I absolutely love Chinese food. I especially love dumplings and potstickers. Katy’s Dumplings in Oak Park is, in my opinion, the best place to enjoy authentic Chinese dumplings and potstickers.
I try to make it out to the Oak Park area to try Katy’s Dumplings at least once a month. Whenever I go, I order so much food, because everything on the menu is fantastic.
I have some go-to favorite dishes that are a must when I visit this restaurant. The pork with chives dumplings and the Chengdu dumplings are fantastic, especially with the spicy chili oil. The three chili chicken is fantastic with perfect amounts of spice. The orange chicken is always perfectly crispy with perfect hints of orange flavor.
Katy’s Dumplings also hand-makes all of their noodles for their noodle dishes. Their noodle dishes are so rich in flavor. My personal favorite is the Chengdu Dan Dan noodle. It is coated in a delicious spicy sauce and it is the best noodle dish that I have ever had.
Another item that is a must-try is their fresh fruit smoothies. My personal favorite is the fresh pineapple. The flavor of the smoothie is so refreshing and really compliments all the salty and spicy foods you may have here.
I love Katy's Dumplings, but of course, the restaurant is not perfect. Service here can sometimes be very spotty or rushed. Items sometimes are forgotten with orders and it may take some time to get my server's attention once my food is brought to the table. Also, the parking is very limited in the Oak Park area. Be prepared to pay for parking in a lot that might not really be close to the restaurant.
I really love this restaurant and I highly recommend it for its true authentic Chinese food. I will definitely be back. I give it a rating of 8 out of 10.
