    For just $5, you get a giant bowl filled with beef broth, noodles, bok choi and a choice of meats, topped with a fried egg. $3 warrants you a plate of 12 dumplings. Run there. Run there now. Read more

    The best dumplings i have eaten and i am not exaggerating. A very modest small restaurant hidden on east broadway. Excellent value for money. A plate of 10 juicy fried dumplings for only 3$

    Here, the fried Fujianese-style dumplings are triangular and packed with pork & chive. They are packed tight into an enormous pan, allowing oil to escape and the top to stay tender and pliant. Read more

    Even if you don't dine in, buy their homemade frozen dumplings ($8.50-$10 for 40 pieces? Sorry, I forget), they are scrumptious! Lean, not doughy & fresh. Trust me! P.S. I didn't even fry them.

    One of my favorite stops in NYC. Everything is so ridiculously cheap! I always get the knife shaved noodles with minced pork sauce. And the dumplings are to die for!

    #1 - Hand-pulled noodle soup (beef broth) with beef and bok choy - $5.50 Noodles pulled fresh after you order. After several years of going here, it's still amazing to watch these masters at work.

    Their fried dumplings beat out all the usual suspects--Prosperity, Vanessa's, etc. The meat is so juicy there is no need for sauce. Although, the chili and sweet soy sauce are delicious as well.

    This place gets crowded really fast, so anticipate some wait time when you come. That said, the noodle soups are amazing (make sure to season them), and the sweet dumplings are a real treat.

    Sandra Rubinchik · November 16, 2014

    Communal seating and a hearty bowl of steaming noodle soup. Noodles made in front of your eyes - labor and love. Easy to appreciate the hard work, light broth, and a beef brisket noodle soup.

    Mary Lee · August 10, 2014
  • Sophia K.

    Dumpling is the reason I came. I had to bring a bag of the frozen dumpling home, that good. As for the noodle, it's good, but I'd still prefer the other LAN Zhou noodle at Eldridge and canal.

    A must on everyone's to-do-list! Best dumplings I've ever had. 3$ for 10 dumplings, since they changed the menu. Safe space and eat as much as you can.

    Here, you can get 12 pork & chive dumplings for $3. "Thin skins, fried perfectly crisp, yield to your bite to reveal juicy nuggets of pork and chives so flavorful that no sauce is necessary." Read more

    Take a seat that faces the back of the shop so you can watch them make your hand pulled noodles from scratch. MUST order the #9 pork soup & the fried dumplings. Best dumplings in NYC.

    I know you're still cold out there! Warm up at Lam Zhou with the best bowl of hand pulled noodles and fried dumplings in Chinatown! Read all about it on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Beware of 'Lan Zhou' two doors down with the exact same yellow menu and red font. Lam Zhou is smaller, better, and has a guy in the back making cat's cradle from a giant ball of dough.

    Jennifer B · December 18, 2011
  • Sandy L.

    Get the noodle with 'miced pork sance'. It is the best. And then afterwards get 50 frozen dumplings at the amazing price of $8. It's way better than the stuff you buy in supermarkets.

    Sandy Lin · July 13, 2011
  • Alex G.

    Order the dumpling noodle soup and slurp it down as they make fresh noodles while you watch. Be sure to add the chili sauce from the jar.

    Alex Godin · September 27, 2013
  • Andrea P.

    This food is like crack....amazingly delicious and cheap! Worth the trek downtown. Dumplings and noodle soups are the way to go here.

    Andrea Plasko · February 16, 2015
  • Tiffany Z.

    These fried (beef I think?) dumplings were the best - definitely recommend. Noodles were really good too. +super cheap. -small, crowded place

    Tiffany Zhong · April 12, 2015
  • DR G.

    I went on an all-day dumpling crawl with friends and this was hands-down the best dumplings we had in NYC. They also sell bags of them frozen to take home.

    DR G · February 25, 2015
  • Serious Eats

    Skip the noodles and focus on the incredibly juicy and flavorful pork dumplings, the best you'll get in Chinatown--better than all those dumpling shops!

    Serious Eats · February 11, 2015
  • Noah W.

    Come for the noodle soup ($6), stay for the juiciest pan friend pork dumplings with chives you'll ever eat ($3 for 10).

    Noah Weiss · February 19, 2015
  • Audrey T.

    Don't be scared by the loud noises coming from the back. It's just the sound of the tastiest noodles ever. Get them dry with minced pork sauce. And oh yea the dumplings. Duh.

    Audrey Tolbert · June 12, 2014
  • Celena C.

