Why did we dine here? – Kingdom of Dumpling is a Chinese restaurant specializing in dumplings. Being large dumpling fans, we decided to finally give this place a try. There are few restaurants with this variety of dumplings on the menu.

Insider Tip – The restaurant is tiny, so come early or else you’ll have to wait. To go might be a good option.

Cuisine – Chinese
Location – San Francisco, Sunset District
Opened – 2008

Service – Kingdom of Dumpling had reasonable service for such a tiny establishment.
Verdict – Kingdom of Dumpling serves up solid dumplings in pretty marginal conditions. San Tung serves up slightly better dumplings in a much nicer location.

Signature Dishes – Dumplings.

Kingdom of Dumpling’s Menu includes a variety of starters as well as 19 different types of dumplings. They also have typical Mandarin style Chinese dishes.

Picks:

Kingdom of Dumpling San Francisco Pork Dumplings

Pork Dumpling with Napa Cabbage ($5.95 for 12) were above-average dumplings filled with tender filling.

Kingdom of Dumpling San Francisco Lamb Dumplings

Lamb Dumpling with Chinese Vegetables ($6.95 for 12) were also decent, but a little lacking in flavor.

Kingdom of Dumpling San Francisco Beef Pancake

Beef Pancake ($5.95) was a good sized and not too greasy pancake.

Kingdom of Dumpling San Francisco Green Beans

Garlic String Beans ($6.95) were a solid rendition of the classic dish.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)
None

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
Hot and Sour soup was not on the menu and probably shouldn’t be on the menu. Spicy and lacking flavor.
