Our waitress was a space cadet - didn't take the order properly - we ordered two beers and two serves of sliders, but received only one of each. The traditional dumplings were ok but not as good as other yum cha in Melbourne, the steamed...More

I went with my partner here for our date night. The restuarant has a fairly unique look to it and the outside area at the back was nice. Once we were seated we were given 2 glasses of water and 2 bowls and the menus....More

Visited Drumplings for lunch on a Saturday afternoon in January 2019. We had a good experience and enjoyed the menu selection, dishes were reasonably priced and a huge variety to choose from. Staff were friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed the prawn and hargow dumplings....More

Funky venue with dumplings that are a twist on the traditional. Tried the cheeseburger, chicken laksa, apple crumble and lemon meringue pie dumplings. Delicious and want to try them all!

Food was superb - but we stuck to the traditional fare. Whilst some offerings looked interesting it just didn’t really appeal. Wait staff were somewhat inattentive- no urgency or engagement. Fix this & it would be a top score

Went with friends for lunch and had to send back 2 dishes as they were cold and uncooked. A basic requirement of cooking in a restaurant so totally unacceptable.
