Great food, quick & friendly service. We love coming here with friends for a quick meal before going to the Hayes Theatre around the corner, they understand we need to be on our way quickly. Highly recommended.

The venue is funky with a buzz all of its own. Seating was outside the restaurant on the pavement and it proved to be a very Parisian experience. The Pork sliders were amazing, crispy crackling ! I ordered the house special, the prawn and scallop dumpling and washed it down with a Tsingtao beer. I would recommend this establishment.

My boyfriend and I had a great experience at D&B. The dumplings were delicious and the duck wraps were amazing and the service was polite and fast. We will definitely be returning to D&B, the prices are very reasonable as well.

A cosy friendly experience with high quality food, casual service and a wonderful range of beers. The highlight is the dumplings and Vietnamese bao and their delicious fillings. The pork and crackling bao were the best.

Great food at great prices and BYO what a bonus!! my favourite are the shallot pancakes but having said that, you can't go past the duck pancakes either. The eggplant and tofu wraps are also great!!

Really good small dumpling restaurant in Potts Point. Quick efficient service. Buns and Dumplings are lovely. Great ordering system. You fill out the order yourself and give it back to the staff. Good music and films on the walls via projector.
