The soup dumplings here are good but do not eat any chicken dish. Honestly, I questioned whether the chicken really was chicken or not. The chicken meat had no qualities of real chicken. Not sure how to describe it but it had a cartilage, hardish but at the same time bouncy texture and the person I was with also described it as a "cartilage-y" texture without my prompting so I guess that is a good description. Neither of us finished our meal because it was just too questionable.

I ordered from there to get some takeout after work and I must say their giant shrimp and scallops in spicy garlic was so good. I was really pleasantly suprised at the quality and quanity of the food. Will definitely order again.

Went there for Lunch. Ordered the soup dumplings, a noodle dish and the rice cake dish. The food good and yummy with nice portion sizes. With the exceptions of the soup dumplings the orders could have fed 2 people easily. Like i said the food was good for midtown, but you probably could have had better if not the same in Chinatown for much cheaper.

I have been to all the Joe's. This is by far the rudest and most expensive (I guess the rent is higher in midtown that Flushing) You only get 5 dumplings the other Joe's you get 6. Even with the nasty behavior, there is nothing better than a hot soup dumpling on a cold winter day!

Food was mediocre at best. Neither the hot & soup soup nor my "spicy" entree had any heat. That said the worst part is the bum's rush we got from the moment we sat down. No fried noodles for soup, no soy sauce, duck sauce or mustard. Never asked how food was and we were given check without being able to order dessert, which one person wanted. We had to ask for dessert menu twice. After getting dessert and the revised check, we were asked to leave because they needed the table. We were at a table for 6, there were several smaller tables open as well as a table for 8 available. As we exited there were not many people waiting.

Listen, this is midtown, restaurants are ALL expensive! In comparison, this one is moderate. You can get lunch for under $15 including tax!! The steamed buns seem to be a topic of concern to many people. They are the best in the area. If you'd rather trek all the way down to Chinatown, be my guest, but I live down the street, and it serves a great function. I don't have the time nor the desire to go all the way downtown to face crowds and dirty streets to save a couple of bucks. The quality of the food is still good uptown. It doesn't pretend to be Chinatown or Flushing.
