I've given my fair share of one star Yelp reviews and I've never felt bad about them (often quite angered, actually). In this case, I feel bad because the owner (Dick Lee?) seems really nice.

My husband and I visited this shocking place today and ended up walking out. We ordered as required and were given a number. After 30 minutes we were still waiting so my husband went to ask how much longer and was told our food was on its way and given a spring roll to tied us over. My husband wasn't... More

Dick Lee's is a family run chinese bakery making dim sum as well as many other chinese pastries made fresh daily. Many pastries are made for the Lunar New Years but available year round. Another great service is pre-made wontons which are fresh frozen!!

A unique neighbourhood decorated with colourful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates.

Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighbourhood.
