I was looking for cart style dim sum. I used to live in the States. Every dim sum place is all about dim sum cart. I like that kind of style, you see that many many carts keep coming and you got to see what the dish looks like before you order.
So I went to Golden Dynasty because they serve in cart style, big mistake. Contrary to US dim sum places, Gold Dynasty only two to three carts on floor at the same time, so pathetic. You can imagine how long it takes for those carts to finally reach your table. Really slow! It's so slow, you will no longer care for dim sum cart style, you just want to have menu order dim sum to end hunger. By the way, I went there during weekdays. It's already painfully slow.
The quality of food is bad, some don't look very appealing. Pudding looks like vomit. The bamboo steamers look worn out. The carpet is dirty. Some chairs are torn. I can't believe they use white plastic bag as table cloth. The material is like cheap garbage bag, it's very uncomfortable. Not to mention their menu is on a DVD box. Why? Did they get DVD box for free from the Rogers next door? Food is either warm or cold, it's definitely not hot.
Overall the dinning experience is really unpleasant. I never want to go back to that hell hole again just for cheap dim sum. Since their food doesn't even taste that great, there is no point sitting there and suffering just for cheap dim sum because dim sum is everywhere in this town.
And if you really want dim sum for cheap, why not just go to Yaoham or a lot of take out stores, they have cheap dim sum, all you need is to take home and reheat. They probably taste better than Gold Dynasty, plus you can sit comfortably at home instead.
I have been to beat up joins for really unique dishes which are so good that you don't even care about the place looks shitty and unclean. Golden Dynasty is NOT one of those joints.
