Our Sunday ritual !! Service is super fast, food is always amazingly fresh, tasty and hits the spot. General Tao chicken and the fried dumplings with spinach and mushroom are a must try. Enjoy😊

We were asked to leave our umbrella in a filthy bucket filled with water which they never bother to empty. We politely asked for tea which never came. The sauce and meat that came with the noodles was extremely salty, The onion cake was extremely greasy. The steamed dumplings seemed boiled (bland). The washroom was filthy, felt sick to my... More

We go here regularly. Great food at a great price. It's always crowded and you will have a wait if you go at popular times but tables move pretty fast. We love the eggplant with garlic sauce and the wonton soup in addition to the dumplings

This was my third or fourth time here. Tried the steamed version of the pork and chive dumplings; I think I prefer them fried because the dough on the steamed version was too thick for my taste. Nothing fancy here, just good food at a very cheap price and decent service. Cash only.

Just had dinner a Dumpling House in China town Toronto. Small place, crowded, slow service. Suggest going early because lines form quickly out the door. We had the Chicken with Mushrooms which was pretty bland. Wouldn't order again. The eggplant dish was outstanding. Very delicious and I highly recommend it. No rice is served with the meals as in the... More

Coming from Melbourne Australia, this place would be considered as quite average. The fried dumplings aren't as substantial and very loosely folded. Taste was OK only. Not much depth and skin was bit oily. The steamed/boiled dumplings was OK but lacked flavour. You need to the vinegar to dip. They don't use a chilli oil but have a chilli sauce... More

Great little place! Clean, and fast service. Dumplings were delicious. Tried here from reviews on TripAdvisor and glad we did. Very busy but they move people fat. We walked right in and sat down. We chose the 3 fried dumplings...pork, beef and shrimp/veggie. All very good. Large plate of pork fried rice, and general twos. Definitely worth a try.

The restaurant is famous for the food and it's price. There's a big waiting line but worth waiting! Very good food and well served!
