    Hot and sour soup is not spicy and has meat in it. The spinach dumplings are good.

    So convenient that this place is directly on top of the Canal St stop for to-go orders. You can quickly escape home with the inordinate amount of food you ordered and eat it all in your bed ASAP.

    Great authentic Chinatown dumpling spot. My table tried a little of everything. Crispy, delicious egg rolls, crab Rangoon and pork buns. The shrimp dumplings and sesame chicken dishes were also a hit.

    Good Chinese food for the price. Their pork dumplings are awesome, although they lack the soup in them the other restaurants around the area are known for.

    steamed dumplings are insanely good...great soy based dipping sauce as well. Chinese food legit as well. If you haven't hit this place, and you love Chinese, specifically dumplings, you are an idiot

    Dumplings people. It's in the name. Also had Peking duck barbecue spring roll. The spring rolliness of it was amazing, but the duck part was only OK. Plan to try other rolls when I go back.

    It felt like the hand made dumplings were hard and hadn't completely defrosted. Not my favorite.

    Hard not to eat like Jabba the Hut here. Lots of food for little💰. Pork 🐷 soup dumplings and pork 🐷steamed dumplings were the winners. Pork buns are OK but certainly not winning a Porky 🏆

    Dumplings Til You Die: keep running back orders of the soup and steamed pork dumplings. Until they wheel you out of there. In a coffin. To the cemetery. Because you died. Of deliciousness.

    Our go-to place for straight-up dumplings (as the name would indicate). The fried pork dumplings are our favorite, and the scallion pancakes are actually quite tasty.

    Dumplings weren't that good: too doughy & meat filling was fatty & inedible. Veggie ones were a little better.
