What stopped me from giving 4 stars is the sour puss faced waitress who asked us if we were unhappy with the service since we left only a $10 tip. She said it should be at least 10%. I dropped another $15, even though I...More

Chinese dim sum is a great way to spend brunch, especially with out-of-town guests who appreciate ethnic cuisine. Red Star Seafood Restaurant offers all the standard favourites like shrimp dumplings (har how), pork dumplings (siu mai), rice rolls, bbq pork buns, egg tarts, etc. -...More

This is a classic Chinese restaurant with every dish that you might expect. The squab is particularly good. They offer a variety of shark's fin dishes - it would be good if they stopped doing so. The service is efficient and friendly.

There is underground free parking for Red Star Restaurant but park only at the stalls that marked Red Star patrons parking only. Otherwise, the fines are ridiculous expansive. Hope this is useful.
