Pretty much what I expected from this highly rated chain - very good dumplings and excellent service. I went twice in the span of about ten days and had very good meals both times. Truth to tell, the only dumplings I've had that surpass these are the ones made by my wife and my mother-in-law. Neither read this forum, so I am not playing to the home crowd by any means, just giving the facts as I see them. I actually expected these to be better than homemade, based on the glowing reports from NYT and the like, but that was not my experience. I meant to try the Kowloon branch as well but didn't have time during this trip. Maybe next time.
