Got two kinds of boiled dumplings. They were pretty good. Didn't realize we had to pay 2 RMB for each place setting. Service was relatively quick.

We ate a lot of dumplings along our travels through China; Mr. Shi's was among, if not the best! Why Mr. Shi's? Variety, quality, and deliciousness! We ordered a banquet of assorted steamed and fried dumplings and felt no guilt. The curry dumplings were exceptionally...More
