This endearing hole-in-the wall has become a regular spot for me. Their take on Shanghai cuisine is generally excellent and humbly innovative. The service is also excellent – Sandy, co-proprietor and server could be one of the best servers I have ever seen: friendly, knowledgeable, fast and efficient.


I recommend the Xiao Long Bao (soup dumplings), the Hot and Sour Fish Maw Soup, their unique Crispy Rice with Salty Egg Yolk (which goes very well with the Hot and Sour Soup as a crouton-like condiment), Fish with Pinenut, and their Drunken Chicken. The flavours are clean and the food is prepared expertly.

Their Xiao Long Bao here is a standout – one of the best in town and very close to the top of the heap. It is expertly prepared – translucent skin, perfect pleating, and plump with broth.


They have a small and very focused menu (not the nearly 200 items you often would see in a Chinese restaurant in this town)…and everything I have had there over the years has been very good…and inexpensive. This is the kind of place that exemplifies the type of restaurant that Vancouver does best.

    • Hi Ben!

      I’m a huge fan of your blog.

      The content for this post was prepared a couple of month back…pure coincidence!…or should I say great minds think alike 😉

  1. This is fantastic! I’ve always been looking for a good Shanghai restaurant. And that’s always the trouble they can be hard to find. I definitely would rather go to a restaurant with a small menu and is great than one that has a large selection and is okay. I definitely have to check this place out. I drive by all the time. Thanks for the great suggestion!

  2. Thank you for coming back. Thank you for sharing your food adventures. I hope you continue your food blog. We’re glad to see you back.
