I am a big fan of Joe's Shanghai in Chinatown. But I could not enjoy my food at this location because of the prices are sky high! You get 8 dumplings in Chinatown for $6.95, while you get 6 dumplings for $8.95 here. A dish that costs $16.50 downtown costs $25.00 here. Poor value...

We arrived early for lunch and were seated right away. Waiter seemed annoyed that we didn't know our way around the menu. To be fair, another waiter was very nice. We only ordered 2 orders of dumplings (average). All in all waiters seemed anxious for us to clear out for customers with larger stomachs! Don't go into the restrooms - you might lose your appetite!

The last time I went there was on the 1st day of the Chinese new year (feb 2004). I normally go to the one in chinatown or the one in flushing, queens. Since there aren't that many chinese restaurants around my work area, my coworkers and I decided to go for some Crab-meat dumplings and rice cake. Those crab-meat dumplings were the not very good. If you've been to the places other than this one you can definitely tell the difference. Service was OK, more pricy, and only served 6 pieces of dumplings in the dish (normally 8 pieces in other restaurants). I wouldn't want to go there again unless I have to.

We love the soup dumplings at Shanghai Cuisine in Chinatown. However, after just arriving in NY and staying at the Rhiga we wanted something quick and close. The food was good, their soup dumplings were quite good. The prices were outrageous and the portions were quite small. All in all, next time we'll hop the subway back to Chinatown.

I'm sorry, but their food is getting worse. I should point out that this is regards to their lunch menu. Over the years, the portions have cut in half and the food has gotten worse... I used to love their tofu & mushroom dish.. These days, it just looks like it's been boiled in water. I'm done with this place.

It is amazing of the soup bun. The reason called soup bun because there is a lot of juice inside the bun. The turnip short is really good too. The shanghai flat noodle is something difference with lo mein, it is worth to try it. My favorite dish is the Jumbo shrimp with hot chili sauce.
