There is much hype bout this place. Tried their steamed pork with chivez dumplings, u can have the dumplings fried or steamed btw. Honestly it wasnt that good. The wanton soup was terrible, the noodles they used were left over bits from the dumpling dough I guess it was soo bland and the soup was worst. I dont know if... More

This place is hard to find but it is a treasure. The ambiance may not be as appealing but seeing how simple this place is (plastic tables and chairs) and reading the raves for its food even made me more craving for it. We were not disappointed when we tasted the food here - my friend and I completely agreed... More

It wasn't jam-packed when we got there. There was one table, and one seat left! But one of the crew provided us with his chair (he was eating his late lunch). We were attended quickly. Food was not available immediately but that's fine, at least I know I'm served with new cooked dumplings. I tried that chinese tea in can,... More

Dong Bei is actually hidden from the rest of the restaurants in Binondo. While you may find yourself walking through a series, from the cross (shrine where you light incense) you go straight to your right). You'll see a resto with glass a sliding door where you can actually see ladies preparing dumplings fresh! Don't forget to order Kuchay and... More

Great little place for a delicious feed of dumplings! We visited in the evening, and there weren't many customers. I am sure it would be quite busy in that little shop in peak times though!

If ever you are in Ongpin, you have to try the dumplings here in Dong Bei. Don't be deterred by the unassuming facade.The service is fast and cheerful and the dumplings are something else. Dumplings are all freshly made to order. You can even watch the girls while dumplings are being made. Must try the Garlic Chives (kutsay) dumpling and... More

We went on a food trip in Binondo on Black Saturday and Dong Bei was one of our destinations. While we have a google map , we didnt want to search for the resto on a very hot day. From Lucky Chinatown Mall, we took a tricycle to Dong Bei and told the driver to take us to Dong Bei.The... More

We celebrated the 2013 Chinese New Year here at Dong Bei Dumplings and it was such an amazing experience. Their steamed Kutchay Dumplings is just the ultimate deal breaker. For 100 pesos you get 14 beautiful dumplings that tastes so good. Even better if you dip it in their special soy sauce. You can watch how these tiny dumplings are... More

Would definitely go back and try other stuff. I had 14 steamed dumplings (pork and chives) for 100 pesos (approx. 2$US), excellent. When I came in the restaurant (rather small, like 16 places or so), three women were sitting up front near the bay window, just making the dumplings straight in front of you. The owners seemed to be in... More
