    Better than ever

    Have been coming here on occasion for years. The total renovation of this intimate space in the arcade on Elizabeth St. is extremely cute and comfortable. But the food is better than ever. I found the prices very reasonable and the food very good. Had the spicy cabbage cold dish and a wonderfully seasoned shanghai lo mein with nice fat tender immaculately deveined shrimp. Highly recommended.

    Too sweet

    The juicy dumplings are way too sweet. fried rice cakes were super salty and in deep brown sauce. pork with preserved vegetables (canned) mei fun was bland.

    Love this food!

    I have been coming to this restaurant since I was a little girl. This place is the best hole-in-the wall restaurant in Chinatown. Now that it has a new owner, the restaurant has been renovated to include new tables, booths, and even new menus (with Thai dishes added to the selection). The new owner is amazingly nice and is always smiling. The prices have risen since I first started eating there 15 years ago, but it is still very cheap. Be sure to get the pan fried pork dumplings and the pan fried noodles with beef. They are amazing.

    small place but decent food

    their tropicana sushies are the best ever. i always come here in the summer just to get them but sometimes unfortunatley its not always ready bc the machine takes time to mix the ice and drinks. they also sell coconut, hawaiian punch slusheis and she allows you to mix the flavors up. the XIAOLUNGBAOS are okay here. juicy but not all that. ive had frozen ones that were better. nothing is really so great here. theres a lot of hype about this place being authentic shanghai food but its okay. i might have had better previously. the prices are a bit pricey compared to chinese food. for those non-asians, YES there is a difference. shanghai can be considered asian food but its not the same as chinese. they may cook about the same tastes using same methods but its a whole different cuisine. this place is worth a try when its not too busy. the staff are generally pretty nice.

    Not worth the wait.

    My friends and I waited 40 minutes just for 8 steamed mediocre dumplings. The next time we came, I decided to order one of the cold noodle dishes (I've had one in a different restaurant and they were good). We waited about 20 minutes and the noodles we got tasted like peanut butter for some reason. Even the duck cold noodles and the "spicy" meat sauce noodles tasted like peanut butter. I took one bite and spit it back on to my plate.

    Wonderful, with room to improve

    Good food, good service, friendly people, great prices. Don't come here for atmosphere, but that's not why it's often packed. Pet peeves? Despite thousands of requests over the years, they refuse to serve fresh, hot mustard or stock ginger ale. Listen to your customers (even though we keep coming back despite such little matters).
