Visited for lunch and tried 3 dumpling flavours along with sides would not recommend. Dumplings have no flavour and rubbery, very expensive. Watered down soy sauce. Deep fried springs rolls were burnt and over cooked. Prawn dumplings were undercooked.

Loved this place! Dumplings taste really fresh and well flavoured. We tried three different kinds, and all were delicious, as were the fried noodles. Service is quick and friendly, and the restaurant is clean and a nice environment. Will definitely come back here.

Been here a couple times now and overall unimpressed. Dumplings are good but want to be at the price. Fried rice/noodles average: oily, lacking flavour. Service average. Even with GrabOne vouchers it didn’t feel like good value.

Went with family of 4who love dumplings, unfortunately could only afford 3 platters that did not satisfy hungry tummies. Really tasty but not many options for halal or vegetarians.
