Amazing food freshly prepared. Packed with families which is a good sign. I stayed in one of the nearby Airport hotel for three weeks and ate here with friends three times.

Friends took us to Shanghai River for dim sum and it was excellent! Food was delicious and service was very good. Our friends had preordered the meal before we went and we enjoyed every bite!

This is my "go to" Chinese restaurant when I am in Vancouver. It's located in Richmond, near YVR airport. My favorites are: Shanghai dumpling, and lobster. I tired some noodle dishes also, but wasn't very impressed with those.
