certainly taste better that others that i have tasted in shanghai, i love their "ginger" however, it will cost you $2 rmb per plate. but the dining experience would be much better and you get more variety in "ding tai feng". I don't mind the first try as tourist, but i may not try it again.
