Found this place on T/A while roaming Boston. It was very busy when we arrived early afternoon. We were told it would be 20-30 minutes for a table, and we decided to stick around and wait. While we were waiting, we were given menus to...More

Had takeout from here - ordered Pork Dumplings only. Was a 30 minute wait but they were excellent. Could tell they were freshly made and filled. Juicy little devils. Area is also worth a walk around. Supposedly the 4th largest Chinatown in USA

The pork and leek buns and the spicy eggplant with pork are not to be missed! The other two dishes we ordered were perfectly fine but semi forgettable. Overall, decent spot in Chinatown.

This is the best place for freshly-made dumplings. It is busy and may be a long wait, but it is well-worth the wait. The dumplings are delicious and savory. We also enjoyed other vegetarian options on the menu.

A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences,
visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine
and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the
iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler,

your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the
