Opened not too long ago at the Sefton Plaza Shopping Centre, Dumpling Go Go offers both a decent range of dumplings and Asian-style dishes. Each table has a selection of sauces that you can use to either make dipping sauces for the dumplings or to add more flavour to your dishes. We particularly enjoyed their chilli sauce which had a good amount of dried shrimp to complement the chilli.

Great for those that like something spicy, the minced pork sauce used in the Dan Dan Spicy Pork Mince Noodles had a good amount of spicy flavour with pieces of bok choy to add some freshness to the dish. To best enjoy the dish, stir the pork mince into the noodles before eating them to spread the flavour throughout the noodles.

If you are looking for a noodle soup dish, you could consider ordering the Taiwan Beef in Noodle Soup. The noodles were cooked to al dente partnered well by generous sized pieces of beef which were cooked just right. The soup the noodles were cooked in notably had a good amount of spices to give the dish that distinctive "Chinese herbal" taste.

One of the various dishes served alongside rice, the Mapo Tofu had chunks of tofu that were soft and silky complemented by the slices of pork. The sauce also had enough spice to make eating the dish enjoyable but yet mild enough that it can be enjoyed by those not used to spicy foods.

Another choice for the rice dishes is the Fried Crumbed Chicken on Rice. The size of the crumbed chicken is enough for one with the crisp coating of the chicken contrasting well with the flesh. The curry sauce I chose for the dish is quite mild and also had a good amount of vegetables to provide some texture. There is also the option of having the chicken served with gravy instead of curry sauce.

For those that prefer dry noodle dishes, Dumpling Go Go also offers a selection of stir-fried noodle dishes. The Fried Noodles with Seafood Combination had a good amount "charred" flavour with the various types of seafood cooked to perfection. There was also enough sauce to lift the flavour of other ingredients without drowning out the other ingredients.

The Fried Flat Rice Noodles is a bit similar to the fried noodles dishes but uses flat rice noodles as opposed to the thinner variety. Compared to the previous dish, the flavour of the sauce is a bit stronger while still having the degree of "charred" flavour we desired. We chose to have our dish made with beef but you have the choice of having it made with pork or chicken instead.

Given that dumplings were what the restaurant is named after, we decided to order some of them to see what they were like. To our delight they were well done with a juicy filling encased in a wrapper that was not too thick. The dumplings are available with pork, chicken & prawn, beef and vegetarian fillings with the choice of having them served in a soup.

The ambience of the restaurant is similar to a small café with the tables spaced a good distance apart from each other. Parking is off little issue with the Sefton Plaza's car park offering a good amount of parking space.
