The place was clean, with a decent amount of tables. Lots of dumpling dishes and soups and rice. And the prices are definitely good. Staff is overall friendly, though their English skills are a little lacking.

The dumplings were the best I've ever had. Scallion pancakes, not so good. Cold. Much better at other places that serve them warm. You order at counter, and take food to table. Not table service! All the locals had the soup bowls, but we thought they were just ok. Beef stew was too fatty for our liking. Pork bun was... More

Their hand drawn noodles are really good. Their portions are pretty big too compared to other chinese restaurants. I usually only need 2 orders to share between my wife and 2 kids. The beef stew is phenomenal. Their fried dumplings are also great. It is probably better if you have them there but if you do take out instead, simply... More

No frills neighborhood Chinese eatery. Hand-pulled noodles made fresh onsite by a guy behind the counter. Very authentic. Homemade hot chili sauce available on every table if you like your food fiery hot. Cash only.

Do not be put off by the unassuming building or the long line. Service is quick and efficient. I recommend that you walk to the back of this small restaurant, sip the complimentary tea and watch as the pulled noodles are being prepared; it is an art. Hot tea was available, it was to the right as we entered the... More

Came here with my brother and a friend who recommended this place. First thing I noticed when stepping inside was that it had quite a number of tables but with all the people standing on line it seemed smaller than it really is. The next thing I noticed were the big garbage receptacles on the right side by the door.... More

Best dumplings I have had in Nyc and I grew up in queens. Pork and leek pan fried dumplings are the best. And what a deal 8 for $2.50 Make sure you get the burnt chili oil and soy/vinegar sauce. Noodle soup is also great. Have it there its not the same to go. Noodles absorb the soup and you... More

Home of the best "dollar" dumplings you can find. I call them dollar dumplings because a few years ago, you got four fried dumplings for a dollar. Inflation has raised the price to a whopping $1.25 for four dumplings. Lol. I love their dumplings but hate the wait. The service is not bad but the people in line will cut... More
