What is it?
Happy Dumplings is a favourite of ours here at BYOB London. Located in the heart of Brixton Market it’s always buzzing no matter what day you turn up. It is an Asian BYOB restaurant that offers a mix of Chinese, Japanese, Thai and other eastern cuisines.
This isn’t a first date place – go when you’re comfortable as you’re not going to impress with the decor. Happy Dumplings is no frills but the portions are big and the food is delicious. Half of the place is in the market (under shelter) with the other half indoors. The lady that runs the place is a real character and brings extra personality to the place – she’ll pull out all the stops to ensure you and your mates are seated.

What should you get?
If there’s a group of you and you can’t decide what to get we’d recommend a rice or noodle dish to share (Singapore noodles is out go-to) as they’re BIG portions – then choose a selection of different dumplings, dim sum and/or rolls as there’s a ton on offer to try.
The menu is ridiculous, there’s literally something for everyone here, including every type of dumpling ever thought up.
Best from the Happy Dumplings menu
- Singapore noodles – Great as a sharing dish or as a main for one very hungry individual
- Steamed meat dim sum – Number 1 on their menu for a reason – a classic. There are tons of veggie dumpling options available too
- Tom Yum Noodle Soup – ideal winter warmer, this tasty soup will keep you full for days
Happy Dumplings is great go-to if you’re hungry and looking for somewhere for a catch-up, celebration and proper feed. The menu is ridiculous, there’s literally something for everyone here, including every type of dumpling ever thought up. There are a number of places to grab drinks from nearby so don’t worry if you haven’t come prepared.
