Loved this little dumpling house. We tried the salads, noodle dishes and dumplings and loved them all. Very tasty and reasonable prices. A must try. Staff is very friendly. Can't wait to go back.

This place is tucked away in a strip mall anchored by a bowling alley, along a busy commercial road, so the exterior is not the most inviting. However, don't be daunted, the interior is basic, but modern and clean, with the usual Chinese restaurant decor cues from whatever Chinese restaurant decoration supply company outfits restaurants all over America.

The menu is pretty focused on their namesake dumplings, but with some additional soups, salads and noodle dishes. Do not go here expecting General Tso's chicken, etc. Pricing is very gentle, with soups at $1.99 and orders of 12 small steamed dumplings mostly $5.99-9.99 range. Pan frying adds $1.00 to each order.

We started with the hot & sour soup, which was a white-ish broth with egg whites and tofu finished with white vinegar and pepper. Tangy and delicious, though visually it is the albino version of what you'd expect in a Chinese restaurant. We shared plates of steamed vegetable dumplings and fried pork and chive dumplings. The wrappers for both were delicate and light. The pan fried plate was a pale golden on one side and still tender. The filling for the vegetable dumplings was notable for its clear defined vegetable flavors, no generic soft shredded cabbage in these. The quick cooking preserved the color, texture and flavors in the filling. The pork and chive were also very light and subtle in their flavor. I admit, I like a bit more fried crunch on the exterior, but the deft hand used here shows a fairly sophisticated approach to the food.

While limited in both menu and "wow factor", this is a solid option in the area. If you're in the mood for light dumplings (if that's not an oxymoron), this would be a place worth trying.

Fifty kinds of dumplings, all made in AUTHENTIC North China style. Outstanding noodle dishes, also authenically northern. (The chef is from Harbin in Manchuria). The salads are unique. There's one made of matchstick-sized potatos fried crunchy and studded with cilantro. The place is amazingly cheap (an order of 12 dumplings is just $6-$12, depending on filling) and salads and soups start at $1.99.

As far as I can tell, the only people who can't love this place are Americans who don't understand the regional differences in food from the gigantic nation of China.

I don't know how anyone can say they like these dumplings. After reading reviews on this place we decided to try it. The place was small, hot, and dumpy on the inside, which could have been overlooked had they had good food. The dumplings were disgusting after one bite I spit it out in my napkin. Then I ordered the hot & sour soup it was just as nasty as the dumplings, not to mention it looked like frothy white goo. I left starving and needless to say we have not been back!! Every time we go by Palace Dumplings we chuckle about what a joke the place is. If you are foodies like us may I suggest you stay away from this place and make your own dumplings at home or go into the city!!
