Visited Virgina and UVA with my friend last month (Oct 2014), we walked down the main street and saw this dumpling place. Being a Chinese and spent my childhood in HK in the 70s/80s, there are some food you don't get to see them anymore even in HK, sesame cold noodle is definitely one of them. At first, I didn't...

These folks have three outposts, all serving the same delicious, simple menu. My favorite is the one in Seminole Square Shopping Center for its eclectic decor. The food is uniformly great, always prepared for you quickly and so very inexpensive. Whatever you purchase will be good, with my favorite meal the dumplings and the cold noodles.

I stumbled across this restaurant in The Corner area of Charlottesville with a group of friends. What a great little place (and it is small), but the service is quick and the dumplings are fresh and delicious.

Sesame noodles were tasty. Veggie bun was fresh. Somewhat small portions. A decent quick lunch. I would probably go back if I needed something on-the-go.

You don't have to be staying at the nearby reasonably priced Hampton Inn to enjoy this great place ! Limited menu of great items, I had the dumplings, cold noodles with peanut sauce and a pork bun for ten bucks! so tasty I want to go back for more. A super interesting decor for those who are dining in.

Real simple, Marco & Lucas had the best dumplings we ever had!!! Quick, quirky, and cheap! Super simple menu, super fast, no thrills, and great dumplings. I wish they were here in CT!!!

Fantastic dumplings, yummy sesame noodles. We got several orders of dumplings, and then got some more, and then decided to try the spicy noodles. All amazing, and cheap.

We really enjoyed our lunch here. The dumplings were delicious and my husband enjoyed his spicy noodles. I loved the sesame noodles and wish I could find them at home. If you're looking for a quick, inexpensive lunch this is the place to go.

My dad and my sister decided to give this place a try. They enjoyed the dumplings, although they were pretty small. The sesame noodles and the spicy noodles, though, were not as memorable. At average prices, there are definitely worse places to go to.
