I have family who live just down the street from this branch of Excellent Dumpling House, so when I had a hankering for xiao long bao on a recent visit, nothing could have been more convenient than a pit stop here. The dumplings lived up...More

The restaurant isn’t actually in China Town but is certainly worth a visit! Relatively cheap and you get good sized portions. I would certainly advise ordering dumplings as they were delicious.

The dumplings are great. The sizzling plates are fantastic. I’m a vegetarian, the vegetables and mushrooms were very fresh. The sauces used in their dishes and spot on.

I can't remember everything we ordered - we ordered a lot of dim sum. But the pot stickers were the best that I can remember eating. The shu mai were also outstanding. It wasn't very busy when we were there. Friendly service and cold beer.
