Foursquare Tips

  • Tony's Special Pot Stickers: The thin and crispy layers of dough kind of resemble phyllo, but aren't nearly as heavy as you'd imagine. Instead, each crackly bite gives way to a seasoned ground pork.
  • Thought youd want to know: Tony Hu has been nominated for Restaurateur of the Year in Time Out Chicagos 2011 Eat Out Awards. Vote now!
  • I enjoyed the lamb dumplings as an appetizer - but be warned: it takes about 12 - 15 minutes to prepare. The wait is worth it though.
  • Must try their TOFU NOODLES. Though I was skeptical at first, it was surprisingly delicious.
  • A treasure in Chicago's Chinatown. Try the garlic eggplant, salt and pepper shrimp, and the Famous Beijing Noodles - you won't be disappointed.
  • The Peking duck and Beijing style eggplant are both great.
  • Pancake Northern Style, Tony's Special Pot Stickers (skinny and cigar like),
  • Portions are huge! Loved the spicy shrimp and pork with hand pulled noodles. Potstickers were very good and made with fresh veggies. Does not serve alcohol.
  • Portions are huge! Menu is misleading as they do NOT serve any alcohol. Hand spun noodles with shrimp and pork was amazing! Vegetable potstickers were super fresh and yummy. Onion pancake also good.
  • Try the Spicy Hand-Made Korean Style Noodles at Tony Hus Lao Beijing. The noodles in this dish are toothsome with a nice amount of spring and firmness.
  • Dumplings and food is great
  • The paper table clothes are a rouse- this place is actually aces. Vegetable pot stickers were so good I was almost upset I had eaten other pot stickers before.
  • Definitely get Tony's Special Pot Stickers. Also, dried chili chicken is delicious and very hot.
  • The cold noodles are good here, but everything else sucks.
  • This was a great place to eat. It was very authentic. Highly recommended.
  • noodles with black bean sauce, dumplings
  • My favorite Tony Hu go-to spot. Old school classics are great here, but I love the handmade Korean style noodles. Lamb dishes are great as well. Go family style and share with the table.
  • Be prepared to wait for a table, but so worth the wait
  • Best hotpot in the city! (spicy) Don't bother going anywhere else for hotpot!
  • Spicy Korean-Style Noodles are fantastic, and you can't go wrong with Tony's Famous Pan Fried Chive Dumpling, Fried Eggplant, Dan Dan Noodles, or the Sunshine Seafood Dumplings.
