Less Customer Service

I visited during Sunday lunch time. The place was packed. They were not shooing the customers but they were honest enough in setting clear expectation on the orders and seating capacity. I wanted to order xiao long bao but got disheartened by advising a 20-40 mins wait. The food was good but... read more

The dumplings were super fresh. They prepared the dumplings right before they were steamed and served to us. No frills restaurant where the kitchen is also the dining area. Your food is being prepared literally inches from the dining tables. I guess that's part of the charm of the restaurant. You see ladies rolling out the dough and expertly filling... More

I've never ate at Dong Bei, the few times I had mine to go. I don't get the hype, compared to other dumpling and noodle soup place, I consider this place average. Maybe the people hyping have not experienced the other establishments or they're just part of the famous foodie walking tour. Not bad, but not spectacular. And the last... More

My trainee and I went to Dongbei last week because I want to show him around Binondo. Of course, we ordered the usual dumplings which I order everytime I visit this place (and was even planning to order the famous Xiao Bao Long) and they told me there's no shrimp available and asked if it was OK. I said no... More

We love to eat at Dong Bei Dumpling in China Town, Binondo. Steamed Pork Kutchay dumpling is very delicious but their fried tofu is standout and so yummy. However, am quite disappointed on their very slow preparation of the fried tofu which takes almost half an hour. May I also suggest that the store owner provide their customer a disposable... More

My husband and I walked 4 blocks just to try this tiny , unpretentious hole in the wall dumplings place along Yuchengco Street (formerly Nueva): Dong Bei. I really do not have any complaints about its boiled pork with Kutchay dumplings, fried tofu with minced meat, soya sauce noodles, stir fried chicken with sesame seeds. They were very good and...

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
