    I have eaten at about 100 different chinese restaurants in NYC and this is by far the best Chinese food I have ever had. I was a little against the group seating at first, but i cant get enough of this place. The soup dumpings are a must.

    Pungent ginger aplenty

    Where do you find enough ginger in a dish? Joe's Shanghai. It's fresh and pungent and cut thin as angel hair. Tripe lover? Have the sliced pork tripe with garlic sauce: tender and plentiful with perfectly sauteed cloud's ears, onions, celery, green and red pepper in a rich, velvety, zesty sauce that really brings out the garlic flavor.

    Go for 2 Dishes

    Ambiance and friendly service are non-existent at this Chinatown restaurant, as noted by (many) others. (The Flushing outpost is a bit better on both fronts.) But never mind. Just order the soup dumplings (crab and pork) and a scallion pancake These are their two amazing dishes -- the dumplings they're famous for and the pancake here is the only one I've found in NYC that tastes really homemade and delicious. Other dishes here can be hit or miss. We tried sauteed water spinach, which is normally a tasty green but in this case was served sitting in about a cup of oil. The new year's cake (subgum style) can be good too, though they sometimes lay on the soy sauce a bit heavy. S Stick with the pancake and dumplings!

    Two Items

    Finally tried Joe's. I agree that the soup dumplings are excellent and the scallion pancake delicious. The rest of the food I saw or tasted was mediocre. The service is just abusive and rude. Too bad. I will never plan to go back to Joe's, but if I pass by and there is room, I would go in for some dumplings.

    Excellent Food

    I've never been here before so I had no expectations. It was typically crowded and noisy, but then the first taste of those scallion pancakes hooked me. Then came the soup dumplings and then the orange beef. Everything I had was tried for the first time here and have no complaints.

    Uneducated Western palates know nothing

    I've been coming here over the years and their soup dumplings are the best in Manhattan in that they're very juicy compared to those found anywhere else on the island. Their Vegetarian Duck, Shredded Eels with Yellow Chives and Stewed Tofu/Bean Curd with Crab Meat are also a couple of my old standbys which, as of two days ago, are still good.

    Soup Dumplings

    order the crab meat and pork dumplings and you're done. I've never had anything else on the menu and nor do I need to. The dumplings are worth the trek to Chinatown
