Fast efficient service, despite it being a busy Saturday afternoon. On game day, all the staff were sporting Canucks jerseys or t-shirts. The food was excellent, piping hot, and the baked goods delicious. We bought some things for breakfast in our hotel.

It is nothing to look at and in a sketchy neighborhood, but the food is awesome. Too bad no room left for famous desserts

We had an amazing lunch of steamed buns, dumplings, duck and beef with noodles. The staff is very friendly. They really focus on the steamed buns and Chinese pastries. Don’t see how you can go wrong.

I am so in love with their steam buns. Aside from it is only 2.50 CAD per piece, it is so big that one piece could get you stuff pretty good. The Chicken deluxe is by far my personal favorite.

This is an institution updated in the last few years after a fire. You'll enjoy the Cantonese Dim Sum all day as well as baked goods. Our favorites are the Apple Tarts, Steamed Custard Buns and Spring Rolls. Staff may be a little surly but...More

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.
Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian
cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking,
Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
