This is one of the most recognisable dumpling haunts in Haymarket. Many would attribute this to the plastic grapes drooling from the ceiling, but we reckon it's got something to do with this place's authenticity. As classic as you'll get, Chinese Noodle Restaurant serves up fast and almost unchallengeable pork and cabbage dumplings ($8.80 for 12), while the miniature maitre d' flits around giving commands to her staff.

The handmade Xinjiang stir-fried noodles with beef ($9.50) are a definite must, too; the product of the noodle aficionado on display behind a glass window who slaps and wraps the fresh dough for your viewing pleasure.
