    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.

    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

    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..

    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.

    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 Dumpling Man advantage, owner Lucas Lin said, is not only that the dumplings are made fresh but that he uses the ‘hot noodle’ method traditionally favored in Beijing and elsewhere in the north." Read more

    $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!

    A TINY little restaurant with homemade dumplings made minutes before they're cooked to order just for you. (And you can watch them being made!) Get the steamed pork w/cool monster sauce! Yum!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    The chicken dumplings were delicious, the veggie dumplings were very very bland. Definitely not the best dumplings even in lower Manhattan, but I did like the price- for the chicken ones.

    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...

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

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Good if you want a variety of dumplings in one sitting. Not my favorite soup dumplings. Get the hot Monster Sauce.

    The tehina sauce is amazing. I ordered 14 dumplings for dinner and it was too much, so perfect for lunch the next day. Quick service too

    14 dumplings is too many for lunch. Go with 8 (2 shrimp 2 pork 2 veggie 2 chicken) and splitty splitty on 4 soup dumplings with a pal who's down.

    Dumplings man had always been a favorite for me in the village. Open late, cheap and great veggie dumplings. The sauces are good but unnecessary

    Don't skip the green Vegan dumplings! The mushroom and tofu filling is better than meat. http://insidenewyork.com/2012/02/26/dumpling-man-not-your-mothers-dumplings/

    A bit overrated, but the pork dumplings are solid. The veggie ones were really bland. Go down to Chinatown for your dumpling cravings though if you can.

    Try the dessert dumplings. I know what you're thinking, but fight that naysaying, party-pooping skepticism and get the sweet banana dumpling.

    Order 10 Dumplings (Pork and Chicken, preferrably, but the vege ones are excellent), mix some really strong sriracha and dumpling sauce, enjoy.

    The dumplings are awesome here. And the sweetie pies, or pumpkin dumplings, are the perfect dessert.

    get the tahini sauce and mix in a little sriracha. you'll want to keep eating the sauce by itself once you finish your dumplings.

    Cash only. These were among the best dumplings I've ever had and I'm like the Cookie Monster... But with dumplings... Instead of cookies...

    Sit at the counter of this hole-in-the-wall and watch the dumpling makers at work. Warning: this is not a first date kind of place.

    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.

    Get the cold noodles with tahini sauce or quinoa soup with your dumplings if you are hungry. Great additions.

    Love the pork and chicken dumplings, add a nice cold tofu salad and Calpico drink to complete a nice picnic in Tompkins Square Park.
