The steamed curry dumplings are amazing

Visited the one in Chinatown on 1019 St Laurent on Feb 28 2015. The service is typical of any Chinese establishment in Chinatown, very random and tired. But once the dumplings arrived, we forgot all the neglect. The dumplings are delicious, most of all the curry ones, they burst in your mouth... read more

We walked down to China Town which is not that appealing but spotted this gem. It is clean and modern. We ordered two types of dumplings, they come in large steamer baskets usually 15 per serve and they are a generous size. They are made in the kitchen which is behind a large window at the rear of the restaurant.... More

A great place for freshly made ( right in front of you) dumplings that you can have steamed or fried. We always get both. The lamb ones are excellent. Very inexpensive. We also go to the Chinatown location. Great bargain and excellent.

We were tired and needed fast food, but we hate fast food. Qing Hua was a good substitute. Go for the dumplings because there is no atmosphere and service is efficient but quite aloof. Dumplings are available only as full orders and the inability to sample a variety of smaller plates distracts from the experience. The dumplings were very good... More

A small, hole in the wall Chinese dumpling restaurant that serves multiple kinds of dumplings - chicken, beef, pork, lamb & vegetarian. You can get them steamed, boiled (?), or fried, Don't go there expecting anything more and you won;t get disappointed. When the waitress told me that you get 15 dumplings for about $7 an order - I couldn't... More

This little spot looks like nothing, the decor is horrible, the service is super basic, the waitresses barely spoke English or French, BUT their dumplings make up for all of that. I have been there a couple of times, and my all time favorite flavors are the chicken and cilantro, as well as the pork and shrimp ones. I hope... More

We ordered several types of dumplings. It was difficult to tell the difference between some of the types (shrimp could be discerned from pork but one pork combination tasted almost the same as another). We really liked that there was some soup/liquid inside the dumplings and they "popped" when you took a bite. The service was brusque. When we asked... More

The steamed dumplings were great: fresh and hot. Service is a little random. I had never been there, but my companions had eaten there several times. The dumpling portions are generous. We had two of the salads and they were a good choice. Friday nights are very busy and crowded, but our order was properly prepared and quickly served.

Hubby and I love the dumplings here-- especially lamb coriander. We are repeat visitors. The service can sometimes be slow and clumsy, so we like to take batches of frozen dumplings home as well. This way we can steam them at home and save on the cost of alcohol. Very fresh ingredients, consisted quality.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
