Thrilled to find GF dumplings! Entire GF menu available. The chicken satay and apple pie (!!!) dessert dumplings were all delicious. Some risks: menu does warn of possible cross contact, and waiter originally brought non-GF dipping sauce, glad I asked.

Excellent dumplings, most available gf. Server was very knowledgeable about gluten free options and made sure to provide gf sauces as well. Orchard Pig cider available.

By far the best GF dumplings I’ve ever had! Great selection of dumplings & side dishes. The spinach tofu dumplings with a peanut sauce and the cucumber salad were especially good! They have a gf menu & the staff were knowledgeable about cross contact. I felt very comfortable eating there.

really great selection of gluten free dumplings (as well as sides and desserts) + the best gf dumplings I’ve ever had - they seemed to be pretty close to the real thing! the gf dumplings are a bit more expensive than the regular ones but very much worth it for the taste :)

I haven’t had dumplings in such a long time and when I have it’s been frozen home cooked ones. These were delish and so good to eat fresh in a restaurant. I went with the gf platter and had the pork, duck and cheeseburger flavour. Cheeseburger honestly tasted like a McDonald’s burger! It was yummy but can’t go past more traditional flavours. Pork was my favourite and enjoyed the gf soy sauce as well. Good service and would go back for sure. Gf menu available with all flavours. They asked about allergies when ordered and confirmed coeliac and nil concerns from waiter on this

I haven’t had dumplings since being celiac! They were great, gluten free soy sauce served in a different colour pot. I wasn’t asked about ‘allergies’ when I ordered and the website states a high chance of cross contamination which I knew before I ordered. Shame the lunch deal doesn’t include the gluten free menu. Cannot comment on safety as didn’t see the kitchen but GF came out on separate coloured plates. My friend had the tempura aubergine which the waitress said was GF and I could try - highly recommend this. I had chicken satay, pork belly, prawn and chive and the mushroom and truffle (this was my favourite). Unfortunately we were too full for desert, those little dumplings are filling but I would definitely go back!

The prawn and chive was the best dumpling. Tried the pork belly and chicken satay as well, which were ok. The gf ugly noodles were also a worthwhile side dish as well.

Really impressed by the protocol here. All the gf dishes are served on the same color dishes, so it’s clear to the kitchen and serving staff that car needs to be taken without the obvious othering of food coming out flagged. The staff were really clued in - I ordered a bottle of ginger beer, which had barley malt in it, and as soon as the server set it down she picked it back up and whisked it away, remembering that I said I had coeliac.

Were these the best dumplings I’ve ever had? No. Did I get sick? Also no. So I’ll take it as a win since gf dumplings are so hard to find. Ample gf sides as well which were yummy!

Gluten free menu was nice to see. Though I had low confidence on delivery to the table. Labels or specifically calling out the dishes are GF would be appreciated. Found the menu confused and the flavours were not amazing.

Whole GF menu of dumplings. Expensive but absolutely delicious. Can't guarantee no cross contamination but I've been twice and never been ill, despite being really sensitive.
