This welcoming little restaurant is clearly aimed at the waiguo set, with English menus and a gregarious English-speaking owner, but the place gets its fair share of locals as well. There's a wide range of homestyle dishes, as well as handmade dumplings, which you can get boiled or fried. We especially like the beef and parsley ones, fried, of course.
Very friendly and welcoming little restaurant with tasty "homestyle" dishes and a hearty selection of yummy, hand-made dumplings--regular or fried.

What a find this place is! It is the best dumplings restaurant in China --puts jintaifung to shame. Where else can you get fried dumplings with meat and CHEESE. Everything we ordered was delicious (pork and carrots guotie, chicken cheese and corn guotie, and fried spicy green beans) . Not only are the dumplings out of this world, they make incredible Chinese dishes as well. Everything you'd ever want is on the menu. The bill was extremely reasonable. Mr.Shi is very friendly and personable. The service is fast. All around, an incredible place.

Great dumplings. Got fried beef & chives and fried egg & spinach. The fried egg & spinach were alright, but the fried beef & chives were amazing. Got some other non-dumpling dishes just to try and the staff forgot about em. Eventually remembered without us saying anything. The sweet and sour pork was pretty soggy, but the spicy potato dish was good.
Overall best to stick to dumplings and beer.

With winter coming on, it’s time to suss out your favorite dumpling joint and order up some steaming plates of jiaozi. If you’re in the Gulou area, check out Mr. Shi’s. It’s clearly aimed at the waiguo set, with English menus and a gregarious and friendly English-speaking owner, but the place is often filled with locals—a good sign when it comes to jiaozi shops. We found the sour and spicy vegetable salad (¥15) to be a great appetizer, washed down with ¥5 bottles of Yanjing. Mr. Shi’s has a wide variety of dumplings that you can order boiled, or pan-fried. We especially liked the beef and parsley (¥24), fried, of course.
