You'll find Steam Up in the Vic Hotel Arcade on the Smith Street Mall. There is parking at the West Lane Car Park or alternatively on Knuckey or Cavanagh Street. It's a short walk from the Paspaley building and a few minutes walk down to the Waterfront. The decor is basic but comfortable enough for a quick feed to combat the heat.
Steam Up specialises in dumplings. You can get them steamed or pan-fried. It's the only place in Darwin that sole focus is on dumplings. Steam Up also has a variety of Noodle options and Laksa's available.
I came for the dumplings. I had the pork and vegetarian ones. They were moist and had all the right condiments, including chilli oil (which I love). The owners are friendly, the service was no frills, and efficient.
