East Dumpling House
Posted by sophie on 01/01/2014
Really - Wonderful homemade dumplings on par with the best dumpling-holes in Chinatown. Pork with chive are classic - steamed or fried. Make sure you dip them in dumpling vinegar! Also wonderful - vegetable dumplings. My husband is Chinese, and we adore this cozy little place. Best-kept secret on the Upper West Side!

I was impressed by how meaty the dumplings were-- not filled with cabbage. Really tasty- and a big hit with kids. Will be trying more on the menu soon!

We ate here once and it wasn't bad. The soup was bland, but the dumplings were ok. We tried takeout and were told our order was on the way and after calling 45 minutes later, we found out they forgot to put our order in and blamed their computer. They never bothered to call us and tell us our food was not coming. Poor customer service and mediocre food at best. We will never eat here again.

Ordered pork & chive dumplings, a noodle soup, and an "east pancake" and it was pretty disappointing - the dumplings were the best but were pretty fatty - I'd eat them again though. The chicken in the soup was just about all gristle and the east pancake just greasy and nondescript. All in all, a shame because this area needs some good dumplings.

These dumplings are really good and I am judging them on an international scale in comparison to dumplings I have had in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Seoul. The other dishes there are good enough as a side attraction but, like others have said, tend to come out bland and salty. Stick with the dumplings and the soups.

...and that's about it. Their dumpling soups are also good. The rest of their dishes alternate between bland to salty.
