We have stopped here on a Thursday night regularly over the last 2 years. It's not at its peak anyone where you had to line up for a table. The wait can still be a little wait but not as before. For something quick we love it Tremendous variety of dumplings. It's a good place to go.

Place was very pricey and honestly did not see anything I liked or was really excited about except for the steamed dumplings which tasted bland to me. We had the salted egg calamari and it was too strong for me..my friend who was eating it loves it but afterwards stated that he needed to brush his teeth really bad after!... More

No matter how good the food, customer service is important I dont mind waiting, but somehow my turn was always going to others who arrived well after we did. I questioned them but the explanation was vague , even rude. Did I do something wrong??

We ordered the xiao long bao (soupy dumpling heaven) and also the fried pork buns, which is now a staple for me 😀 The service is great,... More

Came here and waited in the queue that was forming on Thursday night and was seated immediately. The atmosphere was bustling and there were already a lot of people seated and eating. The waitresses look like they're interested in your order but don't want to be bothered another time after you've placed it. Me and my partner ordered the pork... More

Excellent food - been here a couple of times and they always deliver. Dumplings are excellent - and then there is so much more. Peking Pork with steamed dumpling were great, and the crispy chicken was one of the best crispy chicken dishes I have had for a long time. Good noodles and salt and pepper calamari. Best option around.

It is a bit of a wait sometimes but well worth it. The service is quick and the food is great. My daughter took me here for the second time, and I love it!, it is one of her favourite places. Also the dishes are filling and reasonably priced.

Try them all. You will not be disappointed. Just a shame that you can't book a table. The longest we had to wait was 40 min. But it's worth it. Don't give up people. Once you get a table they bring out the menus and once ordered it rarely takes more than 10 min to get your food.
