After my first visit here, which for me was not that good to be honest. I had heard from another blogger that the dumplings here are amazing….so I thought lets give here a second chance.

Again just like the last time we were shown to our seat, and told that we had to order at the counter.

Tonight I ordered one style of dumplings and my girlfriend ordered another so we could try two styles.

The Food…

Special Dumplings £6.00
Contains pork, King prawns & Chives


On arrival this looked OK, and I was very interested at how these were going to taste.

For me anyway, these were not that tasty even with the added sauce it still didn’t do much for me.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 2
Presentation : 4

Vegetarian Dumplings £6.00
Contains celery, dried tofu & shitake mushrooms


This was the one that my girlfriend ordered so I tried a few.

Again very dissapointed this had less flavour than mine…

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 2
Presentation : 4


I don’t say this very often but for me this will be my last visit to Dumpling Monkey, both visits just didn’t do anything for me.

There are other similar places near Dumpling Monkey, similar costs that pack a much much better flavour.

Sorry guys!
