Dickson Dumpling House, Dickson, Canberra – Chinese – A Canberra World Food Delight
I love this place. It’s busy, full of people enjoying the food and each other’s company with staff buzzing around delivering large plates of hot tasty looking food. It has attitude, confidence and knows that it does a great job at delivering consistently popular food.
It can be noisy, so it’s good to try to get a table next to a wall and to consider going during the week when it’s quieter.

Suggested Menu for six:
Two serves fried prawn and pumpkin dumplings $12 (I love these) One serve combination dumplings (chicken and veg and pork individually) about $12
Two serves Chicken San Choy Bow (4 per serve) about $16
One serve Shredded Dry Chilli Beef $15 (fantastic)
One serve Salt and pepper squid $15 (excellent)
Three serves rice $3 per serve Corkage $3 per bottle
Total cost of food $91 ($15 each)
For just two people, one dish can be enough. This Chicken Chow Mein (while perhaps not the most interesting choice) is a real bargain at $13.80 and large enough for two. A good choice for kids as flavours are mild and noodles familiar.
