    The beef noodle soup is the best. Don't forget pork dumplings and soup dumplings. Here's a pro tip: get the beef pancake too. They also sell dumplings frozen which are the best in the city.

    My new favorite place in the sunset! Authentic Chinese food, delicious dumplings and noodles--I'm partial to the beef tendon and spicy beef (one of the specials on the wall, not on the menu).

    What to get?! So many options! The spicy beef noodles are delicious but SPICY and can be shared with more than 2 people. The soup dumplings are a must have.

    Cheap food. Get Hand pulled noodles of some kind and some of the best onion pancake you can find in the city.

    The hand-pulled noodle soup and wontons were truly outstanding, but I'd pass on the soup dumplings in favor of the steamed dumplings next time. Read all about my visit on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Wonton noodles. Broth and handmade noodles were excellent. Wonton were not real wontons. Closer to normal dumplings.

    The most legit Chinese food I've had in SF and East Bay. Must try! Xiao long bao is very legit. Their soup noodle was also very legit. Salted pepper tofu was great too!

    I love the soup dumplings here, they're smaller to fit in the soup spoons without risking spills. The hand-pulled noodles are scrumptious, but aren't in every noodle dish, so check before ordering!

    A lamb soup with hand-pulled noodles and a few orders of soup dumplings are strictly required orders, but everything else is good too.

    Potstickers were very juicy but needed the in house chili sauce for extra flavor punch.

    I've only eaten here twice but both times I've wished I had a sharp knife or culinary scissors when serving the noodles. They tangle up easily. And DO get the handmade noodles.

    Soup dumplings are a must try. Beef stew is good, spicy beef noodle soup is excellent. Good service.

    The dumplings are pretty awesome. Spicy tendon is not super spicy but tasty if you're into that!

    If you're vegetarian and think that tofu and green soup is safe, think twice - it's on strong chicken broth. Food poisoning for a day!

    Handpulled noodles hard to eat but so worth it. Veggie options exist but be sure to ask. Everything made to order slow but worth it
