The food is okay, but the Thai is a bit watery. The guy in the little booth across the street is a better value. But the Boa is good here as are the dumplings.

I went to Steamers today and was impressed. It was both quick, good and reasonably priced. They serve a couple of kinds of Chinese dumplings, a couple kinds of bow and noodles. You can see what your ordering, which is a plus with kids. My dumplings and bow came with salad and edamame and it was great.

This is a great place to excellent and quick Asian food. One can eat there or take it back to the office. I one likes boa or dumplings this is a place I highly recommaned. It location is close to most of the down town business.

This location just changed their closing hours from 6:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. This evening I went over at 4:50 to pick up dinner for a late night at work. The door was locked and the clerk had already cleaned up. She made eye contact and shrugged a "whatever." This is no way to run a business. The food is good, but the service just isn't worth it. The new earlier hours already made it difficult to patronize them for a late evening at the office. I am very disappointed.

My friend and I decided to try this place. We went online to their website and liked the menu. Atmosphere was what I expected, only smaller - felt like they stole the design from Starbuck's. Tall chairs were super uncomfortable, but I like that they have outdoor seating. We decided to try one of each dumpling - the spinich and the mushroom dumblings are the best. Their chicken salad rolls are also very good. I like that they have a sauce bar, but was expecting more sauces to choose from. The first guy who took our order was super friendly and had suggestions for how to order. We asked for a small side of steamed vegies - when he went to ask the manager if we could order that, he came back and said that managment had said "no" because there was no button on the cash register to ring this up. Ha! Is this really a reason not to let me order vegies? Are we in McDonalds? Kind of silly if you ask me. I asked again when we got to the unfriendly manager taking people's money if we could get a side of vegies and he said rigidly (without smiling or a hello) "No. Only for people who order a rice bowl". I felt like I was on Seinfeld trying to order soup - "No soup for you!" So they had vegies, they just weren't going to give them to me. I get much better service in the food court at Pioneer Place. For a newish restaurant that only has a couple of locations, you'd think they'd be a litlte more customer-friendly than this. Ridiculous!!! I also noticed they only had forks or chop sticks - no other utencils. So overall good food, but don't you dare ask for any favors from the guy in charge.

This place has the best dumplings and dipping sauces around. My personal favorite dumpling/sauce combo would have to be tomato sambal beef dumplings with the chili garlic suace. The crisp lettuce cups are excellent and I highly recommend them. I have no doubt that the rest of the menu is just as tasty, but I guess I have to wait until my next trip to Portland to find out. Unless they have plans of expanding to Southern California soon.

I love the newly expanded menu! Pad Thai Noodles are my personal favorite and now they have it on their menu. Dumplings are great too, my favorite is the Ginger Pork with the Chili Garlic Sauce and the Edamame is addictive!!! The people are friendly and service is great. Keep up the good work!

This very unique concept is definitely worth experiencing. I enjoyed "sauce tasting" with the large variety of dumplings to choose from. It is a very clean, cozy, fun place. I'll be a regular!!

My family and I were drawn to the cool look of the place while walking thru downtown. The dim sum was great and the sauces very tasty (chili garlic has a kick!). My kids even enjoyed it and they are very picky. The menu is simple, but enough choices. I also had one of their green teas and it was very authentic and flavorful. The service was excellent and prices are cheap. If I lived or worked downtown, I would go everyday!
