Whether you eat the dumplings or any of the noodles, everything here is fantastic and flavorful. There is a guy making the fresh dumplings and noodles at the front near the cashiers and he sends them to the back for cooking. Then your food comes hot and so tasty. Noodles dishes, soups, dumplings all come out fairly quick. If you... More

Came here this past weekend and all 5 of us had fantastic meals. 2 of us had been here before but this was my wife and my first time. Fabulous dumplings and noodle soup, apparently super authentic. Scallion pancake was made different but absolutely delicious. We couldn't stop talking about how good the food was. Great prices, huge portions. Got... More

GREAT SPOT FOR A CHEAP, QUICK, WHOLESOME MEAL. I usually come here after work when I am really tired and don't want to cook. They have fresh handmade noodles on the spot, dumplings and cold appetizers. I highly recommend their Ma La Tang (spicy numbing noodle soup) which is comparable to the other Sichuan restaurants in Flushing. It is very... More

The place was clean, with a decent amount of tables. Lots of dumpling dishes and soups and rice. And the prices are definitely good. Staff is overall friendly, though their English skills are a little lacking.

The dumplings were the best I've ever had. Scallion pancakes, not so good. Cold. Much better at other places that serve them warm. You order at counter, and take food to table. Not table service! All the locals had the soup bowls, but we thought they were just ok. Beef stew was too fatty for our liking. Pork bun was... More

Their hand drawn noodles are really good. Their portions are pretty big too compared to other chinese restaurants. I usually only need 2 orders to share between my wife and 2 kids. The beef stew is phenomenal. Their fried dumplings are also great. It is probably better if you have them there but if you do take out instead, simply... More

No frills neighborhood Chinese eatery. Hand-pulled noodles made fresh onsite by a guy behind the counter. Very authentic. Homemade hot chili sauce available on every table if you like your food fiery hot. Cash only.

Do not be put off by the unassuming building or the long line. Service is quick and efficient. I recommend that you walk to the back of this small restaurant, sip the complimentary tea and watch as the pulled noodles are being prepared; it is an art. Hot tea was available, it was to the right as we entered the... More
