Delicuous veggies, dumplings, and buns, even good choices for a vegetarian. Yes, it's cash only--weird! But sooo delicious. Service and atmosphere are on the casual side. Very busy so pick a non peak time. Highly recommend.

Very enjoyable, awesome dim sum! One of the best restaurants in Philly full stop, not just in its own cuisine

Don’t get anything else, just order them. If you’re still hungry order more! We are not big fans of restaurants with the pictures of the food on the menu so we didn’t really try anything else but the soup dumplings are to die for!

I am a dumpling lover and this place surpassed my expectations. The soup dumplings are life-changingly good. The wonton soup is pretty good, though not on par with the soup dumplings. The ambiance is nice and the servers are friendly and efficient. I actually ate...More
