Kung Fu Little Steamed Buns is one of my go to spots in Midtown. The duck buns are my favorite, though a bit oily this time. The sticky rice shu mai are tasty. I liked the shrimp and pork steamed dumplings too. Reasonably priced. Easy...More

A very small place where you are warmly welcomed. You can see the Chef preparing his pasta in the back. Unfortunately our food was really tasteless and we were definitely disappointed by our noodles. Moreover they were not capable of bringing our dishes altogether.

We asked for a recommendation from a local and he said try here. Sure he said...be prepared to scald your mouth off but the soup buns are delicious. So we came and we scalded our mouths and we agreed they are delicious. So there is...More
