“Good dim sum to impress or just because”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Living in Vancouver we are blessed with many places to go for dim sum. The challenge is to find good QUALITY food. There is no cart-service here but dishes are brought to your table fresh, hot and steamy. All items we ordered were delicious, especially the shrimp dumplings ("har gow", 4 pieces) which were tasty and dainty unlike the mammoth-sized, steroid-injected ones you so often see nowadays. Expect to pay about $5 per dish + tea charge. Better to make a reservation or arrive before 11:30 and be warned that it is very noisy; however, the decor and view over False Creek is a plus.

“Great Place for a Special Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is the place to get great Chinese food where the presentation and quality gets top awards. I have met the head chef and his skill and dedication really show in the meals that are served. We are regular customers at the Dynasty for any special event and I rank this as my favorite place to eat in Vancouver.

“You want good Chinese food, this is it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

With so many Chinese in and around Vancouver, there had to be some great places to check out Chinese cuisine and this turned out to be one of them!
One good sign evident as soon as we entered the large dining room was it was full of Chinese and Japanese diners - in fact we only saw one other Caucasian guy in there and he had a Chinese partner! The tables were well dressed with white linen and, though there were lots of covers and the place was humming, it did not feel too crowded. The food was delicious and fully met our expectations. The service very attentive. This was a top end restaurant yet excellent value for money. Yummy!

“A Classy Place to do Dim Sum in Vancouver”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Dynasty is kind of a upscale Chinese restaurant in Vancouver with a beautiful view of the city skyline. The food is good but quite pricy. A group of highschool friends and I each paid $20 for a dim sum lunch. The place is very clean, service is good with two hours of free underground parking.

“Very-very impressed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

We were looking for a place to spend our last evening in Vancouver. We were heading home, our daughter was staying there, at UBC... Well, we came to the "Dynasty Seafood Restaurant" for a dinner. We were their first customers, restaurant just opened. Very clean, spacious, well kept place.
My husband carefully selected not-too-spicy beef (with ginger-pineapple and tenderloin in black bean souse- very well prepared and authentic), I added fish to his order (fried, comes on the bed of eggplants). Everything was unbelievably tasty! Fish was super-fresh , very moist, very light. Meat was amazing as well. Add rice and 2 pots of green tea- and here is our amazing dinner for three. No leftovers, perfectly enough.
Our waiter, Henry (I have a photo of my bill, where I can see his name), was very attentive and caring. He made sure our dinner went well. Loved the place, definitely will go again, when in Vancouver- I would like to try their dim-sum as well.
We paid ~50$ for this dinner for 3. In Montreal you just cannot find Chinese restaurant of that quality for such a price.
