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

  • Amanda G.

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

    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.

    ZenFoodster Eats · September 26
  • 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
  • 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
  • Kiki V.

    Pork Buns!

    Kiki Vassoler · September 6
  • 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

    Anastasia Enot · August 31

    I will come again for the juicy pork dumplings

    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.

    Katie Eytch · August 7
  • Jaime S.

    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!

    Jaime Scatena · August 6
  • Emily W.

    The sesame pancake with tuna salad is underrated

    Emily Wilson · July 20
  • Nicolette R.

    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.

    Nicolette Romero · July 18
  • Gaby K.

    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).

    Gaby Kirschner · July 7
  • Afi Y.

    Skip the location by Union Square and come here… it's way cheaper and (believe it or not) even better tasting

    Afi Yellow-Duke · July 7
  • Maya B.

    The duck sesame pancake sandwich is amazing. Also the spicy wonton, and hot and sour soup.

    Maya Bruck · July 5
  • Sharon G.

    Peking duck pancake (sandwich), the Bok Choy, and the sweet and spicy cucumbers. Can't go wrong w any of the dumplings either!

    Sharon Goldstein · June 29
  • Renae M.

    Forget boiled dumplings, get the BBQ duck pancake. It's more like a massive flatbread sandwich, it's delicious.

    Renae Mason · June 20
  • Andrea T.

    Excellent miso soup and mushroom/cabbage salad. The vegetable steamed dumplings taste great yet they are a bit doughy.

    Andrea TK · June 2
  • Amy C.

    I got fried chive dumplings. Ain't nothing like 就拆饺子!

    Amy Chen · May 30

    Sesame pancakes

    Will Price · May 15
  • Sam H.

    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!

    Sam H · May 11
  • Becca B.

    You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu here. Pay attention for your number!

    Becca Bae · May 10
  • Patrick V.

    Don't order too much. One pancake sandwich is more than enough

  • Daniele P.

    1.25$ for 4 dumplings!

    Daniele Pieroni · April 27
  • Taylor T.

    Try the assortment ... Live a little

    Taylor Ts · April 25
  • Zoe L.

    The steamed dumplings combination was yummy I got 10 dumplings for 5 and the hot coffee was only a dollar

    Zoe Louis · April 20
  • Sophie S.

    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.

    Sophie Smith · April 13
  • Diana P.

    Great price, great taste.

    Diana Pearl · April 11
  • Daniele C.

    Not the cheapest but the best dumplings in LES.

    Daniele Codega · April 11
  • Jessica M.

    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

    Jessica Mathews · March 21
  • Robert A.

    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.

    Robert Amezquita · March 21
  • Monrix

    Very tasty dumplings for a tiny tiny price. Great pit stop when you're bar hopping in this neighborhood

    Monrix · March 14
  • Lillian C.

    Get 100 frozen dumplings! So easy and yummy to make at home
