So I wanted to try another new dish, and I decided to try this as it sounded nice.

For me this was just a so so dish, the chicken for me was a little dry but the sauce was very nice.

For me this was ok, but I wouldn’t have it again mostly due to the chicken for me was just a little to dry.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 4
Value for Money : 4

Overall

A balanced visit today of some really good chicken with some ok chicken.

I cant wait to have the Yam Yam Chicken Wings again.

Shocker am back again, but why not every time I have been its always been a really enjoyable night and enjoyable food….so lets see will it continue when I try more new items.

The Food…

Jijimi Seafood 5.95
Pan fried vegetable pancake, spring onion, soy sauce

IMG_4615

I was very undecided what to order tonight, I wanted to order a few favs but then again it wouldn’t be much of a review since you could easily see what I thought in a previous one…..so I took one for the team and tried another new dish.

On arrival this looked very good so it was time to tuck in…

For me this was so so, it didn’t have too much flavour so the soy sauce was needed. If you are looking for a nice light dish, this is perfect but for me I need something with a little more flavour.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3

Thai Prawn Crackers £2.95

IMG_4636

I wanted a little side dish, so I ordered these. The last time I had these were at a Chinese restaurant in town, so I thought I wonder how they are here.

These were very nice, just as good as the ones I have had at the Chinese restaurant. If you like the normal style prawn crackers, give these a shot and am sure these will be your new favourites.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Overall

In short a solid 5 out of 5 again!

2nd Visit to Dumpling Monkey (West End, Glasgow) : Review

IMG_3779121 Dumbarton Road
Glasgow G11 6PR, UK

V: 11th November 2017      T:  0141 583 8300  W: www.dumplingmonkey.com

Child Friendly: Yes      Accepts: Cash & Card


After my first visit here, which for me was not that good to be honest. I had heard from another blogger that the dumplings here are amazing….so I thought lets give here a second chance.

Again just like the last time we were shown to our seat, and told that we had to order at the counter.

Tonight I ordered one style of dumplings and my girlfriend ordered another so we could try two styles.

The Food…

Special Dumplings £6.00
Contains pork, King prawns & Chives

IMG_4439

On arrival this looked OK, and I was very interested at how these were going to taste.

For me anyway, these were not that tasty even with the added sauce it still didn’t do much for me.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 2
Presentation : 4

Vegetarian Dumplings £6.00
Contains celery, dried tofu & shitake mushrooms

IMG_4440

This was the one that my girlfriend ordered so I tried a few.

Again very dissapointed this had less flavour than mine…

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 2
Presentation : 4

Overall

I don’t say this very often but for me this will be my last visit to Dumpling Monkey, both visits just didn’t do anything for me.

There are other similar places near Dumpling Monkey, similar costs that pack a much much better flavour.

Sorry guys!
