Excellent Dumpling House Restaurant Review

: You may be able to get dim sum uptown these days, but not at the low prices you'll find in Chinatown. The Excellent is an excellent spot to explore a myriad of plump, juicy Chinese dumplings. Be sure also to try the scallion pancakes, the fried wontons, or the delightful hot-and-sour chicken noodle soup.
