This judgement is given based on the Hong Kong standard not the local Chinese standard. As a result, the restaurant is very crowded and business is good. This has made the service suffer. The staff could be more friendly and cheerful. If you only care for good food, that is fine. However, if you are service orientated, you will be disappointed.

The Dynasty is really busy for weekend dim sum, so make a reservation or you might not get in for a while. They have a large menu with good descriptions so you know what you are ordering. The food came fairly quickly with everything arriving hot. As we had with us a child who did not like dim sum, we were able to order a dish off the dinner menu - lemon chicken with plain race - that kept him happy. Service at the end of the meal was a bit slow - took a while to get the bill.

Very good food. Restaurant was full so very popular. Waiter was very helpful explaining the menu and suggesting what to eat and how many dishes we should have. Would recommend this restaurant.

As visitors to Vancouver BC, a salesperson in a shop told us if we wanted really the best Chinese food in Vancouver, go to this restaurant. We were reticent because we had to take a cab ($12 and worth it). When we arrived, I was a little intimidated because mostly everyone in the restaurant was Asian, sitting around large round tables as pretty large groups (except for one table for 2). The four of us went in and were guided to a smaller round table that fit us well. We didn't know everything on the menu and saw that you could order a prix fixe for any given number of dishes. We were feeling adventuress and order a seafood lobster menu. Each dish exceeded the next. The waiters didn't all speak English but Henrry (yes, double "r") spoke fairly good English and was so kind and helpful in guiding us about the food and all the questions I had about dishes I saw coming out for other tables. We laughed and ate and had one of the best times in a 3 week vacation in the North West and BC. Wish they were close by.

The bustle and high quality at Dynasty made me think of City Hall in HK, without the carts Standouts were the black truffle dumplings, crab crystal dumplings, pea tips (duo miao), and taro balls, but everything was tasty -- and not oily. Hargow wrappers were not super thin, and the shu mai were just okay, but the overall vibe is authentic and it's got a great vibe. There's a view over the harbour if you play it right. Tasty, noisy, and very local.
