    Unbelievably cheap meal. You can eat like a king for $5. Try the Peking duck sandwich, dumplings and pork buns.

    My choice for dumplings in The City. Order extra because you will want more.

    The Peking Duck sesame pancake is only available at the location on Eldridge. Worth the trek. Also, the coconut boba is solid.

  • Hunter N.
    The dumplings obvi. The fried dumplings are done in a breaded way (not sticky) that is a little disappointing but they are delicious and a change from the norm.

    dumplings with the spicy sauce are the ones just because finely chopped fresh garlic and heaps of scallion and yes. also don't sleep on the beef soup. ++ #peoplewatching galore. *every*1 is in here.

    Pros: pork dumplings, sesame pork pancakes are delicious. Cons: It can get very crowded with not enough seats. We ate outside the restaurant.

    Great (cheap!) dumplings, but before you go to those pork and chive, give the wontons in spicy sauce a go. They're a bit more expensive, but totally worth it.

    You can never go wrong with dumplings from here. Tbh I prefer to buy their frozen dumplings and make them at home.

    The fried pork buns and pork sesame pancakes (more like a sandwich) are the best things on the menu.

    Great bang-for-your-buck boiled veggie & fried chive & pork dumplings & roast beef sesame pancake. Try a lychee smoothie & avoid the sushi.
    ZenFoodster Eats · September 26, 2015
  • Rem K.
    Made in house and very tasty. Chive and pork are a steal. Cucumbers are crunchy. Stick with meat bases fillings.
    Rem Koning · September 19, 2015
  • Lisa R.
    Good for the price! The pork dumplings were definitely superior to the seafood and veg ones--the latter didn't taste so fresh.
    Lisa Rayle · September 15, 2015
  • Kiki V.
    Pork Buns!
    Kiki Vassoler · September 6, 2015
  • Anastasia E.
    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
