    My 3rd time here in about as many weeks and the food is delicious!! Every time! The dim sum is to die for!! The prawn & celery cheung-fun is particularly delicious!!

    Delicious dim sum : soft and fresh. The other dishes are also very nice, especially the egg fried rice and deep fried chicken. Best in Chinatown so far.

    Come here very often for the classic pork and steamed prawn dumplings - goes very well with Tiger Beer. Service and atmosphere are very, very poor though.

    Despite the other opinions, the food was good and standard with other prices around China Town (can't compare with All you can eat Menus)

    Been here a couple of times now and it's definitely one of the better restaurants in China Town. Enjoy!

    I am shocked about the comments below... Food was excellent and the service was fine. Soup dumplings are highly recommended.

    Not the cheapest Chinese restaurant, but the food was top notch, service was really good and had a nice vibe. Busy though, so expect to wait

    Try a wide range of Xiao Long Bao - exceptionally tasty at this spot. Warning: avoid spicy pork Xiao Long Bao unless you wanna burn.🔥💥💀

    Best dim sum place in China Town in my opinion. The servings are pretty big (often 8 instead of the usual 3).

    Good dumpling place eat. Clean, relax. Unfortunately, the staff are mostly temperamental. Surprisingly, even to asians. Which is quite sad really. Otherwise, an excellent place.

    Best soup dumplings (siu loung bao) in London, but the indifferent service nearly ruins the experience. Try the pork ones for good value.

    Siu Leung bao are a specialty here so try a variety. I tend to have the pork and crab dumplings.

    Absolutely the best place to go for dim sum! Steamed prawn ones are all time favourites.

    This is defiantly my spot to go to with all the different choices in Chinese town. Food is was high priced but went down a treat.

    Fantastic place for dim sum. The soup filled dumplings are incredible!

    It may not be as groundbreaking as it thinks – they need to work on staff training in a big way – but Dumplings’ Legend offers a fresh approach for Chinatown. We gave it 3 stars. Read more

    Dumplings are really nice, but some serious staff training is needed in relation to service, it's rubbish!

    The food here are good (provided you know what to ask for - Siu Loung Bao dumplings) but the service is absolutely terrible!

    Good food but staff need some more training and when we were in the place there was something leaking from the ceiling... Avoid duck soup which contains meat with small bones.

    Actually the dumplings are great if not as good as Taipei. Try the taro pastry too!

    Singapore curry was drenched with chilli, dumplings are good! They have added service to the bill, however service is not the best...

    The food was good, but the service was quite poor actually - waiting staff didn't know what they were bringing to the table therefore some of us weren't able to recognise their dish of choice.

    Dumplings are as good as in Shanghai... Go for the soup dumplings. Waiters are nice but as in china, service is just average

    the Peking duck is a huge disappointment. the skin is not crispy enough at all. looks the same as normal roasted duck. the waiter doesn't even know how to slice the duck properly!

    Food is good. Service fast but basic, don't deserve any praise. Service of 12.5% is included. Don't understand why...

    Not recommended! Dumplings good but overall the menu does not even have enough of a dumpling menu to justify the name of this joint! Eat the dumplings if you must come here but forget the rest!

    bad service. the dough of the dumplings are too thick and break easily. the outer skin of the dumpling should be smooth and shiny, and thin enough that it won't break. not rough.

    Food was average and overpriced (spinach stir-fry was a whopping £6.50!). Service is slow and below average. Beware of the massive 15% service charge added to the total!!! It'd huge. Avoid the place!

    Average Chinese food at a pretty high price. Had to ask to be moved as we were sat next to the door into the pot cleaning area.

    I'd come here for the dumplings and then have my main course elsewhere.

    Nice food but the service is really disappointing. Especially when it's 15% of the bill.
