Tried and true with plenty of happy smiles

The happy smiles were certainly on our faces as we were once again enjoying dim sum in this tried and true place. We have been coming here for many years, the restaurant is always busy, yes quite loud as big groups congregate for dim sum and children are certainly present - but that makes part of... read more

There were 7 of us for dinner. My uncle made reservations for a family dinner. The service was really outstanding. I think my uncle is a regular there as all the staff seemed to know him and he had pre-ordered one of his favorite dishes that requires additional preparation time. He had requested duck stuffed with taro and it was... More

Upon searching for another Chinese restaurant that served dim sum I discovered the Golden Swan Restaurant. Upon arriving at about 10:45 AM the restaurant was about 1/3 full but by noon almost 85% of the tables were occupied. A 20% discount is offered if you paid by 11:00 AM, this amount is reduced to 10% until 3:00 PM. The items... More

We have been dining at this restaurant for almost 20 yrs., and for my wife even longer. It has undergone some management / ownership change although the name was kept. As far as dimsum goes, the food is decent and the place can hold lots of people. We went to try dinner the other week as my parents saw some... More

After the ownership changed a few years ago the dim sum has "musty" taste to it. The new ownership also brought in new stubborn, unfriendly and unprofessional staff.

Golden Swan received a #1 award for Dim Sum in Vancouver, in 2007, it is still about the best I have tasted in Vancouver. Go during the week, arrive early so you can get a table, otherwise be prepared to wait. Food arrives hot and tasty, satisfaction index in the 95th %ile. Go and enjoy

Golden Swan Restaurant, located along Victoria Dr. and 35th Ave., Vancouver. This place is a decent resto for dimsum food. Pricing is reasonable and clean. The place is also quite large so chances of getting a table during weekday around 12 noon is good. On the weekend, you might want to arrive earlier as it fills up very quickly. The... More

Find a car park out in the neighbourhood across the road from the fire station on 34th and Victoria Drive. Golden Swan has been here for a long time and no surprises. Big bold and brassy old time Hong Kong style no frills dimsum service: tea keeps flowing ; choose your flavour from a choice of 6 or so and... More
