Good place for dim sum. Lots of variety and the servings are ample. If you go during the week , you get a discount. They have a small parking lot, but there is usually some parking on the street.

Cindy's Palace has great dimsum and dinner choices. The food is tasty and cooked the old Cantonese way for many dishes. The prices are reasonable with special discounts for dimsum and dinner.The photo menu reassures you what ordered is what you would expect.

First Vancouver Dim Sum experience and it was great! They had a large selection to choose from and the food was excellent! It is definitely a place I would recommend for those looking for some authentic Dim Sum while in the Vancouver area!

I visited Cindy's Palace with a couple of co-workers for lunch on a weekday. We had one person in our group who speaks Chinese, so she ordered the dishes for us. While the food was good, especially the shrimp dumplings, the service could be quite slow at times as well as payment at the cashier. There is a special at... More

There is no other restaurant that gets me more excited than Cindy's Palace. The first time we went there we had no idea what to expect, it blew us away! Everything I have eaten here has been outstanding. The dumplings are exceptional, great sticky rice balls, clams in black bean sauce (is one of my favorites) and the seafood is... More

Unlike most Chinese restaurants Cindy's doesn't close in the afternoon between 3 to 5 PM and they serve dim sum until they close. The entrance to the restaurant is not welcoming and on the cramped side, and what can I say about the stacks of dishes (an odd place for dishes). Once inside, the decor is plain. We ordered spicy...

Being a vegetarian i really enjoyed the variety of dishes and all the sauces available. This was a birthday celebration for my Italian boyfriends mother so these people are serious eaters! Black bean Crab, Spicy prawns & Singapore noodles . The noodles were more on the dry side than greasy , just curry flavoured perfectly. I didn't eat the honey... More

The boss/wife loves Dim Sum so we thought we would give Cindys Palace a try. First impression, clean & neat. Ordered five items from their menu. The deep fried squid was tender and delicious. All items were generous portions and priced comparative to other Chinese restaurants. Found all dim sum items to be fresh, hot and tasty. Their everyday takeout... More

This is a great place for authentic Chinese food. The dim sun is very good and if you choose to order off the regular menu there is a great selection of items. The squid appetizer is the best anywhere in town - always fresh and never overcooked. Prices are reasonable and the size of the plates are very large. Service... More
