“Good dim sum - bad for dinner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

We enjoy going there for dim sum- food is good. But dinner tonight was awful - totally flavorless. When I tried to tell the person at the front, firstly she just walked off while I was still talking (!), and then when I went back she said it was because it is very busy. Yeah, whatever... We won't be going for dinner again.

“Good food, slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

Went with 7 business associates and had a good dim sum lunch. The food was good but the service was a bit slow and off hand. Central location in Royal Centre. Worth a try.

“Traditional Chinese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

A very good chinese restaurant in a city full of chinese restaurants! They have a great dim sum every day and are located right downtown by the Hyatt hotel. They have all the traditional chinese dishes and all are very good indeed. If you want a good dinner or a great dim sum experience, its great.

“Dim sum, very good although pricy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

My husband and I have been going to Victoria for years. The dim sum is very good although it is expensive, this is understandable due to the location and size of the restaurant. Not sure about the bad reviews. We always have good service, but are not afraid to ask for more sauce, bowls, water and tea. If you ask you will get. We go for the quality of the food. We may get better service as we are regulars at this restaraunt, visiting about once a month. If you want good dim sum downtown I recommend this restaurant.
