We came here for an early dinner - 5. (Just as they opened). It got busy in no time. Be prepared to thumb through pages and pages of yummy food deciding what to order! Everything looked so good. We had their popular steamed pork dumpling dish. We were told we needed to wait 15 mins but it came out fast.... More

Great place! Definitely get the dumplings and ask for chilli sauce. The servers are on top of it as well - good job! Can't wait to go back there!

Caution, let the container of dumplings rest a little before popping them in your mouth. They can be steamy hot when first brought to your table. One order never seems to be enough as the explosion of flavour that erupts from each tasty bundle is a wonderful thing. The duck is a nice accompaniment, but I could just eat dumplings... More

Went here for lunch and my wife and I thought it was a good sign that we were the only non Asian customers in a relatively busy restaurant. My experience with Chinese food is relatively pedestrian and mostly consisted of restaurants with 150 varieties of various meats and sauces. This was much different and the dumplings were tasty, unique and... More

This place is quite busy and has a lot of Asians customers, which is a good sign. You can also see thru a glass window a few chef preparing and cooking food. This is far from downtown. Have eaten in a lot of Din Tai Fung (DTF) at different countries but the xiao long bao is not the same. Most... More

This little restaurant came highly recommended. Yet, on my visit I was a little disappointed. Being very popular you have to wait for a table, surely a good sign? After a 15 minute wait I was seated and I chose a selection of dim sum from an extensive menu. The food consequently arrived. Hmmm, was it good? Unfortunately it failed... More

We were there for dinner on a weekday night. The restaurant was packed so we had to wait in line. The turnover was pretty fast so it shortened our wait time. The food was delicious and good value. Service was great and attentive. Note that Dinesty has a few locations to serve customers in different locations...Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby.

This restaurant is known for its dumplings. We were a large group and shared many different dishes, recommended by our waitress. The dumplings were excellent. My favorite dish was the spicy green beans with pork. Service was good.
