If you are around the Richmond area and you are hungry and seafood is an option for you, then I suggest to visit this place at least once. The food variety was great, the price is a little bit high but it definitely worth for...once time visitMore
Most times there is ample off street parking. Tin Tin is a popular restaurant for dim sum so understandably it is always busy during the mornings on the weekends. The gar gow are especially nice. If you're no squeamish be adventurous and try the chicken...feet, they really are delicious.More
Tin Tin Seafood Harbour is a popular dim sum restaurant that we’ve been meaning to try for a long time (but the large early morning crowds have always detracted us in the past). We finally managed to pay them a visit in late June.
The...menu pricing here is a bit confusing as they use a bunch of different letters to denote different price points (whatever happened to just small, medium, and large?). In any case, the first item up was the Chinese Donut Rice Rolls ($7.99 – K) topped with pork floss. The Chinese donut on the inside had a crispness to the outside but was a bit chewy on the inside.
Next was the Deep Fried Buns ($5.29 S). While it’s served with condensed milk for dipping, this differs from the deep fried silver thread buns which have the soft fluffy layers on the inside. Still, can’t really complain about a deep fried bun.
We really enjoyed the Bean Curd Sheets with Pork ($6.29 M) as the pork filling turned out really nice with the slivers of water chestnuts.
The Scallop Truffle Dumpling ($7.29 XL) had a fair amount of shrimp underneath the scallop but I’d say this dish wasn’t my favourite. The shrimp wasn’t too bouncy to the bite and despite the truffle on top, it lacked the truffle aromatics.
Finally, we had the Steamed Beef Balls ($6.59 L) which turned out pretty good.
Overall, most of the food items were okay but the prices tended to be on the higher end of the spectrum. That said, our tea was free and we also had a discount on the dim sum so that made it reasonable. The thing that’s a turn-off here is how busy it gets on the weekend.More
was there 2pm on a sunday for dim sum. as usual the parking lot was packed for dim sum/lunch. and as usual when we finished about 3;30pm parking lot was 75% empty. we had dim sum. very good. i would return.
We had a business meeting here last night for 10 of us they cooked up the biggest Alaskan king crab I've ever seen in my life. When a great taste many other dishes to go with it the food was good the service was excellent...and the bijou was also good.More
Tin Tin is one of the few Chinese Restaurants that open at 9:00 AM for dim sum. The parking lot is adequate but not large. If one pays their bill by 11:30 AM there is a 20% discount. The seafood congee contains an abundance of...seafood. I would not recommend the har gow as we found it somewhat bland.More
This is a very good seafood restaurant, serving authentic Cantonese cuisine. The head chef is excellent, one of the best if not the best in Vancouver. He can make everything tasty. The dim sum at lunch could be improved. So until that happens, I'll go...for dinner.More
If you want to have dim sum at a restaurant that opens up at 9 AM, go to the Tin Tin Seafood Harbor located about five minutes away from the Vancouver Airport. I was here in October and had looked up Richmond Dim Sum Restaurants...that open early. By arriving around 8 30 we were third in line and got a table and our order in quickly. We were not disappointed and the Siu Mai, and other dumplings, and noodle dishes were excellent and ample. And between the exchange rate conversion difference and the 20 percent discount by finishing your meal before 11 30 AM, the place is quite reasonable. Would definitely return.More
This restaurant is one of the Chinese restaurants what offer dim sum that opens early. It's always preferable to arrive when the doors open so that you will find parking and also be seated at a table that is not beside a highway (a main...corridor). The dim sum offerings at the Tin Tin are as good as most Chinese restaurants in metro Vancouver and their prices are also comparable.More
