I am surprised this place has yet to be listed on dinehere.ca.
Had lunch here today based on various recommendations from friends.
We ordered (forgive me for I have no idea what the english equivalent for most of these dishes are) 2 X xiao long bao, steamed/fried pork buns (shen jian bao??), half a tea duck, a noodle with creamy soup. Then we added another xiao long bao and pork buns.
Needless to say we loved the xiao long bao and pork buns. The duck and the noodles were fantastic too. The last time my wife and myself ate so much xiao long bao was in Shanghai Yu Yuan, more than 10 years ago. The two of us queued in the rain to buy 30 pieces and ate every single one of them - in the rain! Of course nothing beats memories like that, but the ones here are very good.
Service is actually just decent, but considering we are in Richmond, I bumped it up a notch. The service here is efficient, and friendly. Can't ask for much more in Richmond.
Ambiance is actually poor, but the washroom is clean and the room is clean and bright. So I bumped it up a notch too.
Overall, this is not a place for date. Fantastic food, ok price, clean restaurant, efficient service. Eat and go. I wish they would ask before taking/replacing unused chairs from our tables though.
Oh before I forget, ask for lots of napkins once you're seated. Those things squirt!!!!
