    The 1-2 punch of crab and pork soup dumplings followed by pan fried juicy pork buns will knock you into dumpling heaven for $11. You just need to take the 7 to the last stop to get there.

    Dare I say best soup dumplings in NYC? Definitely better than Joe Shanghai. Get the crab with pork over just the pork for $1 more. The scallion pancake with beef is pretty tasty.

    Soup dumpling was good, my issue was service. My first time here on sat around 530, not busy but somehow they forgot my order. A few ppl that sat down after me got served first, had to ask twice!

    Salty bean curd is not vegan :( It was covered with little dried shrimp! Maybe you can ask for it without them? Not sure. Veggie dumplings and veggie soup are vegan though and tasty.

    Order the soup dumplings (buns). Possibly the best in NYC. Get 2 orders if it's more than just you eating. If you're in the mood for noodles, the crispy noodles w/ shredded chicken was delicious.

    worth the wait so be sure to bring a lot of patience. the xlb comes out in 30 min waves. if you get there at the end of a wave, you're set. always order more xlb than you think you want

    The xiao long bao here are huge, have thick chewy skins, lots of soup and delicious filling. You can watch them being made in the kitchen! Explore Flushing Chinatown while you wait to get in. - Alexa

    One of the best Xiao long baos in NYC. Their rice cakes and beef scallion pancake is also really good. They often have lines, but it moves pretty quick.

    Tommy Chen · October 4, 2014
  • Jenny F.

    Amazingly good XLB of course. You may find it too salty due to the soy sauce or the taste of your tears silently streaming down your face at the taste of such authentic shanghai style dimsum

    Jenny Fan · June 30, 2013

    It's not on their English menu. Ask for the steamed taro pork buns. So good, its to die for. So much better than the regular or crab meat ones. Its what the locals eat, can't be beat!

    Tasty soup dumplings and the best scallion pancake I've ever had. Parking is a Game of Thrones style nightmare so if you can take the subway, do that.

    You know why you're here... The soup dumplings!!! They're a must. They were my first soup dumplings ever. Also try: spicy wontons, scallion pancakes and rice cakes with shredded pork! #nyceats

    Insanely delicious soup dumplings. The pork buns were also one of the best I've tried. Also, the scallion pancakes with beef are soooo tasty and rich!

  • Lasha K.

    The soup dumplings are pretty much the de facto here. Scallion pancakes, rice cake, and beef noodles are good options. Rice dishes are pretty good too. Good for groups and late dinners!

    Lasha K · November 4, 2015
  • RichelleMabell

    Delicious little parcels these xiao long bao! Make sure to eat while its hot! Poke a hole and let the hot steam come out before popping in your mouth!

    No matter how good the soup dumplings smell, do note that these babies come piping hot and will leave your tongue with third degree burns if you try to down them too quickly. Read more

    The Soup dumplings are undoubtedly some of the best around, but the real star is the scallion pancake with beef. Not to be missed.

    Nicholas Doyle · March 20, 2015
  • Stephanie M.

    Soup dumplings were good but my favorite are the pan fried pork buns! Has a touch of sesame, crispy bottom, and delicious dough.

    Stephanie Meza · September 5, 2015
  • ruth k.

    Definitely get there early. Definitely worth the 40 min wait after getting seated for soup dumplings. While you wait get some scallion pancakes. All very delish.

    ruth kim · November 9, 2014
  • Omer Z.

    The line's not as bad as it looks. The xiao long bao wrappers are crazy thick and good. Waitress recommended the scallion noodles which were super filling and tasty.

    Omer Zach · September 20, 2014
  • Devoted A.

    Hands down delicious Crab Meat Xiao Long Bao, Scallion Pancake with Sliced Beef, and Pork + Vegetables Wonton Soup...mmmm!! Must try so add it to your list!

    Devoted Anna · June 21, 2015
  • Mark B.

    Simply put, the best place for soup dumplings in NYC. Also get the scallion pancake to sop up any spilled dumpling soup, as the dumplings are super juicy.

    Mark Birch · July 8, 2013
  • Lilian W.

    Pretty authentic soup dumplings. On a cold day, get hot sweet soy bean milk to start. Don't get the casserole wontons... Scallion pancakes were decent but not the best I had.

    Lilian Wong · February 2, 2013
  • Kian Lam K.

