Formerly going by the name of MW Dumplings, Hindley Dumplings continues to serve the Guilin and LiuZhou noodles that formed a key part of MW Dumplings' menu. The menu is now extended to include laksa and various rice dishes, ensuring that there is something that is suitable for everyone's tastes.
One of the varieties of Dry Guilin Rice Noodles that can be ordered, the meatball in their Meatball Dry Guilin Rice Noodles was of a generous size and very juicy. The noodles were cooked al dente with a generous amount of peanuts to add a delightful crunchy element to the dish. To best enjoy the dish, mix it thoroughly to mix the savoury flavour of the sauce throughout the noodles.

A great option for those that prefer a rice dish, the pork in their Braised Pork on Rice was tender with a delectable savoury flavour from the sauce it was cooked in. The hard-boiled egg had the same flavour as the pork and the tangy preserved vegetable complemented the pork well. A generous bed of rice acted as a good foil to the other ingredients.

For those that want something with a Malaysian flair, there is the Dumpling & Mix Veg with Laksa Soup. The dumplings had succulent pork filling and skin that was not too thick. The pieces of bok choy still had a bit of bite to them and the laksa soup was of a spiciness that should be suitable for most palates. If you desire the dish to be spicier, you can mix in some of the chilli oil provided.

To our delight, the quality of their Fried Pork Dumplings was still the same, with a juicy filling contrasted by the slightly crisp skin. The dumplings came with a serving of the restaurant's special dumpling sauce for an extra element of flavour. Diners can also mix up their own dipping sauce from the soy sauce and vinegar provided at each table.

The restaurant had a comfortable, casual feel with the tables spaced a good distance from each other. Its location makes it convenient for office workers in the CBD, shoppers from Rundle Mall and students from the universities to drop by for delicious Asian dishes.
