Houston Press' Description

In a shopping center full of crappy fast food and ultra-expensive chains, E-Tao is a welcome happy medium: a low-key, low-cost restaurant with great food. Situated near Nordstrom in the Galleria IV, the newest of the expansions to the gigantic mall, E-Tao serves traditional Sichuan favorites that are far more authentic than one would expect for mall food. While it's gaining a following for its soup dumplings (xiaolongbao), the rice-and-pork-stuffed chicken wings are equally excellent.

    Chinese soup dumplings, one of the best in town. $7.95 gets you a basket of succulent house-made soup dumplings with a broth that is incredibly rich yet not greasy. Galleria area, so convenient!

    Order the dim sum platter. Its perfect as an entree or to share!

  • Julianne A. on 10/04/11

    Their specialty is the soft shell crab fried rice and it's as good as it sounds.

  • Michael L. on 06/12/12

    Try the Chinese soup dumplings and Softshell crab fried brown rice. This place is The Galleria's little secret.
