Tiny place that often has a line, and I might add that waiting is justified. Several varieties of fillings, but I personally like the pork. You can watch the workers make the dumplings and will probably end up sharing a table which only adds to...More

Go early - queued for about an hour when I reached the place at 5.50pm. Soup dumplings were great - they're better than Nanxiang. Taste is heavier than Nanxiang. Not sure I'll queue an hour again for these, but definitely worth a trip down during...More

These guys are consistent with their food quality as well as their wait time at the lineup outside. We ordered the original soup dumplings and they tasted just as good as our first visit 10 years ago. We will keep coming back whenever we travel...More

Hoping for a shorter line, we went around 1:45pm. But it was just a hope. Ended up waiting in line for about 40 minutes, waiting for food for another 15-20 minutes. My husband and I had 1 pan that consisted was of egg yolk, pork,...More
