Let me start off by saying my wife and I (and Family) have eaten DimSum hundreds of times in many restaurants and in many cities. I would add that Vancouver has some of the best Dim Sum in North America. I hear that Hong Kong is very good but I cannot compare since I have not visited it. I will tell you that you have to judge based on value for your dollar not price alone or quality alone. I also judge my Dim Sum based on 2 dishes. Har Gow and Sui Mai. We ordered 5 items. The Har Gow (shrimp dumpling) don't seem to available on the carts. You order it and it comes in maybe 7 minutes. I think Har Gow is fragile and lousy if it gets cold. Their Har Gow was moist, steaming hot, tender, creamy, large, tasty and pink. WOW!!! 5 stars!! Next we ate the Sui MAi (pork/shrimp dumpling). These came on the cart. They were large, tender and tasty. I felt the pork and shrimp were high quality. The taste was wonderful!! Again 5 Stars!!. Next we had the spare ribs. These were wonderful. Tender, meaty and flavourful. I prefer mine with more garlic but these were TASTY!!! OK 4 1/2 stars. We had the sticky rice wraps. They were Excellent. Tasty rice with great ingredients. Ample tasty ground pork, slices of chinese sausage and beans. 4.75 Stars!! Lastly we had a dish of rice with chicken. This comes with either ribs, chicken, beef or barbeque pork. It also had two large slices of delicious mushroom and two large pieces of brocoli. It had lots of tender tasty chicken pieces. If I had a criticism it would be the chicken is chopped randomly leaving some sharp carhds of chicken bone. Eat with caution. The rice was tender, loose and tasty. It was served with a sauce that I am not sure how to describe other than YUMMY!! GREAT!!
Unfortunatley we were only two so had to pass up some amazing looking dishes. Eggplant stuffed with shrimp, Deep fried shrimp stuffed wonton, shrimp wonton in a broth, etc. We will DEFINITELY go back!!
The service was fast and friendly. They refilled the tea pot twice. Two staff roamed around and took care of the little things like extra napkins, filling tea and picking up dishes.
Dim Sum for 2 with tax and large tip was $28.00. I highly recommend this place. My wife and I, grandkids, family etc. will be going back often. I believe this is an undiscovered (lousy location) gem in Coquitlam. If you want to experience solid, tasty Dim Sum by a chef who obviously is trying to serve high quality traditional food, dine here. (No I'm not Asian!!, born in Belgium!!)
