If you're a dim sum aficionado, Golden Swan in British Columbia is one to appreciate. There are many types of dim sum to select from - freshly prepared and steaming hot served in small steamer baskets. No need to wait as the servers with dim...More

Rainy day and we heads out to Victoria and end up with this restaurant with a huge crowd that caught our attentions. We had a table and sat right away. It was full of people. What I like about this place is the unique way...More

Staying nearby overnight and just looking for somewhere easily accessible with parking. Was surprised to find it was all white tablecloths, in a very large room. In spite of being nearly empty they sat us right near the door at a used table. Odd. We...More

Like so many Chinese restaurants the Golden Swan closes daily between 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM. We attended early for dim sum and the offerings were much superior than when we last visited. Yes, of course we'll make it a point to return soon.

Today, Sunday, the place was packed by 10.45 when I arrived. Reservations are theoretically possible but not practicable--the place is too popular! The Golden Swan won Vancouver's 2007 prize as best place for Dim Sum, but the competition has grown in the past nine years....More
