Very nice place for dumplings, The service was very good and friendly, and price was reasonable. Some of the people I went with said it was one of the best dumplings they ever had. I had never had them before.

Appetizer: fried cheese, good taste, austere presentation. I would have expected something better for £5. Dumplings: asked to fry them, they were crunchy only on one side, and overall were very oily. Ate them because we were very hungry. Pork belly: not too bad, but...More

Excellent dumplings and kimchi Fresh and loads of choice. Kimchi is home made. We also had hot and sour soup which was fresh and intense. Probably the best hot hot and sour soup I’ve ever had.

The Dumpling Tree is an exciting new restaurant in Cambridge serving homemade dumplings and other Chinese delicacies from the Yunnan area of China. Beautiful Yunnan, one of China's southwestern provinces, is filled with ethnic and geographic diversity. With an average altitude of 6550 feet, Yunnan enjoys the reputation of being the Kingdom of Flower and Fauna. 26 Of China's 56 ethnic nationalities live there and it is the inspiration behind our restaurant - The Dumpling Tree. Our dishes are selected to reflect its way of living in harmony with nature. It is the fresh, honest, earthy and hearty food local Chinese people really thrive on. Not surprisingly these foods are the simplest, humble, most satisfying and nutritional balanced day-to-day foods. These are the foods which actually shape the Chinese history and sustain its 56 nationalities. Through their food one may gain an insight of their natural habitat, their faith and their ingenuity. It is a healthy and refreshing change from the dishes people usually associate Chinese food with. Try it, enjoy it and love it.
