Firstly, let me state that i love, love, love the original location on Eldridge Street. The food is fantastic, cheap and the staff, even though their command of the English language is limited, is usually friendly and helpful. The new location in Williamsburg is great too. BUT (always the but) i regret to say this, the 14th street location leaves much to be desired. The staff there is surly at best and plain rude if i am being completely honest. The facility is untidy and often smells. It's just a total mess over there. Overall, the quality of food is much poorer than in the other locations and puts a damper on their good brand equity. Ironically, it's the most expensive location out of all. Go to the original location or else get a slice of Pizza somewhere.

I go every Thursday and Sunday and boooooooze it up here. Budweiser is only $2 for a tall boy and the food is great....cheap too.

Stopped for a quick bite before a movie. The bf got the roast pork sesame pancake sandwich and I got the vegetable - both delicious and an incredible value at just $3 and $2.50. Shared a fried pork and scallion dumpling ($1.50 for 4), also very good. My almond bubble tea ($3) was the only issue - sickly sweet and super artificial tasting, we couldn't get through half of it. The seating area is like any fast food joint. A little depressing even. Love the open kitchen though. Service was quick, not rude but not friendly either. They are there to serve the food, that's it. Will definitely be back!

Great place. I come all the way from Mineola just to eat here. I just wish they sold booze.

I wish I could have given all 5 stars, though value did receive 5 stars. The dumplings were fine, but the vegetable fillings were just OK. Sesame pancake was tasty, but again just so-so for the vegetable filling. Will report back on other items in the future. The prices are so cheap, I don't mind some misses to find a winner.

Can't beat a soup, sandwich and an order of dumplings for $7.50. Was it the best soup, sandy and dumpling I have ever had? No. Although they hit the spot.

Waited way too long for an order of overly dough-y vegetable dumplings. The filling was good, but I literally felt like I was chewing through uncooked dough. It was also served in a takeout container even though we were staying to eat. It was very awkward to eat out of and made me feel rushed to get out of the restaurant. the service was also very poor, as we waited a long time for a simple order of dumplings even though we were one of the first guests to put out order in. I should had stayed with the Plump Dumpling, who never fails me, right thee on 11th street, but wanted to try something new. Same prices, better service and quality than Vanessas Dumplings.
