You might not expect to find great dumplings on upper Rathdowne Street, but you will. Come early to this elegant den if you want one of the downstairs tables and the trolley experience. They do a great version of the Peking duck, replete with glassy shards of crisp skin, and stout little prawn-stuffed eggplant rolls in blackbean sauce. Youโ€™re looking at a relaxed, refined experience where the waiters wear suits, so maybe save this one for when you know youโ€™re not going to pour your chrysanthemum tea and chilli all over the linen tables, okay?
