The dumplings are fantastic, and you can't beat the price. The line can get long but the woman gets the orders cranked out quickly (and you can help by being ready to order with cash in hand). I had forgotten how good they were until I saw the restaurant pop up on a TV show - will definitely return during... More

Stopped in here while on a tour of SoHo, Chinatown and Little Italy. We were warned that the lady who worked inside was like the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld - and she absolutely was - but it was totally worth it. This is a very little shop where the line basically snakes in the door and right back out it.... More

Can't say they are the best, but for this price you get decent pork dumplings and the lady hardly speak English! Great touristy experience!

This place does dumplings that taste incredible and are very reasonably priced. They are also one of the few places in New York to give you your change in Dumplings. I can't stop going back. Perfect snacking for any occasion.

We recently took a tour of Chinatown and were told this place had great fried dumplings and they were right. 5 dumplings for 1.25 is a good deal. When I gave the lady who worked there $2 she just gave me 8 dumplings instead of giving me my change (without asking). Not a big deal, but we were warned by... More

Wow---hard to locate but worth the effort. Best and fastest dumplings ever!!! $1.25 for five dumplings-yes that is a bargain. This is not a restaurant but a stand up or counter place to eat on the run.

In New York City for the 5 borough bike ride, my wife and I were wandering around Chinatown and was looking for a quick bite to eat. We stopped a NYC policeman and asked him where we could get some good dumplings. He gave us directions to Fried Dumpling. What a place and the food was cheap and very, very... More

I love coming here when I just want a quick bite. For two dollars, you get eight fried dumplings that are freshly made and are served very quickly to you. It is by no means fancy but the service is friendly and the food is good. The dumplings are fried correctly, full of ground seasoned pork and crisp and juicy... More

The best dumplings in this part of New York. Pick up some on the go as you explore the area. Go for a mix of the different dumplings.

I was afraid from the reviews that we would encounter a hateful little lady who snatched dollar bills from unsuspecting tourists hands. That's wasn't the case. You get 5 dumplings for $1.25. Apparently it used to be $1 but she informed me it was a quarter more. Would definitely recommend as a quick snack on the go!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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 many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
