    Visit another location in Midtown

    The Chinatown location is always busy and long wait on line. If you want a better sitting and better service, go to Midtown location at West 56th Street.

    A good thing gone bad

    It's sad to report but this restaurant has been riding more on its reputation rather than its food. Its signature dish is the crab meat soup dumplings which has lost its touch as a mouth watering delight. It tasted bland and the ingredients were not fresh with little or no crab meat. The consistency of the dishes (fried rice and noodles) varied from average to slightly above average based on the time you visit this place. During busy nights, the wait can be as long as 45 mins for a cramped communal table and the wait staff and kitchen will try to get you to finish a hastily cooked meal in under an hour. On slower nights, more time is given to the kitchen to prepare your meal properly but not to the point where it's considered exceptional. My wife's biggest complaint was the lack of dessert menu. Not even fortune cookies were offered to us. Tourists and naive (rather than native) new yorkers continue to pack this establishment even though the food quality is average at best. You'll certainly get value for your money but I'll take my chances with other dumpling houses in the area and not have the headache of waiting in line for 45 mins.

    Great steamed buns!

    The steamed buns(dumplings filled with either crab or pork with soup inside) are the best by far and the shrimp in the shell are good. The prawns were humongous and it's great with the hot-sauce at the table.I hope you don't mind sitting with strangers if you aren't with many people.
