You can't go wrong with a big group and a banquet. We ate and drank for four hours and wound up paying less than $50 a head. The food is tasty and the atmosphere is reminiscent of the old Chinese restaurants of the 80s. Loud, colourful and full of life.

We have been to the Dumpling King dozens of times, but on Father's Day we tried the Set Menu A for the first time. It was the best set menu I have ever had at a Chinese restaurant, including plenty in China and Singapore.
Terrific and peppery West Lake Beef Soup, good dumplings (4 each), and the Mains, Meat Balls with Cabbage, Shan Dong Chicken, Sliced Beef in Szechuan sauce and Fried Calamari in Spicy Salt, were all A-Grade.
The service was not that snappy, because it was Father's Day, but that was OK. You have to expect that because the place was packed -- and that is because the food is so good.
And there was a lot of it; between four of us we took home enough food for another full meal each.
The DK has never let us down but now we have a problem; we might just get 'stuck' on the Set Menu!

we had the roasted duck with vegies and thin steamed bread. Service was prompt. The restaurant was well patronised.

Really average. Anyone that thinks the dumplings here a good really need to experience other places, many other much better dumpling places in Melbourne that are also much cheaper. Even had to ask for water after being there for 20minutes.
The main dishes we had were awful with really artificial flavouring used in them. We had to chase up food multiple times leaving guests at our table hungry and watching others eat. Not a great experience at all.

We went to this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed.
The dumplings were perfect, beautiful, refined flavour, and generous serves.
We also had a Peking duck, absolutely delicious! Cooked to perfection with warm wrappers. Would definitely come back!
