One of my family members had a craving for dumplings so this is where we went. He was right. All the entrees were good. The crispy fried noodles were a hit. The tofu and mushroom dish was interesting. Service was fast. Definitely want to go back and try the other plates.

The spicy dumplings and the pork dumplings were delicious. The vegetable and rice dishes were super! Service is ok, but, no WiFi?!? They have THREE wifi accounts and they won't share one password!:-(( I guess they don't want you to linger and enjoy the atmosphere. So enjoy, but be ready to eat'n'run.

Best food for the price. Great dumplings. Fried rice, noodles, and many other things. My favorite is black skin chicken soup with ginseng on a cold winter night. Compare to ding tai fung, it's definitely less pricey. Dumpling at ding tai fung is more refined. Here is B+. Guaranteed good foods and great values. I come here before 6pm to... More

If you're looking a cheap place to dine for a Juicy pork dumpling, this is the place to be. The place is always packed. For a quick and cheap xlb, you have to try them. Great service and good food.

Mama Lu is a very informal Chinese restaurant and has great soup dumplings. Their pumpkin tempura is really good if you are vegetarian - for $7, good portion. I love their complementary peanuts and pickled cucumber. We usually order the soup dumplings ($6 for 9), with burrito wrap with meat fillings which is also very tasty($6). The orders come out...

We went there for lunch. The restaurant opens at 10:30. We got there a few minutes before it open and people already waiting. The restaurant is not very big and fill up quickly. You should get there early to avoid waiting. Most dishes are reasonably priced and comes with large portion. The Xiao Long Bao was very good. The beef... More

great Indonesian fried rice and dumplings. Beef soup was least successful. Noodle dishes were all good.

The dumplings are really good, but a warning to those with peanut and sesame allergies. The dumplings are not peanut and sesame free and will cause a reaction in those with allergies.