    A popular casual hole in the wall-- perfect for a quick bite. I recommend the #1 beef noodles + add oxtail as well as the fried dumplings (ask for vinegar)!

    Celena Chan · August 8, 2015
  • Josh T.

    Cheap and delicious food. The beef soup noodle is classic. Add some soy sauce and spices and it's the perfect lunch.

    Josh Taroli · June 25, 2015

    Noodles are freaking awesome. Not crazy about the beef. Just wish I could eat bowls of plain noodles. Fried dumplings are cheap and awesome. Skin is light and thin.

    Look for street numbers as this is a very tiny place that has no sign in English, it is near a Kitchen equipment store place.

  • Anissa

    Don't miss the boiled dumplings!!! All the noodle soups are great but don't skip the dry noodle with minced pork!

    Anissa · August 12, 2014
  • Brian M.

    Upside: Big, hearty, yummy bowl of veggie noodles w. fried egg on top for only $5. Downside: Small, no-frills place that could use a good cleaning.

    Brian Masefield · December 13, 2014

    The best dumplings i have eşten and i am not exaggerating. A hidden little taste spot. Great value for money, 10 delicious fried dumplings for 3 $

    Douse your hand pulled noodles in the delicious garlicky brown sauce in the Sriracha bottle to take your lunch to the next level. Dumplings here are fantastic too.

    Joy Chen · June 24, 2014
  • Eunice K.

    The noodles with minced meat is the way to go. Best enjoyed with friends after you bust out of your 9-5.

    Eunice Kim · September 14, 2015
  • Topher B.

    No one does noodle soup better than these guys! The steamed pork (#9) is my favorite, and don't forget to add chili oil, fish sauce, and plenty of pickles!

    Topher Burns · January 10, 2010
  • Jenny G.

    Great dumplings, especially the pan fried ones. Beware portions are big and filling. Our dinner for two cost $13 and we couldn't finish it.

    Jenny Grange · May 18, 2015
  • Teresa

    If you want thicker noodles, you can ask the chef if they have the knife shaved noodles. I usually call and ask before I trek to East Broadway.

    Teresa · January 24, 2011

  • Josh T.

    Two soups, two times 10 dumplings, two drinks and only 20$ in total. Incredible and delicious!

    Josh Taroli · June 25, 2015
  • Kane H.

    Dumplings are the way to go here. Try both the boiled and the fried; save room for tang yuan dessert (sweet rice dumplings).

    Kane Hsieh · August 4, 2013
  • KEN N.

    Fried dumplings or any noodle dish, which covers most everything on their menu. Order anything .... you can't go wrong!!!

    KEN Naarden · March 28
  • Evan S.

    Sure, the soups are solid (not my absolute fave in the 'hood), but if you pass up on the fried dumplings I will smack you.

    Evan Staff · March 26
  • Daniel D.

    Based on a foursquare tip, I ordered the Sweet Rice Dumplings for dessert. They're glutenous mush wads with what tastes like chicklets inside. Horrible. Avoid at all costs!

    Daniel Delaney · August 21, 2011
  • Phu S.

    Hole in the wall but the Best noodle soup and dumplings in NYC for almost nothing. $3 dumplings and $6 soup. No alcohol but I'm sure you can BYOB.

    Phu Styles · February 17, 2014
  • Hyomin K.

    Dumplings are so good. Thin skinned, juicy and really flavorful. The noodle soup is rich in flavor too. No sauce needed!

    Hyomin K · May 18, 2013
  • Ifeoluwa

    Probably the yummiest, $2-$3 you'll ever spend. The dumplings are delicious! So are the dry noodles w/ minced pork.

    Ifeoluwa · December 27, 2014
  • Andrew F.

    Don't order the fried pork dumplings and the beef soup noodle for yourself. You won't be able to finish both.

    Andrew Furman · March 2, 2014

    You'll see your noodles slammed into shape as you wait. It's filling, delicious, and soooo cheap for noodle soup and dumplings. Read more

    Noodles here are cheap (all in the $5 range) and delicious. Can't go wrong with the classic - beef noodle soup.

    Honghui Yu · August 10, 2014
  • Yu

    Noodles are perfectly al dente here. Get the zha jiang mian (minced pork noodles) if you don't want noodle soup.

    Yu · August 11, 2014
  • Brian B.

    Fried pork dumplings are one of the best in the city! Thin skin and juicy, tender, and flavorful filling.

    Brian B · June 28, 2015
  • Andrew W.

    Get it all. Noodles, dumplings, soup. If you sit in the back, you can watch them make the noodles by hand.
