    I was overlooked for a while, when others were beings served because we were just there for the soup dumplings. We waited about 30 minutes when it wasnt that buisy.

    I wish I had never been to eat this food. We had pork steamed buns - yuk and greasy.Lo mein was ordinary, think the mushrooms were tinned. Veggie fried noodles tasteless and gloopy.

    Good Place Not Excellent

    I came here exclusively for the soup dumplings. I ordered the pork/crab combination. The dumplings had good flavor and I liked the broth. My issue is that I tasted no crab. I also ordered the salt and pepper shrimp. The portion was very nice, but I found the dish to be heavy and greasy. They lacked flavor as the fried dough around the shrimp overtook the dish. Worst of all, they did not devein the shrimp. I assume the high rating this place gets is because it performs better on other dishes.

    The 1 place in NYC that I miss the most

    I lived in NYC for 4 years. I discovered Joes early on. I became such a fan instantly and visited there at least twice a month. Their pork steamed dumplings are to die for and now that I live in LA all I can think about is eating those again. I also love their Fried Rice. Everything I have had there is great and I am jealous of anyone that is able to go eat there. I hightly hightly recommend Joes!

    Get Over Yourself Already

    I've been to Joe's on numerous occasions, and it's always what I expect...Crowded but with great food. Seriously, It’s CHINATOWN...have you really never been seated next to a stranger before? Do you really have a problem with that? If you can handle the experience, I definitely recommend the soup dumplings (pork is my fav.) absolutely delicious and well worth the "hassle". I also love the Pork Shoulder and the Shanghai Fried Rice...Both are cooked to perfection..."fall off the bone" good! So if you can brave the scene and sit next to people you don't know...then I say go for it, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    I was sent here by my sister who swore up and down that this was the place to go in Chinatown and that I must try some of their steamed dumplings. Yeah, not so much. I was seated next to a stranger (all other tables were full) but the waiters there pretty much ignored us and i had to wave two separate people for water. The dumplings were not good at all, yet their prices were essentially based on their "must try" status. I won't go there ever again.

    Great value and tasty

    I admit that this place can be full of non-Chinese, but if you bring 10-12 people you can take over a whole table. It's really the way to go here, as you can order a variety of dishes, and try some decent Shanghainese. I usually order the steamed soup dumplings (always pork sometimes crab) and scallion pancakes to start. They have a few other interesting hot starters (e.g., turnip shortcake), but I prefer the cold appetizers of szechuan cuisine. Lion's head is great and the spicy crispy yellowfish are a bit of an interesting dish. Duck is pretty good too. I also eat the twice cooked shredded beef and the pork shoulder is not bad.
