I love coming to Fried Dumpling. The dumplings are excellent and so well cooked. The cook/owner was having a special on Chinese New Year, either that or it was a marketing ploy. She was selling 17 dumplings for $5.00 or 30 for $10.00. I opted...for the 17. I never thought I could eat 17 dumplings but I made my way to the nearby park and devoured all of them in about ten minutes. These delicious little dumplings were perfectly fried in oil and were crisp on the outside and tender on the inside and had the nice flavor of pork and chives. They are just excellent. The woman that does all the cooking is a real character and does such a nice job in her store.More

I just happened upon this little gem and so happy I did! Not only are the dumplings scrumptious but it's entertaining too. The woman who waited on me barely spoke English, pretty much told me what I was going to have and barked the amount...at me. Hilarious! I loved it and loved the yummy tasty dumplings. You must visit this hole in the wall Fried Dumpling establishment! You won't be sorry, I promise!More

Very simple menu. Pretty much Dumplings and that’s it. But they are good and cheap. A small counter to sit and eat at. Probably room for about 5 people. It was quiet when I went. I ate waaaaay too many. Cos they were yummy. Cheapest...lunch I had on my whole trip.More

My daughter discovered this place. She loves dumplings and was on a tight budget. Apparently there can be queues. The menu is succinct and the prices are right. The two women run a tight ship and you can buy frozen dumplings to cook at home.

I have literally been going to Fried Dumpling for over 10 years now. The quality is the same and I can not visit NYC without a visit or two to this delicious little nook in Chinatown. The dumplings are too die for and have remained...consistently so for as long as I can remember.More

We found this fried dumpling place while we walked around New York City! Amazing dumplings and you cannot beat the price!! We actually visited three times, but one night they closed early due to the weather. Definitely recommend stopping by and grabbing $3 for 10!...Perfect inexpensive meal and they taste great!!More

Absolutely wonderful authentic Chinese food! We loved the steamed dumplings and our chicken with ramen! Staff is friendly and accommodating! The food is cheap and tasty. We will come back when in NYC.

We went to this place especially because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. It was thanksgiving day around 8pm, the place looked empty with the exception of 2 people. We wanted to order some fried dumplings and beef buns. Alas they ran out of beef...buns so we were trying to decide how many dumplings we’d like. Whilst we were thinking, the lady(owner) kept on pressuring us. I tried to communicate with her in English but she told me that she does not speak English! How can she not speak any English, living in New York and having run the business for so long is beyond me. Anyway we bought the dumplings as a take- out and ate them in the hotel. The price is amazing , so cheap , perhaps that’s why it has good reviews. Truthfully The quality is less than desired! The meat filling inside the dumplings is so little, all you are eating is the dumpling skin. (Dough). They also tasted bland. Sadly if I was in New York again, I will not be paying this shop another visit.More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
