Me and three friends needed a place to watch UFC 114 so we decided to try out the Sin Bin. The food was below average. The yam fries were not crispy and the cheese on the nachos was poor quality. The service was great. Our waitress checked in on us frequently and changed our plates twice. The value just wasn't there ($5 cover charge doesn't help). We were shocked when our order of dry ribs consisted of 8 small meatless pieces. Their whole menu had inflated prices for your standard pub food. The place felt like a overcrowded barn with flimsy tables.
I would not recommend this place to anyone. There are better sports bars than this.

For some odd reason, each time I have Dim Sum here, I find myself more and more satisfied with the food. By placing an order, instead of being served from a cart, I find the food hotter, fresher and tastier. I have yet to come across an item I didn't like.
As for the service, It's par for the course. As with most dim sum places you'll need to flag staff to get attention.
Value wise, you find most dishes to cost $2.75 while the special dishes are $3.75 and up. (cheaper than Pelican down the road)

Food is very fresh. Oysters are huge, beef is marbled and well marinated, vegies are fresh. I would not recommend the spicy broth.
Service is prompt. You're given an order sheet with all the ingredients. You mark down what you want and hand it to any staff and they do the rest. Expect to wait a while for a table during peak hours. I would recommend getting a reservation.
At 20 bucks a head, its a little steep. But it's a small price to pay for a comfortable, enjoyable dinner. It looked like a fun night was had by all.
The decor was clean and modern. Washrooms are immaculate. I wouldn't expect anything less from a restaurant less than a week old.
