Grand Dynasty Seafood Restaurant

Grand Dynasty Seafood Restaurant is an upscale Chinese restaurant located in the Grand Villa Casino. The restaurant is nicer than most Chinese restaurants in the area and the servers are attentive.

I came here with my friend Melissa before school to get some dim sum. I’m not aware of many good dim sum restaurants in Burnaby, but I thought this would be a safe bet.

BBQ Pork Rice Rolls

The BBQ pork rice rolls were our favourite item of the meal. I’ve never come across BBQ pork rice rolls and I normally just have beef or shrimp ones, but I enjoyed these more than the rice rolls I’ve had in the past.

The BBQ pork had a more pronounced flavour that you could actually taste and it was mixed up with some green onions and other spices.

Shrimp Dumplings

The shrimp dumplings were well executed and not too sticky. The size of them was pretty small, but taste wise they were good.

Pan-Fried Radish Cake

Whenever I get dim sum I try to order one new item that I’ve never had before and this time that was pan-fried radish cakes.

I ended up liking these more than I thought I would. They have a unique flavour, but were pretty mild and starchy. I liked the chewy bouncy texture of the cake and the crisp outside.

Shrimp, Pork, and Mushroom Dumplings

The shrimp, pork, and mushroom dumplings were tasty and presented nicely. Like the shrimp dumplings, these were smaller in size than less upscale dim sum places.

Deep Fried Taro Dumpling With Minced Pork

We ordered the deep fried taro dumpling with minced pork thinking they would be something different, but these were good and I’m glad I got to try them.

I liked the contrast between the crunchy flakey outside coating and the warm, saucy, pork filling.

All of the food from Grand Dynasty was satisfying and fresh. The prices here are steeper than many dim sum places in Metro Vancouver, but the ambiance is also much fancier and there really isn’t much competition in Burnaby.

Recommendation:

Yes, for nice, but expensive dim sum.
