With off white, light wood and gold interiors, it's clean and functional; one of the most exciting restaurants in the area.

Dumpling and Noodle House

165-167 Victoria Street, Sydney,
Sydney, New South Wales 2011

Packed in like sardines, customers to this Potts Point stalwart know what they're here for, and it's certainly not the service or décor. You'll have to wait outside until you're briskly summoned indoors to perch on plastic chairs or rub shoulders with a random on a wooden bench. We wouldn't suggest coming as a group, this place is best enjoyed with your other-half over a plateful of mixed pan fried dumplings.
