This is a fully Chinese venue well patronised by Chinese families and some Europeans. Our table had seven family and was treated to excellent Chinese dishes and very good service. The staff were very helpfully and each dish that was ordered was ample for each person to have a good sampling. The dumplings and sweet and sour dishes were very... More

Big fan of the Barrilla Dumplings. Quality dumpling, and like pretty much everything else too (Except for the Gong-Pao Chicken, which is a bit too sweet and weird.) Dumplings are juicy, delicious. Price is reasonable. Staff are busy for sure but they tries to be responsive as much as they can. In general, I like to try out different restaurants,... More

Been to Barrilla Dumpling a few times now. The staff are really terrible and lack any sign of warmth or friendliness, but it's ok as the food is awesome! The dumplings are perfect, absolutely delicious. We had a couple of other (non dumpling) items from the menu too which were also delicious. The standout dish was the "fried french bean... More

The staff here show not a sign of warmth or friendliness. The food is so good (and so it should be...dumplings aren't that difficult) that we go there quite often and every time wish there was just a flicker of gratitude or something...going to the counter causes a slamming down of an account, and not one word of thanks. A... More

always had good food here - they do dumplings to take away and cook at home too. Even our 12 year old loves these!

Came here for lunch with family and nearly 4 year old daughter . She ate 8 dumplings! So good. Ordered pork and coriander steamed dumplings and also prawn and pork steamed shaomai (possibly spelt wrong sorry). Fabulous.

Our family of 5, often with friends in tow, have regularly visited this place for dinner and have never been disappointed. Always busy, there is at times a need to wait for a table to become available and the staff are busy, polite but can appear a bit abrupt but that sort of adds to the busy atmosphere. Food is...

Staff were disinterested and quite rude - pushing people from table to table. They forgot our order and pretended that they hadn't taken it. The dumplings were average and dry. Overall, disappointing. How the Metro Cheap Eats could have called these dumplings little pillows of joy is beyond me. They need to try a decent Din Tai Fung somewhere in... More

Took the family along for a break from the normal Sunday roast. Everyone enjoyed their meals immensely. As per the sizzling beef and sweet and sour pork were delicious! Dumplings also were amazing. Service could be a little better but was adequate. It didn't detract from the good time we all had.
