This place is popular and is dumplings are like fast food. The servings are enough for 2 and good place to come to eat. popular with young uni students and wide variety of food. Steamed dumplings are my favourite. made mistake if trying one that was fried- too dry. free tea as well.

The place was crowded which is always a good sign. The food and drinks are very reasonably priced, staff is very efficient and friendly. Food arrives fast and tastes great. Selection is wide. Tea sits on the tables and is free. You can dine in or take away. The restaurant is a bit noisy due to all the people.

Good price with good proportions of Chinese food. Staffs are friendly and service is quick and good. Free hot tea. The table is wiggling and the environment is just ok. Good for a normal meal

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.
