Went here as a family group for Sunday lunch. Although we had a booking it didnt seem to make any difference and we still got n Ok. Some of us ordered a bowl of Hot and Sour soup and it was divine, everything it should have been sweet, salty and a little bit sour with lots of pepper to heat it up. For 6 of us we ordered 4 plates of dumplings. 2 steamed and 2 fried. We ordered their special squid ink calamari dumplings as one of the steamed options and although they were more expensive than the others they were the least interesting. I think it would have been a good idea to have these first as the flavour was more subtle than the others. My favourite was the pork and prawn dumpling. Had a glass of 8 treasure tea and enjoyed it. See you next visit to Melbourne.

You need to go searching in MidCity just off Bourke Street to find the best dumplings. They have standard dumplings like pork and vego options. But try the Melbourne dumplings or give the mushroom a try. Different choice but still at cheap dumpling prices.

Yummy dumplings, great beer selection, tucked down a laneway. Worth a stop as a warm up before a big meal!

If you are looking for that hole int he wall outstanding restaurant- Here it is. Is the service great- Its ok...friendly, simple. is the food exceptional YES YES YES.

The Dill and Pork dumplings blew us away...and since then we have been back on several occasions and almost worked through the menu! I cant recommend "the best" Dumplings- because they are all delish...However, dont think its all dumpling and the other food suffers, of no...pick your favorites and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
