136 Houhai Dumpling House Reviews

  • Food arrived 40 mins past expected delivery time & was cold. Bland food & over priced

  • Broccoli and dumplings very nice. Gong Bao (Kung pao) chicken was padded out with a random green vegetable which was not mentioned in the description, and which tasted very much like a vegetable I hate.

  • Yum dumplings and the broccoli was a real surprise - didn't think we'd like it cold but it was delicious! Great value (today's lunch) and delivered before estimate!

  • Wish I could submit pictures....
    My soup was at the bottom of the bag not hard to glad wrap it individually so it won't leak in transit.
    Delivery guy was unpologetic and said oh well.

  • The dumplings were very nice but the delivery was a bit slow (30 minutes later than advised). The biggest downside was that both the dumplings and the soft drink were transported in the same bag making the dumplings cold and the drink warm. That's not how insulated bags work!

  • Efficient service, not great food.
    We had the chicken & ginger prawn dumplings. The chicken dumplings were more like an average dim sim & the prawn ones were inedible.
    We ordered the cold garlic broccoli which was nice but to clarify the garlic is raw.

  • Dumplings were good, but the Beijing Style Noodle I found inedible. Never had this dish elsewhere so maybe it's just my taste. Fried rice was average.

  • Fantastic value for money- have ordered over 40 meals and never had to send anything back. Can get very busy, but food always seems to arrive within the hour. I wish other restaurants had this consistency. Hi 5 hou hai!

  • Dumps are awesome. Beijing cabbage hearts are to die for. The entre of cold chicken with chilli oil was not great! First time that we have a less than great dish.

  • I didn't enjoy the dumplings. The dough was thick and pasty, the flavours of the fillings weren't great either. The dipping sauce was most disappointing. I'm not sure how they have been rated so high previously. I threw the majority of the order in the bin. Not sure how they can brand themselves a 'dumpling' house.

  • Food was fresh, tasty and generous. Quality ingredients present such as the prawns in the fried rice weren't stingy small shrimps and the dumpling filling tasted like real meat.

    The one let down was service and how long the order took. Quoted 20 minutes for pick up when it took 45 minutes on a Tuesday night, also almost received wrong order and staff seemed to not give a definite answer.

    Will recommend for the quality and try again myself hoping service improves.

  • Delivery was on time but Beijing noodles were very thick and doughy and there wasn't enough sauce at all to go with. Dumpling skin was also thick although the filling tasted okay. I don't think I'll order from here again.

  • food is cheap but quality is at best B-C grade. I ordered in the combo deal 3 slice beef but only received one slice beef and one broccoli in stead ($5 less) and missing one slice beef ($10 worth).
    Change delivered item without notice AND missing food for $15 dollar worth with a $50 dollar order... I feel ashamed being an Asian because of this place.
