“A new gem on Chapel St”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We ate here on an all you can eat deal. OMG - so much food. We got to the point where we had to ask the waiter to stop bringing out any more food, there was simply so so much. The dumpling here are brilliant. Love them.

“What a Gem!”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We stumbled upon this establishment by chance and loving DUMPLINGS, we meandered in. A big, opulant restaurant, rich colour scheme and very roomy we were shown to a table. Everything impressed from the smoothly laquered tables with the restaurant's insignature, the eating utensils and condiments at the ready on each table, the varied menu to the very reasonable prices. Our order arrived quickly, various dumplings and a couple of meat dishes and rice. DeLish! Only surprise was that it is CASH ONLY. Fortunately we were in a position to do this but it may catch you out. A wider selection of sauces at the table like a sweet chilli, perhaps, with the condiments already there, would be good, too. A great spot for a quick meal or leisurely degustation. We will be back.
