Village Voice's Description

Full House is part of a new generation of Shanghai restaurants in the city’s Chinatowns, offering not only the full range of Shanghai cuisine, but also a choice collection of Sichuan, Hong Kong, Thai, Northern Chinese, and even American dishes (well, restricted to french fries and Buffalo wings). The Shanghai stuff includes a wonderful rendition of crab-and-pork-stuffed soup dumplings, braised pork shoulder, lion head meatballs, mock duck, and
dozens of others, plus a dozen permutations of Shanghai-style lo mein, thicker than the usual noodle. Predictably, the Sichuan dishes are spicy, but somewhat lacking in the tongue-numbing peppercorns that characterize the cuisine. Don’t miss the nifty luncheon special, which includes main dish, plenty of rice, and a choice of soups at a
laughably low price. Full House boasts two levels: the blue-lit downstairs seems almost like a disco, while the upstairs, favored by families, is more laid-back, with traditional Chinatown restaurant décor. Though wine is offered, Thai beer is the beverage to order. --Robert Sietsema

Tips from foursquare

  • 7th.List on 01/22/12

    Delicious: Fried yellow fish fillet with bean curd skin; sweet bun with milky egg yellow

  • Joel Chang on 10/26/12

    Dong po pork ftw!

  • Cassandra S. on 03/21/11

    DONG PO PORK. It comes as a sort of build-it-yourself pork bun, and, no joke, trumps Momofuku.

  • Anna G. on 04/26/13

    By far the best xiao long bao in NYC

  • Valentin G. on 12/02/13

    Take the Steamed Crab Meat & Pork Juicy Dumplings and the Wonton in spicy sauce
