This board is where you write your name, and how many people you have in your group. Then the staff of the restaurant will call you when it’s your turn. This board is set up in front of the restaurant 30 minutes before their opening time.
Note that if you leave the vicinity of the restaurant you may lose your place. The best times to go would be writing your name on the board before the restaurant opens and after 10 p.m. Note that they may not have any dumplings left at 3 a.m. if it’s really busy.
They have a nice selection of beer so be sure to order some. Stout would be my recommendation.
