We had different dumplings with prawns and vegetables. They are homemade and fresh as you can see at the entrance - just great. The service was great, too. Very well organized. Thumbs up. Was quite busy in the evening. Not sure if they take reservations.

The soup dumplings here are fantastic - thin wrapper and savory filling! Then again all the dishes we had were superb. The Shanghai style fare is hard to find in the US, so we really enjoyed the scallion pancakes and rice cake noodles, as well. On a Sunday afternoon after 1pm, we had about a 25 minute wait.

Very good food at this place, it is always busy and that is a good sign. It is on the pricey side of the scale. Quick service though.

All food was amazing, but what makes me go back it's the duck. Smoked Duck. All Dumplings and Fried Rice were very tasting and prepared very quickly. Staff very kindly.
