    There are maaaaany options and the sizes are gigantic, one plate is enough for two, but the food wasn’t fantastic and my dad got sick after it

    Juicy dumplings is the best !!!
  • Wayne B.
    Food is greasy. Servers burned out. $10 corkage fee. Lobster with scallion and chicken with asparagus were good . Dumplings: Forget about it.

    Probably the best and most authentic Chinese I’ve had outside of China. Definitely worth the long wait to be seated. If only Chinese food in Europe tasted like this.

    People seem to love this place so I had very high expectations. The Pork & Cabbage Dumplings are very average. The Soup Dumplings are very flavorful. But the skin of both dumplings are way too thick.

    People who say the dumplings here are good obviously haven't had real xiao long bao. It's a 4.5 at best. The other dishes range from not bad to meh

    A solid Chinese spot. Had better in NYC but very good. Dumplings are flavorful and the free hot tea you get is perfect to wash everything down. Good luck finding parking.
