Finally got to go here and was a bit disappointed. The food was decent...it was tasty...but a few orders of dumplings cost over 17$. And I wasnt even satisfied after my 6. Had to grab a slice afterwards.

Dumplings were so-so. Like someone else said - too chewy. Service was crabby. I got the fried pork dumplings and they were rather greasy. The inside of this place is tiny and claustrophobic if there are more than two other people inside at the same time. And, the don't have ice. In the middle of summer in NY, you cannot get ice for your (warm) drink.

Finally got to try the dumplings at this time after a couple of failed attemps in the past. Perhaps it was the highly built up expectation to be wowed by the place and the quality of the dumplings, but I came out just feeling marginal about the both. The dumplings were too thick, they were a bit chewey. the fillings are plenty but rather tasteless, and the sauces available are too standard to merit any special note. Its just okay. Not bad and not great either.

Tried this place today and to be honest we were disappointed. We are chinese so can claim to be somewhat experts in what a good dumpling should be. And these really aren't.

These are some pretty freekin good dumplings. Steamed chicken and veggie dumplings are my go to order. I particularly enjoy the authentic middle aged asian ladies on display making the dumplings by hand in assembly-line fashion. Good teamwork is nice to see. What I thought was their achilles heel previously was their lack of a good complimentary dumpling sauce, but with the recent addition of the "Cool Monster" cucumber and coconut milk based sauce, they have hit sea foam green gold. A filling meal of mixed and matched 8 dumplings comes at a very fair price. I wouldn't buy their pins though. They should be giving them away.

The dumplings are decent but not great. If I'm in the hood I would stop by but wouldn't make a trip just to eat them. You can get better dumplings in Chinatown for less than half the price.

Food was good but I've had a similar meal for nearly half the price.
