Brixton Village has so many great restaurants, this does not disappoint. This restaurant felt like a street stall, intimate with views of the kitchen.

Excellent service, really good dumplings. These guys are making a killing here. £5 for 5 dumplings and £2 for Tsingtao pijo.

Great cold noodles. It's the best thing they do. The veg option comes with strands of dried bean curd which goes really well with the noodles and spicy sauce.

The dumplings get three stars. They are tasty but I have definitely had better elsewhere.more
