This was voted 'best in Boston' and the line in the door supported that theory. Seating is interesting, you just pick an open spot. You are served hot tea by default instead of water which I appreciated. The only disappointing item were the crab rangoons.

Great authentic place we just stumbled into. It's small, hectic, and wonderful. The tastes are much more subtle than regular Chinese places, especially the sesame chicken and pork dumplings. Reasonably priced too. Try to spring rolls.

A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences,
visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine
and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest
your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the
many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional
Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide
