We stopped to grab a quick lunch prior to a foot massage at our favorite place (see review of Happy Buddha). I have to say that i was a bit disappointed with the food served (I had high expectations based on the reviews). I had a vegetarian soup which was pretty tasteless and we also shared sauteed greens which were... More

The place is always packed which is a testament to the food and service. The wonton soup, sea bass with green beans is an eternal favorite. You simply can't go wrong about this place. Try it and you will be a believer.

We had a couple different dumplings and they were great. All our meals were good too. I got the black pepper steak and it was awesome.

Started with a "Dragon Eye" cocktail. That is their version of a Lychee Martini. It tasted much different than what we are used to. Very sweet and served in a glass much smaller than a martini glass.

My friends took me here for lunch. This is a very busy place. We had the fried dumplings, soup dumplings, shrimp and chive and the pork dumplings. They were all really good. They put some sauces and condiments on the tables to mix your own dipping sauce.

Curry Dumplings and Garlic Noodles..What more can you ask for. A little small inside which makes a little of a wait but definitely worth the it.

Tasty fresh hand made dumplings with variety of fillings. Good cold dishes, but the Xia-Loang bo was just OK. Good service. Parking is terrible.
