This is a tiny place that packs a big punch. Handmade fresh dumplings, fabulous wonton soup, simple fresh stir fries -- most dishes are $10 to $12 and it is BYO! Phil the owner is such a terrific guy, greets you every day with a huge smile,, helps mums with prams and people with parcels, is always adding new dishes and trying new things (like the fabulous homemade chili-garlic-sesame sauce that now sits on each table). He's the kind of person who learns everyone's name and makes every dining experience special. His place is spotlessly clean and oh you just can't go past those pan fried (or steamed) pork dumplings with Chinese Black vinegar and 2 kinds of chili sauce. It is quickly becoming a Hobart institution and a place we eat regularly at! Yummy every time!!

Steamed, pan fried or deep,fried dumplings all hand made in house are a delight. The pan fried seafood were stuffed full and very tasty. We also had the steamed pork which were also ver good. We'll try them the other way round next time. Service is friendly, the place nice and clean and welcoming. This isn't a place to sit for a long leisurely meal but it is quick, tasty and clean - great for a light meal before heading to the theatre etc. certainly worth a visit. We'll be back.

What a find!! great little dumpling place that does so much more. Was looking at my hotel room service menu and thinking how crazy the prices were when my partner said he would take a stroll if i want something else. Jumped on trip advisor and saw this place only a 4min walk away so dumplings it was and i must say not disapointed by that at all. I got the pork and they were soooo good, my partner got a noodle dish and he said he was very happy with his meal. They are large portions and very cheap. I will be going back before i leave Hobart thats for sure.
