We went here primarily for their kutchay dumplings. It's not very hard to find, just two streets from Ongpin, down Yuchengco St. It is an unassuming stall but the food is really authentic. Upon entering, we were greeted by their staff making the dumplings by hand. We did not mind the wait because we kept ourselves busy by watching them... More

I ordered 24pcs all for myself since i was craving for their kutchay. Cheap and amazingly good. They prepare the food right in front of you. For foreigners, keep watches and jewellery in bag when walking around Binondo area. Not sure if still unsafe until now but people around the area kept warning me to do so

Their dumplings are to die for! The place is just small and seating capacity will not exceed 20 I think. Be sure to go here before lunch time or else this place will be packed in no time. We ordered pork dumplings and their noodles and it was really really good! Worth it to go back here

It was a tight squeeze getting into this place, but the dumplings served were light, fresh and delicious! The Chinese tea served was heavy with floating tea leaves and couldn't be drunk! Not a fancy place at all! Dumplings!

Went here to try their xiao long bao which is obviously a lot cheaper than those found in Chinese restaurants. We did not plan on having the kuchay with pork dumplings because we're already so full from our Binondo food trip, but good thing we still tried that one because it's even more delicious than the xiao long bao. The... More

I would have rated 5 stars if they improve their place. The dumplings are not cheap so might as well improve their place. Order the fried stuffed pancake (for me that was really good).

Service is average. Ambiance is so-so. The staff members aren't the friendliest people on earth but I'd still go back for their pork dumplings!

Nothing special in fact for a chinese food lover it was not good for me. But it's cheap. The place is too small the staff will keep on bumping into you while eating.

The food was good especially the kuchay dumplings and budget-friendly, . The fried rice was ok as well as the shiao long bao. I found the fried bean curd a little bland. It's a hole-in-the-wall resto and from the table, you could see them prepare and cook the food. Be ready to cry, though, because they never stopped chopping onions.... More

Every time I come home to the Philippines, I always try to find time to go to Binondo to visit Dong Bei. It was recommended to me by my girlfriend, knowing that I've a tooth for Chinese dimsum. And this was indeed a good find in Manila's China town! It was expected that it'd be packed with people especially during... More
