“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

After trying many of the delicious dumpling houses in Melbourne, this place became our "go to" for dumplings. Always get the pork dumplings in chili oil, pan fried pork dumplings, prawn and chive dumplings and then green veggies on the side. They have an upstairs section that works beautifully for larger groups which we used a ton. If you go with a group, it is a tremendous value!

“Love dumplings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I love going to dumping houses, so quick and easy for lunch and at a great price. Dumplings plus is a great place with highly attentive waitresses and quick service. Well priced and the only negative was the gentleman host standing over us constantly looking at how close to finishing the customers are.

“Overpriced rudeness”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

A very overpriced restaurant. The service is very poor with rude waiters. I asked to have the dumpings more and they responded to me saying they were which they were not. The dumplings were half raw and so over priced. Directly across the road you get much better food for literally have the price.

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Dumplings in soup were great, shaved ice with lychees also great, spiced meat balls a little too salty. This place is very busy, and they don't have a proper queuing system. You have to wait inside the door, and the little man gets ratty with you if you attempt to go to a table without him telling you which one.

Service was not too bad. Good value for money, and food was fresh and tasty.
