After some issues with ordering (staff wouldn’t allow us to pick the set menu we like the sound of the most?), we ended up with the basic/cheapest set menu. But don’t be fooled. The sheer amount and quality of food and dumplings was phenomenal! There...More

Was a fun place to visit since it was essentially a tasting menu of dumplings. While shapes, colors and fillings were unique, taste was not spectacular. Great view across from Bell Tower.

We tried 10 different dumplings plus a few appetizers. Plenty of food, but came very fast between delivering. A variety of tastes and flavors but not to spicy. Everything tasted fresh.

Truly unbelievable selection of dumplings. Not all perfect but the selection was worth the entire experience. Nice service. Friendly staff who spoke decent English. NOT fine dining, but a great slice of life. Try it.

One can never imagine there are so many kinds of jiao zi (duplings) in this world! All of them are beautifully made and delicious. A plus is that the waitress speaks English. We order the set meal (over 10 kinds of Jiaozi). The quantity is...More
