Huge restaurant, high quality everything. Great decor and very clean. Food was excellent and only marked it down because staff were a little bit slow to take our order. Overall worth a visit if you are in Vancouver.

Excellent food and service. A must go to place with family and friends. We’ve gone for birthdays, Univ. graduations and with guests from out-of-town.

Terrific dim sum serving all the classics. Terrific rice noodle dumplings. Fresh seafood. Items are notably well sized. Fun atmosphere.
