    These are decent dumplings, pricier compared to other dumpling houses. The pumpkin dumplings are the dessert to get. They also sell frozen dumplings. Cash only but they do have an ATM machine.

    Totally underrated dumpling spot in the city. It's quaint and has top notch hand made dumplings. I LOVED the soup dumplings. They had a little less broth than I'm used to - still great favor though.

    Came here for some late night food -- left with a full stomach and great memories. The atmosphere if this place is great for a lunch or late night experience..

    Even though I'm dedicated to my Chinatown dumplings, these were delicious. I got pork and pumpkin. If you're into pumpkin pie and are adventurous, try it! Can't go wrong with pork either. 😋

    I'm convinced the creator of Snapchat lived across the street because their logo is very similar to Dumpling Man's. This spot has very solid dumplings but also try their cold sesame noodles.

    The seared pork dumplings with the cool monster sauce almost makes me wish I lived in ny so I could eat them all the time. Even broke you can still afford this place with dumplings under $1 a piece

    The pumpkin dumplings are great and I don't even eat pumpkin. Loved the pork dumplings with the green curry sauce. Pay extra and get that sauce. You won't regret it!

    Quick, cheap and amazing. Shrimp dumplings are my favorite with corn in them. Very cool to sit and watch them being made

    Everything here is made fresh, right where you can see it. Try an order of 6 dumplings of their famous seared pork , fried or steamed for $4.50. Talk about cheap, delish eats!

    Great for a dumpling binge followed by a very long nap. Huge juicy dumplings made by tiny Chinese grandmothers on the other side of the glass. Don't forget monster sauce!

    $3.50 afterschool special!! 6 seared dumplings, mmm...shrimp are awesome, veggie are unusual cause of tofu but good. Young guy in beanie who works there is rude to girls. Shy?? Sexist? Ha!

    I often direct day plans to the LES, just so I can "casually" wind up here. Best dumplings in NYC. You can watch the love being pleated into these hearty pillows of goodness. Hot monster sauce it up.

    Gotta late night crave for dumplings? This spot will do. Though overpriced compared to Chinatown, they're tasty dumplings & buns. The soup dumplings lacked broth. Not the best, spot but good overall.

    Get the traditional pork dumplings there and bring home some frozen dumplings for home. The hot monster and cold monster sauces really add a lot of flavor.

    Got the sampler, all phenomenal. They only have bubble tea in the summer. Cool monster and Asian tahini sauce both very good but $1.50? And $.50 take out charge...

    Surprise veggie trumps regular veg dumplings. FYI: M-F from 3-5 pm they only have regular dumplings available, and only fried. No steamed, no surprise dumplings. But they are only $3.50 for 6.

    soup dumplings don't compare to Joe's Shanghai, but everything else is really spot on. If you are hungry and its lunch-time, I would suggest 8-10 and mix it up re: seared and steamed.

    Pork dumplings. Steamed. Good thing I live in Queens or I'd eat them for every meal. They're affordable too so I'd probably save money by doing this...

    Best dumplings in the city? Almost certainly, but only one way to be sure. When you finish the circuit, some celebratory Dumpling Man is sure to be in order.

    Awesome dumplings. But for some reason, they will call out your number to avoid eye contact, even if the place is empty. Joe's Shanghai has better soup dumplings.
