Really fair priced (filling dinner for two was $30 including tip). TAKES CARDS ($15 minimum). Steamed Pork Soup dumplings were the best dumplings I've had in Philly, can't wait to try the others! And if you don't know the difference between a regular and soup dumpling (I didn't), soup dumplings have soup INSIDE of them (but really it was more like a collection of all the flavors and juices that you'd hope for in any dumpling. Older man was the best and funniest waiter. Also pictured: Sesame Chicken over rice & Pan Fried Noodles (was a special; tasty but would love to try their homemade noodles next time!);

I enjoyed it. Very small place, but in a good location. Wish I had known that they took cards ($15 min). I had the crystal shrimp dumplings and wonton soup and found them appealing. The best points are the price and the quality of the staff (especially the owner/manager).

No wait for lunch at 1200 on a Sunday. Menu in English was helpful for ordering. Pictures of some dishes. Really good dumplings. Reasonable prices. Staff recommended when to stop ordering because it would be too much food, which was nice. Nice atmosphere and clean.
