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.

I've been here a few times now and the food is great! I've only tried the dumplings, but they are one of the best I've tried outside of China.

Service was prompt and receptive. New establishment that was clean and tidy. Steamed bun was soggy on its bum, crumbed pork lacked flavour, lettuce and cucumber was fresh, sauce lacked depth of flavour. Overall a disappointment.

Both dishes used little and cheap meat and were mainly rice and noodles. If they put a bit more effort into adding fresh herbs nice vege and some decent meat could have been ok. I won't go back.
