Cute little place to get some dumplings and buns. Nice outside seating. Dumpling bento was surprisingly filling. The Dumplings were tasty as well as the noodles. The piggy bao was good but a little too fatty. A bit pricey compared to other dumpling restaurants in...More

There are a multitude of restaurants on Convoy Street of every Asian flavor. We didn't know exactly what we wanted and just cruised the street to see what hit us. We saw this one and were drawn in by the cute name and good Yelp...More

The portions were small here. Baos were $4 - $5 and the size of a taco, but tasty. The soup dumplings were very yummy, but nobody in our party liked the dan dan noodles (very small portion) which had a peanuty sauce that was thick....More

In an area with lots of Asian restaurants. Ordered a bunch of dishes to try. Favourites were the beef ho fun and the 3 cup chicken, both of which packed a lot of flavour. The back patio is really pretty and cosy, enclosed by greenery.

The dumplings were really good. Noodle dishes less so. Their January special was egg dumplings, which were delicious. Not too many vegetarian options. Outdoor seating much nicer than indoor. It’s kind of cool to see them make the dumplings.
