Late lunch on FRI around 2pm. Considering they're called Dumpling Inn, I wasn't impressed. Service was fast but the waiter never checked up on us. We ran out of water & wanted to order more white rice. Facility looked clean. We ordered: Soup Dumpling (XLB)...More

The dumplings are awesome. The ones with a little broth inside are delicious. The lo-mein is great. Whiskey, saki, this was a great team building lunch.

This is such a great spot for Chinese...yes they have awesome dumplings but the whole menu is really top notch. They have a full service bar, which is not typical for this type of restaurant but much appreciated.
