Great dumplings, very good value if you get them in the huge noodle soup. There's so much I haven't tried, but I loved the shrimp. I was very impressed that the dumplings held their shape in the soup after a 20 minute trip home -- I bet that's why other's claimed they are rubbery. I'd rather they be rubbery than fall apart. Can't wait to try them fried! The shop is very clean, friendly & fast.

We found the dumplings mediocre at best, tough skins. The green tea malted was full of ice crystals and undrinkable.

I heard about this from watching Martha Stewart Show and was instantly tempted to drive to NYC, but I quite forgot to take into consideration how kid friendly the place was so I dragged my son and daughter and 2 nieces who were the only children in place and as we walked into to their hallway, we were greeted by sort of unwelcome looks and somehow uncomfortable gaze by the these two people standing behind the cashier. We almost wanted to walk out since we obstructed the hallways with our strollers and the impatient clientele. The music was upbeat in the background and that drowned the noise the kids were making. Oh by the way, dumplings although served diffrently with their exotic dips were not that spectacular as I thought they would be. Shrimp was probably the best and their refreshing watermelonade. After taking our left over home, we headed for Chinatown.

I've actually been dreaming of these since I went 2 days ago, and can't wait to find an excuse to get back there and try the chocolate dumplings! I had the shrimp and my friend had the peking duck. Both were excellent as was the green tea milkshake! The service was quick, accurate, and friendly. It was also very clean! Give it a try.

I went there for lunch the other day. I was excited to go there as I read about it in New York Magazine. I didn't have to wait long and placed my order quicky. As I was dining in, they told me to wait for my number. It was a little chaotic and I didn't hear my number called. I noticed a box sitting on the counter and walked up - sure enough they were mine. I was disappointed that they let them sit and didn't call the number again. But on a whole, it was good.

I'm a dumpling aficionado, so naturally I was excited to hear that a restaurant devoted to dumplings was opening in m neighborhood. I'm accustomed to old-fashioned, thin-wrapping dumplings like they make in Taiwan and Hong Kong. I ordered the usual steamed pork and chives dumplings and the skin was rubbery. The meat was a little bland. And the soy sauce didn't have sesame oil in it. It's a hip place alright, but not where I'd go for good dumplings.

These dumplings were great. I also got the side salad with the soy dipping sauce -- so yummy! I highly recommend this place!
