This is our new go-to place to eat with friends when we're at uni. The soup dumplings are delicious and the broth inside is really tasty. The fried pork buns are really yum too. The place itself is quite small so it can get really crowded during lunchtime but it's fine if we go a little off-peak. The prices are really good for students too and it works out to be quite cheap if we split it between a group. The staff is very friendly too. Overall a great place that I'm glad we found this year!
Not a fan of Shanghai noodles or rice noodles. Average tastes of the steamed buns and fried buns. Dumplings not bad. Have better choices for Shanghai street food in Dominion Road and Mt Albert.
Been looking for a place in the city to get cheap xiao long bao and came cross this place. We ordered the traditional steamed buns (xiao long bao) and a mix of the fried juicy dumpling (sheng Jian bao) which comes with pork, vege and prawn/cheese fillings. The xiao long bao was great- super juicy and the broth and filling was delicious. Sheng Jian Bao was nice- not too crispy that it was hard to bite in to. The pork and vege ones also have the same broth whereas the prawn and cheese one does not have any broth. Pork filling was alright, vege one had an interesting taste- not sure if I like it or not. The prawn and cheese was different but probably wouldn’t order it again as I prefer the traditional pork fillings. Everything was super affordable, service was decent and it’s a nice cosy little place to get yourself some cheap eats. Would definitely come back again.
