The Verdict

Dumpling fans listen up! Our fave dumpling joint, Sumthin Dumplin has joined Ponsonby’s strip with their epic new beer garden Midnight Gardener

Owner Shane Liu first opened his boutique eatery on O’Connell street serving up a variety of home-made dumplings which were in such hot demand he opened a second take away spot on Wellesley Street. 

Fast forward two years and Shane has teamed up with OG hospo heavyweights Phil Clark and Luke Dallow to open Midnight Gardener which is nestled into what used to be Ponsonby Road Garden Centre. Keeping with the heritage of the space, the bar has a very relaxed backyard vibe, where you can munch on some good grub and catch up with mates over a pint or two. 

Whether you’re wanting to grab a quick bite, or are after something to satisfy your late-night cravings, Midnight Gardener caters for all. It’s a trendy hotspot that is sure to be a hit amongst the locals.
