Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 April 2017

There were 3 of us and we all loved everything we had from the famous Shanghai Soup Dumplings (Xiao Long Baos), multilayer beef pancake, combination chow mien, lamb dumplings and pot stickers. All of it was homemade, even the noodles for the chow mien which was more like a lo mien but still delicious. The Shanghai dumplings were some of the best we've had since moving back to the US 3 years ago. The multilayer pancake was full of flavor and the outer layer was very crispy. Even the lamb dumplings were good and didn't have the usual overpowering lamb taste. We had enough to take some leftovers away. The food was still good the next day. You can even watch them making the dumplings or noodles. BTW the service was very good as well. Much better than the average Chinese Restaurant.
Recommendations - definitely go if you are nearby. Get there early as the place filled up quickly for lunch.

Went with some friends and they ordered all the food. Thank goodness they knew what we were getting. I have to admit ... there was a distasteful smell when we first walked in....but only in that area. The food was DELICIOUS. Pig ears, fabulous, pulled noodles, unbelievable and the dumplings were OUTSTANDING. I have had dumplings before and have not been impressed. Theirs was impressive. Need to go with someone who knows what to order!!!
