You want atmosphere? Make your own. You want dumplings? You got it, with about two-dozen varieties; their tastiness making up for the lack of presentation. Steamed chicken and coriander dumplings are delicious, the firmness of the dough just right. More unusual varieties are good too, perhaps pan-fried cabbage with vermicelli and beancurd, or prawn and tofu. For mains, diced chicken has a hearty inclusion of greens such as Chinese broccoli and bok choy, and a vegetable and cashew stir-fry is colourful and flavoursome. With bright lights and unadorned service, this is a place to chow down rather than linger longer.
