“Great Dumplings - must visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Pork and chive dumplings @ 4 for $1 are top notch. Very generic (but still quality) dumplings and definitely for the masses. Style of dumplings varied a bit from my personal preferences but still I strongly recommend a visit. Insane value. Excellent condiment selection.

“Worth the walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Deep in the heart of Chinatown which is very crowded and not many non-Asians but the best dumplings and believe it or not but smoothies with gelatin squares! We will do it again next trip.

“Amazing Bargain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

OK, so this place is pretty famous. Mostly because it's insanely cheep. Like a plate of dumplings for a buck. ( actually forgot the price, but it's cheep) and going on bang for the buck it's really the best deal in all NY. That said, other than the price I do not think the dumplings are anything special. The one thing that really is excellent are the scallion pancakes. Much better than the dumplings these doughy scallion pancakes topped with pork are the bomb, and of course also super cheep.
