    If the wait is too long, go inside past the main desk to the Take Out Window. It only takes 20 min and you can eat outside downstairs.

    Veggie dumplings are great for vegetarians here. There are 2 kinds; get the one with more units; fun to share! Limited in vegetarian selection; the vegetarian rice cake dish isn't worth it.

    Wontons in chili oil, pork buns, soup dumplings are a must. For veggies, can't go wrong with green beans

    I think I could eat the XLB for every meal. The sautéed vegetables are great too. Keep an eye out for bar seating as it's first come first serve and the normal wait line is almost always over an hour.

    This is delicious, the price is good, but this is not the best dumpling at all and I'm not that even a dumpling connoisseur. I just found weird why this place is so busy.So grab a place at the bar.

    Ridiculously good Dumpling house in University Village. Service is top notch. Get the soup filled dumplings. Also the pot stickers are the real deal. And if very hungry get the pork buns.

    Obviously you're getting the pork soup dumplings, but you better ALSO be getting the sautéed string beans and the sesame spare ribs. Trust me. I've eaten enough for you to believe that I speak truth.

    Alas, as with most 4.5+ rated Seattle restos I think would barely make a 3.2 in NY, I've come to expect mediocrity from the food in this city and this place is no different. Give me Flushing any day.

    The freshest handmade dumpling you can get around town. Well known for its international franchise, you are in for a great service. Their truffle dumplings is a must try since you can't get it in Asia

    Din Tai Fung is super popular for dumplings for good reason. It's not uncommon to see big crowds waiting outside for dinner because the dumplings are worth the wait. Takeout was a little slow

    Get the Pork XLB. The fried pork chops are succulent, and the presentation for the potstickers is very unique. Bit expensive, but worth it

    How to eat soup dumplings: Grab gently by the thick knot on top, place in spoon and bite off the knot. After steam escapes, suck out the broth. Garnish empty dumpling with ginger and sauce. Eat :D

    Have one person sit in line, while everyone else enjoys the hour of their life it takes to get a table. If alone, just sit at the bar for no wait.
