Soup dumplings are good - fun, something different, but not at all delicate. We really enjoyed the beef with fried rice cakes which are like thick, round, sliced noodles. You'll share tables with others. Service is more efficient than friendly. There are better Chinese places...More

Recommended by a friend, so we had to give it a go. We had to wait approximately 15 minutes for a table, which was okay, as we had a seat. The soup dumplings were outstanding, and well worth the walk to get there.

We came here on a recommendation. We ordered the fried pork dumplings and scallop cake. Both were good in portion and very good in taste. The water glasses smell like seafood. DO NOT DRINK. Bring your own bottled water there.

We saw a line outside so thought that it might be good - but were very disappointed. The "famous" soup dumplings were just okay. I lived in Asia for 10 years and ate at Taiwan's Ding Tai Feng many times - which are arguably the...More

We had a short wait to get seated at Joe’s. We were seated at a large round table with 6 other people that we didn’t know. It was pretty loud and tight. We ordered the dumplings which I had read were great but we weren’t...More

We arrived there following recommendations. Crowded, noisy, full of tourists and locals. We shared a table with other turists. Good dumplings but nothing exceptional. Fast service, a place to eat and leave. They ensure that removing the plates and adding new ones while you're still...More

We loved the hustle/bustle atmosphere of the place but this certainly made our waiter rush us slightly with ordering. This was a little off putting but we were firm with wanting more time to look at the menu despite him telling us there’s a 35...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

I believe you are correct about that location, but I was referring to the one in Chinatown. We prefer the Chinatown location best, as it gives you an excuse to get a great foot rub while you visit!

It is pretty cramped in there and the bathrooms are back by the kitchen. There are usually boxes stacked up in that hallway, making it more congested. My suggestion would be to go at opening, like we did and it is less... More

I don't think they take réservations and it must be crowded at lunch during the week. For the lunch menu I do not know but I suspect they don't have one
