The young lady at the door and our server, Tracy, were delightful. Yes the wait was long even though we arrived at 5:15. This was due, in part, to the thoughtlessness of a late middle-aged couple who lingered far too long, he on his cell phone and she daydreaming. Yes, they have a right to sit after they eat but when there's a long line on a cold night in a very small place? Have some heart! Anyway, the dumplings weren't anything special. I wonder what all the raves are about. Locally, the Vietnamese appetizers at Cheesecake factory were far superior and nothing beats the dumplings on Mosco Street in Chinatown. Next was the hot and sour soup. My gosh! It was so salty it tasted like water from the Great Salt Lake! If I like salt, I'll add my own, thank you. I can imagine that it might not have been so tasty without all the salt i.e. bland but come on, there are many other creative ways to add flavor, no? For my main dish, I tried the red curry with coconut milk. This was less salty but salt was still the first "flavor" that hit my palate. Great consistency but rather boring. In sum, if you like to be served copious amounts of food, this place gets a plus. If you like interesting, ethnic food this place gets a minus. If you try to stay away from salt for taste or health reasons, stay away. Maybe when you order you could ask the chef to reduce the salt.
