Looking for some good dimsum to share with friends? Look no further. Try Shanghai River. Be forewarned that it would be advised to make a reservation or be prepared to stand in a long line up. Location is 7831 Westminster Hwy., BC, Canada.

Good selection of Shanghai-style dim sum. The stir fried rice cakes (Nian Gao) are soft and chewy but a little too greasy. Soup dumplings (Xialongbao) are light and tasty - very excellent. Service was quick and efficient. Environment is clean and elegant, very busy restaurant....More

We were there on Christmas for dinner, glad it was open on a holiday. The restaurant space is elegant and fun. We were grateful to get in without a reservation— there were enormous round tables set up for large families that were having a good...More

I do not have that information, but as someone suggested you may want to call the restaurant and ask.
