Either steamed or fried, this place is the genuine article! Great value, and always take home a few frozen bags for later.

I love this restaurant. The dumplings are wonderful, the staff are nice. I am so happy to make our way to the Dumpling House whenever we are in Toronto or we just drive to Toronto for the dumplings.

Speaking from an Asian perspective, I can confidently say that this place has the worst dumplings ever. They didn’t even use the right dumpling wrap (the wrap that becomes clear after steamed) but they used the wrap similar to a bao so it was too...thick! The filling had no taste and too wet so it kept falling apart. The House Special Noodle was fine, a little too oily but the shrimps were bland so you should go with the Beef Noodle. But the dumplings were too disappointing. I recommend going to Swatow Restaurant, they have the best shrimp wonton ever.More

The pan fried dumpling are excellent. The steamed one are very good too. The General Tao chicken was not the best we had but still tasty. Made fresh behind the street window. Good hole in the wall type of place. Service was quick but there...was no one else in the restaurant. Air conditionning would be nice though!More

We ended up here after our terrible experience at Rol San. THANK GOD. This restaurant is amazing. Our only problem was there was too many mouth watering dishes being churned out from the kitchen, we didn't know what to choose. The General Tao chicken plate...looked incredible but we ended up with some great dumpling dishes. If you love dumplings and have been working up an appetite then get down here!More

Friendly service in a somewhat cramped dining room. Four of us shared Singapore Noodles (very good!) and assorted steamed and fried dumplings, as well as a Crystal Noodle salad. All were pretty tasty. It was entertaining to watch the chef at work on a very...low gas stove. It was a bit expensive for what we got, I thought: $60 with tip for a fairly light lunch (no leftovers).More

Large variety of Dumplings, the steamed shrimp and scallions was great. Be warned they don't take cards, only cash!

Went there expecting far better. It wasn’t bad, just average. They are very busy though, but they accommodated our party of seven, not including two infants. Portions are sized good, and prices are reasonable. In the beginning, seemed as if the service was poor, but...we felt it was a language barrier and they were much more friendly afterwards.More

Not what I expected for Chinese dumplings. Dough is far too thick, fillings are average and owner is friendly but very obnoxious. They are like boiled pierogies. We went on a Saturday night, so lineup was extensive. We met 3 Chinese nationals who also were...told this place was good. By the end of the meal, they didn’t care for it either.More

You can actually watch the dumplings being made through the front window. They only accept cash. Air conditioning was lacking. I went on a Saturday at 11:30 am and it was busy but I didn’t have a problem getting a table. I ordered the #15...which is 15 steamed dumplings of 3 different types of your choosing. I chose pork & chive, lamb, and shrimp & vegetables. A glass of water was provided. The dumplings were good and filling. Total cost was $14.70 before tip.More

These tasty pork & chive dumplings can be purchased steamed or pan fried. Beware, they're made to order, so allow 10 minutes before you can dig into this deliciousness! Priced around $11 for 15 of them.

Seeing the people streaming in and out of this place made me want to get some dumplings. Waited a minute so that I could go in and get my order placed. Tight entrance and cash only business, once you get past that. The dumplings are...to die for. Fresh, tasty and dough was just the right thickness.More

We are used to very good, authentic Chinese food. This was okay, but since dumplings were the specialty, we expected them to be better. They were average like you would get at any Chinese restaurant. They only take CASH. They will take US cash, but...they ding you on the exchange rate, like 1 to 1. The staff was not terribly friendly, either. Meh. I preferred the dumplings we had across the street at Rol San's dim sum.More
