Pretty good food with late night hours. Had dinner late one night. The food was fast & hot. Everything was tasty. Have had their dim sum in the past & found it to be quite good as well. Typical dim sum items.

Every time I come here, the place is flocked. It takes about 5 minutes to get a table if you are unlucky. The food here is good and the carts that they push around are very convenient. Although, some things like congee and curry cuttlefish (which is good) you need to order. The food tastes good but there is a... More

Eventhough I made the reservation we still waited about 40 mins. Very typical Chinese restaurant. Love the traditional carts pushing around the tables. But too many people, I had to walk to the carts to ask for them to send over. Overall, like the dim sum

Golden Swan has been at this east end location for many, many years and that's tough in a competitive town for Chinese food. The ambiance is pretty much as expected, that is to say, noisy, crowded and most importantly, full of Chinese people. That means that the food is not geared towards tourists, it is authentically Chinese. Food is quite... More

Went with 5 co-workers and had a nice time, yummy food and really enjoyed the fact they still have the food carts. We were there Saturday morning so of course they were very busy, we did make reservations, so that is definitely the way to go. They do not have much parking, however I managed to park just 1 block... More

did our family dinner there. usually go to restaurants in Richmond but thought try something different. parking is the only complaint since the parking lot is full and usually can't accommodate more than 15 cars, so have to park on street. Food is actually not bad. We took the set menu for 6 people and that was more than enough... More

Service has gone downhill....food quality has followed it. The food looks good but is pretty bland. Used to go here quite often and I'm not sure what has happened but the food has taken a nose dive. Service is typical of a Chinese restaurant, so don't expect anything great...

We took our friend from Hawaii who was in town for the Lulu Lemon ½ marathon to this restaurant based on a friend’s recommendation and also the restaurant still has servers pushing the food carts. The three of us arrived around 10:30 AM and we were lucky enough to find street parking in front of the restaurant on Victoria Drive... More

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 the flair of a...

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
