A little further away from the heart of Chinatown, this is towards the Tenement museum, community style eating, sauces, chatter. I had the pork and chives dumplings, dunked them in soy, and it was a great start to the day. Best part, all for 2$!...A must try.More

My daughter was looking for a place for cheap dumpling in ChinaTown and came up with this place. We ordered 20 dumplings and paid something like $4 and they were fantastic! The place itself is all character - sit beside anyone and anywhere there's a...chair, everyone is happy to be there. We were happily eating the dumplings and the gal next to us was having this creamy noodle dish. She said is fantastic. We were actually full from the dumplings so we passed. Later that night we looked up the place and found out from other sites that these peanut butter noodles are to die for. We actually got off the subway (a five min walk from the Delancy St-Essex station) just to try the noodles (for $2.50!!) and yes, they were fantastic and worth the effort.More

So pleasantly surprised. I walked in honestly not expecting much from this place. It's a tiny, hole in the wall restaurant. Nothing special as far as outward appearances or even indoor. I ordered chive and pork, cabbage and pork and wheat noodles with peanut sauce....I'd recommend all three and I'd totally go back. It cost me $8.50 for all of that for two of us, plus it filled me up. Cash only! The chive and pork was my favorite. The noodles were perfectly cooked and the peanut sauce isn't too strong, be sure to mix up the noodles before eating so you can taste the sauce in each bite. Definitely give this place a chance.More

Don't let the exterior fool you. On the outside this restaurant doesn't give you the feeling that you could eat some of the best dumplings you have ever tasted. But that is exactlly what happened. I stepped inside and first thing i noticed is that...you can see the cooks prepairing the food and the kitchen was clean. I had pork and chives dumplings and they were extremely cheap and tasted great! They were light (not one bit greasy) and they were also easy on the stomach which is a rare thing for me when i am eating pork. Like i said the exterior and also the dinning area of the restaurant is definetely not the best and deserves a lower rating. However, clean kitchen and the greatest dumplings i ever had make this place a 5* restaurant for me. You should give it a try.More

We wanted dumplings but we weren’t sure what to order. A friendly local told us to get the pork and cabbage dumplings and the noodles with peanut sauce. She was right! They were amazing. This is a small, no frills place with great food.

If you are looking for authentic and not too picky about the ambience... you must go here. Granted, the food is served on throw away plates, the utensils ( if you aren’t using chopsticks) are plastic, but the food is REAL! Truly a must visit...place.More

Big fan of this place. The peanut noodles and the boiled dumplings are the way to go. Don't expect much in terms of the venue. Can be cramped and dirty. But the food is cheap and delicious.

The dumplings were good,I'll give the place that much. This is a cramped, dingy little diner that serves dumplings and a limited number of noodle dishes. I ordered dumplings, pork ball (wonton) soup, and noodles with peanut sauce based on the number of positive reviews...on here. The soup was okay- the pork balls were tasty, but the broth was watery. I was sadly disappointed by noodle dish--bland starchy noodles with watered down peanut butter on a styrofoam plate. The food seems a bargain until you realize that you are literally eating noodles and peanut butter. When you're finished eating you toss your trash in a huge black garbage bag sitting in the back corner, which where I wish I'd thrown it all instead of eating it. You can get better dumplings elsewhere.More
