I've had the opportunity to work on a school project over the weekend recently and had them deliver food for 3 nights in a row!
The party trays have plenty of food at inexpensive prices for that quality. I had the chance to sample much of the menu and haven't been greatly disappointed. Only the saba sashimi got a little sick after having so many pieces in the party tray. The prices are decent, especially for free delivery!.. Its great when they know you by name and address, and they remember that you've ordered 3 nights in a row. Service doesn't get full marks because one time I waited over an hour for an order, usually its 30 minutes. I guess they should hire more kitchen staff.
Haven't actually eaten in the store so don't know much about ambiance. No choice but to give it a 3. Although I've been inside to pick up and see that they don't have many tables.

I've been there quite a few times and keep coming back for more. Yes its far from Vancouver and Richmond and such, but good for people living in Burnaby, New West, or Coquitlam.
It was the first "all you can eat" I found to have unlimited wild salmon, geoduck, and hamachi. The latter two is not the best quality but what do you expect from an AYCE place? The other food is pretty standard but it comes much faster than other places, probably because they use their PDAs instead of a long piece of paper. Also one of the places I've found that doesn't shrink your order. Deserves only a 4 because it doesnt have some of the things that are available in other restaurants (shorter menu compared to others).
The atmostphere is great.. but it would be nice to have larger TVs and I could actually see the hockey puck.
The parking is pretty bad sometimes, wish they would provide free parking for the lot beside the casino, on the other side.

I think you're going to the wrong restaurant for dim sum carts. The ones you're looking for are Cantonese dim sum and they're available in chinese seafood restaurants (usually). The closest one would be on the 3rd floor of Aberdeen. This restaurant serves mainly Shanghainese and other northern Chinese food, and their small appetizers are also called Dim Sum.
That being said, every experience I've had there has been great. I always go for the "xiao long bao" and also some of the noodles they have. Prices do lean towards the expensive side but really, it goes to the rent for that place. One sad point is the uncomfortable booths they have, its too rigid for my liking.
If you ever get a chance, try eating in the dining room, they have a different menu.
