Where is as is!

We come here for kuchay dumplings and nothing else. How do I put this, I see them preparing food, making noodles, dumplings on the tables near the door. No face mask, no gloves, only hairnets. We ordered the dumplings and they cook it as you order it, straight from the freezer to the boiling pot... read more

First, we waited for about 42mins just to get In. We decided to take out and it took even more 30mins. The people behind us who dined in got their ordered first before us. The problem was the owner mixed up the paper. Second, they need to innovate the order is by paper it could really messed up example in... More

My Filipino friend took me to this place and I had the best dumplings in my life there! I couldn't believe how tender they were. The filling was soooo good and perfectly balanced. If I ever go back to Manila this will be the place to stop by.

I love this place, but I would warn finicky diners to stay away because the restaurant is small, drab and dingy. There are only four or five tables and you'd see employees making the dumplings right by the window. But if you still go, I would recommend the pork and kuchay pancakes -- they're crisp, seasoned well, and absolutely stuffed.... More

My geek and i had hard time looking for this place. We never thought that it looked like a small kinda dirty eatery(sorry for the words). It was 6pm when we arrived and staffs were all busy creating dumplings in the table parallel to where we seat. We have ordered pork dumplings and xiao long bao.. i think the price... More

I've been reading good reviews about this place so my colleague and I decided to try it one night after work. Despite our familiarity with Binondo, we got a bit lost looking for this place. It's very small with only 5-6 tables. Earlier, one will surely experience how the dumplings are prepared as the ladies prepare them from one of... More

I am lucky that I am near Binondo so whenever I crave for dumpling, this is my go to place. I really love their kuchay dumplings, for 120 pesos, you will have a hearty serving and usually you can eat it with a friend. Aside from its really affordable, their dumpling is really tasty, and fresh. You can see them... More

Visited as part of a the Binondo Food tour walk. This is not a place I would have gone to on my own, you have to walk through the kitchen to get to the second floor (main floor was tiny and packed) past piles of meat on the stairs. Once you get upstairs the place looks even more like a... More

Came here for some breakfast n was delighted at the flavor. To say fresh is an understatement. Literally watched her make them in front of me. Had the pork dumplings which were amazing. 120P for a hearty serving. Definitely worth the visit
