We initially wanted to go to Beijing Dumplings but they were so rude and ignored us so we tried this place. It is a busy restuarant where they want to turn the tables quickly so bear that in mind. If you want a quiet relaxed...More

Thank you, Rick Steves, for recommending this restaurant in your book. These were the best dumplings either of us ever ate. This busy, clean eatery delights with a glassed-in kitchen of dumpling-makers. Tables have white table cloths, service is brisk and the restaurant is packed...More

I'm surprised by all the negative comments on the service. Terrible service has never been my experience here. It's not personal by any means. You have to remember that it's a tourist hot spot with a fast turnaround but it's never been bad. I'd say...More

The service ruins the entire experience. Good food but typical of Chinatown restaurants, they talk at you and are miserable if you ask for anything remotely out of order. I asked for a different table, because I did not want to sit staring at the...More
