    Amazing soup dumplings!!! I'm dreaming about them. And on top of that a really cheap price and really fast service. One of my favorite Chinese place in Chinatown.

    When your pork soup noodles come, take one and poke a little hole in it to cool it down a bit, then put the whole thing in your mouth and have the bite of your life.

    The xiaolongbao here are a lot better than Joe Shanghai's. The skin is thin and delicate. The pork stuffing is really delicious, but the soup inside is way too thin and flavorless.

    If there's one thing you get here, get the pork with rice cakes. Unbelievable.

    Best soup dumplings in Manhattan. Get the pork ones. You will not be sorry. Also try the pea shoots.

    What's good here? The pork soup dumplings are what's good! They're small, but come as a set of 8. Get two lots, stuff your face and walk out with barely a $10 check.

    Good food if yu are careful what you order. Very good double cooked pork. Scallion pancake too greesy. Soup dumplings fairly good.

    If you are within 5 blocks of this place, I can't understand a scenario in which you should not drop for an order of pork soup dumplings.

    Soup dumplings are really cheap and great. Awful service, but for a $4.95 meal, I'm not expecting much!

    I don't know why I keep coming back since the service is so consistently horrible. Which means the food is definitely making up for it!

    Obviously get the soup dumplings, they're only $5! Besides that, definitely get a scallion pancake or two for the table. Love. LOVE the Mao Po tofu here.

    Not recommended for vegetarians. Even things like the eggplant and the spring rolls have meat in them. I ended up having the fried rice and it was subpar. My meat-eating friends enjoyed their meal.

    The #2 soup dumplings are amazing! Pro tip: take a small bite, drink out some of the soup, dip it in the sauce and eat the rest!

    The soup dumplings are always a safe bet. If you aren't allergic to seafood, the crabmeat pork dumplings are to die for. Any of the rice cake dishes are also extremely delicious and satisfying.

    Best xiaolongbao/soup dumplings in Chinatown hands down. Get two orders and the long beans for a nice, cheap lunch for two.

    This may be the best Chinese food I've ever eaten! Loved the pork Lo Mein, pork soup dumplings and pork chop & string beans over rice. Can't beat $3.50 beers either!!!!!

    Crabmeat soup dumplings are great! Liked the sesame noodles and steamed pork dumplings too. Make sure you get some steamed bok choy to balance your meal out or risk a heavy food coma.

    Great soup dumplings. Lots of yelling by the staff. When you first walk in you might feel like you're in trouble. Relax.
