I went to Yao FuZi for lunch on a Chowhound tip about their xiaolongbao (soup dumplings). What I discovered was a pleasant, upscale restaurant that cooked up promising Shanghainese dishes. For those interested in exploring Chinese cuisine outside of the typical Cantonese fare (dim sum and Chinese BBQ), try Yao FuZi for Shanghai cuisine. I'd highly recommend the Braised Pork (it's actually red cooked pork belly) if you go.
Service was impeccable. Communication not a problem since waitstaff spoke fluent English. The restaurant is actually gorgeous on the inside despite its plain strip mall exterior.
