lao wangs noodle house is easily the best traditional Chinese dumplings I've ever eaten. The place is small but always packed and it is run by a really cute old Chinese couple that are so sweet. Don't feel offended if they come off a little bit rude because it's just the two of them that cook, clean, do everything and they're always it's just their culture to be straight forward. It's like coming to eat and grandma and grandpa's house....but way better! Also, try their lager!

This is the best noodle house in Denver! The whole place is run by a lovely old couple and I hope they are around forever. Don't miss the pan fried pot stickers! We have had everything on the menu and it is all amazing. Spicy beef tendon soup and cold noodles with sesame sauce are favorites.

Stay away! Went here because J's Noodles next door was closed. Horrible decision! Was treated very poorly, and no, I'm not expecting the best service from a hole in the wall, mom & pop type if place. But if I ask a simple question, or make a simple request, I expect as a customer to be treated at least nicely. Had the cold noodle dish with chicken. Menu stated it came with fresh vegetables, which was really a garnish consisting of a few carrot and cabbage shavings. When I asked for more vegetables, the response was "No!" $10 for a plate of ok noodles & sauce, less than 2 ounces of chicken and practically nonexistent vegetables. To top it off, the entry door was filthy. I shudder to think about what the kitchen looked like.

The owners are very rude and unfriendly. Also foods are tooo expensive. If you want to try some traditional Chinese food, there are tons of nice place better than there.

Hope you like Wheat Flour, Mean Hosts, and Dirty Environs! To start I'm certain there are pros to this eatery. They are certainly 'traditional' (New York Style 'traditional') chinese dumpling makers. My husband sure seemed to enjoy them. They have menus in Chinese characters on the wall. And it is run (apparently %100) by a pair who looks to be in their 80s. But if you are unfortunately wheat-free, there is NOTHING-ZIP-ZERO for you to eat here. All dishes are made with wheat noodles/wheat flour. The meat inside the dumplings/potstickers has wheat flour mixed in. And heaven forbid you should inquire about such, you will be rudely told "all wheat". Be sure to arrive before 12:30, or half the menu items will be gone. There was literally NOTHING I was able to eat on the menu. All my options were 'sold out'. After my first two interactions I afraid to ask for anything else!!!! My husband, white male, they were polite enough to, as they were to the other patrons who spoke chinese to them, but they were just as unfriendly to the lady at the table next to ours as they were to me. I sat and watched my husband eat and was presented with nothing from the two proprietors but nasty looks. Not even a bowl of plain rice. And I suppose if I am still working a restaurant at that age I would probably also find it difficult to keep things clean and sanitary. So in conclusion, if you like "traditional" soup dumplings (xaio long bao), fried potstickers and wheat noodle bowls, this probably is the place for you. However, if you need wheat-free options, (or anything besides the three dishes listed above), passable service, serviceable communication and a clean eatery, GO ELSEWHERE!!!

This place was packed for some reason. And that is usually a good sign. I ordered their signature dish, beef noodle soup. It basically is udon noodles in a greasy broth with 5-6 marinated hunks of steak that were fatty throughout. The price $15! For $5, I can get a great bowl of pho only a few blocks a way with steak, noodles and all the vegetable add ons. Last, the place is dirty and I had to fling two small roaches off my table that I think dropped from the ceiling.
