We came here for dim sum because it was close to our downtown hotel. We knew that the best Chinese food in Vancouver is in Richmond but we didn't have a car, so picked this restaurant coz it was close and we could get a ride from our hotel courtesy car. The restaurant was clean and service was pretty attentive.... More

Arrived at 6pm on a weekday, my wife and two young kids (2 1/2 and 5) we're seated quickly. Good service and food came out quickly. My wife and I couldn't stop eating since it was the best Chinese food we'd had in ages. Not really a kid restaurant since slightly upscale, but they were still welcome.

This restaurant came highly recommended by our concierge and we found out why! This very authentic restaurant caters to the local Chinese clientele, the food was very delicious and the visit was a cultural experience! You must have a reservation to get in. They were very busy on the week night we went. Don't rush through your meal, which is... More

My wife and I are fans of upscale Chinese food, and I am specially fond of Peking Duck, so we search it out when we travel. London, NY, Toronto, Frankfurt, San Francisco, Mexico City, we have had some great and some not so great ducks, but this was by far the best. Service can be iffy, aloof and impersonal, and... More

Centrally located. Great ambiance. Good food. What more could you want? Having said that, if your idea of a great Chinese restaurant is one that's frequented by Chinese university students this is definitely not the place. Too upscale and too expensive to cater to that crowd.

Busy restaurant and bookings advisable. This is likely a reflection of the lack of Chinese alternatives in the area rather than on anything else. Service reasonably efficient though rather charmless. Food (I had dim sum) OK quality but a bit lacking in flavour. OK value for price paid.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
