We felt like eating dumplings, and after reading the reviews we went for this restaurant... It was totally disappointing. Maybe the main Chef was on holidays, but the dumplings were not tasty at all, and the shrimps dumplings had the head of the shrimps included! o_O
I understand why they are not in the 10nely planet..

An English sign at the front so it's easier to find. It located on west street at the start very close the bus station (west street bends around the corner from the main drag and it's up that way).
We order 3 plates of dumplings and a few beers. pork with chives, shrimp and also vegetable.
The plate is about 12 on a plate served on rice paper. I think ours came fried on the bottom and we wanted steam (you ask for fried - so maybe worth stated you want steamed it's that's the way you want to go). The pork and chive was excellent, shrimp was average and using the dried shrimp you can buy in shops, vegetables was good but nothing special.
I would not say this place was the best but it's a solid performer. At 10:00am you can go and watch and learn how they make e dumplings which is a nice tough.
All in all a good experience but not king.

Dumpling King is located on New West St. near the bus station. The owner, Peter, speaks English and is very friendly. We ate here twice and the food was consistently good. The dumplings are top-notch! They are served covered with rice paper, which was a nice touch. The soups were also excellent.

The service was as friendly as it gets in China. This is a real gem of a restaurant and as the sign says, “We are not in Lonely Planet, but you should eat here.” That’s a pretty fair statement.

The fried dumplings are tasty and the mixed plate allows trying three different kinds. We also had the beer fish and fried cabbage with two big beers-- all very good and at a very reasonable price (approximately $20). Staff English is sufficient.
