I am here at Wanchai, with my wife, for a Saturday lunch at Kings Dumpling. We did not eat just dumplings but other items as well, noted below.
We browsed through the menu and ticked off items on the order sheet.
The first item to arrive were the dumplings, the Siu Lung Bao, which were really good. They had 'hairy crab' roe (which is a local, seasonal dish) in them, giving them an extra nice flavour.

The plate on the right of the picture is Chicken noodles salad (not the literal translation). This cold dish comprises strips of chicken mixed with translucent rice noodles and cucumber slices topped with a peanut sauce. It was light and refreshing.

We had a fourth dish, which was Wonton. There were about seven of these vegetable and meat dumplings, which were served in a light, clear soup and ended the meal nicely and sufficiently.
Food was in general good and plentiful enough for lunch, and not too pricey. It is a clean and modern looking restaurant, with efficient staff. Whilst the restaurant was not packed for a Saturday lunch, they had already run out of one of the items we initially wanted, which was odd though.
Plus, one can tell Christmas is coming soon as the festive songs made up the Muzak in this place.
Total Bill: $222, about £9.50 a head.
I ate: All of the above.
I drank: Chinese Tea, variety unknown.
I wore: Black Polo Shirt.
