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.

Good dim sum. Food is fresh and tasty. One of the go to restaurants where I take visitors and friends alike. As this is a higher end Chinese restaurant, be prepared to pay more but with that comes higher quality food and service.

The food was amazing. Everything was prepared very well. The jellyfish tasted good. The steamed fish was so tasty. They also had some geoduck which was pretty amazing. I wish we tried it. It was in the fish tank.

The best dim sum i have ever had , bar none. Simply delicious and mouth watering. Very reasonable price as well. The only negative is the long waiting time , even on weekdays. If you love Chinese food ,esp dim sum , you should not miss this place.

We knew we had made the right choice when we arrived as: 1) the noise level as we entered sounded like the Tower of Babel at about 100 decibels, and 2) we were the only non-Asians in the large place (about 70+ white linen-covered tables I estimated). Actually luxurious surroundings, comparably speaking, for a dim-sum restaurant. Service was fair to... More

Visited this restaurant several times (as well as their sister restuarant at 2200 - 8181 Cambie Road in Richmond, BC) for dim sum lunch and dinner. In the past, people often commented that the BBQ ducks and sucking pigs from Vancouver were better than the one in Richmond. They added that the same was applied to food as well. To... More

On the way into Vancouver from the airport we stopped at rage Red Star restaurant on South Granville for dinner. At 9 pm we were surprised to find the restaurant less than half full. After a tasteless dinner which was way overpriced we could understand so few customers. Also noticed the waiter trying to sell very expensive "fresh crab" to... More
