    Came here for some late night food -- left with a full stomach and great memories. The atmosphere if this place is great for a lunch or late night experience..

    These are decent dumplings, pricier compared to other dumpling houses. The pumpkin dumplings are the dessert to get. They also sell frozen dumplings. Cash only but they do have an ATM machine.

    Great for a dumpling binge followed by a very long nap. Huge juicy dumplings made by tiny Chinese grandmothers on the other side of the glass. Don't forget monster sauce!

    Totally underrated dumpling spot in the city. It's quaint and has top notch hand made dumplings. I LOVED the soup dumplings. They had a little less broth than I'm used to - still great favor though.

    The pumpkin dumplings are great and I don't even eat pumpkin. Loved the pork dumplings with the green curry sauce. Pay extra and get that sauce. You won't regret it!

    I'm convinced the creator of Snapchat lived across the street because their logo is very similar to Dumpling Man's. This spot has very solid dumplings but also try their cold sesame noodles.

    Quick, cheap and amazing. Shrimp dumplings are my favorite with corn in them. Very cool to sit and watch them being made

    Get the traditional pork dumplings there and bring home some frozen dumplings for home. The hot monster and cold monster sauces really add a lot of flavor.

    Got the sampler, all phenomenal. They only have bubble tea in the summer. Cool monster and Asian tahini sauce both very good but $1.50? And $.50 take out charge...

    Gotta late night crave for dumplings? This spot will do. Though overpriced compared to Chinatown, they're tasty dumplings & buns. The soup dumplings lacked broth. Not the best, spot but good overall.

    Everything here is made fresh, right where you can see it. Try an order of 6 dumplings of their famous seared pork , fried or steamed for $4.50. Talk about cheap, delish eats!

    The seared pork dumplings with the cool monster sauce almost makes me wish I lived in ny so I could eat them all the time. Even broke you can still afford this place with dumplings under $1 a piece

    The tehina sauce is amazing. I ordered 14 dumplings for dinner and it was too much, so perfect for lunch the next day. Quick service too

    The veggie dumplings are delicious- you don’t even need the sauce (but that’s great too!) great dressing on the green salad.

    I often direct day plans to the LES, just so I can "casually" wind up here. Best dumplings in NYC. You can watch the love being pleated into these hearty pillows of goodness. Hot monster sauce it up.

    Pork dumplings. Steamed. Good thing I live in Queens or I'd eat them for every meal. They're affordable too so I'd probably save money by doing this...

    soup dumplings don't compare to Joe's Shanghai, but everything else is really spot on. If you are hungry and its lunch-time, I would suggest 8-10 and mix it up re: seared and steamed.

    Surprise veggie trumps regular veg dumplings. FYI: M-F from 3-5 pm they only have regular dumplings available, and only fried. No steamed, no surprise dumplings. But they are only $3.50 for 6.

    Cash only. These were among the best dumplings I've ever had and I'm like the Cookie Monster... But with dumplings... Instead of cookies...

    Best visited during off hours. Tiny location. All the quality of China Town Dumplings wo the language barrier. Try the Sweetie.

    Try the dessert dumplings. I know what you're thinking, but fight that naysaying, party-pooping skepticism and get the sweet banana dumpling.

    Best dumplings in the city? Almost certainly, but only one way to be sure. When you finish the circuit, some celebratory Dumpling Man is sure to be in order.

    Don't skip the green Vegan dumplings! The mushroom and tofu filling is better than meat. http://insidenewyork.com/2012/02/26/dumpling-man-not-your-mothers-dumplings/

    A bit overrated, but the pork dumplings are solid. The veggie ones were really bland. Go down to Chinatown for your dumpling cravings though if you can.

    Awesome dumplings. But for some reason, they will call out your number to avoid eye contact, even if the place is empty. Joe's Shanghai has better soup dumplings.

    Pork is definitely the best. Veggie was not very good. These dumplings are like twice the size of most other places though.

    A TINY little restaurant with homemade dumplings made minutes before they're cooked to order just for you. (And you can watch them being made!) Get the steamed pork w/cool monster sauce! Yum!

    These dumplings really hit the spot. Get them seared or steamed, and a side of monster sauce. Delicious.
