Good and crowdy

We visited during rush hours and the place was crowded, yet the quick service made it possible. We had the soup dumplings which were good. Than a fried rice with no taste at all... Overall good experience but you can find cheaper and better food around.

We go everytime we travel to NYC. This time the staff was nasty. The bathrooms were filthy and the food was marginal. If you want the house specialty which is steamed dumplings - ask for dumplings in soup, not steamed, or you will get bland, mushy dumplings thrown on a plate. So disappointing.

This place was so different from what we were expecting, first the neighborhood feels like walking through Beijing street and then there is that place with delicious dishes ! The staff is not really friendly but the food is great and the portions are huge, go there we will travel!

We sought this place out based on recommendations and weren't disappointed. I've heard some so-so-stories about their other dishes, but we stuck entirely to dumplings and they were all fantastic.

I would have rated this five 'stars,' but the sweet and sour chicken was so nasty that even four 'stars' is a bit generous. Appetizers: We ordered plenty of pork soup dumplings as an appetizer, and they were delicious--I mean, just plain fab. The key is to dive in, bite off the top, and then sip out the broth. Do...

There was a huge line when we got there. We went and got a number and waited until it was called. It was worth waiting outside and getting rained on. The soup dumplings are delicious. Also had the green beans and fried meat.

Go for the soup dumplings. Yes, wait in the ridiculously long line (it moves fast). Don't expect to stretch out, this is a very busy and very cramped restaurant, but the soup dumplings alone make it worth it!

We stopped by Joe's for yummy soup dumplings. The restaurant was crowded despite it being 2:30pm. They seated us at a large round table with another group -- this isn't the place for a romantic date -- and served us fabulous soup dumplings, scallion pancakes, and a delicious shrimp/broccoli dish that the waiter suggested when we asked for a recommendation....

Party of 4 ate there this evening, July 1, 2015, based on reviews on TripAdvisor. Excellent find on the Soup Dumplings. Tasty and unique. We watched the YouTubes on how to eat and nobody scalded their mouth with exploding soup. Should have ordered a few more and stopped. Shared a few non-memorable items. Shanghai noodles were extremely greasy. Don't order.... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
