The food is of high quality, very fresh seafood, prepared in an Asian way. They are specialised in doing the king crab, multi-kg big animal coming directly from Alaska to Vancouver. If you want to try, I believe it's better to book it in advance....More

Tried the house specialties, crab and squab , and not disappointed. Other dishes tasty as well. Large party well looked after. Peking duck properly served. A bit pricy but a fine experience.

This place is very busy and many locals frequent for dim sum. I had high expectations but was somewhat let down. The dim sum here is very old school (circa early 90s Hong Kong) not very refined and lacks the wow + yum factor. We...More
