    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Jia Jia Tangbao is an institution for Shanghai's own steamed soup dumpling, the xiaolongbao. Hole-in-the-wall location, plastic-stool ambiance, long lines, and an impeccable reputation for their made-to-order soup dumplings. Closing time is arbitrary -- when they sell out, they close -- but is usually around late afternoon or early evening.

    I've been to Jia Jia Tang Bao on a Sunday, around 11am and the place was already packed and with waiting lines. Decided to go there because it's pretty close to my apartment and was a bit disappointed.

    My wife and I had to wait about 10 minutes in line, plus about 20-25 waiting for the food, and we didn't even ate there, we asked the food to go. I would imagine if we were to eat there it would take longer since we would also have to wait for empty seats.

    The food itself was alright, not mind blowing or anything but it was fine. We had the meat and crab tangbaos. You generally get 6 tangbaos, here they give you a bit more, probably around 10 or so, making the prices acceptable.

    The restaurant itself is pretty small and don't expect anything fancy. The staff was also a bit impatient with foreigners.

    If you are willing to wait a long time, in the sun, to eat average tangbaos... then this might be the place for you. If not, go somewhere else, there are other good places around People's Square.

    Went here with my Chinese friend. The place is crowded, especially in the meal time. We went here early for a simple dinner, and we need to queue for a while before there's any empty seats available. After we got in, the queue became longer. Don't expect a private table, because you will be just be seated in any empty spots they have. The menu is simple, they will just hang what dumplings they have that day, and also what kind of food they have. Note : it's all in Chinese, so better to ask someone who can read to come along with you.
