The dumplings in this place are really nice. Bubble tea is not the real deal, but the dumplings are good. It's cool to see how they're hand-made.

Stopped in for an early lunch and we were able to get seats at the counter allowing us to watch them assemble the dumplings. The kids loved to watch and took loads of pictures (kept them occupied). The tasty dumplings come with an assortment of fillings, some quite non traditional for those who are more adventurous and may be steamed or pan fried. They also have soups and salads for those who are dumplinged out.

We went to Dumpling Man with high expectations and they were not met....maybe it's because we did take out- but when we got the food home, the dumplings were sticky and clumpy and had lost their crunchiness and the soup dumplings were dry.
I might suggest eating in to really test the quality but the place is quite small and not conducive to a gathering.

Great experience at the Dumpling man! Very small place but you can set at the counter and watch them make the dumplings. We had some of the pan seared pork dumplings and they where delicious. Fun place to go for an experience.

I have never gone out and had "dumplings". Just not what we go out for where I come from. But this experience with co-workers was just fantastic. As a group we ordered just about every kind they had, grilled and steamed. ALL were excellent. For my first time, I really enjoyed the shrimp and pork ones. The place is a hole in the wall, packed in tight, just about standing room only the night we went, but man was it worth it. Truly a unique experience for someone who is just not a city-boy at all. Must try if for nothing else to really expand your culinary checklist.
