Blogger Reviews of Mama's Lu

  • Is It Any Good on Feb 27, 2014

    What I would say is, going to Mamas Lu is more like going to your Moms house for Dumplings, instead of the ever impressive Taipei-Shanghaiese machine that is Din Tai Fung. The food just feels a bit more handcrafted, and handmade.

  • JenniferCraving xiao long bao outside of dim sum hours? Mama Lu's Dumpling House always pulls through -- if you don't mind a little bit of a wait, that is.

  • Arash DWould not go back here. We sat down at 8:30pm and by 9 we were asked to pay and finish up or take out the food. Not a good experience as I didn't get the chance to enjoy the food I ordered.

  • Katherine M.Thin-skinned, soup-filled xiao long bao without the long wait of Din Tai Fung, whose Arcadia location is (let's face it) not as good as Taiwan's anyway.

    55555 by Katherine M.

  • Bianca Lo8 dumplings, a veggie dish, 3 shizitou, 2 bowls of rice for $20? Deal.

    33333 by Bianca Lo


  • Edward K.One bowl of white rice here is enough for 2 people. Be aware of how hungry you are before you order!

    33333 by Edward K.


  • Helen T.Their Xiao Long Bao is not bad, but the best in my opinion is still Joe's Shanghai in NYC. Bar Shanghai, China.

    55555 by Helen T.


  • Nikita S.Even though the dumpling was good, service was bad. Long wait on Sunday night. Chef special mushroom beef was lame. Don't think any of chef special is their specialties
