This is a dumpling restaurant the MOVES people. The food is excellent, but you have to have some familiarity with this kind of food. The best dishes were noodle and meat dishes. The dumplings were very good, but everything else was even better. It is a bit loud and you have to wait to get seated but it is well... More

I have had the pleasure of dining at Dinesty over the last year. Visits have consisted of a party of two, to a party of 10. Service is quick and courteous (I have never had a language issue). large menu, lots of selection, food service is quick and excellent quality. My only criticism of this establishment is that the bathrooms,... More

This restaurant is located in the shopping complex on Ackroyd Road and Number 3 Road next to the Starbucks. We came on a Wednesday around noon time and waited about 5 minutes for a table for 2. There were plenty of larger tables available but the server asked us to wait for a smaller table if we didn’t mind. We... More

Good variation of tapas style Szechuan food. Their dumplings are good. There is several location, in Richmond itself, there is 3. Make sure you get to the right location. Service gets slow when it is busy... I like their smoked duck, it is great with the plain buns that they serve. Their cold cuts are quite good...

We booked a huge circle table for a birthday dinner on a Saturday night. Prompt service, lots of food came quite quickly and staff saw to our needs. We were also able to pay using credit cards individually - just tell the service how much to charge your card. Good location - would recommend to friends

If you like a diner style restaurant and menu with teenage diners, this is your kind of restaurant. The food is average at best and beware of MSG. The Shanghaiese dishes the restaurant offered are mediocre and you are better going to a authentic Shanghaiese restaurant. The staff are not knowledgeable. A place for young patrons to hang out. An... More

We came here for the dumplings and generally left satisfied. Service was functional and the restaurant was clean. All the dishes were cooked well albeit some were ultimately not up to our personal taste. This was one of the better Chinese meals we had on our recent visit to Vancouver. The value was pretty good too.

Friendly, English speaking staff, and delicious above average food! Reservation highly recommended as this place gets filled fast. Menu has pictures and the kitchen area is visible from the glass partition which is a plus for me so you can see how the food is prepared and the state of area where they prepare your food. We are definitely going... More

If this restaurant claims "making reservation at a specific time can only give you priority when the table is available", what is the use of asking us time? Last time we when there, they stood us up for 15minutes after the reserved time slot and gave us pretext like "something wrong with our kitchen and we couldn't serve food on... More

Hard to communicate with the staff as some didn't speak English. After having trouble keeping the menus as we want to order some more items, the server couldn't describe the food properly. Best to find somewhere else.
