We went this past Tuesday around 7pm. The main dining area was about 50% full.
Notable dishes we had were Peking Duck and dungeness crab. We ate here a few times before and tonight the seafood wasn't up to par. For anyone interested, the King Crab was $27/lb.
More important than the food however was the poor service. At times there seemed to be NO serving staff present at all. We had to ask multiple times for simple items like rice, tea and cutlery. We also had a 15 minute stretch between finishing our crab and the next course.
The Zagat review on the wall by the washrooms also mentions "uneven service".
Perhaps service is better on the weekends. I've definitely had better food here, and for the simple reason that they have such a huge advertisement on the wall at the YVR International Arrivals gate I am inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt.
Anyways, at the end of it all we've decided there are other Chinese restaurants that suit our taste. But for King Crab, I can't think of anywhere else.
