We had a fine meal here as a family. We didn’t want to travel to Richmond as we didn’t have a car with us. Service was very nice. The restaurant was almost empty.

Would not recommend this for dinner. The BBQ pork and roast were not up to standard for a Chinese restaurant. Happened to locate this while in Chinatown and was given to understand that most good Chinese restaurants in Vancouver are in Richmond.

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.
Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian
