Finally, a place that clear the name for Chinese dumpling. No more greasy take out pot sticker with inch thick skin. You can actually see what is inside the dumpling. The classic pork and cabbage dumpling was delicious, with just the right mix of filling like it should be. Soup was favorful and healthy. Delicious, fast, healthy, and not expensive, a rarity in Manhattan. Totally agree that they should let you mix the dumpling though. PS. the chocolate dumpling was yummy !!!

FINALLY a place to get inexpensive food that's fresh & healthy. My salad was crisp-- not wilted & the food was healthy instead of greasy. A reminder to those who complain-- this is not a sit-down five-star joint so stop counting the soy beans in each dumpling! Everything was cooked to perfection with nice flavor.

Had the seared chicken thai basil dumplings which were alright at best. The Miso soup was pretty good, but nothing that's going to blow any socks off. Went there during lunch and it was pretty busy, and there is DEFINITELY not enough seating. But the star of the show was the chocolate dumplings, which i had to say, impressed me. Not what i expected, but were truly great.

Not one minute after I placed my order was it ready...I was impressed, although maybe they rushed too much because they forgot my drink - but they quickly corrected their mistake. I ordered the watermelonade which was very light and refreshing, the veggie dumplings which were well stuffed and delicious (I really liked the dipping sauce), and the chocolate dumpling dessert (which was yummy on the inside, but very messy, and the outer sesame layer was very gooey and took too long to chew. Overall I enjoyed it and would go back.

Was craving dumplings today and i remembered passing by this place on my way to work a couple of times. Jumped on menupages and read the mostly rave reviews and figured I'd give it a go. I ordered the steamed pork, fried sezchuan chicken, and the highly rated green tea shake. Everything was, well, average. The dumplings were small and underfilled, which really made the wrapper stand out all too much. Literally got three and-a-half pulls on the straw, and the rest of my shake was ice. The flavors were uninspiring and bland. This place is more concerned with a cool concept than creating genuine comfort food, and I doubt it will last. And I agree with some readers, there's no reason they shouldn't let you mix-up the dumplings...especially since they're not cooked to order! Won't go back.

After a terrible week at work and a long 4-day holiday weekend upon us, thank God for the early closing today - 4pm. I decided I needed some comfort food. Went in for a very late lunch, place was fairly empty. Placed my order...all steamed - Chicken & Thai Basil and the Peking Duck. I filled up my soda cup and my number was called. Delicious dumplings! Both were very tasteful. Dough was perfect. Can't really say which was my favorite. Loved the dipping sauces for both. Will return again and again and again. Definitely not a burden on my wallet.
