This place is currently "closed for renovation". It's anyone's guess whether it will re-open in the same guise as before or as something new. Hopefully the latter!

Shanghai Dumpling House... Large servings, cheap & nasty dumplings. Tasteless & Im pretty sure they were just frozen and re heated. Would not go back or recommend anyone went. Cash only will not accept card.
