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.
My new favourite place to bring a friend. Interesting/unique menu but still super delicious. I loved the xiao long bao. Decor is amazing with the plants and graffiti, and service is wonderful. Waitress was always smiling and seemed eager to assist, she even opened the door as I was standing outside the restaurant.
A little bit pricey for the small portions but I would say worth it for a delicious special meal with someone. Love it!!
What sensational food, and amazing cocktails to boot!
Food lacked depth of flavour and dumplings were overpriced and small
Great food and outstanding service. We had a bigger group and they made the experience so great.
The dumplings were that soggy we couldn’t pick them up with chopsticks and they were very water logged
Food was really good, although the customer service was horrible. The staff were not approachable at all.
If you want to wait 40min when its not even busy for small dumplings that you devour in 5 mins and still leave hungry, go ahead
Amazing food and the owner was so accommodating and lovely!!! You HAVE to try the Cheeseburger Dumplings as they are to die for!! They literally taste like you're eating a burger. YUM! The only downside is that you can spend $$$ on dinner and still leave hungry. Just something to keep in mind! But I will have to try the cocktails next time as they looked fab!
Worth giving it a try if you want to try something different. The mac and cheese dumplings were actually quite tasty. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The only let down was having to ask for extra cutlery, then sharing plates then sauces.
We shared cheeseburger dumplings, Camembert dumplings & prawn dumplings as well as apple crumble dumplings & lemon meringue dumplings & they were fabulous! All the dumplings were so light & flavoursome. Will definitely be back!!
Great food, Great service, Great atmosphere, Great price. 100% will be back & will recommend to others
Great Service + Great Food! What more can i say! Caught up with a friend from out of town and could not of thought of a better restaurant to showcase Melbourne and its food culture!
Loved this place! Great vibe, amazing food and something “different”. It really had Melbs creative flare. I was proud to bring my family there from Queensland. Absolutely mouth-watering and tasted exactly like the descriptions explained. Even the traditional food was excellent! My only slight slight complaint was the music was a bit too loud (even for me!) thanks Drumplings, I will return!
Drumplings is our favorite place by far! Cannot recommend enough!
Overall excellent. Waitress did spill half of my cocktail on my foot resulting in a cold, sticky walk home. No big deal but next time would appreciate an offer to top up the drink because cocktails are expensive and mine was half gone.
Bit of a novelty but delicious food and drinks! Great to see someone trying something fun and new!
Comfortable environment in a close but not cramped setting. Trendy take on a traditional favourite. Great for sharing with as little or as many people as you want (or if like me, want to eat it all without sharing).
Traditional dumplings are available, but the signature dumplings are really a strangely wonderful experience. You like mac 'n' cheese? Have it in a dumpling! You're a beef rendang kinda person but don't want to bother with meddlesome rice or roti? Drumplings have the perfect signature dumpling for you!
One thing I haven't tried but definitely want to return for is the dessert dumplings! Yes... DESSERT DUMPLINGS!
I will definitely be returning, even with my self-confessed "dumpling snob" friends, whom have been converted!
Very cool vibe. Loved the interior design. Amazing food (share plate style) and cocktails. Will definitely be back!!
This is a fave of mine as it's always delicious and a bit quirky. Lots of great options for just a quick snack and drinks or have a full assortment of loads of food. Has not disappointed anyone I have taken there! My fave dumplings are the cheeseburger and macaroni - sooo good!
Loved the diff combinations. The bao are amazing, so were the rendang dumplings
Drumplings is always a delight. Please bring the white rice back on the menu though!
The specialty dumplings are great, the usual fare a bit bland & overpriced. The owner hovers over the staff too much, didnt feel as welcoming as previous visits.
Bottomless brunch - food was not great and not enough to fill us up. Had to go else where and buy more food after.
i went on a Saturday for the bottomless brunch, the drinks and food were good but the service was bad. It was busy i understand but the waitresses never really checked on us we had to kept asking for more drinks. they then forgot the dessert part of the package which three of my friends were unhappy with. after they left they then bought it out which was pointless as they had left. they had reduced the bill which was nice. i would go back on a Sunday or Thursday when it wouldn't be as busy and definitely check out their other food and cocktails.
We loved the food and the service was fantastic, however the portion sizes left a lot to be desired as they were tiny. The taste can not be faulted however.
Our waitress was amazing but we had drinks that didn’t turn up but we’re still charged to our bill. And they wouldn’t be flexible with anything on the menu. They definitely are not a family friendly restaurant. Dumplings were interesting but a bit of a gimmick.
Horrendous service from sarcastic, negative, unhelpful staff. Shame because the food and decor was great, but definitely won't be going back or recommending it to anyone.
The nutella dumplings were a surprisingly delicious end to a fantastic meal.
