Great food, got like 12 dumplings, cup of soup and waters for $7. Should have been $5.50, so not too terrible. Lady had argument with customer while we ate as she overcharged her by $12. Listened to about three others order and get charged about double for their orders.

I found this place on the NYC foodguys vlog and I was not disappointed. My 3 friends and I all got a plate of 6 dumplings each for $2!!! For such a simple dish, they have perfected it! We were all craving them the rest of the holiday and I wish we had gone back. If you're looking for a... More

Great dumplings. Just don't argue with the chef. Order what you want, like what you get. Seriously, a must go in Chinatown.

Think of the Fried Dumpling as the Soup Nazi for dumplings. The woman behind the counter is no-nonsense, and abrupt. It's 5 dumplings for $2, and it's cash only, small bills highly recommended. The place only has like 5 stools, so plan to get it to go and go eat it in the park a few steps away. When I... More

My husband, a friend and I each had a plate of dumplings (6 each) for $2 a plate. These dumplings were delicious, one of my favorite dishes, so I am picky about them, and these exceeded my expectations. The dumplings are steamed and fried, the flavor is great but beware of the grease, some more than others, you may want... More

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

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
