Excellent Dumpling House is a historical place in Chinatown. When we opened in 1983, Chinatown was half the size of what it is now. Canal Street is the artery of the Chinatown. The restaurant is located on Lafayette Street between Canal Street and Walker Street, less than a block away from the Canal Street subway station. We were one of the few dumpling houses in New York City in the 80’s. Today, many restaurants offer dumpling or dim sum in various forms. But not every dumpling house is created equal. Our recipes have been well received and praised by our customers.

In the past 28 years, the restaurant has served millions of customers and it is growing up with them. Throughout the years, Chef Wah Suk, (Uncle Wah in Chinese) has learned, improved and renovated his dishes to ensure good taste, quality and originality. Dim Sum chef Kwong brought in his experience from the Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong and The Peak Hong Kong. Like our name, we will continue to strive for excellence and ensure the best quality for our customers.
