Dim sum lunch on carts

Food kinda average, had to send back the short ribs as partially (cooked while frozen) raw in one place grilled in another

Lots of shrimp dishes, service quick and efficient

Attended on a very busy evening during Chinese New Year's, Friday, Jan.31st.
The food was excellent, Entertainment of the Lion Dance was alot of fun!
The only problem was the cold air at our table ~ every time the door opened a floor below, I could feel a big draft!
Also, because of the number of guests, the service was very slow and the dishes came very sporadically, not together.
In fact, the rice came almost at the end of the meal, which we asked for first!
Will go again when it isn't as busy!

This is a very nice sit down and enjoy kind of restaurant. The service is above average and the atmosphere it comfortable and upscale. However my seafood noodle plate came with the noodles only half cooked. The plate was otherwise ok but for the price I would have thought all of it would be much better. Next time I will probably try one of the other nearby places. Again this place is upscale but tends to rush the plates out and somewhat rush you when you order.
Waiters need to be more patient,

We have been long time patrons but on Christmas Day (a day we usually eat there) lots of bad things were going on. The food was not up to their usual standards. The service was EXTREMELY slow and then the waiter forgot to get the kit hen to prepare one of the dishes we ordered. We received our order one dish at time instead of all at once. When the waiter realized the error, he said that to begin would be another 30 minute wait. Obviously, we declined to accept that dish. They have problems that start with the prep and continue with the quality of the food which led to a bad experience. I hope they get it together and this isn't the start of a downward spiral.

The better half and I visited this resturant when we were in Calgary ,on the advice of a somewhat condecending relative .(he has a less than steller opinion of my favorite dim sum resturant here in Edmonton,Jumbo)Anyways after we opened the door ,we greeted by the sight of a line up of people all the way up the stairs ,a double edge sword in my opinion,we were going to have to wait.but the food must be pretty good or why would people line up?I got a # 46and went to the back of the line.the dragon turns over the tables quickly,so we only waited 15to 20 minutes.The food carts came by filled fantastic dumplings,deep fried goody's.There were only a couple of dish's that we felt could have been better,as the sticky rice that was in the clear dish was too fishy for our taste,and the spring rolls were kind of dry.Will return next chance we get.and when we left ,the line up to get in was still as long as when we got there.
