The iconic dim sum is to Cantonese culture, what the traditional Sunday Roast is to the UK.
At Dumplings’ Legend, they greatly respect this tiny parcel of yummy goodness, sticking to traditional methods but adding a twist. Spicy pork and spicy crayfish may not be new to you – perhaps you’ve had it with rice or in a soup, but in a soup dumpling known in Chinese as a Xiaolongbao? We thought not. That’s because these guys are the first to come up with this clever filling idea and it’s gone down a treat.
But that’s just two of nine options you’ll find on their taste-tingling menu, plus an impressive 47 variations of the much-loved dim sum. All made in their open-plan, glass-walled, kitchen before your very eyes.
In fact, their dumplings are so loved that they make an incredible 8,000 every day – if you were to stack them up, The Shard would cower in their towering shadow.
So, whatever shape and size you’re into, you can bet your bottom dumpling there’ll be something just right for you.

Staff was kind to let us in earlier than booking, food was served fast and piping hot. Service was really good and food was super yummy. An Asian is saying this by the way. Value for money too!

Great food and reasonably priced but very very very busy with staff constantly running around! Not bad if you're just looking for a quick eat but not a full sit down dinner occasion

Despite having a booking they made us wait 30 minutes in a line to get in behind people who hadn't made bookings. However, once we got in, we really enjoyed the food! We will be back, only because of the food but hope they will improve their service for people with bookings in future!
