Amongst the various Asian restaurants in Cliffside Park, but quitely hidden off the main thoroughfare is the unassuming Petite Soo Chow Chinese Restaurant. The tiny parking lot is always full and nightly, at some point in time, you’ll find a line out the door waiting for a seat within its crowded dining room.
I’ve had a pleasure of eating there on multiple occasions giving me a chance to try out their wide range of Chinese cuisine; from banquet style to dim sum. The food is decent and quite authentic, there are even a few dishes you probably wouldn’t find anywhere else besides in Mainland China. However, I will suggest, especially if it is your first visit to stick with orders of their now famous steamed pork dumplings.
I find that their dumplings are by far one of if not the best steamed dumplings that I have ever had. Again, their food is decent, but if you are looking for exquisite entrees, I could think of a few other places I’d rather go to.
It is quite inexpensive to dine here and if you are claustrophobic, this might not be the place for you because you are almost literally seated on top of your fellow diners. Servers speak English and the menu contains English translation.
