The dumplings here were beyond excellent. Fried and steamed were both very good. The pork bun was just OK. The front window has all the workers making the dumplings which was interesting to watch. It is a BYOB for a corkage fee but it was nice having a drink.
An improvement they should make is taking a little longer explaining what each set is. The guy just dropped them off without being very clear on what it was.

Dickson dumpling house is my regular Chinese takeaway place in Canberra. Service is always good, and even when they are busy on a Friday/Saturday night, I never have to wait long for my order to be ready. I have tried quite a few of their dishes and the majority of them have been quite good. I haven't eaten at the restaurant yet (usually get takeaway), as it always seems quite busy, but definitely will in the future.

We had the banquet. A good range of beautiful food. Service was very fast & the staff very nice. More than enough food - enough for lunch tomorrow. The place was plenty busy as well. Will visit again but will focus on the dumplings! Recommend it.

Went as a couple with another couple. Had lots of bites to share and all were delicious, hot steamed dumplings, fresh veg, great salt and pepper calamari... The portions are huge and we appreciated the many vegetarian options. It was very busy on a week night so I would book ahead for weekends, the bustle adds to the atmosphere, comfy and unpretentious

Not somewhere I'd go for a romantic dinner but a great place for a big group of family or friends. Excellent food with plenty of variety, tasty specials including the superb, 'Tea Smoked Duck' and of course dumplings, dumplings and more dumplings, fresh delicious and tasty. Noisy and crowded and bookings a must, most nights of the week but guaranteed satisfying night with good food, efficient service and a price that won't break the bank.
