A Glance of The Dumpling Tree


The Dumpling Tree is a Chinese restaurant specialises in popular regional food. Most recipes comes from my home town. Our concept is to serve the fresh, honest, and hearty food the native Chinese people really enjoy. All the dishes are made from fresh raw materials from scratch. Our dumplings and rice noodle soups are a healthy and refreshing change from the dishes people associate Chinese food with.

  • As people are more and more educated about what we eat. We are more concerned about the source of each ingredient, how the food is handled, any harmful preservatives added, the freshness and nutritional goodness, the texture and taste. The Dumpling Tree is the product of such awareness. Our dishes have the following characteristics which are appreciated by our customers:
  • Authentic tasty dishes such as Cross Bridge Rice Noodles, Warriors' baps, the dirty dozen, purr louder.
  • Our food is mainly boiled and steamed as if it is cooked at home.
