    Best thing to get is the xiao long bao aka XLB aka delicious steamed pork soup dumplings. They have several varieties. Be careful when removing them from the steamer, you don't want to lose the broth!

    No Din Tai Fung? No problem. Delicious dumplings with authentic hot and sour soup. The portion was perfect with its price. Come later at night so the wait is not crazy. Love the open kitchen!

    Highly recommend the pork soup dumplings. You can watch these being made out front if you need to wait for a table. Menu has a wide range of entrees as well

    Very authentic Chinese cuisine, with reasonable prices. Services are a bit slow due to how busy they are. There are many interesting dishes that I would go back again to try.

    The xlbs were not juicy enough (compared to DTF). I do like the pork, shrimp, scallops stuffing though; unique flavors. Green onion pancake is worth getting too.

    Soup dumplings are the best!! Most things on menu are great. The hot and sour soup is not that good though. It had a slimy consistency :s

    XLB is a must, and they have a stamp card for it! Also try their pork wrap, beef rolls, or spicy dumplings.

    Super fast service as they are trying to turn tables. Avoid the set lunch menus and order from their big menu!

    Best XLB in Vancouver. Don't sleep on the pan fried pork buns either.

    Soup dumplings are smaller and pricier than for instance, NYC Chinatown.

    Just go with dumplings and buns. Delicious. The rest is too sophisticated for me

    Get the XLB. Soup filled dumplings. Beef noodle soup is a bit bland for my liking

    Soup dumplings were decent. Beef roll was tasty, but on the smaller side. Overall, it was ok, but perhaps not worth the long wait.

    Trust them if they tell you to wait 30-40 minutes.

    Xiao Long Bao is the highlight dish. But not as good as Din Tai Fung, as not enough soup inside.

    I ordered the dumpling soup, but I didn’t find any soup... a bit disappointing
