Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This popular Partick restaurant – older sister to recent opener Mamafubu in the Merchant City – offers a compact canteeny setting for enjoying dumplings, steamed buns, noodle soups and a selection of curry, chicken and other main dishes. It's frequently busy with eager diners, dropping in to taste the well-portioned, nicely priced food dished up by brisk staff who keep the turnover moving at pace. Dumplings are king here, whether boiled or fried up as 'pot stickers' for 50p more on the roughly £5 for ten, and they pack a tasty punch with fillings including pork and Chinese leaves or beef and carrot. They also do steamed buns, various noodle soups, and special dishes including an enjoyable special beef brisket curry. It may not be the place for lingering over a long lunch but it's a good option for those seeking a fast hit of nicely priced Chinese food.
