Joe's Shanghai in Chinatown was recommended to us by the locals here in New York. We are soo glad we made the trip to Chinatown to eat there. It was a truly unique experience. The pork dumplings are to die for and the greatest part is watching everyone's technique on eating these delicacies! You are sat next to strangers since space is limited, but it is all part of the amazing experience.

I have weird chronic cravings for their soup dumplings. This location is much cheaper than the UWS location, but also much busier. If you're during rush hour, expect to be asked if you want to sit with people you don't know. Also, show up ahead of time to grab a number. Pretty authenic Chinese food-even my China born/bred/raised parents approved. Actually, the waiters were really friendly and chatted quite a bit when they realized I spoke Chinese. So if they seem stand-offish, it might be the language barrier.

As others have found, the soup dumplings here are great. The food style is 'old style' traditional Shanghai - which is perhaps more strong tasting and odd-vegetable than most western tastes. I love it however. The crab dumplings were excellent, we had the Soya Duck cold dish. It was very good. We had the Bacon with Preserved Vegetable, and that was quite good, and very traditional. Some of my western friends would not find it to their liking though, I'm sure! We had also the Celery with Tofu and Pork. This was only fair (my wife's at home is actually better). Too much oil was the major problem, but the velveted pork shreds were perfect. Like last time - pretty good, doesn't quite make it to excellent though.

I was introduced to Joe's Shanghai at a birthday dinner tonight, and I'd love to go back sometime soon! If you go, you MUST order the crab meat soup dumplings ... beyond that, it's your call, but I wouldn't skip the shrimp and chicken in plum sauce!! The service is another thing to priase, as the waiters are quick and responsive. Enjoy!

They are just lucky that their dimsum is famous and delicious because they seriously have an attitude problem!
