There's always one or more tables available at this restaurant - possibly ome of them abandoned mid-meal by dissatisfied diners. Friends visiting during Grey Cup weekend invited us to meet them at the restaurant's new location in Tinseltown. Our first impression was the entire staff from receptionist to servers were distracted by something outside the premises. Our second and most... More

This is truly a crazy place that I will forever cross off my list! As others have mentioned the service is hit and miss. Ask for a vodka tonic and get something with a cherry or strawberry flavor, and are told it was a vodka tonic.....no mistakes here! The meals all arrived at different times......way far apart. Ask for chili... More

3 of us went for dinner to check out the new location in International Village as a potential location for a family dinner later in the month. We will be going someplace else. On arrival, met by the hostess on her cellphone on a conversation that kept going. Dropped at a table near the bar with bucket style chairs that... More

This is by far, my favorite place in Vancouver to eat Dim Sum. They have just moved from the location on West Broadway to Tinsletown, very close to the movie theatres up on the second floor. The new space is very different. Huge patio, very comfortable and open. The food is still awesome. I LOVE the Szechuan green beans. All... More

Limited menu, tasted like the dim sum was bought a T & T and reheated. The service was poor and the prices expensive.

I hate writing reviews that are negative..I know it impacts peoples business but I must tell the truth. My fiancee and I went there to eat because of a 50 % off Living Social Coupon. One of the men their smelled like he had not taken a shower in days...and I have not encountered that in any restaurant in years.... More

I enjoy the 'footballs' made of sweet sticky rice stuffed with savory filling. Also spicy squid, honey garlic ribs, shrimp spring rolls

I only tried the DimSum. 3 times. It's not the best one, but given the reasonable price I like to go there with my family. I particularly like the fried triangle (vegetable + shrimps i think). Not enough choice maybe if you have someone in the group that is vegetarian.

I have been a regular customer of this place but I have made it the last time after a very rude incident with one of the waiters to the point we basically got up, and left without ordering any food as we didn't want to cause a scene. I don't want to go into details of what happened but reading... More

The food wasn't bad, but it just wasn't that good either. In a city that has so many Asians, how can a supposedly Szechuan Chinese restaurant serve up such bland and uninspired food?
