Little Red Dumpling

Little Red Dumpling is a lively and colourful dumpling bar tucked away in the basement of the century old heritage-listed church that is also home to The Pancake Manor in Brisbane CBD.

Those who remember going out in Brisbane in the 70's and 80's will recall that the basement was a late night bar extension of the Pancake Manor and now the split-level underground space has been brought back to life with red Chinese lanterns, cosy booths and an open bar kitchen running along once side.
