This place has been around for as long as I can remember, and the last time I was here was probably 7-8 years ago. All I remember from that visit was great cheesecake, but terrible ambience and lighting. From our most recent visit, this place has certain changed.

Empire Seafood - another place for dim sum

Unit 200, 5951 No.3 Rd, Richmond

Food: 3
Service: 3.5

Picking up someone from the airport has always warrant a visit to Richmond either before or after. Since we were picking up my mom from a early flight, that means dim sum was our only option. We actually tried Empire Seafood previously for a wedding, and did enjoy their banquet style food. So once again we went back to try their dim sum.
