Great food. Great location.
Pity we couldn’t have the cheeseburger dumplings but hopefully next time.
Really hip low key place to enjoy good food at a reasonable price.
Delicious dumplings. Friendly staff. But background music way to loud. Staff couldnt her at me a lot had to keep repeating myself. But highly recommend them
Something a little different ... worth a try but hard to get waiter’s attention at times.
Delicious food with loads of variety and very well priced! This is the 3rd time I've brought a different group of friends here and will be back again soon! The staff are friendly and attentive and I can't fault this place. Thank you :)
Amazing. Dumplings great
Quirky is the best word to describe Drumplings. From the setting, to the service and finally to the East meets the West dumplings.
Great spot to enjoy FABULOUS dumplings , attentive and professional service. Thanks to all on the Team....Loved it!!!!
Loved everything expect the staff member that served us (blonde female). She was rude, slow, and acted as though we were annoying her every time we wanted to order more food or drinks. Very off putting.
There was a male that helped us towards the end tho who was lovely and made up for the lack of respect from the first server.
Food was pretty good. They were busy, and we were just pointed to our booked table.
Once the food was dropped, there was no additional service.
Great place for dumplings. Very creative menu. Funky new dumplings as well as the old traditional. Waitstaff was very helpful, Nice atmosphere.
Delicious! We were all very happy and have said drumplings will be our go-to place for catch up!
Fun place for a casual meal with friends. Interesting ideas for dumplings and reasonable prices. Catered well for us over the evening.
Visited Drumlpings on a date and it did not disappoint! Food was yum, drinks were good. We went on a Sunday afternoon and while there were a few people eating as well it wasn’t too busy or loud, perfect for a chill day!
Love Drumplings! Delicious, quirky offerings, great service and brilliant booking system. Order the Cheeseburger and Xiao Long Bao dumplings - you won’t regret it! Accomodates small or larger groups. Among my top Melbourne restaurant picks.
Service was shocking. The waitress was horribly rude. She was blonde with a strange accent and was condescending- I actually asked her what her problem was.
Food was average- all the dumplings stick together?
Very disappointing that the cheeseburger dumpling and the pepperoni pizza dumplings were finished by the time we got there for dinner. They were the main 2 I wanted to sample.
Average service, dumplings were ok, not great. Good venue.
Food took a long time to come out. Seemed like it was a hit understaffed. Was hard to get the waiters attention. Food was good.
I’ll be back again and again and again. Fun and delicious 😋
Interesting menu, fantastic service! Would recommend if you’re after something different
Great to experiment all the different dumplings! But tables are very small so you can barely fit anything on them
A really fun place lace to go in Melbourne for something a bit quirky.
Drumplings is such a fantastic restaurant, the staff are so friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere is lively and energetic. My partner and I come here regularly for date night and are never disappointed. Keep up the good work Drumplings 🤤
When we called to make a booking they said we couldn’t book because they were fully
Booked to try as a walk in. When we got there the restaurant was empty. Staff weren’t very welcoming
Signature dumplings are sensational! You'll have a feast for a very good price
Great experience trying all the varieties of dumplings. Would be great for a date or with friends. The cheeseburger dumplings were our favourite
The first thing I noticed was the excellent, friendly and prompt service! The food was amazing too. We will definitely come back! Thanks for making our dining experience an enjoyable one.
We were a group of seven across three generations, visiting from Queensland. The menu had great choices to satisfy even our fussiest eater. The staff were wonderful and the wait was negligible. Totally happy with our choice to dine at DRUMPLINGS.
Amazing food! Must try the rending and cheeseburger dumplings!
Interesting dumplings - not the best I’ve had. Service was slow.
Amazing food and incredible service! Will be back!
We went for a work dinner (12 people) and ordered nearly everything off of the menu to share. Overall great vibe, the place looks great, but more importantly the dumplings were amazing!!
Drumplings is a great twist on traditional dumplings. Everything was absolutely delicious and the service was good. Great for a summer time quick bite with a cocktail.
Interesting concepts but poorly executed with the signature item the dumpling lacking refinement in the skin and structure.
I really enjoyed food and mood everything. One of waitsatff, i am not sure i think she is in charge of there, gave us very good service in my friend birthday. Absolutely will be back and recommend here!
After hearing about Drumplings from work colleagues and checking out the interesting dumpling menu I booked a catch up with my bestie on a Wed night around 5pm. I loved the idea of cheeseburger and meat pie flavoured dumplings but my bestie was not so keen so we stuck to the chicken laksa and beef randang dumplings instead, as well as the paleo pearl dumplings and couldn’t go past the potato wrapped crispy prawns. We topped it off with a nice bottle of Pinot Noir and the apple crumble dumplings. I would say this is just enough food for two. The flavours were ok, a bit bland for us, but we are real saucies so it might be “just right” for most! Our stand out faves were the paleo dumplings and the apple crumble dumplings. The vibe and decor of this place is really great! Not your average sticky-tabled dumpling house. Could definitely see us having many a drink and a dumpling here on a Friday night! Staff were really attentive and happy to chat while you wait for your party. The only reason I haven’t given 5 stars is that I noticed my bowl wasn’t particularly clean and our wine glasses were a bit marked. But other than that - definitely recommend!!!
Absolutely amazing. Food was sensational and the staff were exceptional. Highly recommend
The staff and service were fantastic. We came for the signature dumplings - Mac and cheese and pizza then apple crumble to finish.
The Mac and cheese dumplings wrapper felt underdone or maybe cheesy in the wrong way.. pizza was similar but still strange without being a good type of strange.
The apple crumble filling was lovely but didn’t suit the dumpling wrapper at all.
Espresso martinis were quite bitter.
It’s a shame cause the staff are truely fantastic and attentive and the ambiance is great
Really really good food. Love their take on traditional Asian cuisine as well as how they added in their own little twist. Service was on point, never had to wait for someone at all. Perfect night and was a lovely birthday dinner for my partner
