If your a party larger than 2 do go - rude owners, don't have time to serve a large party- told us they didn't care if we didn't come back they were busy enough! How do they stay open?

The service was quick and friendly. We had 3 dishes, Dan Dan noodles, pan fried dumplings and Shanghai dumpling. The Dan Dan noodles was the best dish - plenty of flavor. The pan fried dumplings were nicely cooked and quite different in presentation but acceptable. The Shanghai dumplings were a mixed bag. The skin was nice and thin, the dumplings... More

It you know Taiwanese Chinese food you will love this little jewel on Federal Blvd. I spent many weeks in Taiwan and later in China and I think this is about as good as it gets. It was so good we went back a few days later.

As others have said, this is a tiny (24 seat) no frills restaurant completely run by a sweet elderly couple. Even though the TA reviews set my expectations, I was still amazed by small size of the dining room and the incredible efficiency of the owners. The food was truly crave inducing. Once you eat here the first time you... More

Lao Wang by the looks of it, is a strip mall restaurant. What happens once you cross the threshold is pure magic. This place is ran by an older gentleman and his lovely wife. They work together and tag team the restaurant to take orders, serve, and check out. The soup dumplings here are to die for and the Dan... More

For the last 20 years in San Fran or Houston, no soup dumplings !! They are to time consuming and old school. Hard to make. Worth the wait for lunch or dinner. The best with there own chili sauce and vinegar. Very small and only 10 tables made by had by an elderly husband and wife team. Could not be... More

My companion and I had one of the most bizarre and awful dining experiences here. Memorable for the wrong reasons. The combination of low quality, overpriced food with bad service and nasty, hostile owners is a perfect setting if you are into self-abuse. Perhaps it was once worthy of positive reviews but let me advise you to steer clear of... More

It's a hole in the wall and the parking is horrible, but they have the best pot stickers! The soup dumplings and dan dan noodles are good as well.

Get in, sit down and order two orders of dumplings and an order of potstickers per person. Black vinegar and chili paste to dip and enjoy one of the finest dumplings you'll ever have with a side of perfect potsticker. No frills just authentic Chinese.

Having been to Taiwan this year, my husband and I have gotten pretty picky about our dumplings, but Lao Wang does not disappoint. This mom and pop shop offers traditional dumplings. We loved the dumplings and the pot stickers. The xaio long bao were not as good as some of the other things on the menu.
