Good Dim Sum

This is a very good place for dim sum, and lots of parking. The service is not the best, but their food is very good. Even dinner is good to go. We go at least once a month for dim sum if not more. The price is very reasonable too.

I am very disappointed, you used to be my favorite place to order from but tonight's meal was horrible, the wor wonton was absolutely tasteless from the broth to the won ton. The 3 kinds of salt & pepper seafood was devoid of any salt and pepper. Add to this the driver who arrives without a receipt and a $6.00... More

After our local Chinese joint closed we searched in vain for a decent replacement, i came across a review of Golden Central in the Calgary Sun by Louis B. Hobson, we decided to give it a try for my birthday, & were overjoyed at our discovery! That was 6 years ago & we have never been to another Chinese restaurant... More

This restaurant is not a bad one especially when it's situated at a convenient location with some parking. There are more than 100 menu varieties including Southern Chinese dim sum, rice and noodles. The best about this restaurant is that the dim sum items are freshly steamed to order. The quantity and quality are good. There're always long line ups... More

This is my fave dim sum place in the city. Arrive before 11am and you will not have to wait for a table. Good selection, good portion sizes and all very fresh tasting. Dinner is also very good here. Take away is also good!

Possibly the best Dim Sum in Calgary. Outside of the core China Town, this is the best and cheapest where most dishes still run around $4.50 whereas other places in North Calgary have recently taken huge price hikes! Beat the crowd by getting there by 10am, lots of parking. When busy, service is a little slow which is understandable.

We follow ratings on Google Earth and we were not disappointed by this place. Not even an hour later from getting off our plane, we were sitting down to a delicious Dim Sum dinner. We ordered a few of our favourites like, dumplings, salt and pepper squid, sticky rice with pork and steamed stuff eggplants but the surprises were the... More

We went for Dim Sum and the lady that works there, may be the owner, is very rude and abrupt. Unbelievable! She probably just has some serious personal issues, but bringing them to the workplace is just unacceptable, and she should not be working there.The overall service is very slow and the rest of the staff are not really attentive...

Good food and great price for Dim Sum. But they are usually understaffed and thus do expect to wait a bit for the food during busy times. If you want a seat during Sat or Sun, do go there early (around 11am) or else do expect a long wait. The place is located right around McKnight blvd and Center St,... More

Like another contributor, we happened upon this from our hotel, as there are only 2 Dim Sum restaurants that we could find listed for NE Calgary. We first went about 1 pm on a Sunday, and it was obvious that our party of two would not get in for over an hour at least. Many large families of Asian descent... More
