You don't come here for the service and the ambience is noisy Chinese restaurant, but the dumplings are great. Loved the pork and cabbage. Not a place to go on your own - you need three or four people and pick different dumplings and share. If you can.t eat them all get a doggie bag - the dumplings reheat fine.

Best dumplings in Auckland at a great price. It's always very busy so they are doing something right. Great selection of dumplings all good.

After constantly eating from its neighbouring restaurants in Dominion Rd, decided to try something new and went in here. Restaurant was medium full. Staff were pretty rude. When my mate enquired about a particular item, the waiter started to make fun of him telling him how come he don't know about it. Well apparently you can't expect everyone to know... More

The meal was very good value for money. I also found the staff pleasant and really patient, as me and my friend probably stayed a little too long catching up with each other and hogging our table (hopefully others weren't waiting for it).

Ordered dumplings and fried French beans (must eat). Got asked to move tables TWICE to make room for other customers. Waited 40 minutes for fried dumplings which when they came they were very watery and seamed steamed and fried for only 4 sec. Terrible. Beans were good. If you are going to go I'd suggest ordering takeaway. Takeaway takes way... More

$14 for 20 dumplings....as I watched them being carried in frozen I understood why. I literally scraped the MSG off my tongue after. Your dumplings are terrible and I can only hope that Auckland realizes how disgusting your food is soon. If you want a bowl of grease and mystery meat then you're in the right place. Seriously, go and... More

This place is always busy and we wait for 20 minutes for a table. But we do not mind waiting as we love their Seafood Dumpling, Sweet & Sour Pork and Pancake Fried Noodle. Very quick and efficient service.

Waited 2 hours for a single order of dumplings. It wasn't even busy. Asked the waitress several times to check our order. She just kept saying "It's coming." Then they realised they stuffed up our order. The food is not good enough for anyone to put up with the service. Won't be back. Don't deserve to be in business.

Popped in for lunch for 8 of us. We couldn't get one table for all of us so we settled for 2 tables of 4 which suited the 4 kids. The value for money is fantastic - 20 dumplings for $12 (coming from Australia, I find this amazing!). Service was reasonably good - a bit slow on the final dish... More
