Tiny, crowded, dim, usually a wait, even for to go orders, but it is popular because the dumplings are so delicious. Not a place for a romantic date, but definitely a place to show your date that you are knowledgeable about great food, even when hidden in a dinky den.

This place is as big as your nose. It's definitely NOT good for large parties. They don't take reservations so either go early or late or order to go. The Shanghai dumplings are the best in town--the only in town. They make really good other dumplings--pork, chicken, vegetarian. The fried tofu is good, too. You're not going for friendly service,...

We saw this on trip advisor and thought we would try it. The place was packed, which is always a good sign. The owner was very friendly, food was all excellent. We had pork and chive dumplings, Asian pancake with chives, cucumber salad with crushed garlic and five spice beef. All was excellent and the bill was 27 dollars, including... More

The food is one of the worst Chinese food ever. The waiter touched the tips of the forks and tried to give it to me three times. The flooring is dirty. The fork and bowels they provided had left over residual food!!! It is very dirty there. The street parking is not free.

Stick to the dumplings, you can not go wrong. The taste and texture are superb. The mofu tofu was excellent. I will definitely return to try other dishes.

I have eaten beef noodle soup and pork dumplings here and they are both good. The skin isn't too thick and they are made on site under threat owners supervision. The owner is very friendly and welcoming.

Small but popular Chinese place in RWC. I enjoyed the dumplings and dim sum, they do that just right. I was a bit disappointed in the noodle soup; they had nice long authentic style noodles but the pork and tofu was flavorless and dull. when I go back I think I will stay focused on the dumplings, that was the...

This is the stereotypical hole-in-the-wall dumpling (dim sum) restaurant. They honestly have one of the best dumplings i've had in the south bay. Their Xiaolongbao (shanghai soup dumpling) is outstanding. Their owner is a really funny guy, and they honestly seem like they put a lot of effort into their food. They are pretty recent immigrants from China, and most... More

Wonderful dumpling hole in the wall. Highly recommend the Shanghai dumplings and spicy beef tendon. Place is small so you may have to wait, but it's definitely worth it. Service is excellent and friendly!

The Service here is bad, but it's a real Chinese restaurant, so you shouldn't expect US-style service (even if it is in the US). The lamb dumplings were excellent and just like the ones I have had on trips to China. They rival those I have had in other cities with large Chinese populations, including Vancouver and Toronto. Some of... More
