Why some tables with the menu? and some without the menu?
By burnaby of burnaby and vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, July 17, 2010 - 9:35am [Dine in]

I just don't don't don't get it . Could anyone tell me ? Thanks

At one time, I came with my coworkers, we got a table with menu (accidentally?) . So we can order something from the menu. I think the sticky rice is good.

So the next time, I took my children there, I wanted to order the sticky rice. But they put me at the table with NO MENUS. I asked them for the menu, but people just hmm hmmm, which I didn't know what they were talking about. So I tried to order without the menu for the "sticky rice". Waited Waited Waited, they brought out the "sticky rice in leaves" which I didn't mean. Again I didn't know how I could get the menu.

When I went to the cashier to pay for my bill, I asked a woman there. She was so so so mean. She told me "i don't know what you're talking about. we don't have enough menu for every table"

What does that mean? "DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MENU FOR EVERY TABLE?" . so the table without the menu can't get the food like the table with the menu? . I didn't ask for the table "without the menu" at the beginning, why did they treat me like that? besides, they were so mean to me (maybe because I'm not chinese?)

It's not like "one is all you can eat .. one is the regular type" that they treat customers "differently" like that

Please, can anyone explain to me WHAT'S GOING ON?

Thank you, I never went to any restaurant that is "so rude and discriminate" like this restaurant before

good exotic food
By kristy503 of Oregon (7 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, August 21, 2008 - 8:16pm [Dine in]

This is one the restaurant I recommend for exotic food choices. The location is kind of ghetto looking. The parking is small. There were too many tables and the way that it was arranged in the restaurand made it cramped. The people was friendly and gave good recommendation. I would definitely come back here for dinner but not during peak time.

Higher end Dim Sum with carts
By crappy of Vancouver (8 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 10:50am [Dine in]

There is a long wait and it may not be worth it. It is mainly Chinese so you know it's good. The prices are reasonable for the higher end food and decor.

TVs in the corners to keep kids occupied. Large foyer area to keep out of the cold. Small parking area and little street parking.

The restaurant is hidden in a strip-mall but it's hopping for Dim Sum.

Dim Sum delight
By cuddles of vancouver (5 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, October 8, 2007 - 2:51am [Dine in]

I eat Dim Sum here about once a week or so. Fair value for delicious food. My favourite Dim Sum restaurant in Vancouver. Har Gow, Su Mai and sticky rice my favourites. I take 3 buses to get there. Their Shrimp Fried Rice has shrimp the size of my baby finger curled up and is it ever delicious. MMMMMMMMM GOOD Vern

oh boy, i love dimsum
By jphw of burnaby (5 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 16, 2007 - 12:50am [Dine in]

I've been going to this place for years now, either with my Cantonese family or alone with my conspicuously white boyfriend, and guess what: it's consistently awesome. If you can tough out the crowd, (dont be ashamed to elbow ur way in or trample a few keeners - the hoverers at the podium already have a ticket!!) the food is well worth the wait at ~$2.25/plate! They renovated, which made me very sad for those few weeks/months, but now they are jazzier than ever. Hostess at the front is adorable and never gives into the pressure! btw - "dap toi" means share a table, dont ask me how, but it works.

Good dimsum
By rammer1012 of Burnaby (6 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, September 2, 2007 - 12:55am [Dine in]

Dimsum is reasonably priced and quite good. Long wait time for a table specially on weekends but people do wait patiently. Dinner is ok but a bit pricey for the area, quality of food, portions and ambience. Will go back for lunch but not dinner. Service is ok.

not bad for inexpensive dim sum
By ms-sunshine of Vancouver (9 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, March 13, 2007 - 2:32am [Dine in]

i've had dim sum here many times. i always go on weekday mornings/afternoons and still have to wait at least 10 mins. before getting a table. for their prices you really can't go wrong. their dinner dishes are also pretty good. they have a pretty wide variety of dim sum. and i love the fact that their turn-around is so fast - so the food's usually still hot/warm. love the salty chicken on rice and bbq duck with noodle in soup. favs. also include "dow miu dumpling", gar lan, deep fried tofu with veggies, smelt, pork with rice, and etc. service is pretty good considering their always so busy. they renovated about a year ago so the place looks very presentable. so if they don't up the prices to much in the future, i will definitely continue to visit.

Disappointed
By mandmsbaba of Surrey (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, August 5, 2006 - 10:49am [Dine in]

Dai Tung came recommended by colleagues of my wife, so we decided to take our two young kids and try the place out. We usually make a point of ordering HK-style sweet and sour chicken whenever we eat out... for the kids sake. So far, all restaurants we've been to have done quite a good job of replicating this dish... with the exception of Dai Tung. Dai Tung managed to make a huge mess out of what is a simple dish. We were unable to tolerate more than a few pieces of the grease-soaked and over-battered pieces of chicken. The garnishing pieces of pineapple, onion and green pepper, looked like they were cut in a hurry and thrown onto the plate.

Overall, a cold to lukewarm experience. The bill came to $50... highly overpriced for the quality of food and amount we ate.
