A long favorited for benevolent associations, Chinatown associations and even parliamentary parties the floata seafood restaurant is a venue that can hold over 1000 guests. The Chinese food at night time is a bit pricey but the dim sum is moderately priced.

I had the shrimp dumplings. They were hot, fresh, large and delicious for $6 per 4. There is parking for the restaurant. You order off a menu, they don't come around with carts.

This place was recommended by the local. It was almost 5pm when I arrived, so no more dim sum was served. They had dinner menu instead. I ordered hot and sour soup, scallops and black fungus, and general Tso's chicken. I was not too impressed....More

Hi Tom Where would you recommend for Dim . We have been in V for 5 days and Chinatown is a disappointment. Just a lot of dodgy restaurants and full of street people. Thanks Paul.
