As the biggest dimsum fan ever, I am a little sad to write about this place. Sun sui used to be the place to get quality dim sum at a fair price in a lovely location. Unfortunately, as my last two visits have gone to demonstrate, the place has slowly been taking a nose dive. What used to be the epitome of dimsum and the standard for it across the city has taken a turn for the worst. We came for a lunch reservation only to find the whole thing subar. The food, from the duck to the shrimp and daikon cakes left a lot to be desired, and the service was very slow. There are place in Vancouver with better prices and service.
This cantonese family style restaurant with banquet like meals has so much potential, and I know they can do better than this.

Heard the rave about this place before and had never tried it out, some of my Indian friends said the buffet was really good so with a good word on it I took a leap of faith. Seemed like a safe Indian place and it had been a while since I had spicy hot food so I said "why not?" After my Friday night shift I decided to call in and order and just watch a movie to relax.
The person on the phone took my order rather quickly and even gave me suggestions. Not that I needed because I am all for the chicken tikka. I also got the chana chickpeas with rice to have some food for the next day. If only the delivery came as fast as the order.
The chicken tikka was alright but a little too unspicy, I must admit I was expecting more but maybe I should have ordered an extra level. Dunno if they make difference between the restaurant food and the one they deliver but I think a bit of taste was missing from the food.
