The dumplings are pretty good and it's the only reason why I would come. Have also tried the Taiwanese beef noodle soup which was alright but I would rather stick with the dumplings as that's what they're known for.

We dropped in for a quick lunch while at the Central Market. The place was well attended for pre lunchtime on a Wednesday. Could be seated in or out, we chose inside. I had 8 dumplings in noodles (I chose pork but there were two other choices) My wife had vegetable in noodles. Both were a generous size and we... More

Food was better than my expectation. And the price was reasonable. I would go there again. Parking is not the simplest around that place.

We loved the peking pork dumplings, they were cooked perfectly. The dumplings are bigger than normal, with the handmade chilli sauce they were fantastic.

Nothing will compare to Melbourne dumplings - but this comes close! Cheap and delicious. The decor is basic and the service is lacking during busy times, but the food more than makes up for it.

Always delicious dumplings. When busy the service can be lacking but it's so popular and they are quick to bring the food out so you can't really complain. Chicken & prawn steamed dumplings are my favourites!!

The Dumpling King has become my favourite eatery in Adelaide. I just love their Chili Oil dumplings, simple but perfect. Their large menu will have something great for anyone. Dumpling King offers fresh hot green tea to all customers for free. This means customers don't have to fork out extra money to keep hydrated. I often take note that some... More

It's in front of China Town and easy to find. A lot of foods have photo displayed and quite easy to pick. I went for dinner and ordered wonton noodle soup - price was very good and the size of dish was huge. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good budget meal. Cash only.
