worst experience 4/22/2012

I forgot my shades there and they just took them. We went there for dinner recently and left late - I realized I forgot my RayBan's the same night when I got home. When I called right at opening the next day they said that they didnt have them and were quick with accusations that I forgot them elsewhere or didnt bring them... got very unfriendly and defensive right away. Even when i stopped by they just blew me off. I am so disgusted with their behavior and attitude. Never go there again! more

Dough aballs, not dumplings! 10/23/2009

At the recommendation of a friend, we ate dinner here tonight. We now regret this decision. To give this some context, the price range was $7-$12 per person, even though we mostly ordered appetizers as opposed to entrées (interestingly, dumplings only come in appetizers). Upon entering the restaurant, we were immediately struck by the lack of any Asian customers---always a bad sign when eating at a ""Chinese"" restaurant. We ordered a variety of differently shaped and sized dumplings. First, the steamed chicken dumplings---as any Asian would tell you, dumplings should *not* have skin up to a centimeter thick. Although they contained an ample amount of dry, flavorless ground chicken breast, these ""dumplings"" can only be described as dry, chewy, flavorless balls of dough. The experience was not much different for the fried pork dumplings. My brother ordered the Szechuan dumplings with peanut sauce. Luckily, these did not have centimeter-thick skin. Instead, they were soaked in a disturbingly sweet sauce which was clearly mostly (sweet) peanut butter. When we first saw this dish, we thought that it contained two different colors of dumplings. We later realized that the brown ones were simply normal dumplings whose skins were washed off by the peanut butter sauce. My half-cousin decided to try his luck with the orange beef entrée for a whopping $12.00. Although it wasn't nearly as bad as the others, he was appalled at the tiny amount of rice given. My sister's friend ordered the shrimp dumplings for $5.75, hoping that it would be filling. Unfortunately, in contrast to the starch-filled dough balls, these were six tiny pieces, about the size of a ping pong ball. Needless to say, this friend was not satisfied with the meal. Finally, we ordered a pork lo mein. Although it was very plain and far too salty, this was the least putrid dish that we ordered. Take it from a Chinese person, the food here was horrible, don't waste your money here. Pros: No redeeming qualities. Cons: Stomach-turning food. more

I'm stopping in Pittsburgh on my way to see my family and we're stopping here before we head out of town!!! 2/19/2008

I haven't lived in Pittsburgh for over 7 years and every time I come back through the first thing I want to do is to eat at The New Dumpling House. I don't usually like Chinese and I LOVE this place! I even lived in Chinatown for a few years and wouldn't eat at any of the restaurants there. My absolute favorite ir the vegetable platter with bean curd,sauteed string beans and steamed vegetables. Also, the dumplings are absolutely the best!!!!! I highly recommend this place!!!!If you're ever in Pittsburgh, or you already live there,you must make your way to Squirrel Hill and eat eat eat ! Oh,by the way,there's a Japenese restaurant attached to it so if you need some sushi,you're there! Pros: The food is amazing! Cons: Sometimes the service is a bit rushed(or so I remember),but just ignore it and enjoy more

decent take-out food 11/24/2004

I think this place is better as take-out than for eating there. I would recomment NOT eating the wonton soup. I don't know what they used as the filling, but it looks like the discards of meat. Otherwise, I like their string beans and their hunan chicken is quite spicy but good. This might be a good place to order from for group meetings. Pros: string beans, ambience, service more

the best chinese in pittburgh! 6/23/2002
