“Comfortable Setting”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

With the many out of town guests during this summer, I decided to try the Grand Dynasty. Since I am on a vegan-no oil diet, I was very pleased to note the many vegetarian dishes on their menu. Although many of the vegetarian dishes were deep fried or sauteed, I was able to find a few dishes for my restricted diet. The selection overall for the restaurant was great for the dim sum as well as the evening dinner.

Overall, the ambience was what made the restaurant enjoyable. The high ceiling made talking around the table once again audible for everyone. There are just far too many restaurants in Vancouver where it is getting very difficult to have a conversation over dinner. The tables were spaced apart and had very large chairs making the seating that much more enjoyable.

The staff was accomodating and even took the time to open the door for my mother in law when they spotted her entering the restaurant in a wheelchair.

We have returned for many visits during this summer. The prices in the restaurant are a little more pricey than most of the Chinese restaurants in Burnaby but well worth it.

“Top notch”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

This is a high end authentic chinese food restaurant. And yes the prices on some of the seafood specialty items will reflect that as well. I had dinner here on a business trip, but wished I could have been there during a dim sum session...I am sure it would have been worth it. So I just had the basic dinner for 1, which was still very good. The hot and sour soup came in a great little "bowl".

“Great service and Great Quality”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

If you don't want to travel to Richmond or Vancouver to eat Chinese, Grand Dynasty has been our #1 choice for Dim Sum and dinner. The plates and dim sim items are a bit more, but it's worth it. You don't feel like you've eaten greasy or food with lots of MSG. The service, especially from manager, Simon, is fantastic. You may have to wait a little bit more and it's because their food is always made fresh to order and not pre-heated. We've taken our friends who've never tried Dim Sum before and they loved the experience.

“Dim-sum....like a Chinese secret”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

Dim sum...Chinese lunch that has small bowls of bamboo steamers laden with the most delectable goodness. For those that have never had dim-sum..it would be best if you took along someone that is comfortable with the process. I would think that it would be petty intimidating if you have no insights. Often too, the staff has trouble explaining what's what.

Vancouver has had a long love affair with dim-sum and it used to be only available in Chinatown. Now..it is to be found all over the lower mainland. The Grand Dynasty is one of the more expensive, but man oh man..it is good.
