Not Grand King, but okay

When this place was Grand King, it was awesome. Back then I took friends from HK to impress them. Now it is just okay. Better than most, but far from the glory days. If you are nearby and hungry it is worth a visit. I still go, but it just isn't the same...

Great Dim Sum
By thecritic of Vancouver (376 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 22, 2004 - 2:38pm [Dine in]

I had dim sum here last Sunday and I was pleasantly surprised. They have a 2.75 special dim sum menu with all the classics. The quality was good, not too greasy, hot and fresh. The total bill was about 32 dollars for 4 people and we were all full with scraps still on the table. Needless to say, I will be back.

This is a solid alternative to Sun Sui Wah especially if you are on a bit of budget or would like to try something new.

The Delicate Art of "Picking Your Heart's Desire":
1) Go in factors of 4. It sucks to split the last ha-gow with the blunt end of your chopsticks.
2) Don't go with any vegetarians - especially losers who won't eat seafood. Might as well stay at home and drink tea.
3) Never expect good service - even the locals get shafted somehow. Anyways, the staff will think you're a sucker for leaving a tip that's higher than 10%.
4) If you're not going to venture into the shark fin soup or duck claw - just try a place like Dunhuang. They've got the staples cheap and pretty decent.
Though one problem: they didn't have carts so we could sheepishly point out what we wanted. Instead we went through a list of items that does a substandard job of describing each dish. We almost ordered the wrong sticky rice item. I spent most of the lunch slightly mesmerized by the penholder by the cashiers/defunct bar. You know those rubber yellow porcupines? Haven't seen one of those in ages. i always like how chinese restaurants always muck it up even when they're trying to look fancy.