    Best xiao long bao (soup dumpling) in NYC I think. Skin is just perfectly thin and chewy. Stuffing is juicy. Also try the savory soy milk. Love this place. Read more

    Cucumbers with garlic are great, as is the bean curd with cilantro. They were "sold out" of the vegetable dumplings, which apparently happens pretty often

    Try the Xiao Long Bao - Sharing my favorite soup dumplings in the world with @sethland & @amyblogschow. (I ate these 464 days ago! But here's a better photo of)

    Though known for their XLB, "don’t overlook the Pan Fried Pork Buns. A juicy pork meatball is housed inside a tender and fluffy bun, with a golden fried bottom. It’s the pot sticker of steamed buns." Read more

    Quite possibly the best soup dumplings I've ever had (Including in China). Also don't miss the 生煎包! Careful with the soy sauce, it's CRAZY salty.

    Faye H · June 30, 2013
  • Sunny S.

    Another thing to try is the sticky rice roll with fried crueler inside (the sweet kind). Traditional shanghainese breakfast and totally makes me homesick!

    Sunny Shen · March 30, 2012
  • Felix G.

    Soup Dumplings are probably the best I've ever had. I really liked the shredded chicken over crispy noodles. Like, I almost ate them all on my own.

    Felix G · November 18, 2012
  • Johnnie C.

    Small menu with some of the most amazing and fresh Chinese dishes in NYC. Try the pork buns, crispy noodles, and Shanghai fried udon!

    Johnnie Cummins · May 2, 2014
  • Scott G.

    Wow!! Best tip for first timers: the pork buns (or shrimp and pork buns) are what are known as soup dumplings. Aka, get multiple orders!

    Scott Gellman · December 16, 2015
  • jon f.

    Soup dumplings are a no brainer. That's why you're here. But the fried curler with warm soy milk is another authentic dish. Best for breakfast.

    jon ferrer · August 23, 2014
  • Christina C.

    Get the regular soup dumplings. They are the best in New York. Freshly made & steamed when you order them. The Shanghainese broad noodle dish is delish too.

    Christina C. · December 29, 2012
  • Ray L.

    The best soup dumplings in NYC (Joe's Shanghai can't touch this). Pro tip: 1) puncture exterior to cool, 2) sip soup, 3) devour dumpling.

    Ray Lin · February 5, 2014
  • Ken Y.

    If there was such thing as the world series of Xiao long bao this place would be in the finals. The scallion pancake with beef is pretty good too

    Ken Yeh · October 7, 2013

    Best soup dumplings in nyc, even tastier with more soup (and less oily) than the original nan xiang 小 龙 包 joint in Shanghai, China.

    Jennifer Chan · May 5, 2013
  • Inge C.

    Pork soup dumplings: good, but the bottoms were thin so the dumpling would break open as you picked it up.

    Inge Chen · June 16, 2013
  • Brandon F.

    It's all about their handmade soup dumplings. Learn how to eat them like a master and watch people scold themselves who don't. Muah ha ha ha ha!!!

    Brandon F. · July 11, 2015
  • Eshrefe S.

    Dumplings, scallion pancake, beef noodle soup; all delicious. A bit greasy but fried noodle is a must try. You better share it.

    Eshrefe Shehu · February 5
  • Joanna F.

    The xiao long bao take about 20 minutes, so bide your time with a delicious order of Pan-Fried Pork Buns and some Scallion Pancakes.

    Joanna Flamm · December 1, 2013
  • Anne L.

    Everything was amazing. The xiao long bao were juicy and delicate. The scallion pancakes with steak were perfectly crispy and accented.

    Anne Lin · January 12
  • Grace B.

    Their soup dumpling is the best I've had in NY. Their beef&tripe, shanghai noodles and scallion pancakes are also worthwhile.

    Grace Bong · June 15, 2015
  • Immi G.

    Xiao long bao's are so good! Their rice cake and Shanghai pan fried noodles are good too! Service is horrible. Better if you speak mandarin.

    Immi Gaga · August 11, 2011
  • Ellie D.

    Get here early for first dibs at a highly-coveted table for Taiwanese breakfast. Don't leave without soup dumplings, and lots of them.

    Ellie D · April 17, 2012
  • Jenny L.

    Why do the workers here not like what they do? Cheap Boss? Anyways, overall good food. Not all know canto but its fine. Oh & surprise visitor. Stay away.

    Jenny Lam · July 23, 2013
  • Jonathan M.

    They have a menu but people mainly come for soup dumplings. Everything else is irrelevant. Come to snack but not if your very hungry.

    Jonathan Moro · August 10, 2014
  • John S.

    Soup dumplings for days! Also get the spicy beef tendon. Surprisingly good here despite not being a sichuan restaurant

    John Shen · October 27, 2015
  • Jaime A.

    Crispy noodles with chicken and rice cake with beef. Oh don't forget the scallion pancakes #immafatty

    Jaime A · August 9, 2013
