“Basic but good”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

ONLY serve dumplings with 2 basic types of toppings. It was tasty, but not quite as delicious as we had hoped. So a good place to go for something different, but once you go can say been there done that.

“If you are only going to do one thing, do it well, He Does!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

One of the smallest restaurants I have ever eaten in and for sure the shortest menu but don't judge but those two things. judge by the TWO THINGS they have on the menu. Made by hand in house, Russian Style Dumplings. Meat or Potato or a Mix. I got the mix with the works, butter, yellow curry, sweet chili, cilantro and sour cream. Also ordered the one and only side, rye bread. Full order $6.50 and that includes the tax. Bread $.50, Soda $1.00. Place is clean, with one person running the place service was great. You may have to stand in line as we did with our group of six for a few minutes but like I said it is a very small place. The dumplings were excellent. They also have carry out available. There is nothing not to like here! Try It!

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

This place is in a busy area and easy to miss but is worth the stop. Meat dumplings are inexpensive and taste amazing. Get the works on them.

“So happy it's back!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

Meat and potato dumplings are delicate and filling. Dumplings are all they do, and they're the best at it. For less than $5, the most comforting meal imaginable. A great addition to the state street fare.

“Awesome Dumplings”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I remember a place back in the day that we called the Russian Dumpling Place. I didn't know it the first couple times I went since they opened back up that it is the same owner. There are only two options, which seems like a slim choice, but it does not matter. They are soo good that you don't want anything else. Add the works and you have an absolute perfect quick meal! Quick, and delicious, and at $6.50 for a full order, it;s a steal.
