I guess you know a dumpling restaurant is no good when there are no people of Asian extraction in it. Have they abandoned this place because of the value for money on the food?, probably but hey Dumpling King you could probably keep us guilo coming if you gave a crap about service. Sadly no. Average dumplings with terrible service.... More

Go for the dumplings and wontons and leave everything else. We went as a group and ordered a whole heap of things and were underwhelmed. The wontons in the soup were the best eve though the menu said 15 and there were only about 8 ... we also ordered one dish (it's on the back of the menu, top right)... More

Love the food there and the portions are huge. I ordered a beef brisket noodle soup and it was delicious. The store owner is friendly as well.

Revolting from go to wo. Melamine bowls still had oil in bottom from previous customer. Waitress practically throws plates at you. Gluggy rice. Tasteless dumplings. No eftpos. Never again.

Appalling customer service, and staff did not accommodate my dietary requirements. Food was shocking and showed lack of effort: Meat was on the bone, chicken was grey, beef was drier than Ghani's flip flops. I also did not think Bisto Gravy was Chinese, but hey its the chefs special. Most importantly the only drink they serve is Green tea. Although... More

Who doesn't love juicy dumplings?! We tried this joint the other day and we weren't disappointed! This no-nonsense unpretentious little resto is a gem in Chinatown. We ordered super good fried pork chop rice and pan fried dumplings (their signature dish). Forget the steamed dumplings, just go for the pan fried, you won't regret it!

Nice setting, reasonable price, service is OK. We had noodles and test is quite good. We do recommend tourists if you need quick and nice food.
