First, I'll just cut to the chase - this place is really, really good. It's hard to find great dumplings, and they have them. Soup dumplings are usually the family fave, but we liked the won ton dumplings even better. I'll admit this place is...More

My family and I were looking for a nice Chinese restaurant for dinner and came across The Gourmet Dumpling House. The minute we walked through the door we were hit with a very disorganised restaurant. We could not get a table so we had to...More

The dumplings and scallion pancake were killer. Don’t expect amazing service as there is a bit of a language barrier with some of the servers. Small place that can get full quickly. Totally worth it if you know what you’re getting into though.

My expirience was bad! The service was very very RUDE!  They added 20% tip to the check without even inform me. As much as I know I decide whether or not to give tip. It's a tourist trap, I should have read the previous reviews...More

visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine
and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,
and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest
your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the
many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional
Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide
