Basil and chicken dumpling, pork and chive dumplings
A full meal for under $5! Try the pork sandwich and the boiled dumplings!
A NYC staple. Cheap, delicious, handmade dumplings. It doesn't get any better than this
You can never go wrong with dumplings from here. Tbh I prefer to buy their frozen dumplings and make them at home.
8 amazing dumplings for $4. Best deal in the area
Dumplings, Sesame Pancakes and soups are all very good and super cheap.
The fried pork buns and pork sesame pancakes (more like a sandwich) are the best things on the menu.
A solid late night eat option and the dumplings are super cheap!!
Must go here at least once. Everytime you visit NYC
Cheap and tasty
Well it is quite ok place to eat. Not as great as expected. Get chicken dumplings with parsley!
Wonton takes a while to make so prepare to wait.
Celebrating National Dumpling Day w/ fried pork & chive + boiled veggie dumplings!
Great bang-for-your-buck boiled veggie & fried chive & pork dumplings & roast beef sesame pancake. Try a lychee smoothie & avoid the sushi.
Made in house and very tasty. Chive and pork are a steal. Cucumbers are crunchy. Stick with meat bases fillings.
Good for the price! The pork dumplings were definitely superior to the seafood and veg ones--the latter didn't taste so fresh.
Very cheap but also extremely tasty! Take dumplings with hot sauce, it's amazing (but spicy so beware!). Kimchi is great. 12 pork dumplings+kimchi+red bean bun=$8.50 and it was a lot of food I can say
I will come again for the juicy pork dumplings
so cheap so good, cop bok choy
Cheap dumplings. Tasty
Quick, tasty and cheap. You can also buy 'em frozen and make dumplings at home.
go down the street to prosperity dumpling
Go in with 5$, leave with change and a full stomach. Amazing. I've been coming here for years - it never disappoints.
It's all about the sesame pancake! Dumplings are good but you'll never have a sesame pancake this good anywhere else.
Good & cheap food in the LES. Beware not to order too much food! Sesame pancakes are like sandwiches, large enough. On order of fried buns on the side and you are set!
The sesame pancake with tuna salad is underrated
For being ranked #2 in NYC for dumplings, I was expecting something tastier. BUT, you can't beat 4 dumplings for $1.25! The pork and chive ones were just okay.
Fried dumplings are much better than the steamed dumplings - go for those and a sesame pancake for the cheapest fill in the city (besides $1 pizza).
Skip the location by Union Square and come here… it's way cheaper and (believe it or not) even better tasting
The duck sesame pancake sandwich is amazing. Also the spicy wonton, and hot and sour soup.
Peking duck pancake (sandwich), the Bok Choy, and the sweet and spicy cucumbers. Can't go wrong w any of the dumplings either!
Forget boiled dumplings, get the BBQ duck pancake. It's more like a massive flatbread sandwich, it's delicious.
Excellent miso soup and mushroom/cabbage salad. The vegetable steamed dumplings taste great yet they are a bit doughy.
I got fried chive dumplings. Ain't nothing like 就拆饺子！
The sesame pancakes are amazing.
Good dumplings but something that surprised me most was the delicious duck soup that had the traditional hand pulled noodles. Super savory and filling. And only $4.50 for the meal!
You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu here. Pay attention for your number!
Don't order too much. One pancake sandwich is more than enough
1.25$ for 4 dumplings!
Try the assortment ... Live a little
The steamed dumplings combination was yummy I got 10 dumplings for 5 and the hot coffee was only a dollar
Crazy good value for what you get! Was all pretty good, but don't go for a smoothie unless you like yours extra sweet as they're v. artificial tasting. Mung bean congee was okay. Dumplings are best.
Great price, great taste.
Not the cheapest but the best dumplings in LES.
Get the pork and chive dumplings and a sesame pancake for $2.25 and roll out the door. Find a deal like that anywhere else? Nope
The value (and taste) is stupendous, but the lack of seating on busy nights will leave you with a bad taste..30+ minutes waiting for a table to free up and practically had to fight people away for it.
Very tasty dumplings for a tiny tiny price. Great pit stop when you're bar hopping in this neighborhood
Get 100 frozen dumplings! So easy and yummy to make at home
