We ordered a few traditional northern China dishes, none of them were disappointed. The original flavor dumpling were very delicious indeed! Great food, but I have to say the service were bad, not the best environment either! 包房里工作的女孩子们,面无表情,服务态度极其恶劣!

We came by here after the visit to the Shenyang Imperial Palace (about 15 minutes walk) because this was ranked #1 on Tripadvisor. However, I didn’t feel it was so fantastic that deserved a #1 rating.

It’s probably a very touristy place for Westerners who never tried dumplings before. I say this because the service staff on the 1st floor completely ignored our presence and only greeted the Westerner group behind us. We had to actually listen to their conversation to realise that the restaurant is on level 2. That aside, service staffs on Level 2 were pretty friendly.

Price wise, we spent around RMB150 for two adults. We could order two portions of dumplings, one fried pig trotter, and half jug of soya bean milk.

Not too sure what the gimmick is with this place to get #1 rating but I probably wouldn’t return, and wouldn’t even be coming here if not for the close proximity to the Imperial Palace.

Its damn good! We tried the steam ones, panfried ones and spicy pork. The pork is so tender and not fatty. The dumplings were awesome!

This is the original where the chain started. We purposely avoided the Beijing franchise so we could dine at this location. We found the Chinese dill dumplings, fish filled and the chive dumplings to be exceptionally delicious. However, the pork, lamb, beef and donkey filled dumplings were good but not particularly special. We ordered a few non dumpling dishes for diversity like the shredded cucumber and stuffed lotus root which was good but nothing we couldn't have eaten elsewhere.

The service was fast and efficient. We were in and out within an hour.
