Dumpling "Master"?? After missing the exit off the 10 for Din Tai Fung in Arcadia, we decided to just go here (based on Yelp reviews, which are usually pretty accurate, but NOT this time). The dumplings were very dry inside and lacked flavor.. We also ordered the pan-fried onion cake. I've never seen it so thin before, and it hardly had any green onions! We got the Three Ingredients (chicken, pork, beef) Chow Mein, which tasted fine if you compare it to Panda Express' chow mein. And it's not exactly cheap for Chinese food. Almost forgot to mention, the lady (owner?) was not friendly at all. In fact, one customer walked out after the lady spoke to her rudely. The restaurant's been around for a long time, so I'm sure that the food USED to be good (notice the positive reviews were back in 2006/earlier?). There's no way I'm going back. Food and service sucked.

Pros: Can't think of any

Cons: Lack of service, bad food

Amazing fish dumplings! Everything I ate here was far above par. Authentic. If you want some good Chinese, and particularly dumplings - eat here.

Great inexpensive food just like i used to get in Taiwan. My favorite is the pork chop soup with the hand made noodles (tell them to hold the noodles from the soup til everything else is ready). Potstickers, steamed jiaozi, and princess chicken are also good

This restaurant served a few dishes that are cold dishes. An example would be Wine Chicken Legs or Smoke Chicken Legs. As these dishes takes time to cook, they cook it in advance and place it in the refrigerator.

I ordered one of the cold dishes and gave it a try. After eating half way through, I notice that it had a bland taste. I look at the dishes carefully and smell it. It smell like it has been in the refrigerator too long and as if it is faintly spoil. I walk over to the refrigerator and look at the cold dishes they have and most of them look like they have been there for weeks.

I stop eating immediately and pay for the food and left. Later on in the day my stomach felt bad and the taste left from the food here was not too good either.

I would not recommend this restaurant unless you like week old food. Or you could take a chance on the hot cook dishes. But after my experience, I would not take a chance here for any dishes.

PROS: None
CONS: Food kept in the refrigerator too long until spoil.

I've been eatting here since i was about 7, which makes that 18 years I have enjoyed Dumpling Master. Their food is not fancy or gormet by any means, but it's delicious, well priced, and a quick substitute for mom-style Chinese cooking. Their dumplings are well wrapped and tasty, and they offer a nice variety of dumplings (steamed, boiled, or pan-fried with pork, chicken, fish, lamb, vegetarian, etc). I highly recommend their garlic sauteed A-vegetable or hollow vegetable (if in season, just ask). Check the walls and the front doors for added menu items! You can also buy a bag of frozen dumplings (about 40 pieces) made by them for about $20, depending which kind you get. CASH ONLY!

Pros: tasty, good parking, inexpensive

Cons: the dumpster outside, it smells on your way, inside

The 3 ingredient soup w/ handmade noodles is the ultimate comfort food in my book! Great broth and the weighty, chewy noodles are fantastic-- don't let them sit too long otherwise they get mushy. The dumplings are quite tasty. And, my boyfriend loves the hot and sour soup. It's a bit shabby looking but the it's clean and the staff is nice.

I don't think they should be called Dumpling Master. It's a great way to attract non-Asians... but i don't think i will be bringing my business back there. I had their potstickers (gwo-tie or woh-teet) and noodles w/ brown sauce (ja jiang mian), both were mediocre. The steamed dumplings (shao loong bao) are quite large but do not contain as much "juice" as they should. i recommend trying Green Village Restaurant (Lu Yang Chuen). Both their steamed dumplings and potstickers ooze with juice.

Wow! Best Chinese food I've ever had. Super-thick chewy handmade noodles in the soup, great dumplings. I've had the three ingredient soup and the pork soup with potherbs. Both are great, but I can't deny the potherbs--roughly pureed greens on top of the regular soup! So tasty!
Dumpling-wise, I generally prefer steamed to fried. I especially recommend the chicken. It's flavored with green onion and something that tastes like celery (celery leaves, perhaps). Pork are also awesome.
