Vanessa's Dumpling House

My friend and I split the shrimp dumplings in soup, a sesame pancake with duck and a sesame pancake with vegetables. The "pancakes" are more like sandwiches and are a meal all by themselves. We spent $8 all together and were delightfully stuffed. The dumplings were very tasty and full of shrimp. The sesame pancakes are cheap, filling and delicious. It was packed so we took it to go. Love this place.

the sauces were all watered down, the dumplings were nothing special. Better try a more authentic dumpling place in the neighborhood.

When friends visit me from out of town, I always make it a point to take them by dumpling house. I've converted many a skeptic into a raving fanatic. Food is fantastic - I highly recommend any type of fried dumpling, and don't miss the sesame pancake, particularly with vegetables or duck. There are one or two menu items not to my liking, but these two staples are well worth the trip. If the busy atmosphere is not what you're looking for on a date, I recommend taking your food to go and visiting the park one block to the west.

I arrived late in the evening but the food was pretty bad. Had veggie bun- which was one o the worst ones I've ever had. Sesame noodles were a disappointment. Veggie Scallion pancake was pretty good, definitely for the price. bubble tea was bad. It's true the place is cheap, but the food was bad and the place was less than appetizing.

What a great find!! This hole-in-the-wall will not dissapoint. Great dumplings all around, try them all. My favorite are the chicken/basil. The price can't be beat either. 4 pork/chive dumplings for $1.00 WOW! Everything else is cheap. A great place for awesome dumplings (and other great aisan street food) at a great price. Definately recommended.

8 vegetarian damplings for $3! Sesame pancake with vegetable (Chinese pizza) for $1.50! Just go there and try. It is so good!
