I've been coming here for years and still enjoy the Shanghai crabmeat soup dumplings ($6.75). The pork soup dumplings are good too ($5.75). But veggie dumplings ($4.75) were meh. And the sticky rice shiu mai ($4.25) was just plain weird. Stick to the first two dumplings. One order per person with an order of fried rice or noodles would make... More

Stepped off the pavement out of the hustle & bustle for a quick lunch. Ordered two serves of dumplings, the Shanghai were excellent the others I thought were a bit old... I ordered some green tea to as I didn't need any beers or wine. So service was pretty good but it was busy. Only problem was when I got... More

We popped in for a couple of dumplings. After ordering other couples arrived and ordered. These people were done eating before our food even arrived. When the waitress came by she offered my boyfriend a complimentary beer but ignored me. Rude staff, average food and long wait. Would not recommend this to anyone. And also - you can only pay...

I came here by coincidence. I was walking by and saw lunch specialty for cheap price. I loved quLiof food and service, even though portions of that specialty were very small. Soup was extraordinary. Main this very good. Aftrr I tried dim sum.. It was great! Must visit, worth it

Soup dumpling highlight. Lots of interesting dishes. Full bar with good service. They also treated our large group like royalty. We will return.

Lovely, good value, pleasant service and really popular. We had spring rolls, soup dumplings, fried pork and chicken dumplings and steamed vegetable dumplings... Lovely! The table next to us were more eclectic and had roast duck,mixed vegetables and crispy duck... It all looked fab! Worth a drop in!

You don't have to eat at a dirty, smelly restaurant in China town for it to be amazing. This spot is great. The dishes are huge, big enough for 2, but do order a few things and share. Don't miss out on their amazing dumplings!

Recomended by many european and north american guide. great Dim Sum dumplings. Good atmosphere and service. good price. but... they added an 18% service charge without asking for a table of two... i find this totally innapropriate.

Soup dumplings are totally awesome, try them here! We had the pork, the other dishes were pretty good but next time I will eat completely off the dim sum menu.

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.
