Came here for the dim sum. Located in a strip mall of sorts, if the parking lot is full there is plenty of residential parking around the corner. Arriving rather early-ish like 10:30 or so, there wasn't a wait - in fact it was pretty empty on a Friday morning. I don't know my dim sum names, but I know... More

Visited the Dai Tung at 9:15 AM in the morning for breakfast and that too to eat Dim Sum. WOW I thought I was crazy but my Chinese friend insisted that we should go there and that we would be pleasantly pleased with the food. Since I love to try out new places and am pretty adventurous with my taste... More

This is a busy place but they always manage to accommodate us. We come here for the honey garlic spareribs, we love them. They tasted slightly different on our recent visit. Maybe a one time thing I hope. I would hate to have to start looking for another favorite place! We always have enjoyed the food here and we like... More

The food was bland, greasy and undercooked, the service was horrid (long waits between courses) and the restaurant exhaust fan is way too loud. There are far better restaurants in the neighbourhood - avoid this one.

We came back today and we notice the menu was different. They don't push the cart out doe dim sum anymore. When the food came out they dont look the same and it... More

I have had the joy of eating here for over 10 years. Not pretentious, delicious hot food. Good working class Chinese families know where to eat - here.From a blue collar patron, thanks.

Having just read the comments regarding Dai Tung, I have a couple of things to say...Was there yesterday with a friend treating me for dim sum...they do not have cart service any longer. I really liked the carts, but I do have this to say...when you order something from the menu, it is always HOT! No asking to re-warm dishes!... More

I have been going to Dai Tung since a friend told me about it years ago! There are other places that I have gone to...starting with China Town (which is like a ghost town now compared to what it once was...I guess everyone has packed up and moved to Richmond) and others that are closer to where I live, but...
