In terms of foods best enjoyed with someone special dumplings are king and I Love Dumplings is certainly a restaurant staking their claim to the throne. This is a great place to go if you (like us) love dumplings. Alternatively, I love… dumplings is also a good way to finish a sentence if you get caught up in the moment and begin to say “I love you”, only to see panic flash across the other persons eyes as the words begin to leave your mouth.
The menu is more extensive than you would expect from its dumpling-centric name, as they offer a range of food spanning many styles of Chinese cooking. But obviously the dumplings are the main game here and do not disappoint. During our visit we sampled the steamed prawn and fried pork, both staples of the dumpling repertoire and both served up faultlessly. Serving sizes of rice are extremely generous and can help turn this into a very cheap meal when shared. Bookings essential as it is invariably busy. Try to get a table towards the back, as this section feels a bit more secluded and romantic than the bustling long tables at the front. Overall dumplings make for a really simple, yet cute date idea.
