There's a special menu available at lunch hour - at least during the week with a pretty good variety of dishes. Seafood, meat and vegetarian, many (most?) with noodles. Ample portions and very tasty. The restaurant is nicely decorated, clean, with friendly servers.

We tried the dumplings and they were very good. Then each of us got the Pad Thai, the chicken version was very salty, the shrimp version was ok. The service was very fast and attentive. Would like to go back and try some other items.

I found David’s Dumpling & Noodle Bar on Trip Advisors! I agree 100% with the Excellent reviews! I had “David’s Original Half-Fried Dumplings” and “Malaysian Chicken Satay” they were extraordinary!

The dumplings are unbelievable and the Shrimp Rangoon was the best I’ve ever tasted. I ordered through Door Dash, but next time I want to visit in person. I can’t wait to go back!
