Service
 
Just a few dollars fund a “pig out” at these “always-busy” dumpling joints whose “amazing” namesake specialty is fried or steamed “while you wait” ; expect “limited” seating and “minimal” service in the “utilitarian” setups, but for a “fast, filling” nosh, you “can’t beat” 'em.

The dumplings were absolutely fantastic! I didn't believe people when they said how good they were but it was true! It is a small no-nonsense place. You place your order up front and then hope to find a small table! They even had frozen dumplings to cook at home. I loved the Thai iced tea too.

It's okay. Not worth the hype. It's your general dumpling shop with more variety. Had the noodles with black bean sauce (tasted weird, don't recommend), boiled chicken dumpling (average), chicken and basil dumpling (first time having it, wasn't bad), egg sandwich (best thing I had). Would i go back, only if I was in the area. Not much space to sit indoors as it's always packed so best thing is to get it to go and sit at the park.

Delicious food at super low prices! Everything they make is good and it's all inexpensive. I got a few orders of fried dumplings, pork fried buns, and the pancake with sesame (which is more like bread) and all of it was delicious! I recommend going in when it's a little less busy if you want to sit down as seating is limited. Try this place it's tasty and fast and cheap and still pretty good quality :)
