Delicious Dumplings. Prices are reasonable. Staff is nice and speak English. Atmosphere is really local, no atmosphere. Just eat and go asap.

Quick service. Portion was quite big, price reasonable. I tried both boiled & fried dumplings - beef & shitake, beef & coriander, both are nice. No english spoken, but there's an english menu.
