As my partner and I were thinking about what to do for the day, I had the sudden craving for delicious dumplings after our recent trip to Melbourne. Immediately we took to the internet and found this gem within a few short blocks from the heart of the valley. While it tends to look closed from the outside, don't let it fool you. At night, this tends to be one of the trendiest dining spots around. With a line out the door and no reservations accepted, it is a bit of a wait, but a great experience nonetheless.

As we were greeted by the friendly waitress, we were quickly seated and were handed a very simple menu with few choices, but all that you really need at the end of the day. The decor made us feel like we were somewhere in Japan (or what I imagine it would be like) and the atmosphere was crowded and full of energy due to the overwhelming popularity of the place. We opted for the chicken karaage and some vegetarian dumplings. While not necessarily out of this world, the dessert sure made up for it with an interesting twist on traditional desserts. While they featured white chocolate peanut butter dumplings and chocolate delights, we opted for the apple pie dumplings served with a dainty side of vanilla ice cream.

While very small and quite crowded, it's definitely a place to experience at least once. With good value for the money and a fun atmosphere with surprisingly good service for the crowd, come and get your dumpling fix and a good time with friends on Brunswick Street.
Sorry I don't agree, I find this place over priced, food very average, not great service. If people in Brisbane think this is good food they really need to try gyozas elsewhere and see what the difference is. I can say 100% that ou will find much better gyoza at a much cheaper price. I would not go to this place it is very average.
