The dumplings were delicious as is the sauce they arrive in. Curry not so much. The cold noodles (while I prefer them warm) were also delicious. Small bites, but delicious for a snack or decent lunch.

The food is reasonably priced but the quality of the meat dishes was rather poor. I ordered the chicken curry and all of the chicken was dark meat and rather chewy. My brother had one of the vegetarian dishes and that one was okay but...More

Great little hole in the wall kind of place with amazing street food. The dumplings were incredible, as everyone has said, the pork buns tasty, and the sesame noodles were delicious. They weren't as "sesame" as I would have liked, more "peanuty" but super good...More

I LOVE these dumplings, and what I REALLY LOVE is the soy sauce they come with - it is very unique, thicker and richer than any other dumpling sauce I have had. I also love the sesame noodles. That being said, I don't even live...More

The dumplings (fried) are a local cult favorite. I’ve probably eaten several hundred over the years. Absolutely great quick snack like lunch or before the early showing of a movie. The noodles are great as well, with a spicy sesame kick to them. It’s really,really...More
