“Excellent Neighborhood Dim Sum”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Golden Ocean Seafood is consistently good dim sum choice tucked away in a second floor location on 41st in the retail area of the Kerrisdale Neighborhood of Vancouver. The food and service is always excellent and it's an easy place to park on the street and feed the meter.
Best time to go is before or after the noon time rush 12-2.

“It's always our 1st for Dim Sum in Vancouver”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Our family of 3 have been going to G/O for more than a decade. We always try to arrive early. They serve off the hot carts ( HK style ) so there is always a delicious choice circullating the room. Service is swift, well managed and food choices are wide variation and always delicious. We have not been for dinner (evening) but I can see from the menu specials that there is a wide range of seafood and some speciality dishes of interest ... maybe try the snake soup ???
Can honestly say this is good value for your $$. Not expensive by any measure but ALWAYS top quality. Room fills quickly after 10:15 am on weekends and always the 20% discount if you order before 11:00 am. Full Menu items available after 11:00 am. There is no dish that disappoints ! However, don't be disappointed that they DO NOT prepare Xiaoloong Bao. We go to the new Dynesty on Robson for that option.

“Been missing my Oakridge dim sum... until now!!”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

There are lots of places to go for good dim sum in Vancouver and I'm happy to find yet another option. A recent trip satisfied all my needs - excellent, fresh dim sum, with quick tableside service with carts (ala hong kong) and priced very competitively. It was the perfect dim sum experience. We shared 6 different dishes and all of them rocked.

“Superb Food and Service”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

This Chinese restaurant has superb food and great service. The crab with black bean sauce, though expensive, is great. The lemon chicken was also great, and so were the prawn wontons. The seafood is absolutely fresh, with prawns and crabs plucked live from tanks. You cannot ask for better Chinese food. The atmosphere is pleasantly noisy with Chinese families having a socially friendly good time. We highly recommend this restaurant. Go during the week nights when it's less busy.

“good price, good food, a bit noisy for conversation”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

We have been to this restaurant a number of times and always enjoyed the dim sum, especially during the weekend. The food is good and reasonably priced. The service is prompt. It is a good idea to make a reservation before going. Also, if you go on Saturday morning before 11 am (they open at 10 am), you get 20% off, which is quite decent. For free parking, try the street perpendicular to 41st Avenue to the east of the restaurant; you may have to go quite a bit south to find a parking spot if you do not want to pay for parking metres.
