The next time you are at the Central Markets why not make a day of it, and have lunch at Dumpling King. This restaurant, which is located at 5/85 Grote Street (opposite the new bus terminal), offers a wide selection of Asian dishes ,including meat based and vegetarian dumplings, noodle dishes soups and the kid's favourite, fried rice.
If your looking for a fancy place to go, then this is not for you, however, if your looking for a place where the atmosphere is relaxed and informal, and the prices are cheap with the average price being $8 to $10 a dish, then this is the perfect place to try. I particularly like ordering four dishes, placing them in the centre of the table and letting the kids try a bit of everything. They can also have a go at eating with chopsticks, which is a great laugh at times, but knives and forks are supplied on request. Their photo board on the wall is great as the kids can see what they are ordering.
The service is okay, they have no Eftpos facilities and the nearest toilets are across the road in the bus terminal, but their servings are generous, and everything that we ate was freshly cooked, tasted great and for .50c each, we grabbed three disposable containers and took our left overs home.
