Typical surly service here, but your there for the dumplings, steamed or fried Shanghai style, variety of flavours along with some Chinese favourites like sweet n sour, excellent value.

Typical Chinese restaurant:- great food but marred by poor customer service. The dumplings (we had pan fried and wanton in soup) were fantastic. When we first stepped into the restaurant there were no one at the reception counter to greet us (it was the upstairs room next to the main restaurant). There were 2 of us, but the entire area...

This place has gotten busier and sadly they quality of food had gone down. It is expensive too considering what you get. The salted bean where too sugary and dumplings not as good as new flavour dos the road.

I loved my meal! Ordered pork and prawn dumpling, sizzling squid, vegetarian dumpling and wonton soup. The price very reasonable, quick and tasty. The wonton soup was different to what I was used to,probably wouldn't order this again, but would definitely return to barilla! Delicious!!!

Every time we have come here to get the green beans (amazing!) we always complain about the service. Tonight was the worst, the lady on the resister was very rude. Half way through paying she started up a convo with someone else then when one of the staff told her to continue with us she kept giving us the worst... More

Went in to have an evening meal with my friend who is Chinese. Ordered dumplings plus some dishes from the menu. Specifically asked for the dumplings to be steamed and not boiled, but they had clearly been boiled. The menu dishes were dreadful. The service matched. This restaurant proves the rule that you should never order food in a restaurant... More

This is a fully Chinese venue well patronised by Chinese families and some Europeans. Our table had seven family and was treated to excellent Chinese dishes and very good service. The staff were very helpfully and each dish that was ordered was ample for each person to have a good sampling. The dumplings and sweet and sour dishes were very... More

Big fan of the Barrilla Dumplings. Quality dumpling, and like pretty much everything else too (Except for the Gong-Pao Chicken, which is a bit too sweet and weird.) Dumplings are juicy, delicious. Price is reasonable. Staff are busy for sure but they tries to be responsive as much as they can. In general, I like to try out different restaurants,... More

Been to Barrilla Dumpling a few times now. The staff are really terrible and lack any sign of warmth or friendliness, but it's ok as the food is awesome! The dumplings are perfect, absolutely delicious. We had a couple of other (non dumpling) items from the menu too which were also delicious. The standout dish was the "fried french bean... More

The staff here show not a sign of warmth or friendliness. The food is so good (and so it should be...dumplings aren't that difficult) that we go there quite often and every time wish there was just a flicker of gratitude or something...going to the counter causes a slamming down of an account, and not one word of thanks.
