Wasn't my favorite dumpling place (Bau Yuan did it for me), but there were a lot of filling options, friendly for both vegans and meat eaters!

I simply cannot understand the many positive reviews of this place. We had 3 different dumplings and they all tasted the same. There are far better dumpling places all over town.

We got a dumpling sampler and the oil splash noodles (appropriately named, you've been warned!), and both were delicious! We're big dumpling lovers, and while everything was scrumptious, the noodles really stole the show. They were handmade in view, and they were so fresh and delicious and perfect. Mmm. Mouth is watering thinking about them. The restaurant is in a... More

Had some really delicious dumplings there. If you get the right table, you can also watch them prepare your meal.

This little restaurant is situated in one hutong not far from the Gulou. You can easily find it there. I was looking for some place to enjoy Chinese dumplings and thanks to TripAdvisor, I found this one. But it is a really very-very good one. Though the place is small, but they have a wide variety of dumplings and different... More

Back in a Hutong alley, very small place. Only about 5 tables in there but there was only one other couple in the place. They have a large menu and you can order many different types of dumplings, I highly recommend getting a sampler with three different flavors (shrimp and egg were delicious, so were pork and spring onion). They... More

The food here is good and the menu is extensive enough to please everyone. However, this place is really overpriced for what you get. I would recommend Bao Yuan Jiao Zi Guan as a better place that isn't quite as pricey.

We arrived to this place on a freezing December evening after navigating the hutongs (easy if you are using a gps). The dumplings were some of the best ever, freshly made in front of you and with endless fillings. You can also mix and match which is great if you want to try as many as possible. This place is...
