The dumplings are good, but the service omg! They should just make it a Fastfood restaurant. All the waitress there just want you to eat and pay their tips and get out.

The portions here are enormous and the food is on par with other chinese food restaurants in the area, but the big problem at this place (for those of us who don't speak much mandarin) is that the service is sub-par. On my last visit, I asked what was in a particular dish (dietary concerns), and the waiter's answer was "Ok." I asked again, and received the same answer. After deciding not to take the chance, I ordered another item; after much delay, I received the first one that I had asked about and was unable to eat much of it. Over all, those of you who know no mandarin can order here if you don't care what you're eating and if you can point to the item on the menu that you want.

the quality of the food is excellent but the attitude of the staff members are bad.

Yes the soup dumplings are awesome and the pan-fried noodles sublime, but don't go during peak times if the service makes or breaks your restaurant experience. You just have to be a bit more aggressive to get what you need. It's one of my favorites, it's cheap and tasty and that's all that matters to me.

Everything here is good. The Pork Soup Dumplings are what you came for. NOT the crab soup dumplings. Order quickly and get out. Most of all, don't expect good service... Be happy with ordinary service. The food is great. You can stuff yourself with everything and STILL not break $50. It's worth a 15 minute wait. Beware the mean looking waitress. Yah, you know which one I'm talking about. She's the Great White. She's the 1970's bad kung fu movie waitress that will sooner chop you with a cleaver then give you good service. Just leave her alone and you'll be fine. The Wife also loves the scallion pancakes... yum.

With a few exceptions, I don't think you can expect good service when you eat in Chinatown. This is, unfortunately, not one of the exceptions. The waiters here are rude, rude, rude, but the soup dumplings and Shanghai lo mein are so fantastic, I keep coming back. Not to mention the great prices. I recently ate here with 4 people, and the total bill came out to just under $40. Can't beat that! Also, if you like mock dock, it is delicious here, stuffed with shiitake mushrooms. It is a cold dish, though. Might be even better if they served it warm. I have brought a ton of different people here (of all different ethnic backgrounds), and every single one of them has loved it, esp. the soup dumplings and Shanghai lo mein. I have never had lo mein of that consistency anywhere else. Yum! So worth the trek downtown.
