Why we love The China Kitchen
Hailed by locals as having the best dumplings in town, The China Kitchen is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a casual lunch or grab takeaways. After 10 years in the CBD, they now based in Papanui. Whatever you choose for your main, make sure you get a ½ dozen mix of dumplings for an entree so you can try each flavour – the dumplings are twice the size of typical ones and are packed with fresh flavours.
All of The China Kitchen’s dumplings are made fresh daily and are amazing – you should try them all. But if you had to pick one flavour, we’d say try the pork and chive. It’s a standout.
