We are staying in a hotel very near and saw Dinesty. They were making dumplings in the kitchen which is on the window. It all looked clean and professional. We had to wait a few minutes for a table (this place is deservedly popular) we...More

After a work week in Van, stayed over the weekend to hang out with a friend (and eat!). Since being introduced to XLB in Edmonton, I’m a big fan and anytime in a locale that may have good ones, I’ll seek these soup dumplings out....More

The wait was lengthy, but the dumplings were satisfying. While they aren't the best in Vancouver, they filled the void on a cold, rainy night.

The food is good, but nothing extraordinary. I have tasted better Chinese food. The tables are very close each other, and it is difficult to have a quiet dinner, it is crowded and the environment is too noisy

Good service, ingredients and cooking for a fair price. Given that I believe Chinese is the only food worthy of note in Vancouver. The rest is totally overhyped and overrated. Dinesty does a good job in spite of strong competition.

We were looking for a dim sum restaurant and were referred here. This is not a dim sum restaurant. The food was at par, best. Newly renovated, and with all the raves on their dumplings, we actually didn't enjoy them. Won't recommend or be back.

Yes, they take reservations. And I recommend making one as it's a popular (and worth it) restaurant.
