    Always great dumplings - v tasty and fresh. Perhaps music not so loud so that it's easier to have a conversation.

    Tired a few different dishes and all were very good. Menu is changing to add extras which is great. Original dumplings still first class.

    Good food .. although low in selection. Music a bit too loud for my liking. Can't have a dinner conversation without shouting across the table

    First time at Work In Progress and we will be back. Food was good, service was great and the atmosphere is just what one expects for a inner city restaurant.

    I often come here cos the dim sum is excellent - better than most nearby yum cha places. What turns me off is the noise- can hardly hear each other talking. Enjoy the food but feel so relieved to get out after. Might have to look at some noise filtering.

    We have been here a few times over the past two years. Not one but two orders of the xaio long nap were hard in consistency, think dough. The calamari was average at best and we were equally disappointed by sneezing as simple as the veggie spring rolls. The staff were lovely and a good atmosphere. Ufortunately we will not be returning soon.

    Work in progress is an interesting place. The funky look and feel and the yummy dumplings made it more memorable for me. The staff is very friendly and they have suggested some yummy food. Would love to visit WIP again.
