Foursquare Tips

  • Dumpling is da bomb!
  • Don't eat here if you don't speak mandarin. Racist!
  • French style beef, beef noodle soup, and of course the juicy pork dumplings
  • Closed on Wednesdays.
  • 8 dumplings, a veggie dish, 3 shizitou, 2 bowls of rice for $20? Deal.
  • Even though the dumpling was good, service was bad. Long wait on Sunday night. Chef special mushroom beef was lame. Don't think any of chef special is their specialties
  • XLB are a given.. But Mama Lu's Fried Pancake ALSO FTW. So good. Sliced up and sauteed fried pancake w/ pork. So good!
  • Shanghai cuisine so everything is sweet. Surprisingly, the spicy oil dumpling were not sweet. Very good value for the price though it's not exactly the best.
  • The xiao long baos here are great. The crab ones are popular. Also the green onion pancake is good. The nian gao is not good
  • Spicy wontons were really good, shanghai chow mein, yang chow fried rice
  • Fried coconut buns and beef roll
  • The XLB and scallion pancake are good but I've had better. Massive line with poor management.
  • French style beef tenderloin is the best!
  • Beef roll - Niu ro juen bing: sweet, rich, salty, and fresh veggies.
  • Dumpling and this mushroom tofu dish was soooo yum. Also chili wontons!
  • Fantastic beef roll!!
  • The shrimp and pork dumplings with green onion are also really good!
  • You've got to try the soup dumplings - simply delish! But my favorite part of the meal was the Chinese broccoli yum!
  • Big portions of Chinese food, but long waits during lunch and dinner rush
  • The XLB, green onion pancake and kung pao chicken were all great. 20 min wait on a Tuesday night. Def busy and service is lacking but food more than makes up for it.
