“Good price and fast eat in Tribeca/Chinatown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Rest your feet from shopping and sightseeing--this has been a never failing lunch and quick bite rest stop for me for over 20 years. Try dumplings--all style and great Singapore chow fun. Note the address and cross street--You'll Be Back!

“make sure u walk into the correct restaurant ;)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

we found reviews on tripadvisor and walked into the right (wrong) restaurant. the address is a bit confusing. 111 Lafayette has two restaurants and the left one is the correct one.
yes.... dumplings are that excellent, the chinese pancakes delicious, the fried noodles yummi!
service is ok, but if you see how many are coming and going into this restaurant you'd understand why they (of course) welcome you but also would prefer you leave quickly as well!
business is going great for them. still the staff is friendly and once again (as a Chinese) the food is fantastic and quite cheap!
so go and enjoy the dumplings among lots of other delicious chinese cuisine.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

I have made several visits to this resturant in China Town, New York. This place is very clean, has good staff, short wait time, and the best food including dumplings imaginable, all for a minimal cost. Its a must for anyone who loves authentic chinese food.

“Best Scallion Pancakes in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Best scallion pancakes I have ever found in 10 yrs in NYC. Terrible atmosphere, service is brusque at best but they aren't mean. Wonton soup is great. Love this place!

“Very average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Not sure why this cafe deserves all the praise here on Trip Advisor, After a long cold walk right across Chinatown we found the food to be very average and certainly not deserving of such a high rating.
