You order off a dim sum menu. Food is always hot and served quickly. Great prices (compared to Victoria and Edmonton). Green beans wonderful. Pumpkin shrimp dumplings great. Peanut dumplings ok.

As always our favorite place for dimsums and other authentic Chinese food close to home. Many may have found the decor really dated! Yes it is but the place is Clean, restrooms clean and clean crockery / cutlery. The owner is not a chirpy guy! But do not forget you come to a place like this to enjoy your food... More

A great place for Real Chinese Food. Their Dim - Sum is awesome, and very reasonably priced. Weekends are very busy after 11am. Get there early, they open at 10am. Their service is great.

Meant to post earlier. Was there on Mothers day and although the restaurant was extremely busy customers were treated respectfully. We were told to expect a 20 minute wait and it was almost spot on. Service was very good and the food was to the usual high standard. Staff all had a smile on their faces. We do eat here... More

My wife really like going here for dim sum and initially I didn't mind it. I think when they first opened they tried to make the quality as good as possible but like so many others it has decreased over time. I don't like it anymore for several reasons: 1) It is always busy with people who are sneezing, coughing... More

We tried this restaurant for Take-out and were very pleased with both the quality and quantity of the food. The restaurant has a varied Take-Out menu. The flavours were rich and distinct, something one would expect from a good Chines restaurant in the Lower Mainland. Further, the prices were very reasonable, especially given the generous portions. I certainly recommend the... More

We live nearby and eat dim sum at the Rainbow Butterfly at least once a month. It is always friendly, quick and reasonably priced. It is very busy on Sundays but even if there's a wait they always get you in pretty quick. You order dim sum items off a menu, they don't have steamer carts but the food is... More
