We went to the original location on Hudson St. Very cozy (aka small), but the creativity from the kitchen carries over into the use of space in the front of the house as well. The place was busy, but we still walked in and got a table on a Saturday night (they dont take reservations). We shared a number of small plates and Dim Sum, and everything tasted really good.
It is a very unique take on asian cuisine. I would almost describe it as Asian comfort food. All the dumplings we had were really creative and delicious. I reccomend sharring as there are so many unique items to try (Pasatrami Egg Rolls, and Duck and Shrimp Dumplings). The further away from normal the menu gets the better stuff tastes. So while the Pork Buns, and Crispy Beef were certainly tasty, I would reccomend going for the more uniqe menu items. They also had some really delicious drinks (alcaholic and especially non-alcaholic). Desert wasnt quite on par with the rest of the meal, so dont feel like you need to save room.
Also, despite the fact the restraunt was full, we had really great service. Everyone was friendly, attentive, and everything came out very quickly.
The only thing I didnt love was the communal seating. There are a few small booths, but go expecting to sit next to a stranger. The Hudson Street location is so small, I dont think they would be able to do it any other way, so I forgive them.
