Myself and my wife had a very good meal here. Portions are large, food is tasty and the service ok. Food came out as it was ready not necessarily in order of when ordered - which was fine. Decor is cheap and only alcoholic beverage is Chinese beer - neither of these take away from the experience.

I have had some great lunches here and some bland lunches here. I have not been here for dinner and have not deviated from the lunch menu, which is a great deal at around $6 for soup, rice and a decent size main dish. There is no choice of soup for the lunch special, so it isn't always my favorite... More

Tasty, inexpensive, good service. Would definitely go back to to try the dumplings. I had the spring rolls and Singapore noodles.

Haven't been to this restaurant in Chinatown NYC in a bit. Always quite good and always quite affordable. This time around we had the lauded soup dumplings which were exquisite and as juicy as advertised. Our standby, Pork Fried rice... filled with meat and great taste. A duck dish along with a seafood entrée topped off a favorite meal... We... More

I love coming here late night for Dim Sum and I have never had a bed meal. The pork and crab soup dumplings are the best and you can tell that they are made fresh to order. The 'tiny' buns are anything but tiny and you made need two people to finish them off. All of the dishes are wonderful... More

Juicy and tender on the inside!!! We also ordered the General Tso, scallion pancakes, garlic steamed veggies...amazing!!! Would def. recommend! Arrive early for... More

While in New York, we wanted to eat in Chinatown. I did some research and read that this was one of the restaurants to check out. I would say we were pleased. It was very crowded. We could have waited for a table or choose to sit at a larger table with others. We decided to sit with others. The... More

If you take all the good stuff that other reviewers have said about this place and rolled into one review, that was our experience. Service; friendly and quick. Dumplings excellent (including a lesson on how to eat them without wearing them). Food; rapidly delivered and very good. Portions; generous. Price; good for the location. In fact I scored this place... More

So I was walking through Chinatown being a tourist. Saw this sign for best soup dumplings in NYC. I received a friendly greeting and was sat immediately. Hot tea was brought to the table and I ordered the soup dumplings. The staff seemed a little annoyed that this was the only thing I ordered, but it was not busy. The... More
