    Another great dining experience at one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The General Tso's & French Onion soup dumplings are incredible. I also really enjoyed the Crispy Pig's Ear Pad Thai. I do miss the pho soup dumplings and pork ramen and hope they make a return to the menu in the future.

    Food was really good, appetizer portions were pretty small for the price though which is why I’m giving it 4 stars. Main dishes were good sized. Our server had a killer mustache and was super knowledgeable.

    The food was fabulous and unique- the crab rangoons were the best I had in my life and the soup filled dumplings were a rare treat. Even the ice cream dessert in a parfait glass was phenomenal. Will definitely be back. The price was fair, too.

    Came here before a show and ordered everything all at the same time. We got our apps but then after a long while our waitress asks if there was anything else she could get us and our main entrees still hadn’t come out. She didn’t put them in. Unfortunately we didn’t have another 20mins to wait, eat and make our show. She half heartedly apologized and made no concessions. I love this place but if you’re going on a time constraint maybe think twice.

    We were excited to try all of the dumplings here. And we were not disappointed! Loved the general tso and French onion soup dumplings…so good. We also liked the bao buns. The cauliflower lollipops were ok. Kind of a gummy exterior but the insides were good. Cocktails were tasty as well! Service was good, not great…just waiting a bit for everything. I’d go back to have more dumplings…wish there were more even.
