    Dumplings, sesame pancakes and spicy wontons is what you want. So good, so quick and so cheap. Great place to go to if there is a wait @Attaboy

    Scallion pancake with duck! So good. Plenty of food for not a lot of money. Bring cash if you plan on spending less than $15!

    I would eat their sesame pancakes day in, day out! Their fried chive & pork dumplings are pretty good too ($1.50). Don't go there on a Saturday, it's way too busy. I had to sit on the door stairs.

    Happiness is a plate of dumplings. So cheap. I personally get some boiled and some fried so.

    Don't get the hype. The veg dumplings were very average, the spicy red sauce was good though.

    Super cheap dumplings, not the most amazing but for the price they are not bad at all. Not a lot of seating and the bathroom was not nice. Min $10 for CC, which may be hard seeing as how cheap it is

    Stick to the sesame pancake sandwich. The peking duck sandwich was delish. The dumplings were pretty tasteless and nothing special.

    Best cheap eats in the city. I tend to stick to the pan fried pork & chives dumplings. Can't go wrong with them.

    Simply not good. Go to any other dumpling place in Chinatown, it's as cheap and tastes better.

    Wontons in spicy sauce! Garlicky and nice level of spice on shrimp-filled wontons. Do it! Peking duck sandwich good but toppings are inconsistent so each bite not as great as could be. Still recommend

    Skinny hipsters scarfing down delicious dumplings but also try the pancake sandwiches. The beef is light and flavorful, the duck is rich and sweet.

    Been coming here since it was a hole in the wall that just had dumplings. Now they have expanded in size and have a fuller menu. Awesome quality on everything, and a challenge to spend more than $5!

    This tiny little venue has tiny little prices for their delightful dumplings. The sesame pancakes are also great, and perfect to grab to-go on your way to picnic in the park, just a block west.

    You can't come through here without the Peking Duck scallion pancake. Separates this from the uptown location by metaphorical miles.

    Amazing dumplings. Pork sandwich looked super delicious too (I'm trying that next time). You can try cutting the line by ordering at the window outside, but that's a real crapshoot.

    Интерьер действительно аутентичный) но нормально поесть можно за 10$. Возьмите ассорти (на фото) и сандвич с фирменным соусом или говядиной) не прослушайте свой номер)))
