Average. Chaotic

Went here due to good reviews.

Overrated for sure. Food average, service chaotic and awfully noisy and hot inside.
I don’t remember the last time the noise in a restaurant was that overwhelming.

Food pretty oily, nothing special at all. Won’t be coming back here.

We had noodles with veg and tofu, steamed veg buns, fried rice etc,

Cons: Noisy and hot inside , Chaos and super busy , Food bland and oily

Hand Pulled Noodles

Really lovely restaurant run by a family.
They offer fresh handmade noodle dishes and dumplings.
Vegan options available. I choose dumplings in vegetable soup and can highly recommend.

Really tasty, not great for vegans

I had the noodle and dumpling soup. The noodles & dumplings are honestly so good, though the dumplings have egg in, and I have just seen reviews saying the broth is beef - i’m not 100% sure as mine didn’t tasty meaty but I can see that it would make sense for the restaurant to cook all broth together. If so I would have appreciated being told this seeing as I ordered a non meat dish.

Pros: Fresh, Delicious, Vegetarian options

Cons: Not vegan friendly

No options

The Soup broth is made of beef & bones when we asked for vegetables they used the same broth - we just left.

Nice fried noodles

The fried noodles with veggies and tofu are really good and it’s fun to watch how they make them. The restaurant and the staff are really lovely. The dumplings have egg tho, I came just for that. They also cook everything in the same soup (with meat).

Lovely place but the dumplings arent vegan!

I saw a few reviews about vegan dumplings but the lady confirmed that they have a pre-made filling with egg, which cant be removed…
The fried noodles with tofu, on the other hand, were delicious and very fresh, highly recommend!
Make sure to ask for no oyster sauce!

Good dumplings, nothing special

I ordered the 8 steamed veggie dumplings. They were nice and made with a spinach and tofu filling. They were served with crushed garlic on the side. I would recommend getting double the amount of dumplings if you want to be full. My pineapple juice was a bit overpriced and cost as much as the dumplings.
Other travellers I dined with weren’t happy with their food (rice dishes and stir fry dishes) and they looked low quality. The staff member who served us wasn’t friendly at all and didn’t look at us when we ordered - we seemed like an inconvenience

Hot, sweaty, family restaurant - wonderful cooking!

When we first walked in it was quite off putting: table inside restaurant was full of family’s possessions. Kids cleared, begrudgingly.
Is absolute mayhem, with dad doing key parts of service but forgot 1/3 of our order (and of course, with Asian food, we couldn’t be sure if it was just coming when it suited the kitchen)
We followed the advice in the headline section of the restaurant and hoped it is accurate, as dad was too busy, and so were the kids (but suspect they’d just tell us what they thought we would want to hear anyway)
Food was amazing: best dumplings I’ve ever had by a country mile, and they are already a real favourite of mine
Noodles didn’t need any source (we were specific about that as per the guide) they were amazing
Kids are either serving or playing around you: it’s a real hard working family restaurant and you start to really enjoy that aspect after it initially being offputting.

Pros: Dumplings: still dreaming of them!, Cute children , Amazing taste!

Cons: Cute children (see pros) do most of the service, Can’t be absolutely sure: followed advice on here, Forgot some of our menu
