© 2017 my neighbours the dumplings

My Neighbours the Dumplings is a family run Dumpling house & Sake bar in Hackney, London. Where every day our team of dumpling rollers lead by Master Dumpling Chef Carol Lee, hand roll the freshest dumplings you'll find. Head Chef Trung Nguyen works alongside Carol constantly working on and creatively developing the menu, choosing only quality ingredients for all our dishes and making everything fresh on site. All our meat is free range and our fish is sustainably sourced. 

Although we are not strictly a Dim Sum restaurant, we follow the Dim Sum style of eating; lots of small dishes that are shared amongst the table. We prefer the term Dumpling House, because it gives us the freedom to serve exactly what we want! With dumplings at the centre of the menu, we're always working on dishes to compliment them, anything from the more traditional to the food we just love; just as long as it's tasty!

Matilda's Sake bar

Matilda's Sake bar @my neighbours the dumplings 

Hidden deep beneath the restaurant floor you'll discover Matilda's, our tip of the hat to the good old backstreet basement bar where we host live music nights along with the odd friend popping in to play some records. At Matilda's we offer a large range of some of the best sake specially selected and imported from independent sake breweries across Japan. Luckily for us, Ollie from Tengu Sake has made it his life mission to bring the best sake to the UK. Here at Matilda's we have loads of them for you to try along with a great cocktail menu that's constantly evolving. Try our signature Sake Old Fashioned, a blend of Japanese whiskey and American bourbon stirred with Aperitif aged sake and orange bitters, courtesy of big D and the bar team.


If you're interested in playing some music at Matilda's please contact us at music@myneighboursthedumplings.com
