This is my " go to" place for yummy dumplings! I have Ben here three times and we always get the chicken and Napa cabbage dumplings. The dumpling soup is tasty and so is the chicken fried rice. I rated it "very good" because when I ordered the chicken sticks, the spice they added after it was cooked was too spicy for our taste.
You know the dumplings are good when you can see a lady in the back hand make them through a glass window.

The place is hidden in the side roads of San Mateo. You can pass by it and not notice it. It's small and fits only a small number of people. That said, the food is here is real good! Been in the bay area for over a year now and today was the first time R & I have really tasty dumplings actually tasty food in general. We kinda went over board when we ordered as we wanted to try a little bit of everything. We had the lamb skewers to die for, some great sesame beef pancake , jelly fish and cucumber (which was not real jelly fish to our disappointment but mushroom) and 3 types of dumplings: -Beef and shrimp combo: very very good. -soup dumpling: filled with absolutely delicious soup and beef. -Chicken and corn; kinda sweet but very tasty. -Lamb dumplings: these babies were the highlight of the meal. If you are a fan of lamb you are gonna love these! We also got a free chicken chow mein unlocked from yelp. The whole meal was really enjoyable, the lady serving us was very friendly and always smiling.

Oh and they only take cash!!
