It’s not the only joint in Sydney claiming rights to the dumpling throne, but the crown jewels here won’t disappoint. Don’t come for the scenery - the familiar tissue box-topped tables - come for the dumplings. The 30-odd options don’t stop at the usual suspects when it comes to fillings. Pork with eggplant is a surprise hit, and all the vegetarian concoctions are light and tasty. Service can be scattered, but they won’t mind if you linger near the counter watching the wizardry of dumpling design while you wait. Life is too short to cut carbs but the entree salads are fresh and hit the spot for those craving some greens with their dumpling feast.
