Verdict

Shao Long Bao – 9/10
Wanton with Hot Chilli Sauce – 9/10
Special Fried Rice (Small) – 9/10

The original plan was to visit a restaurant nearby here, however they were full so luckily we stopped by here which I have heard great things about.  They serve simple yet authentic Shanghainese food for a reasonable price.  The Xiao Long Bao or Shao Long Bao were super juicy and meaty, although I would have preferred the the skin to be thinner.  I loved the Wanton with Hot Chilli Sauce, same as the Xiao Long Bao, the skin was thicker, however it was extremely smooth and the hot chilli sauce used was very tasty.  I enjoyed this meal, so simple eyt delicious.  Service was average as I saw how the service to the white diners were better than ours, we always came as second priority.

Would I go back again? Yes
