Good food

Chinese food galore, lots of choices. Small place, always full, but fast service. Love the steam dumplings, ate 4x during our stay. No frills but good food.

Pretty good soup dumpling, delicious chicken soup in individual small bowl. Wonton soup is pretty good too. They serve the typical Chinese breakfast Shao-bing Yew-Tiao, and soy milk.

This place was not that easy to find for non local. We had to circle around the mall many times to find it. Finally, we arrived at 9:20 pm - 40 minutes before closing on a cold rainy Monday night. The restaurant was completely empty. The kitchen had already prepared to close. The kitchen was reopened for just two of... More

Great service, we were served very quickly. Not all the dishes were available but the ones we ordered were delicious. Especially the spicy beef soup and the beef pancake. Cash Only.

When you travel, you always have to look in the nooks and crannies of the town you are in. If you don't look in the back streets of Flushing, New York, you will never find the best soup dumplings quite possibly in all of New York. Nanxiang Xiao Long Bao's restaurant name says it all - Nanxiang style soup dumplings.... More

As most people said, this is an amazing place, inexpensive, tasty and fresh. We ordered the cucumber in garlic (really nice), pork and crab soup dumping (excellent); the dumpling in a chili sauce (very good and not spicy), seafood udon, pork dumpling (amazing). It's crowded and there is a line (we arrived there on a saturday at 1PM and even... More

It's always good to see the businesses you frequent prosper. This little eatery had one room when I started going there. They had lines. They planed to expand to Little Neck, the address of the new shop was even printed on the envelop of the chopsticks. I was quite looking forward to it. But they didn't. Instead they took over...

Best xlb's in NYC! And the noodle soups and soups are great as well. I'm even a fan of the scallion pancakes. I can't get enough of this place. Just try to come during 'off peak' hours otherwise the line is out the door. Although table turnover is pretty high, if you can come outside of peak hours, that's just... More

If I could have I'd have gone back for dinner I would have. My lunch was simply the best. Stated with cucumber in a lovely garlicky sauce. Never had anything like it before. It was fragrant with bits of garlic and cilantro. I want the recipe! Next was the Steamed pork and crab soup dumplings. The smell of crab was... More
