Go to this restaurant quite often. The dumplings are fantastic but their other dishes are really good as well. Just be prepared to wait a while if going on a weekend or evening as there can be a long line. Prices are reasonable as well .

Brought my international visitor to this great restaurant for a cultural dining experience and it did not disappoint! We ordered a mixture of items from the menu but the high lights were the dumpling with the broth inside and the rainbow beef - delicious.

We came to this restaurant for an old friend reunion dinner, but met with a horrible & frustrating experience. The extremely poor customer service left us disappointed and angry. After standing outside waiting patiently (for a bit over an hour) for the 8 of us - where we are next in line for any table for 8. The table become... More

What a fantastic feed, we had four dishes between us, rice, pork buns and two types of dumplings. Everything was delicious, they have a lot of chefs working non-stop in the kitchen, so all the food is prepared fresh when you order it. The restaurant always seems full, but the service is very efficient and the turnover of customers is... More

We love this place. Its always busy. The service is fast. Watch the line of people outside on a Friday evening. Recommend the Lamb and Leek Dumplings - fried, flat rice noodle with chicken and the shallot pancakes (spring onion pancakes) are the best!

This restaurant always full packed most of the time. Service was quick and food was excellent. Love the pan fried pork buns. If you can't wait for the queues please consider take away. One of my fave Chinese food restaurant in Sydney.
