What's your fav?

Our's is the pork, shrimp and chives dumpling.
Green onion pancakes are good, as are the beef rolls.

Get the Spicy chicken pot. Loaded with flavor, it's pretty good.

We want to try their food after reading good review, but we are disappointed. The food is not that good. The place is not that clean, typical Chinese restaurant.

All their dumpling are very good and freshly made in house. The best is they don't add lot of salt (low-sodium). Good for the health and happy eaters. The noodle soup also good. If like beef pancake, you must try. and Lamb skewers. Service little slow... This place is like Hole in the wall...

We visited Dumpling Empire after finding it on Google on a windy day. The staff gave us a table right in front of the door. There were two tables inside and we asked for one of those to avoid the wind drift because one of my kids was already coughing. The staff told us the section was closed but there were other customers in there and it was two hours from closing.

Found the restaurant through Trip Advisor and was a bit reluctant especially regarding food reviews because what I and most people think is good seems to be very different... but in this case we agree. It located on a side street (just off the main drag) in South San Francisco. Warning: They have no A/C so if you go on a hot day (as we did) be prepared to ask for a lot of ice water. We ordered pork/green onion dumplings, chicken dumplings, spring rolls, cucumber salad and green onion pancakes. The dumplings are 12 each... we had plenty of takeout! Lunch was lovely... actually like the dumplings more the next day...the spring rolls are small and crispy, the green onion pancakes were delicious and the cucumber salad was light and very refreshing and it was all very, very affordable. Others were more adventurous as I looked around the small room and I would've like to have tried some soup but it was just too hot. Recommended.
