Vanessa’s Dumpling House Opening on UWS

  Last modified on September 1st, 2020

A new dumpling spot is opening on the Upper West Side! According to an Instagram post by TradedNY, Vanessa’s Dumpling House will be setting up shop at 452 Amsterdam Avenue, between 81st and 82nd Streets. The asking price was $12,500, though the post did not indicate what the agreed upon price was.

The former occupant at 452 Amsterdam Ave was Treat House, which closed earlier this year.

Vanessa’s Dumpling House “specializes in Chinese snacks such as hand-made dumplings, buns, sesame pancakes, and noodles.” According the their website, the family-run business was launched in 1999 with a location in Chinatown.

They now have additional locations in Williamsburg, the Financial District and Long Island City.

Vanessa’s offers both hand-made dumplings to eat on location, and bags of 50 frozen dumplings which you can take to go.

In addition, they offer buns and stuffed pancakes, noodle soups, and beverages including bubble teas and smoothies.


Zagat’s review of Vanessa’s Dumpling House emphasizes quality food for reasonable prices, but not much in terms of service or hospitality (and limited seating).
