The restaurant was quite busy on a Friday afternoon. The pork dumplings were pretty good; but we thought the ones with crab were odd. First, you can't tell there is crab inside. But more importantly, the broth tasted like fermented bean curd which was overpowering...More

We had the vegetarian steamed dumplings and a red bean pancake for our late lunch. Both were excellent. Mostof the clientele were Chinese from the hood. We were proud of ourselves and you can be too.
