We always stop here when in Vancouver! They have the best rice cakes and steamed buns. A good assortment of frozen dimsum as well.

Coming from an area without a Dim Sum option we always look for some when the opportunity arrives. New Town fit the bill great. Their buns are huge and tasty. They also have a full menu of other items.

The dim sum selection is very limited and was a bit crisp. This may be due to our arriving close to their closing time of 8:30pm. The tea is served in plastic tumblers.

We come weekly for the pastries that have gotten a bit more expensive in the newer (3yr) location. Apple tarts and egg tarts are great and you can have dim sum sit down or takeaway! Steamed buns tasty! Good luck and enjoy!

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;

space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
