I was in Boston with two Friends before a theater performance. As we walked around Chinatown trying to find someplace to eat, we walked into one restaurant and we're not impressed, as we stumbled through the city, we came upon this restaurant, our second attempt...More

I agree with all the positive reviews on this page. This place surely lives to its reputations. I did lunch here with a friend. The place is very tiny, so there may be a wait, but we got there before the lunch rush. Portions are...More

This place is amazing. The cold noodles are not what I expected. Basically blocks of pasta carved into tofu style blocks. Weird yet amazing. We ordered several types of dumplings and buns but the soup dumplings were the best. Best I've ever eaten!!

This was voted 'best in Boston' and the line in the door supported that theory. Seating is interesting, you just pick an open spot. You are served hot tea by default instead of water which I appreciated. The only disappointing item were the crab rangoons.

What I ordered, dumplings, was excellent, I also ordered Scallions. They were excellent, too. The waitresses could not have more helpful in explaining, etc.

The dumplings were doughy and tasteless. The beef noodle soup had too much soya sauce or bean paste making the whole bowl one brown concoction. The " siulongbao" were ok. On the whole, the food were not as good nor as refined as one may...More

A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences,
visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine
and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest
your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the
many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional
Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide
