Ordered pork XLB pork Napa dumplings HK style wontons sesame noodles and steamed veg The stewed beef noodle is tasty but very few beef pieces, XLB steamed veg and dumplings are good. I like the packings for takeout. They separate the soup from the noodles....Plenty of condiments to go around I ordered for the food to be delivered to the hotel and realize it is only blocks from the hotel and decided to pick it up in person.More

Wonderful noodles and dumplings at a very reasonable price. The storefront and the restaurant interior don't look like much, but don't let the look deceive you. We went with friends and tried a number of dishes. For the most part, they were excellent. We tried...the special spicy mixed noodles, Hui Tou (finger-like dumplings stuffed with pork), pork shumai dumplings, xiao long bao (wonderful, soup-filled dumplings), pork & leek pancakes, and potstickers. All were delicious. The only dish I didn't care for was the marinated tofu skins. The service is fast and efficient. The food arrives quickly in the order in which it was prepared. I wish a place as good as this would open closer to my home. If so, I'd be a regular customer.More

This little Northern Chinese noodle house is our family's favorite. It is hidden in a small plaza on busy Las Tunas Dr. The top on the list is its Pan fried Vegetarian Leek Pancakes , more appropriately called pockets. One order has eight pockets, golden...brown outside and tasty chopped chives fillings inside. The other popular teams are Pork or beef filings HuiTou (fingers shaped dumplings) and steamed dumplings. A family of four Will be comfortably full with under $50.00 cost. A real bargain in today's eating out culture. J. Sin ,San Gabriel, CaliforniaMore

Hui Tou Xiang stands out - even in a valley practically carpeted with dumplings of one sort or another. Their eponymous Hui Tou dumplings are juicier and porkier and more filled with glorious broth than even many of the Valley's most famous Xiao Long Bao....Their cucumber salad is cool and refreshing. Their wood ear dish is simple and clean, allowing you to appreciate the subtle flavors of the mushrooms. Xiao Long Bau here also quite good. But the star, well worth the visit, is their Hui Tou dumpling. It's sort of in the shape of a golden ingot: good luck for anyone willing to stop in.More

Service is good here and the dumplings are great. We also order the onion pancake. It is very small, with just a few tables, but we have never had a problem getting seated for lunch. It is in a strip mall, a somewhat rundown area,...and the parking is now very difficult because some of it got taken away by some adjacent construction which is ongoing. We often have to park on the street nearby.More

Love coming here. The hui tou dumplings are rectangular shaped dumplings that are pan fried and really juicy. The xiao long baos are good here too. We always get the noodles with pork soup too. Also love the kim chi appetizer they give you. I...like it better than any other kim chi I've had any place else. Tiny little place, about six booths and three tables. Can fill up quickly.More
