On my recent trip to Vancouver, I was actually with family and as a result I not visited Chinatown on a tourist trek, but I actually ate somewhere in the area. Not Kent's like the last time, as this time, I was on a mission...More

I am so glad this place still is open in Chinatown. The bakery items are really good and fresh. This time I choose the ham and green onion buns as easy lunch items for tomorrow. You can order customized cakes in advance.

Maxim's consistently offers a great selection of Chinese pastries in a clean setting. My brother ordered a Black Forest like fresh fruit cake for our dad's birthday.

enjoyed the egg tarts and napoleons although I think the napoleons could do with a bit more cream. Egg tarts could be be a little browner but nice and tasty with flaky crust

Don't bother with the restaurant upstairs unless you want to wait awhile. You need to get a number but that doesn't mean you will get seated by number. Several people arrived after we did and were seated before us. We were literally the last ones...More
