Honestly, the food is fine but the delivery is abysmal. I ordered an $84 order (including delivery fee and tip) to arrive in an hour. It arrived in an hour and FORTY MINUTES. Cold. Dumpling house offered NOTHING for the inconvenience. I will NEVER order...delivery from them again.More

Every time I have food from Dumpling house I am amazed at the depth of flavor. Each dish has its own unique taste. Their chicken cabbage dumplings are like popcorn hard to stop eating. Tonight I tried their Lamb mixed veggies. It is so delicious,...hearty and healthy. I love their crisp veggie spring rolls. Honestly keep trying different dishes. Once you think you have a favorite another one tops it.More

Excellent vegetarian Chinese food - I am told non-vegetarian is also very good but haven't tried it. All cooked freshly and very well spice.

Our favorite Chinese restaurant closed so we’re looking for a new regular place. Dumpling House is not going to be it. The chicken with vegetables was bland and the mango chicken was covered in a sauce so sweet that it wiped out the mango taste....Service wasn’t great. The cold noodle dish was all vegetables and a few rice noodles- which you could barely see. But the ethnic customers seemed to like their dinners.More

We found the soup dumplings to be decent but not great. The other dishes we order were very greasy. While the flavors were ok, they were almost swimming in oil. To complete our experience they started to mop the floors while we were still eating.

We typically like the food and service and the Dumpling House. That said, we recently ordered food (online directly with the restaurant) and received a confirmation that food will be delivered 45 minutes later. However, 45 minutes passed and as we and our hungry kids...and us were ready to start dinner we received a call that it will take an additional hour to receive the food. At that point it was too late to call another restaurant (the food eventually arrived after 2 hours). I suggest that next time the restaurant should call back shortly after the order is received and not when delivery is anticipated. We like the Dumpling House and hope that this review will encourage them to improve their service.More

We checked into our Hotel after flying for most of the day. This restaurant was chosen because of the interesting menu and delivery. We ordered two types of dumplings and a Vegetable dish. Although we were a ways from the restaurant, the meal was delivered...within 30 minutes. Be aware there is a delivery charge as well as a need to tip the delivery person. We know we were hungry, but the meal surpassed our expectations. All three selections were "yummy" (as my daughter would say.)More

This was the main reason for our trip to the area, and although I have yet to try Boston Chinatown soup dumplings, these exceeded my expectations. Bigger size, cheaper, and more per order than famous spots in NYC. Easy parking and no wait if you...get there before the crowds, service very friendly. Rich broth sealed in a dumpling skin that didn't spill out when you pick them up (a very sad feeling when it happens). We also ordered chicken wings and beef fried rice and that was good too. I don't see a need to travel into Boston, fight crowds and get rushed service if my next experience is like this one. Update: Our second visit and after trying the most popular soup dumpling spot in Boston Chinatown. I stand by my previous review and raise my rating to 5 for friendly service and quality. Also the beef scallion roll is the exclamation point!More

Dumpling House is a cozy restaurant tucked into a small plaza. What attracted me was the variety and Chinese authenticity of the lunch-special menu, which is considerably larger than usual (42 choices) and its offerings such as pig feet, pig intestine, bitter melon, various tofu,...eggplant, etc. Very good food, portions OK. Only drawback of the lunch menu is no appetizer and you need to pay an extra dollar for other than white rice.More

We fell in love with authentic Chinese soup dumplings at another great restaurant in Rockville, MD. We searched Massachusetts and found the Dumpling House. We LOVE their food!!!!!
