Their dumplings are the best! Any time I have a layover with enough time I always come here for a meal or two. They still have the same old stained English menu that has to be over 6 years old at this point. It is...More

Beside the queue that sometimes I came across, the dumplings are very nice. We eat inside few times and also the service was pretty good. Friendly environment. Must go/taste.
