Dim sum

Good dim sum restaurant, have never eaten any other meals here. Service efficient, order on the multiple choice do it yourself menu, and they bring your dishes. Prices very reasonable. Often waits on the weekends, but you can reserve in advance.

Visited dim sum restaurant for lunch. Varsity of dishes and quality was quite good for being outside of Vancouver or Richmond proper. For many dim sum restaurants, surviving the meals without getting MSG high is half the battle. This one was actually very good and fast for service. Less $$ than some of the other local restaurants at under $4.00... More

When you are in the area, a must try for this Chinese restaurant. Delicious dim sum in the morning from 10 am to 2 pm great way to start your morning. In the weekend it does get very busy after 10:30 am so making a reservation for a large group is recommended. Dinner is also fabulous and the prices are... More

I went to the Rainbow Butterfly Chinese Restaurant with a friend at his suggestion. He had been there a number of times before and always enjoyed it. We did so today too, very much. We arrived around 11:45 and were seated immediately. The restaurant filled up soon when the lunch crowd arrived. Service throughout was quite good, on occasion a... More

This restaurant is simple, well laid out and clean, clean, clean. Maybe because it is so well laid out, the service is very fast, friendly and efficient. Most of all, the food is out of this world. Whether you are adventurous or new and a little timid the Dim Sum will take you directly to your happy place. Get their... More

We were waiting in line for our dim sum, but the owner let a big group of people jump in line because he knows them. When I confronted him, he simply told me to go somewhere else.

My family has eaten at Rainbow Butterfly on many occassions. The food is quite good with decent portions. I just wish the service was a bit better. They welcome you into the restaurant, seat you hastily, after that it is like you are an inconvenience to them sadly. The owner is the best person to deal with as he appears... More

Giving this restaurant a 4 star rating despite what may be the worst service I've ever encountered says a lot for the food here. Very excellent! Just don't go expecting to have your bill in an hour and be on your way. The food was fresh, well seasoned and just plain delicious. And we had no place to be fast,... More
