Good but not great

Steamed dumplings and fried balls were good but the soup was salty and quite disapointing. Had to wait in a line, but got in quickly.

The lines and crowd have been too long in the past. Today I got a seat upstairs. Table service is the way to go. I was able to order in English and the service was prompt. I have tried the steamed dumplings around town, the places I tried did not compare to this original. I had a great meal here... More

Went straight up to the VIP area to avoid the long queues at the ground floor. Ordered tea and their famous soup bun. Mediocre is the soup. The skin of the bun is tough and thick. The other baos ordered are also of similar quality. Thick and tough. Shouldn't a good bao be made with thin or soft skins so... More

Went to this place based on the good reviews here and was totally disappointed in the place! Had tried similar type of food across asia and across china and this is one of the worst quality i have ever eaten. Food doesn't taste fresh and service bad at this place. If you find the food here good, you can easily... More

All dishes are amazing. Really juice dumplings. Must try. On the 3rd floor you can get a table or vip area.

Head up to third floor and skip lines to restaurant section 1 and 2. Go to VIP section with no line, AC, diverse menu and quiet section. Really nice after the chaos of the market below. Minimum order in VIP room is about $25 or 150 RBM. Easily met with two orders of dumplings, fried pork, crab spring rolls and... More

We felt that part of the experience was to join the queue at the stall rather than going upstairs to the restaurant. It was a busy Saturday evening, so we were waiting in line for about 45 minutes watching the world go by. The dumplings were worth the wait. Absolutely delicious and excellent value: generous portions of 16 dumplings each... More

I think this floor mainly serves pork dumplings and little else. We had a few dumpling servings and some spring rolls. The food is simply to die for and it was brought to us almost instantly. The service is however quite angry in style. I asked my Chinese friend what was happening when I heard animated chatter on a table... More

I never tried ground floor because when you travel, time is more precious. We skipped the ground floor. and got to 2nd floor (sort of self serve). We moved on to 3rd floor. I saw a line up at 3rd floor and I asked how long the wait. Then I was instructed to go along to a hidden part of... More

The third floor is much more expensive than the second floor however, there is a menu with different selection of dumplings and other dishes. The second floor is a little rough and ready with only one type of dumpling on offer so is the ground floor takeaway. Be prepared to queue.
