Dumplings are meh....i m a dumpling-fiend and my personal fav is dumpling man in the east village. They are not very flexible in the menu so it makes ordering a pain if you are just one or 2 persons

Food here is typical chinese food with an american twist of all the fusion styles. Totally overpriced first of all. You can easily get dumplings with same taste or better in chinatown for like 70% cheaper. Eat here if you're into the "fusion gimmick" which is most likely the dip sauce. The dumpling it self isn't much to be amused about other than it being with a style of fushion, taste-wise is bland without the gimmick sauce. I smile at these stores because it's always so successful at their business because people don't know the real value of the food. As long as it seems foreign you can simply hike the price up 2-3x...funny.... travel a bit more...and a new world of gourmet is ahead of you for 3x cheaper

I just went to the new Rickshaw on 45th and Lex, and I can't wait to go again. I got the Rickshaw Regular box with kimchi beef dumplings and they are delicious! Very spicy, which I love. The dumpling is very tender and fresh. You might be tempted to think 6 dumplings and a side won't be enough for lunch, but it totally is--and I'm a big eater. Such a fantastic concept. Wish I had thought of it!

Rickshaw Dumpling Bar is good but pricey. I wish they offered a variety box so I can try one of each flavor dumplings, but they don't, so I was boring and stuck with regular pork & chive. They were steamed. The outside was sticky-yummy and not slimey like most Chinese take-out places (which is why I usually order seared or fried dumplings, but Rickshaw only offers steamed). The pork filling was soft, which was pleasant because at most Chinese take-out places the filling is like a rubber bullet. The soy-based dipping sauce was good but a little salty - could have used more chives. I also got the chocolate soup dumpling. They charge $2 for just ONE of them, and it's about the size of a Munchkin from Dunkin Donuts! It was good but weird - black sesames and dark chocolate don't really go together, and they cover the "dumpling" in them as if they were sprinkles or powdered sugar. This dumpling was fried, also, which makes me wonder why Rickshaw can't fry their other dumplings as well. I got 6 small dumplings for $6. I wasn't very hungry so it satisfied me, but if you're really hungry you could easily end up spending $20 at this place. I wouldn't recommend going there for dinner. It's good for a light lunch or snack. If I went back I would save the $2 on the soup dumpling, spend a little extra, and try some of the other dumpling varieties instead. The delivery service was super fast (20 min and it was there), and the order was packed up nicely, but we've already decided that the next time we order in lunch we're sticking with our other office favorite.

I got the chicken dumplings with green salad from the truck and both were WAY TOO salty. I only ate them because I was really hungry...but would not go back to this place again.

I have gone to Rick Shaw for lunch probably 30 times in the last 8 months. Each time I order the Rick Shaw regular – 6 dumplings and soup. Food quality and taste is reasonable. It is also a reasonable value for what you get. What amazes me, however, is that I have yet to receive warm (let alone hot) dumplings. I just don’t understand. I think steamed dumplings should be hot, not cold or lukewarm (when lucky). Maybe I am misinformed about the proper way to prepare dumplings, but something tells me dumplings from the freezer need more than 10 seconds of steam. Is there a store policy that instructs the cooks to sever dumplings cold? There must be… that’s the only explanation I can think of.
