Don't be put off by the tiny store front, the small handful of seats, or by the off-the-beaten-path location. This place is the real deal. First-rate dumplings is all they make. And if that's what floats your boat, make a bee line to Top Cafe. I have never had better.

It's not exactly hidden, but is in a quiet street just behind K Rd. Parking is pretty much always a problem, but worth the effort (or you could catch a bus and just walk there).

We're really lucky in Auckland for a good selection of dumpling. You can go to Shaolin Kung Fu Noodle for delicious steamed dumplings, or set you mouth on fire with the awesome Sichuan style dumplings at Eden Noodles, or come to the intimate Top Cafe Dumpling House for some hand crafted pockets of pure culinary pleasure. When you think you've tasted some fine dumplings come here and try out the selection on offer. You might hear that they are pretty bloody good, but try for yourself.

After a few visits I'm coming to the conclusion that Chive Egg Shrimp dumplings are becoming my favourite. But at the same time, have not tried any I have not wanted to try again.

Go there, but keep this place a secret. :)

Top Cafe is the mecca of dumplings! I highly recommend you visit this place and get your hands on some tasty morsels. Frank and the team have created a taste explosion in every meal my friends love coming up to Auckland just to visit Top Cafe - they even offer up vegan and vegetarian for everyone to enjoy!

Next time you are in Auckland make sure you visit Top Cafe you won't be disappointed

My asian friend took me to this place the other day for dumplings. It's hidden behind K-road on cross street. I would never have found this place by myself. They have their own dumpling making machine which is going away the background. There are only a few tables there, and a small bar with a few stools. These fried dumplings are some of the best I have ever eaten. They have lots of options to choose from, but we went with pork and coriander, which was absolutely delicious. They offer frozen dumplings in bulk which you can keep and cook at home. Definitely try this place out if you are a fan of asian dumplings! You won't be disappointed.
