This is one of the better, higher quality dimsum places in Richmond. We've been here many times. Its busy and attracts alot of customers. They turn over customers quickly as is the Chinese way. So don't expect good service. Some/many employees do not speak English. I would give this place a higher rating if they would just improve the service... More

The lady first told us we are next as waiting for table to leave as they have paid. After 15 mins, then she told us that they are cleaning... More

This is a nice Dim Sum restaurant in a nice environment. Prices are a little high compared to other restaurants in the area. Be sure you don't park longer than 3 hours or you will be sure to get a ticket!

Good dimsum at this place, though it's definitely more expensive than the out of the way locations like East River or Cindy's Palace. Interesting to note that the congee here is huge and is definitely enough to fill two people so it's a great choice if you're looking for non-rice fillers!

It was a few steps from the hotel we stayed, and was recommended by the hotel staff. We were there around 5:30pm without reservation- the restaurant was nearly empty. We were told if they could make a table for us - what??? Not many customers were in this specious restaurant. We wonder what they were talking about. They could manage... More

This busy restaurant uses a ticket system, so the dim sum dishes arrive fresh from the kitchen. A;We were able to get a large table after a 10-15 minute wait and the service staff helped get extra tea, water, condiments at a reasonable pace for a place with full seating. All the dishes were quite tasty and we took what... More

Good basic dim sum. This location is relatively new ( a year or two or so, they used to be across the way where Parklane Chinese Restaurant is) so the interiors are nice and new and bright. So many Chinese restaurants wait too long to renovate like their sister restaurant Empire Chinese Cuisine on Alexandria. Food was good, still think... More

We had dim sum and arrived at 9am when the restaurant opens. By 9:15 the restaurant was full yet somehow they managed to serve excellent dim sum efficiently. The har gow and sui mai were excellent. Chicken feet and woo gok were pretty good. It's a very nice upscale restaurant with convenient parking.

Established in 2004, Empire Seafood Restaurant was originally located at 200-7997 Westminster highway in Richmond. The success of the original restaurant brought another 7000 sq ft Empire Chinese Cuisine in 2006. In 2012, the Empire Seafood Restaurant was relocated to a new, lavishly decorated location where 300+ guests can enjoy the extravagant dishes that Empire is known for. This new location is not only grand, but centrally located in bustling central Richmond , nearby Richmond Centre Skytrain station.
