There isn't much left in this City. This is the best place for dim sum and you will find variety in it. Also they have other foods on the menu for lunch or dinner. The service is quick in a traditional style you have your host, cashier, waitresses and servers. You are never left long with dirty dishes. I really... More

The food was fantastic!! Some of the best Dim Sum we've had in Calgary. Great service and friendly staff. A very nice experience for us. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Just go early; parking lot and restaurant fill up fast on the weekends. We had two adults and three children (Ages 6, 4, 2) and we had probably about... More

Dropped in with a group last Sunday. Needed a dim sum fix. Arrived at 11:00 and had to wait 15 mins for a table. The place was packed. Food was hot and very fresh. Overall the food is of very high quality, but be prepared to pay premium dollars. The place was very noisy!!

I went today for dim sum and also ordered a beef noodle dish. The first dim sum dish was only 3 pieces and to my surprise almost six dollars. I realized that I wasn't going to be able to afford the usual 12 dishes for two people. I ordered a beef and fried noodle dish, that was 16 dollars, that's... More

Good dim sum in Calgary. The restaurant was very busy on a Wednesday brunch. That means more fresh food that comes around. Very good variety of everything. Service is typical of any Chinese dim sum place. Curt and to the point...what else would you expect from a true Chinese restaurant. Food was tasty all around.

$6/average for a plate of dim sum, cold food, impatient and extremely rude servers, 24/7 in your face forcing some food or other onto your table, dark sketchy atmosphere, owner looking like he's about to take a long hike off a short cliff. And this is me being generous. Go spend your money elsewhere, you don't need this negativity in... More

The fact that Dim Sum at Cenral Grand is busy 7days a week tells you how good it is! We eat fish and other seafoods, but no other meats; we were able to find lots of options and get our fill. This was my 4th time going here, but a first for my husband and kids; first ever dim sum... More
