This place has been outstanding for me. The first time I went there, I ordered chicken with broccoli (my test run) and I actually saw the owners wife cutting a fresh pience of chicken and using fresh broccoli. The owner then said he gets all the ingredients from Chinatown each morning. The tatse, price, and service were outstanding. The only flow was that he asked me twice twice, are you sure you dont wantt dumplings. My second time there I got the dumplings and they were outstand...view moreing as well.view lessProvided by Citysearch

I love Plump Dumplings. The owner is always friendly and he cooks up some really yummy Malaysian style dishes such as spicy curry noodle soups and home-made fat dumplings.
My favorite dishes here are the spicy curry char-shew (Chinese BBQ) noodle soup as well as their dumplings. they also have really good tomato beef over fried rice. Recently they added Banh-Mih sandwiches to their menu and they taste pretty good too although they are not as cheap as those in Chinatown.
After a difficult search for a good East Village Chinese restaurant, I came across Plump Dumpling. As the name implies, their dumplings are fantastic, and they also serve the usual Chinese and apparently Vietnamese menu. I've had the bubble tea as well. The prices are great, and you feel like you're having a great economic meal you might usually only find in China Town.Provided by Citysearch
I walked in after being drawn by the delicious smell in one hungry afternoon. After my first bite of the juicy veggie dumpling, I was hooked. Peter's unique process of dumpling making holds in so much flavor, it was like an explosion in my mouth! Thank you for your delicious dumplings Peter. They are so fresh and stayed warm all the way back to my office where I ate them under the eyes of jealous onlookers.Provided by Citysearch
The dumplings are great, especially the steamed pork ones, but I also like their Mandarin roast duck/chicken noodle dishes the best. Recently I've also been ordering their General Tso's chicken & shrimp combo. Very scrumptious and the shrimp pieces are jumbo.
I live in the neighborhood, and this is literally the only place I go to for Chinese food!
Worst chinese food ever. I ordered Pepper Steak for Lunch, it came with white rice, hot & sour soup. Pepper steak is fine, but white rice is very dry, taste like 3 days old rice, and especially hot & sour soup is horrible. literary, nothing in the soup, I found only 1 slice of mushroom, and taste too sour. Not friendly. Don't even try this chinese food.Provided by Citysearch
I always get delivery or take out from this place since it's near my job. You really can't go wrong with their lunch specials. They are a reliable chinese food takeout/delivery place that is super quick. my best bets are the DUMPLING and anything fried rice. I've had their sliced chicken and broccoli (also good, but not a fan of the texture of the chicken). I love this place tho because they are so quick with delivery it's amazing. If you need a place for good sesame chicken, this is ...view moreit! \rview lessProvided by Citysearch
