Absolutley, this was exactly everything i thought i would be plus more. The food was mind blowing, wasnt expecting the flavour hit that you get with the signature dumplings. Love love love.
The food was good but the service was severely lacking. The waiter did not check on us and how we were travelling. Waited over 25 minutes to get dessert where we had to wave at a waiter to come serve us. We didn’t get asked for drink top ups, nor did we get asked how the food was. Nutella dumplings were not cooked enough. After complaining, nothing was done except ‘we will advise management’. All the other food was delicious but the service was a let down.
First time dining at Drumplings; and would totally come back. Beef Rendang dumplings were awesome; with a sharing plate of spiced calamari. 10/10 would recommend!
Food was delicious, service was brilliant. 10/10 would recommend.
Nice food, but terrible service, had to wait a while to be seated, even though we booked. There were 3 of us but we were squished on to a table for 2. We had to ask 3 times for menus and a 3rd table setting & twice for table water. One of the girls working (with very blonde hair) was great though!
Delicious food and drinks. Great service. We will be back!
What a great little place. Small space but great food and friendly service. The cheeseburger and randang dumplings were a crowd favourite!
Majority of the food was great, the traditional Prawn dumplings were a bit disappointing.
Was excessively overcrowded in the small restaurant, several times we were asked to move our chairs due to servers being unbaled to get through which really dulled our experience. Kind of disappointed as this was our first time coming to drumplings and probably will be our last.
Would highly recommend expanding to accommodate the restaurant's popularity.
Waiter was too focused on my girlfriend and being rude towards me while he was supposed to take my order. I’m flattered but also amazed he would do this.
Preferred the old layout of tables. It seemed noisier than last time. Still serves amazing food.
Delightful spot in ! the middle of CBD!
Great back garden, friendly service and
Traditional And trendy food. Lunar NY so went with green papaya salad with prawns and prawn, chive. Dumplings!
Fantastic dumplings - well worth the visit ... good for vegan eaters
I enjoy their food however after they got my order wrong and didn’t bring the food out. They then overcharged me due to this incident so I am unsure if I would go back. The place is nice and trendy but on the pricey side.
Service on the day was great however I have been struggling to talk to them about getting the money back (it’s been 2 days so far and I haven’t received my money).
Incredible dumplings, super fast service. The restaurant is very trendy but I felt the music was a bit loud to be able to have a conversation without having a to shout a little. It’s a little pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.
Good food great service
Very expensive for what u received not enough food
Dumplings cold and very bland
The food was delicious and the ambiance was great, however very overpriced. Each plate was quite expensive considering you only got 5-6 dumplings. Not great value for money.
Great food and the service was really friendly 😊
Exceptional food, friendly staff and great service. Highly recommend
I would recommend drumplings to a friend however I do find it to be quite expensive for what you get. Maybe bigger portion sizes for similar prices would be better. The music was also super loud and hard to talk over at times.
Also found our plates were getting taken away to quickly after finishing our meals.
Haven't been since the new menu but happy to report fantastic again.
Came here on a date and was not disappointed,
Amazing atmosphere and service.
Good value for the bottomless brunch,
Staff were amazing.
Food was subpar, very overpriced and sacrilegious. Staff was very uninterested and the manager was quite arrogant to other customers.
None of the staff on the floor seemed to care I was there, the dumplings were not great, and there was less in the serve than what it says in the menu. I told the waiter this on paying and the he laughed and continued to charge me full price. And then suggested I tip. When I Asked for a receipt I was told they couldn’t print one.... I will not be back.
Amazing food, amazing staff and all round great ambiance!
Food was ok, but the service was what let them down. People were getting turned away but if the wait stafd were on the ball and didnt just dance to the music instead of clearing plates and serving customers we would have freed up a table long before we did. Cheeseburger and aussie meat pie dumplings were our stand out. But seriously tighten up your service and turn over your tables quicker, youd be making a hell of a lot more money
Drumplings is my absolute favourite. I could eat there everyday if my bank account allowed it!
The menu was really innovative and put a modern spin on dumplings. The menu was extremely well-priced. I could not fault the food and I was impressed that the staff were willing to constantly check that my guests and I were satisfied with the food. The place was a little bit loud and crowded, but I think that is more so reflective of the great quality of the restaurant, so it did not phase me too much. Overall extremely satisfied with the experience and will definitely be returning and recommending Drumplings. Thank you to all the Drumplings staff for an incredible evening.
Amazing food and service! Manager was very friendly and welcoming, all other staff very knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely be back
Cocktails are amazing!!!!!!! Food is amazing!!! A little on the pricier side but still great value for money in my opinion. Would DEFINITELY come here again.
Great food and fantastic vibe.
We really enjoyed our experience here and would highly recommend.
Love the new flavours and great that you've kept my old favorites too. Would love there to be better wines (doesn't have to be a bigger selection just better quality) it's the only downside of eating here.
We had an amazing time. The food was fantastic and the staff so friendly. Very quirky cool decor, loved it 👍
Great night overall. Food was great, as always. And wait staff really friendly.
Was told we had the table for 2 hours, no dramas. However, felt pressure from front of house staff when had finished dinner and were finishing drinks, front of house staff member told on of our party that they needed the table eventhough we still had 40min before the 2 hours was up.. bit rude tbh.
Great place to check out if you have never been before. Reservations are for 90 mins - we had no problem with that however the waiter kept saying to us "tick tock" only 5 minutes after sitting down to get us to hurry up and order. This was a big turn off. Didn't feel very welcome and felt like they couldn't wait for us to leave. Maybe visit during their quieter times if you want to enjoy the food and ambiance.
Drumplings is by far my favourite restaurant in Melbourne, and frequent this place regularly. I always bring my friends and family there when they’re visiting melbourne. My cousin from nz was visiting and we ordered a lot of food. We believe that the waiter and served some of our food to another table, and when we questioned the staff about the food that we were missing, it seemed as if the kitchen staff didn’t believe that we were missing food as we had 3 different waiters come out and question us. Each time we told them what we were missing and each time we were told that the kitchen staff sent the food out. Eventually they sent our missing food out, to find that we were a couple of dumplings short. The waiters were nice and had it fixed but it felt awkward having to do so because it felt like the kitchen staff didn’t want to replace our food, so tried to short change us. The only other issue was that we ordered the new cherry ripe dessert dumplings and it’s advertised as 5 dumplings but we only got 4. We were told it was typo. Saying all of this, the waiter was really nice and gave us a bit of a discount. Drumplings is still my favourite restaurant but this experience made me feel off, especially when I’m showing a family member this place for the first time. Side note: food was amazing, as always.
The food is awesome- the selection of dumplings is great with unusual ones to try- like mac n cheese & pepperoni pizza, as well as good vegan & gluten free options. Yummy cocktails! The staff were super lovely & we had a lot of fun with them! They were attentive & friendly & enthusiastic about the food & their work!
Its a novelty, but far off the dumpling/food quality available for the same price within walking distance
Great. Lots of share plates. Lovely for Sunday lunch.
The signature dumplings were awesome. Really tasted like described. Especially the mac&cheese, cheesburger and meat pie.
