been there a few times over the year. food is alright. xiaolongbao is nice. however the quality and quantity of food has dropped recently. brought a plate of seasoned beef for over 10 dollars. and it weights 50g? can also see the beef showing green bits all the way through. not worth returning anymore.
Been dying to try xiao long bao since hearing Anthony Bourdain rave about it and heard Chu Long Ji did arguably the best XLB in Auckland/NZ. I ordered the Wuxi style XLB (which I was told was a sweeter style) and while it was definitely delicious I feel like it didn't quite meet my very high expectations set by Bourdain's description. Regarding other factors, the menu was affordable and not too vast, the staff were fast, friendly and helpful and the restaurant was very clean and well decorated. I'll definitely be back to try another XLB style and other dishes.
