Went to this place today for lunch. The man who served us was surly and rude. The 'chef' simply took pre made and obviously shop bought dumplings out of a packet from a freezer and put them in a steamer. The 'salad' was just iceberg...More

Rude staff and food 'cooked' ie out of freezer bags in front of you. Complaining isn't even worth it. Took two pounds off the bill and it was still 7.50 a head for frozen dumplings. Awful.

The dumplings were ok but the noodles were plain as hell and everything comes out of the freezer to be 'cooked' in front of you. The owner was incredibly unfriendly and resents having to serve customers. I suppose at least it's cheap.

This is a small chinese dumpling restaurant in the North Lanes. There is a small selection of dumplings and Udon noodles to choose from. If you are very hungry just take both. There is some special sauce included to pour over the dumplings and some...More
