Amazing dumplings. You go in the door, place your order on a Chit. Dumplings and other goodies are prepared, you get them and find a chair. High volume, high turnover. Definitely a step above street food. Plain Jane, hot pork dumplings w. a few sesames...More

Great dumplings. No English spoken, but we managed and it was fun. From exit 4 at linden lu metro, walk north (left side of the street) several blocks. This location is very convenient to the old city sights and gardens.
