Features a big 100 table room that is fairly busy during lunch giving you that Hong Kong feel.
The carts are fast and the food is pretty good and not too greasy like some other Dim Sum houses.
The only thing is they charge white people more money than they do asians. I have been there with all asian friends and the meal was pretty cheap and have been there with a smaller amount of people who were all white and the bill was higher.

The menu is pricey but the meals are decent except dont order the oysters. They were 3.25 a pop and were really tiny. The glob of hot sauce was bigger than the actual oyster. I felt really ripped off. The steak was good but the appy's are really small (think 2-3 bites for $10+).
I would have to say that it might be a good place to take people from out of town who have never seen Granville Island but it is clearly an expensive tourist trap.
Service was however excellent.

Was a big fan of the original Rodneys in Toronto and the Vancouver version did not let me down.
Sat at the bar drank a couple beers and ordered 2 dozen assorted oysters for a friend and I. Excellent selection and excellent recommendations by the staff. These guys know thier stuff amd its fun to watch them shuck the oysters right in front of you.
The atmoshere was perfect, think dock meets inside of sailboat and the Hamilton street setting really adds to a great experience.
The food is pricey but you get what you pay for.

Was there for a birthday party.
The food is presented in an artsy manner with only a few bites per plate. It was tasty but the portions were way too small and I didnt feel that I got alot of value. Food was a bit salty too but it was tasty. I left hungry after spending $40 on food.
The atmoshere was ok but it could have easily been better (candles on table, put something on the blank walls!)
It seemed that there wasnt a real comfortable 'vibe' to the place and we left sooner than normal because the seating is kind of uncomfortable.
I am sure that it can only get better as it is a new place.
