We loved the dumplings here are great. I also recommend the potsticker. While very mainstream, the chicken chow mean is quite tasty. And the fresh cucumber is really good but everyone better partake as it's covered in garlic.

What's your fav? Our's is the pork, shrimp and chives dumpling. Green onion pancakes are good, as are the beef rolls. Get the Spicy chicken pot. Loaded with flavor, it's pretty good.

We want to try their food after reading good review, but we are disappointed. The food is not that good. The place is not that clean, typical Chinese restaurant.

Yum. Walked under the freeway from the Embassy Suites.... About 0.6 miles. Tiny.... Dumplings, string beans and pancakes were just delicious. Glad we made the effort to find it!

Don't expect great decor when you walk into Dumpling Empire. This is a family owned neighborhood restaurant. What you get is average dumplings and xiao long bao but the prices were pretty reasonable. You get what you pay for!
