Was there for my Birthday and the Duck is the specialty there. We liked the Duck but the other 2 dishes were a disaster and over priced. We had a seafood tofu dish that was so embarrassingly bad we asked the waiter to come over which was a mistake, we should have asked the Manager to come over. The waiter... More

June 24, 2015 I have been to this restaurant at least twice and that was 6 years ago. The dim sum is expensive but really good. There is a Red Star Seafood Restaurant in Richmond at the Radisson hotel. Across from Aberdeen Centre. It is good as well , I have had dim sum here at one time. Another place... More

We got there when it opened and within about 40mins this large restaurant was almost full - mainly Chinese which is a good sign. Coming from the UK we are used to dim sum dumplings being of bite size portions - so when we ordered about 7 dishes - the waiter said he though that this would be more than... More

Part one: dinner on Dec 25. The place was full. Surprisingly, the food of our 10 course $698 dinner was consistently of high quality. Every item of the first course, roasted suckling pig combination platter, was fresh and well prepared. Stuffed crab claws with fresh fruit was as good as others we have tasted. Specialty fried rice wrapped in lotus... More

Staying in your hometown lets you experience it as no tourist can. There are many fine restaurants in Vancouver but when I want a taste of Asia there are too many to choose from. One place stands out a little more and that's the Red Star on Granville Street. For lunch, it has an ample menu full of small dishes... More

Dined in on Sunday morning around 11am. Restaurant not as busy as usual. Filled up shortly. As always food was excellent, hot and flavourful. It took twice as long to get our dim sum. We actually asked twice when our food would be coming. I had to get to work so we ended up eating quickly and not enjoying our... More

Had a dim sum brunch here. You order from menu which is huge. They have a lot of unusual choices although they are missing some standards. The places was crowded on a Friday afternoon. I believe that I was the only non-oriental there. That's OK I was able to communicate and my choices pleased me very much. Everything was delivered... More

This restaurant serves excellent deep fried pork rib, in small pieces, and as crunchy on first bite, they just melt in your mouth. Wow. The second meat dish was minced pork with tofu stewed in hot sauce, a popular northern dish. We were there for the good seafood dishes., we had shrimp and scallops stir fried with vegetables. The shrimps... More

Excellent Dimsum and everything so fresh, tasty and still steaming when brought to the table.. Excellent service considering that it was full house at lunch time.
