A friend recommended we try the fried flat noodle dish with chicken and was most pleased I did as it was super yummy. I will be back again soon.

Today my friend and I just wanted a bite to eat after a busy day. I had no idea what to get so I chose the apple mango cinnamon rolls with house gelato. I was already pumped about getting to pick which gelato I wanted...with them (you have to try their strawberry cheesecake flavour) but when they came out they were the most beautiful dessert I have ever laid eyes on! And I consider myself to be a dessert connoisseur. They were almost too pretty to eat but I'm glad I ate them because my tastebuds were in paradise! Whoever your chef is, tell them they are doing an amazing job. I will be thinking about this dessert all day tomorrow <3More

Okay dumpling spot in a cool food hall. Eightgrains has a platter that I thought was fun. Overall it was a bit underwhelming though.

I have been here many times. Highly recommend the Taiwanese braised pork belly. It’s my favourite and if you like it a bit spicy add some of their chilli oil. And the vegetarian dumplings are surprisingly delicious too. The staff are quite friendly.

Early dinner for us arrived just before 530. Easy to find a table. Ordered tasting plate of dumpings, wontons, and chicken rice noodles. We shared with our 4 year old daughter who loved it. Will definitely be back. When we left an hour later it...was muxh busier with people waiting for tables.More

We had some tasty soup dumplings and noodles here for dinner. The noodles were in a very large portion, so we didn't leave hungry, In general, we loved the Little High Street concept and atmosphere and ate dinner at Little High Street twice during a...four day trip.More

They had a vegan option for every section of the menu which was amazing, and the tempura vege bao was so tasty but a wee bit steep ($9 for one). The vegan dumplings ($15 for a dozen) had a bland filling so I wouldn’t recommend...them however overall the vegan offering was impressiveMore

If you're able to brave the busy atmosphere of Little High Eatery, I would definitely recommend checking out Eightgrains and their amazing food! Going with a party of six, everyone was able to choose their own meals at the various eateries within Little High and...I was eager to try the vegan options Eightgrains has. I had the Tempura Vegetable Bao, which had a crispy, crunchy filling inside the soft bao bun. I followed this up with the incredible Apple, Mango and Cinnamon rolls (df) which were so good I bought another round after consuming the first within minutes! Staff were friendly and helpful, all orders came out correct and the wait for the food was great considering the busy time we went. Overall experience was excellent and I highly recommend Eightgrains.More
