“Pretty good local food, at a fair price.”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

English menu. Good for tourists. Casual, fun atmosphere. Owner and staff very friendly.
Prices are fair. Dumplings are very tasty, and authentic. You can see the staff making them from scratch out in the dining area.

Our Hot/Sour soup had a burnt taste from being heated up quickly, and had blackend pieces in it.

The vegetable dishes, and noodles were nice. The deep fried taro balls are good as well.

“Fast, cheap and cheerful”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Great dumplings delivered at breakneck speed with pints of local draft.
Mr Shi's son Robert (about 5yers) provides endless entertainment as he tries to copy his dad and run the restaurant.

Looking for something fast, easy and filling. Get here

“Tasty dumplings - great local place”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We ate at Mr. Shi's twice during our stay at The Orchid (right across the Hutong).
Great selection and very tasty. There are many innovative types of dumplings offered.

“Amazing dumplings!!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

This guy makes awesome dumplings. We had fried pork and sweet corn dumplings but you can pretty much have any filling you want. Worth a visit!

“Great place for a snack.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We were staying just opposite here at the Orchid Hotel. Popped into Mr Shi's for lunch two days running. Food was good, plentiful and inexpensive. Not a place for long, lingering evening meal but great for what it is.
