“Good food with a 'tude”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Hard to find a restaurant actually open in Chinatown, so Jade Dynasty was it. Can't say we were greeted warmly, but we were greeted immediately and seated. We only ordered TWO dim sum and two beverages. Waitress came back to say they were out of the pork fried dim sum. Really?! She blasted off while I was trying to decide on an option, then returned and told me it was "o.k.". Food arrived quickly and it was tasty so happy ending even though I felt we really annoyed her. I would give it average, but I'm giving it very good because my son liked the dim sum that much.

“Good dimsum!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

We went out for lunch and the restaurant was full with Chinese, so we were pretty sure it will be good and it was. We ordered Xiao Long Bao, Siomay, Hakaw, Sticky Rice, Shanghai Pork Buns, and Radish Cakes. I would say everything was good except for the radish cake was just OK..so-so.
The service was fast, food came out quickly. The owners were friendly while the server was not so friendly; typical Chinese serious straight face without much of customer service. If you know and used of their culture, you won't find that offensive. Just enjoy the food..

“Great Food, Reasonable prices”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

It was not raining this time while walking the streets of lower downtown Vancouver.Coming from Montreal, we figured there would be a diferent style of Chinese food in downtown Vancouver China Town. It is harder to order when just two people, and not wanting to spoil the appetite for the evening family events, so we lucked out on 2 dishes. Served of course with hot tea.A simple chow mein, and an exciting beef with ppercorn. best tasting beef and pepper I have ever had, so we had to write about it. Sorry we do not know the menu number.Restaurant was crowded at 2 PM, tells you a bit about its reputation

“Fun and Inexpensive!!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went to eat lunch at the Jade Dynasty Restaurant without any expectations. We ordered meals at random and the food was delicious and plentiful. We ordered 3 plates and 2 sodas and we paid $23.00. The place is not fancy and they have tables have plastic covers but it is great for the value.
