This restaurant is very busy, the line was long and my first time there I had a bug in my steamed veggie dumplings. But regardless of that the rest of my meal was good. Be prepared to wait a bit to be seated. It's worth the wait! Enjoy...

We frequently dine in Chinatown Boston, week nights and weekend nights. Yet we had skipped this restaurant countless number of times. Recently we decided to give it a chance… and we are really thrilled that we did. The long story short is that we had come back 5 times in the past 2 weeks. Our favorite dishes: 1. Spicy Beef... More

This is the first place we stopped in Boston. Easy walk from our hotel, and since we didn't get into town until 2:30 there was not wait when we got there around 3pm. Ordered a ton of food, and not sure really what since no one spoke english and we were exhausted, but everything we ate was amazing, filling, and... More

I walked by this place many times and it's always busy. This past Sunday around 3pm, when the wait was only 20 minutes, my friends and I decided to give it a try and see what the hypes are all about. We ordered Juicy Pork Dumpling, Salt and Pepper Fish, Minced Pork with Noodle (Northern style) and Scallion pancake. The... More

With so many restaurants in a small area in Boston's Chinatown, there's a reason why people (locals & visitors alike) line up and wait to be seated. The restaurants decor isn't anything special, but the food is amazing! Please start with the mini-dumplings (soup dumplings) it's like won-ton soup in every bite, the BEST YOU'LL EVER HAVE! Next, if you... More

Amazing Chinese take out style food in a sit down setting. Be prepared to wait a good 20-30min. But let me tell you it's worth it. Order all your favorites and bring lots of friends or be prepared to take home a few days supply of leftovers. We love it.

I've tried a few times over my travels to Boston to get into this place but there was always a line outside waiting to get in and I was always pressed for time. I've tried twice around noon and once in the early evening but failed each time. So this last time I tried right before they opened. The Gourmet... More

... why there is a line of people on the sidewalk waiting to get in. The utterly delicious dumplings and buns are just one of them, their entrees are similarly outstanding. The place is packed with people, this is not a place for a romantic tete-a-tete. The Home Style Braised Eggplant with basil, Sauteed Pork Julienne with bamboo tips, and... More

Lots of pekoe get takeout since the seating is really tight. Small pork juicy dumplings are huge and they squirt everywhere! The seafood dumplings were better. This was good but not great - other Chinese better in Chinatown. Service was fine but tables are on top of each other.

I have lived in great Boston area for years, this place is my favorite Chinese restaurant. Small place at Chinatown, around 20 tables, long waiting list at dinner time, last time it took me around 25~30 min to get in, but the food here is totally worth the wait. This is real traditional Chinese food, everything is so tasty. If... More
