Dumplings & other Chinese delicacies draw crowds to this casual Chinatown eatery.- Google
"They do have yummy scallion pancakes and you need to order their soup dumplings."
"Extremely untasty unauthentic Chinese food."

Really packed to the brim with customers - good vibe, lots of people and lots of sharing. I got the pork dumplings, and they were wonderful! Dipping sauce was nice, too... Soy and sesame oil with a little kick, chive and cilantro to round it out. Squeeze of lime and youre good to go. Be prepared to speak Chinese, or very frenzied broken English. One is efficient, the other is fun. If you're in the doorway during peak hours, you *will* become very well acquainted with the nook in front of the host stand. It's part of the experience.

Oh how I like this place. There is always a line for this hole-in-the-wall, but hardly ever a long wait; You will understand the reason for both of those statemnts upon eating there. They pack the people in, serve you quickly, and the food is EXCELLENT (I would have italicized that, but I can't on this device... caps will have to suffice). Should I say it? Try the dumplings.

Definitely a great place to grab s quick bite to eat. Has a dive feel, the food was great, and the server was helpful and polite. I cannot speak to the authenticity of the food but there seemed to be a lot of locals there which is a good sign to me.

Very popular spot, waited for about an hour for a table of 3 on a Friday night but certainly worth it. The service was quick, the food was delicious and the staff super friendly. Soup dumplings are a lot of fun and a good deal. Trying to pick up the dumpling without leaking is tricky! The sauteed eggplant with basil is super moist and flavorful. We got a rice cake dish with seafood which was great with soft cakes mixed with sweet seafood pieces. The spicy fish stew is delicious but warning, very hot! Overall, a great place to try with a generous selection!

Showed up at 11pm for a late night dinner with friends the place was packed still. They got us in quickly and the waitress was helpful in telling us recommendations. The food came quickly and it was delicious. Their soups are amazing. I highly recommend this place.

Ambiance Has the feeling of an authentic hole in the wall dumpling house. Very cramped and chaotic, which is something that I personally like. Service Service is so-so. Waiters are typically running around busily and speak broken English. Besides that no complaints. Food Fantastic food especially the (wait for it) dumplings. I've only been there a few times, but everything I have had has been terrific. The food is reasonably priced and comes out quickly enough. They also have lunch specials for a great deal.

Absolutely amazing dumplings. It's a small restaurant, and also quite popular, so expect a wait. Though it tends to move pretty quickly. Once inside the decor is nothing to write home about, but that's not why you came here. As soon as you sit down you're served with a fresh pot of black tea. My wife and I ordered the chicken wings (I order those everywhere) the pork buns, the chicken wonton soup, and savory pork dumplings. Our order took about 20 minutes to get the table. The dumplings were cooked perfectly and very juicy. The buns were soft and warm on the outside with delicious pork and scallions on the inside and the soup was outstanding. I'm still trying to figure out what exactly was in the broth. The whole meal only cost $34. I highly recommend you stop by and try them.
