Dined here one night while in Chicago for business the week of Sept 25-29th. Pot stickers were big, but lacking flavor. The dumplings were smaller, excellent and had much better flavor. The sizzling seafood plate was a big hit with plenty for two people. The beef with onions was a big miss - pot roast pulled apart and deep fried with tiny chiles and french fries (?!) and very little flavor. The fries weren't mentioned on the menu or we would've maybe ordered something else and had another hit. Our waiter was probably a family member that didn't seem very interested in waiting on a table, much less even enthused about whatever the chef's specialties might be when asked. Overall, I've had much better family Chinese in lots of smaller towns including my own in Western NC. Mastercard/Visa/cash only - no Amex.

This used to be called Ed's Potsticker House but now it's run by Ed's wife and has dropped "Ed's." The setting, service, and food are wonderful. This was our second time here after a year or so, and it's better than ever. The three of us shared a number of dishes. We started with the seafood hot and sour soup for two that was more than enough for three. A nice touch was the black vinegar served on the side that was a nice condiment for the soup. We added the delicious soup dumplings (7) that burst with the flavor of the hot liquid when bitten into. Another plate was the terrific sauteed peapod leaves that we ordered with garlic. All in all, a wonderful experience.

Traditional Northern Chinese good is served at Ed's Potsticker House. The food is authentic and delicious. Ed's offers a wide variety of dumplings to choose from. There is a dumpling for everyone in your dining party. They also have great choices for dessert, such as the fried dough with condensed milk.

I live a few blocks from this restaurant in Bridgeport and there's really 3 restaurants that offer very similar menus. In fact you can order almost the exact same dishes at all three...except for maybe the house pot stickers which are unique to Ed's...but I'm not even sure Ed is around any longer. YES...Bridgeport is the mecca for Norther Chinese dining. I've been to all three many times and really they all bring something unique to the table. I must say that my preference here is for the original Ed's. We had Cumin Lamb...Shredded Potato with Chili and House Potstickers. Wow...service was great...food was outstanding. The place was hopping with happy diners. I think the room is also the best of the three. We brought a bottle of wine as usual and I suggest anything but a red at this place with spiciness of the food. I highly recommend it!

Eds has a funny name, but great food. We rarely go wrong there and it has become our favorite Chinese place (we live relatively close by). the dumplings get a promotion, and the ordinary ones are tasty and filling, you get about a dozen. The soup filled ones are not our style, but are special if you never have had them. There are also Beijing style pancakes, with various fillings that are good, but a little oily. We really like the sauteed green beans, the Beijing style MuShu, the fish with pickled cabbage, the eggplant with ginger and especially the stir fry preserved pork and sausage. A lot of dishes may seem unfamiliar is you just go to mainline places, but explore, ask questions, you have a treat coming. The staff is friendly, and service is generally good. It can get packed, a favorite of Chinese Students, but usually one can get a table.
