Invited Dad and friends for a Sunday Dim Sum. This is a little neighbour gem!! Small restaurant but the food portions are nothing but. We ordered up the usual dumplings of pork/shrimp/scallop. Those sweet BBQ pork buns are amazing and must have. Good service, washrooms are clean. Will definitely come back often!

We had dim Sum there. 6 people two families. Ate like kings and it was as usual $10 per person. Good service even though the place was packed for Chinese New Year. Great selection of common and not so common items on the menu. Parking was tough but we just dropped everyone close to front door and walked over. Easy... More

What makes Cindy's Palace stand out as a Chinese restaurant is the huge portion of food they offer on the plate. I just can't believe my eyes when the plates of food came to my table, they were huge portion! The food at Cindy's is good, and service is good too. A pretty good place to have Chinese supper in...

Good place for dim sum. Lots of variety and the servings are ample. If you go during the week , you get a discount. They have a small parking lot, but there is usually some parking on the street.

Cindy's Palace has great dimsum and dinner choices. The food is tasty and cooked the old Cantonese way for many dishes. The prices are reasonable with special discounts for dimsum and dinner.The photo menu reassures you what ordered is what you would expect.

First Vancouver Dim Sum experience and it was great! They had a large selection to choose from and the food was excellent! It is definitely a place I would recommend for those looking for some authentic Dim Sum while in the Vancouver area!

I visited Cindy's Palace with a couple of co-workers for lunch on a weekday. We had one person in our group who speaks Chinese, so she ordered the dishes for us. While the food was good, especially the shrimp dumplings, the service could be quite slow at times as well as payment at the cashier. There is a special at... More

There is no other restaurant that gets me more excited than Cindy's Palace. The first time we went there we had no idea what to expect, it blew us away! Everything I have eaten here has been outstanding. The dumplings are exceptional, great sticky rice balls, clams in black bean sauce (is one of my favorites) and the seafood is... More

Unlike most Chinese restaurants Cindy's doesn't close in the afternoon between 3 to 5 PM and they serve dim sum until they close. The entrance to the restaurant is not welcoming and on the cramped side, and what can I say about the stacks of dishes (an odd place for dishes). Once inside, the decor is plain. We ordered spicy...
