Second time here for us. We love noodles, especially the xia long bao. But the pork dim sims are good as well. Highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a good lunch

Great small eatery in the mall. Dumplings and buns handmade. Taste gorgeous and steamed to perfection. Service friendly and polite. Support this little gem in the heart of Darwin.
