I had both dumplings and noodle soup at this place...very disappointing and tasteless. Stay away from it if you want some good Chinese food.

This used to be my favorite dumpling place but tonight I got legitimately raw dumplings. The internal part is completely uncooked. Absolutely disgusting and a major health code violation... guess I’ll be looking for a new dumpling place

Impromptu visit as we were walking to find lunch while in town for a conference. The food was amazing. Very quick service. Not overly friendly but sufficient.

My meeting is finally over. Had my seafood fix, but have not been to anything Asian. A speaker in our last season recommended this place. It’s very small and very busy, but the service is great. I ordered way more than I can eat, but...I am sure my son will love it.More

Place - not in china town which threw me off a little but it made sense. Food - it was fair to good depending on what you get. It looks like dumplings is their specialty so you may want to stick with it. Service -...it’s fast. They tend to speak Chinese a lot but they do speak English so it should not be a problem. No frills just food. It can get expensive if you do not control how much you order. There was only 2 of us for lunch and it was $70 plus tip. It’s worth a try but not something I will run to go to on a whim.More

Not a big restaurant, no frills, no fuss. Since this is a “Dumpling Palace” we decided to try one of their dumplings. We ordered Mini Juicy Buns with Pork. “Juicy Buns” basically meant soup dumplings. It was a bit on the salty side, but had...a good amount of ginger in it which was nice. The wrapper was nice and chewy, I just wished if it was not so salty… Not the best soup dumplings I’ve had. For main, we ordered Hearty Noodles with Pork & Vegetable and Vegetable Fried Rice. The portion here was HUGE! Even though the soup dumpling was not a hit, we were happy with their food. Not amazing, but good Asian comfort food. So, we actually went back again on a different day to try some other dishes. This time, we ordered Ma Po Tofu and Yang Chow Fried Rice. They were both good, but as for the fried rice, I preferred their vegetable fried rice over the Yang Chow. Most of the staffs here were nice, but I felt like the older staff were only nicer to the Chinese customers and returning regulars… I didn’t feel as welcomed… The food was good, not amazing but good. Comforting and with the huge portions, super affordable.More

My husband and I stopped in here for dinner on a Saturday. The place was packed, but they kept the tables moving so we only had to wait a few minutes. We ordered some dumplings as an app (delicious) and two meals. Prices were reasonable...and the food was great!More

Very good spot. Simple decor and curt service but that's part of the experience and the food is good. Definitely try the dumplings. Bok choy was excellent. Egg drop soup also a great choice.

This place caters more to the Non-vegetarian population. Vegetarians do not have too many options and the only available options are not cooked well enough. The only reason I went here was that this is the only place where we can get Asian food well...past midnight. Food was terrible. I had the Lo Mein Vegetarian noodles, which was bad because they used a version of rice noodles which did not manage to hold the flavors well enough. Would definitely not recommend this to a fellow vegetarian.More

Great location on Massachusetts Ave, near Boylston Ave, this is a very simple restaurant with great authentic Chinese food. Their Orange Chicken was cooked to perfection, spicy flavor also included. I will go back to try a different dish next time. While I was eating...there, people came and go, mostly students from the nearby music college, which means this is a really good place!More
