Best dumplings ever, pork and broth wrapped in dough. If you love crab, those are delicious too. I order too much of both always. Only place I eat, every time My hubby and I go downtown Flushing.

They call them soup dumplings, little beggar pouches filled with pork, and broth served in a bamboo steamer. They have Chinese beer, and many other traditional foods. I like that they have Chinese broccoli, you don’t get that on long island. Fast paced always very busy, The dumplings are great to share and very filling.

I've had soup dumplings in Asia and these are every bit as good. Similar to Din Tai Fung. Google instructions for eating the dumplings.

Soup dumplings came fast and were sub par. They seemed already made and maybe just microwaved. There are better options in Queens. Also a bit expensive for the quality. I heard it used to be much better, but has fallen from the top.

Living on past reputation when there were few options in NYC. Mediocre XLB, appetizers tasteless, baby bok choy were adult-size & tasteless. Service to match :( Much better quality on Prince St.

Great soup dumplings and a very complete menu. If you like authentic Chinese dishes, you'll love this place. That said, the ambiance is frantic. Don't go here for an elegant, stately dinner. You will have to dine as the locals do, which is pretty good on its own terms.

Great food every time. The soup dumplings are the best around! You need to get there early or else there is usually a wait. We have always enjoyed every dish we order there. The Subgum Pan Fried Noodles is excellent. All of kinds of meat and vegetables in a tasty brown sauce. It is a bit of a small place... More

Love this place and the soup dumplings so delicious. I also really enjoyed the plum chicken and Chinese salad. Sadly the only negative for me was the tight seating as the place is pretty small inside. I would highly recommend this as a 5 star just wish it was bigger.

Thank mkuinlan
