Who would have thought a dumpling could taste like a cheeseburger! A most enjoyable (returned for a second) evening with all the tastes true to description including the sweet. Staff were very pleasant and helpful would return again when next in Melbourne.

Initial service was pleasant and order for drinks was quickly taken when seated. Took 10 minutes for the drinks to arrive and there were no more than 10 customers. Different waitress came back and took our food order before drinks came which doesn’t sound organised....More

Went there to try their cheeseburger, chicken laksa and beef rendang dumplings - flavours were there, but lacked punch, and tasted watered down. The customer service was pretty dire, with orders mixed up, or not going through - we waited for one dish for close...More

A buzzy vibe at lunch time drumplings had pretty much any type of dumpling you could think of. A mix of traditional and non traditional it was hard to pick a favourite. Truffle is a top contender or could it be cheeseburger. The bao buns...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

We are a unique modern dumpling diner that offers a global twist on a traditional classic. Think Cheeseburger, Mac & Cheese, Beef Rendang, Truffle Mushroom and Chili Con Carne, hand wrapped into a traditional dumpling. We are a destination of exciting new adventures and discoveries. In addition to the global menu, we also offer classic Chinese favourites such as the Xiao Long Bao, Prawn & Ginger dumplings and Gua Baos including Char Sui Pork and Smokey Szechuan Chicken - paying homage and respecting the art and history of dumplings. Using locally produced and sustainably sourced ingredients of the highest quality, Drumplings delivers something entirely new to the Melbourne food scene – an unforgettable taste sensation never before experienced.
