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

It is a hole-in-a-wall place but with a big window in which you can observe the girls making fresh dumplings. This is the first sign of quality. Then you realize that they are freshly making everything: the dough, fillings, dumplings. Tried ground pork with chives and they were brilliant - steamed, but much lighter than dim-sums, not so porky, melting... More

The problem was the owner mixed up the paper. Second, they need to innovate the order is by paper it could really messed up example in... More

My Filipino friend took me to this place and I had the best dumplings in my life there! I couldn't believe how tender they were. The filling was soooo good and perfectly balanced. If I ever go back to Manila this will be the place to stop by.

I love this place, but I would warn finicky diners to stay away because the restaurant is small, drab and dingy. There are only four or five tables and you'd see employees making the dumplings right by the window. But if you still go, I would recommend the pork and kuchay pancakes -- they're crisp, seasoned well, and absolutely stuffed.... More

My geek and i had hard time looking for this place. We never thought that it looked like a small kinda dirty eatery(sorry for the words). It was 6pm when we arrived and staffs were all busy creating dumplings in the table parallel to where we seat. We have ordered pork dumplings and xiao long bao.. i think the price... More

I've been reading good reviews about this place so my colleague and I decided to try it one night after work. Despite our familiarity with Binondo, we got a bit lost looking for this place. It's very small with only 5-6 tables. Earlier, one will surely experience how the dumplings are prepared as the ladies prepare them from one of... More
