Grand Dynasty Seafood Restaurant 金殿皇朝
4331 Dominion Street, Burnaby
Price: Fair +
I been craving for dim sum for quite awhile now, so I decided to treat my parents (who also love dim sum) to Saturday brunch. Since I was playing badminton at 12pm in Burnaby, Grand Dynasty was the perfect choice for us.
Grand Dynasty is located right next to Grand Villa casino by Willingdon exit off Highway 1. Parking next to the restaurant is limited, but you can always park in the Casino parking lot. I have been meaning to check out this place ever since I found out it won the Best Dining Environment award. Count me impressed, the décor was indeed up scale and classy (sorry forgot to take some pictures). I especially loved their waiting area with nice lounge style furniture and glass wine wall.
On my 2nd visit, I tried a taro pastry ball dessert, it was so good I just had to share. In fact, it has now become my all time favourite dim sum dessert. If you like taro, definitely order this.
Service here was not bad, they were efficient and friendly. If you come after 11:30, be prepare to wait. However I think the wait time is still a lot better than Richmond restaurants on weekend. If you can pay before 11pm, they do have a 15% off incentive. As you can see we definitely like this place, as I've already been here twice. Their food is good and the décor is great, plus their location is just much more convenient for us.
