Good dumplings and duck. Fairly priced and quick service, good spot in china town. Very often there is a queue but it is quick.

I love this restaurant. It's fast service, cheap and cheerful and delicious. I am surprised at the other reviews as I have visited this restaurant time and time again and never been disappointed.

I don't understand the negative reviews. Ok the service isn't tip-top but that is I'm afraid authentically Chinese (I can say this as a half Chinese person who's been to China). The dumplings were delish and being prepared fresh in the window. The atmosphere was nice. I would highly recommend it. Of course if you want more of a sitdown spot with perfect service (and non-authentic food) head to one of the tourist trap restaurants in the vicinity.

I went there this week with a friend. The display of the making process of dumplings and steamed baos had my attention so we decided to try. We came to sample the dumplings and baos (@£5-6.5 for 8 huge pieces), so we went for those. Both were good, the soup dumplings were better, as the skin on the shanghainese baos were a little dry. We also had a couple of "starter" dishes, the stirfried aubergine,potato&peppers was yum and authentically drowned in oil. Dan Dan noodles were thick and freshly made but came with too much sauce. We had a lot of food and the bill came to £28 with soft drinks. Next time I will try the All-you-can-eat hotpots the neighbouring tables were all enjoying. I felt that it is quite similar to the "home-style" cooking little restaurants and canteens that are ubiquitous on the streets of Beijing. Fine dining it certainly is not, I wouldn't recommend it for romantic dates or special occasions. But if you are in this parts of town and fancy a quick bowl of hot filling dumplings you can do a lot worse for £5.

I will let you judge for yourself if this is a good restaurant worth queuing for a table or not. My wife and I queued for half an hour, there were 4 tables worth of customer walked out in succession; one of the manager blatantly lied that those people were coming out from the toilets, there were no free tables. The other manager seated us instead. Placed the order but never arrived after another half an hour. I went to the toilet and saw the chef walking out without washing his hands, straight back to make dumplings with his bared hands. My wife saw the manager draped his dirty jacket sleeve right across the dishes of dumplings he is about to serve other customers. We were glad the food never arrived, and simply walked out of the restaurant - of course without asking for the bill.

The Food Pot

Terrible, terrible restaurant. Poor food and even worse service. What looks like an attractive and rather inviting restaurant with it's large glass window, where one can observe chefs hard at work skillfully making dumplings, is actually a front to one of the worse meals we've had in China Town. The dumplings are average at best and the staff entertainingly bad.
