Zero Ambience, Excellent Dumplings

One of those hole-in-the-wall places that is part of the Binondo Food tour. We wouldn't have found nor gone into it otherwise. The place is foremost a kitchen that occupies the whole of the ground floor, while the dining area is on the second floor accessed via a narrow staircase made even... read more

The place is quite small..literally just 6 or 7 tables...small tables...They make the dumplings in the dining area. We ordered some noodles, dumplings, and xiaolong bao..the noodles were so-so...dumplings were good...xiaolongbao is something I will not crave for again (not like the xialongbao from Lugang which I really liked a lot).

I visit this place often. Affordable and very good dumplings worth the travel time from Quezon City to Binondo. Staff are friendly. I recommend to come in early as the place gets crowded by lunchtime. I'm always a fan. Will go back again and again :)

My hostel recommended that I go here for lunch, and I'm so glad I did. It is a very small shop (about 4 tables - I had to share my table with a Filipino couple), but they make the dumplings on a table at the front of the shop -- doesn't get any fresher than that! A plate of 10... More

If you're craving to experience chinese food the way it is in Manila's chinatown district... this is surely one of them. The kuchay was the best I've tasted. The xiao long bao was ok. My son got a bit dismayed by the pork with egg which was actually an omelet with ground pork. For the queasy fine dining types...this place... More

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 sometimes it really is the service that makes... 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
