Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The dumplings were good, the service was efficient. Easy to share and you can order portions by portions, so that you don't order to much or too less, if you are not in a hurry.

We gave up after the two white wines we wanted were out of stock and the bottle of red which we swapped for couldn’t be opened as they didn’t have a corkscrew……Booking the restaurant had also been difficult as the person who answered the phone...couldn’t speak English…..so we went next door and to Il Verde and had an excellent meal with good wine.More

The food was below average service was nice. Our soup dumplings had no soup in them, the pan fried dumplings were burnt and the stemmed dumplings fell apart straight away. The only good thing was the pork spring rolls. Honestly not worth going better off...going to little red dumpling instead.More

This place is terrible.. We booked a group for lunch well ahead of time. Despite accepting the booking they obviously weren't prepared for us, as the food took an eternity to arrive (almost an hour). They were also incapable of taking an order and two...of our group were given something completely different to what they asked for. At the end they also charged us for to additional meals that we didn't order. When questioned about the additional meals they threw the blame back on our group.More

There, I said it! I've told friends and family near and far that they have to eat here. In fact, I feel like I've screamed it from the rooftops (not really, but preach!). The little morsels of divine creation (aka dumplings) served here have to...be eaten to be believed. The perfect outer wrapper in terms of thickness and texture is filled with a mouth watering filling that when cooked is juicy, moist and seriously moreish. I also recommend the shallot pancakes and string beans. I promise you will not be disappointed!More

Just like mum made! Finally found Brisbane's best baos! Moist, tasty, authentic pork filling. So good went back again. Also enjoyed pan fried dumplings. Busy, nearly standing room only but prompt service with a smile.

We found this restaurant around the corner from where were we staying. Favourite dish on the menu? Stir fry beans... fresh, crisp and very delicious. Dumplings were also good - I prefer steamed and my partner prefers poached and both were available. Steamed rice was...ok. Service impeccable and quick. Highly recommend a visitMore

Had a catchup with great friends at The Fat Dumpling King St Fortitude Valley the other night we were going onto another gathering later so we found this spot and it was fantastic! The menu was vast with lots to choose from and the dumplings...were yummy. It took no time at all to have all of our fabulous food delivered to our table. The wine flowed and we had a fabulous time. We all went onto our second engagement well fed we totally enjoyed our experience at the Fat Dumpling.More

Located in the new King St dining precinct, Fat Dumpling is a restaurant we will be back to. Quick, helpful service with a smile along with fresh, tasty food and reasonable prices, what more could you ask for. Interior decor is lovely or you could...sit outside, streetwise. Parking is available on the street or in nearby parking stations.More

This is a gem. Great food and value for money. Had dinner here with my husband didn't feel like anything too heavy or eating at one of the more expensive restaurants close by. Entrees average about $8 and mains under $20. We had vege spring...rolls, cumin lamb entree with steamed rice. ( good size servings) For our mains stir fried green beans, pork ciao long boa (steamed) and prawn + garlic chives (pan fried). Wow the food tasted fantastic. Staff friendly service fast. We felt guilty not being able to eat the rest of the food. Atmosphere and design of the place not bad. Would difinately come back and eat here again and tell my family and friends.More

There're a few new restaurants opened along King street by RNA. Tried one of them for a late lunch today, Fat Dumplings. Their menu said their food is prepared Fresh & hot (temperature wise) and Northern China home style cooking. Restaurant ambiance is very clean,...modern style not like one at china town with red lanterns. There were 3 choices for lunch specials. Dumplings with salad, chicken noodle soup & prawn & egg fried rice.I had fried rice. Well it wasn't authentic Chinese fried rice. No lard flavor, it was not prawns they are shrimps. Like it said just shrimp & egg no other veggies. No garnishing. 😢 The rice they use is short grain not long so it's bit sticky Volume was good but bit oily so last 1/4 of plate you can really feel that heavy oily feeling. They are trying to use nice plates but it had rough glazing so using metal spoon (even if with porcelain spoon) it made grinding noise. Price? $15 dollars, not worthy.More
