Delicious dumplings and side dishes - particularly the deep fried green beans! Always super busy but a great place to head to with friends for a cheap and yummy meal.

It must have been about four years ago that we first tried Barrilla. At the time it was just another unknown restaurant in Balmoral, known only to locals and the Chefs who used to call in late after their shifts. Then it became famous. For a couple of reasons, and it became really hard to get a table. We ventured... More

There are two Barilla Dumpling restaurants on the street, but one is much flasher than the other. Food was good, service prompt, good value for money.

The house speciality salted fried beans were good but I felt overpriced at $16. The steamed pork mushroom waterchestnut dumplings perhaps a little bland - definitely needed chilli and soy sauce. Doggy bag option was much appreciated. Busy clean but rather loud atmosphere. 3.5 stars

Grab a few family and friends to dine at Barilla serving sizes are large and you want to taste a few dishes. Once again we completely over ordered, three sets of dumplings, veg and delish sweet and sour pork. This is not my usual go to but Barilla serve this more on the sour than sweet side. You have to...

Entered the restaurant (for early lunch, it was empty at the time) and was offered the table in the window. After being handed menus, a Chinese family came in and we were told we had to move to another table - with no explanation given. The Chinese family then took our table. By this time we had already been there... More

Managed to get the last table upstairs on a very busy Friday night at 9pm. Basic decor and service but great food, huge bowl of chicken and corn soup at $12 could feed 3 people, dumplings would have to be best value for money, and chicken noodle stir fry was way bigger than expected. No wonder the place was full,... More

Had heard great things about the general area and the dumplings at Barilla. Not that impressed with the dumplings themselves. Not bad though. The kicker is that the service is bad almost to the point of comedy. No smiling or eye contact here. The mild impression that your existence is an inconvenience lingers.

You can find some pretty great food at the Chinatown area on Dominion food and Barilla has the best dumplings. Mushroom chicken, pork & cabbage and the prawn ones are my favourites.
