Simple stripped-down Chinese canteen serving dumplings and other classic dishes.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
You can imagine lunch in Beijing is probably akin to the experience at this canteeny Chinese on Partick’s fringes – busy traffic outside, people packed in around bare tables and a frenetic turnaround of diners and dishes taking place. It’s chop-chop, steam steam and your order arrives on the table with the chop sticks barely out of the packet. Dumplings are, as the cutesy name explains, the mainstay here with a variety of fillings in the offing and a hefty plateful of ten of them for just £5, while steamed buns offer a pretty substantial meal for even less. Miso soup comes in hefty bowlfuls and regulars such as katsu curry and homemade char sui find a happy home in hungry mouths every lunchtime. A place offering frighteningly good value while not lacking in the quality department.
