Great service, staff were extremely friendly and the food was really good. The only thing I could say is the price of cocktails/drinks were a little on the expensive side but overall really enjoyed my time there

The food was delicious! My mini quibble was that the food came out a bit sporadically for our table and one dish was forgotten about. But overall we enjoyed our night!

Food and cocktails were beautiful - atmosphere was very funky with great music, just be prepared that at 10pm turns into a night club which is lots of fun but no desert time 💕

Great food and atmosphere - security and door man where a bit much, it kinda felt like we were a group of 20 somethings trying to get into a night club rather than a group of 40 somethings with a dinner reservation. Th e giant red stamp to enter was a bit over the top also. Music and food where A+

Food was great, drinks were okay (for a $24 espresso martini it sure did taste like the can/bottled cocktails you get on an aeroplane). There was no seating for groups under 6, so bar stools and very small tables were it. Good vibe but not for a sit down dinner and catch up.

The staff at Drunken Dumpling are all amazing! Always so helpful - one of my friends is celiac and they made sure to explain how everything was cooked so she knew what she could safely eat. The cocktails are *chefs kiss* perfection and you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. It’s such a great space; a real game changer for the area!!

Absolutely loved the drunken dumpling! The music was a tad loud so it can be a bit hard if you’re wanting to talk - but if you’re heading out for a classy night of cocktails, good vibes and Rnb classics you’ve hit the spot. My new favourite bar on Ocean street and much nicer than a lot of other places I’ve been too. The range of modern Asian food was just fantastic and the cocktails unique and tasteful.

They didn't have a record of our reservation for 5.30pm, but found a table quickly then told us that we only had 10 minutes left after we had been there for 50 minutes. The seating time was supposed to be 1 hr 30 mins but they must of given us a table that was booked for 5pm & I didn't realise till we left in such a rush, because they said there next guests had arrived, that we had only been there for 1 hour. Also we ordered the dumplings but received the fried rice on it's own first which we had almost finished before we got the dumplings. Other than that the food was lovely the cocktails were only $10 bargain.

We had a 6.30pm booking, the music was very loud and we could not hear each other speak. I think this is OK a bit later in the evening but it was a lot to take in this early.
The food was great but very small portions. The drinks are very expensive.

This was not the place for us however, the service was absolutely amazing.

It was too loud, uncomfortable seating (a glowing bar table/podium as a table) and the food was not good and the menu was only available on your phone which we found very anti-social.

It’s big city prices without the quality. Not the dumpling house we expected.

In saying that, the bar looked amazing and the cocktails also looked great - we chose a beer and a cider. The price point turned us off those a bit.

I really can’t commend the staff enough though. They were so professional and polite. A credit to the place in my opinion.

Wouldn’t go there for dinning as food is expensive and not meals. More of a cocktail/party scene.

We really enjoyed our meal and drinks At the drunken dumpling. The service was noteworthy as the staff checked on us often and were very friendly. Love the atmosphere there and can’t wait to go back for drinks at night.

Such a funky little find! The service really is above and beyond, and the food is amazing! The biggest drawback for us was the tiny table we were seated on, barely enough size for two small plates, drinks and wallets. The other catch was the music was incredibly loud and we couldnt really hear each other talk. Also slightly overpriced drinks. Worth the visit for the food but if you're after a quieter / calmer spot with space maybe reconsider. If youre after a late night visit with the girls, to dance and enjoy some fun cocktails then definately check it out
