    All dumplings, all the time. Can be a belly-filling one-trick pony, but they know what they're doing and they do it really well! Ask for sauces to round out the flavour excursion

    Do not know what the people are complaiing about-for me B9 were the best dumplings I have ever tried. Loved the shabby place and the ladies makig dumings before our very eyes.

    The dumplings here are so good it should be called Heaven's dumplings. The staff and cooks were so friendly - great great place.

    It was ok. Nothing mind blowing. Lots of food for cheap. Good for students or late l dining after a night out on the town. Best Dim Sum in my opinion is at Cha Lau (formerly Cha Liu). #Amazing!

    Beef and onion roll, melon shrimp and pork pan fried, pork and green onion steamed. Best thing on Spadina aside from the ruler; Kings noodle house

    A little over-hyped, but I'll tell you what I loved: the lamb shumai. VERY yummy. Also the dumpling soup (now $2, not $1).

    One of TO’s best kept secrets. What makes the place so great is its simplicity. No razzle-dazzle. No elaborate menus. Just great food, made right before your eyes. Try the green onion pancake.

    Take frugality to the next level with a large bowl of Northern-style wonton soup for $3.50. And try the tomato-egg soup and zhajiang mian (Chinese spaghetti) for an undiluted hit of the old country.

    You can see the chefs making the dumplings and that is very cool. As for the food it was so-so. The lamb shumai was surprising and neat, while the bbq pork buns were dry and low on flavor.

    Ok, I admit that I am rather picky about dumplings. The skin of dumplings is what matters! And at Mother's Dumplings, the skin is just not right! My expectations were high, thus my disappointment!

    I had the beanpaste noodles and spring onion pancake and thought it was just mediocre. :/ Noodles were a little overcooked,pancakes were not flaky and crispy. Should've tried the dumplings instead.
