When you can’t decide what to eat for dinner, Chinese food is always a great go-to — especially since Davis offers a plethora of options. However, UC Davis students have made their preference known.

Located in the heart of downtown on E Street, this year’s winner of the best Chinese restaurant of Davis is The Dumpling House, also popularly known among Davis locals as D-House, Dump House and more.

Owned by manager Linda Liu, The Dumpling House opened in 2010 and has since been a fan favorite. Liu has been in the restaurant business for over 30 years and successfully created a laidback atmosphere with quality customer service and delicious food in her Davis location.

The Dumpling House is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Some customer favorites include the hand-wrapped dumplings, potstickers, wontons and even London-style fish and chips.

Jamie Fukui, a fourth-year managerial economics major (and self-proclaimed Chinese food aficionado), claims that eating at The Dumpling House is a euphoric experience.

“I’ve never known true happiness until eating my first dumpling [at The Dumpling House],” Fukui said. “I absolutely love it.”
