Further Information

Up in the top end of the city centre, close to Melbourne Central train station on A’Beckett Street, lies one of the finest Chinese restaurants around. I Love Dumplings isn’t a huge restaurant – though they have four locations around the city – but what they lack in size they make up for in flavour, with a range of dim sum and dumplings that is the envy of many a Melbourne restaurant. They offer dumplings steamed, boiled and fried, filled with meat, seafood and vegetables, and a selection of other Chinese favourites.

Chinese food is famed for its diversity of cooking styles and ingredients, and at I Love Dumplings on A’Beckett Street – near the cross with Elizabeth Street – you can experience a whole range of them. From Sichuanese spicy specialities, to Lioning-style stews and, of course, plenty of dumpling options, the menu offers something for everyone to enjoy. Book a table now and enjoy a great start to your evening in Melbourne city centre.

This is a vey good restaurant for the busy office worker. The staff ensure their team efforts translate to a service that is efficient and effective. The menu offers many delicious options that are affordable and of generous portions. I've never been disappointed and highly recommend eating here. Only down side is that there is no bill splitting which can be a bother for groups and there is usually a wait to get a table at peak times but this merely proves how popular and successful this venue is!

The lamb and beef dumplings are amazing! Just be careful because they are very juicy and the wrong bite means you'll be smelling like dumplings all day! Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Quick service, very helpful, always tasty.

The food was fantastic & reasonably priced and my friend and I didn't feel rushed or pressured to hurry up & leave. Just make sure you book to ensure you get a table!

Excellent price and good selection of food, not only dumplings (although chicken and prawn in chilli oil is fantastic), and food is delivered quickly. Atmosphere is a bit lacking, but for the price, can't complain.

Cheap and tasty, nothing went wrong with ordering, gave us time to choose the food and chat afterwards. For a $12 meal, absolutely nothing to complain about.

Dumplings were really yummy but they lost points not having a dessert even though it was on the menu. Venue wasn't that busy either and they ran out of one type of dumpling.

Good food. Busy atmosphere. Order entrees first and wait for them to arrive before you order your mains - unless you want everything at once.

Overall the food was good for the price but the music was too loud. I think music over lunch needs to be toned down and more relaxing, not loud bar music.

Chicken and prawn dumplings in chilli oil was delicious, but the steamed prawn and fried pork dumplings had too much skin and not enough filling.

Flies everywhere we asked to be moved. Not very friendly staff. Dirty cutlery. Website picture of the venue does not match the actual venue. Could not wait to get out of there !
