Floata Seafood Restaurant: Dim Sum! Yum!
We happend upon this place after asking a few shop owners in Chinatown, what was the best place for dim sum. If you don't know about it, you won't find it. It's on the second floor of a small mall. As soon as we sat down we were swarmed by servers showing us the dishes they had. We didn't have to wait at all. The dining room is huge. We went on a Friday morning and the place was packed. Great place for groups. Most of the dishes were $2.38. Can't beat that!
Favorite Dish: Sticky chicken rice, pork shu mai, shrimp dumplings.
Floata Seafood Restaurant: Great Dim Sum
This place is located on the upper floor of a small shopping mall in the heart of Vancouver's Chinatown. The restaurant itself is massive - it can be rented for functions of up to 1000 people. It's a popular spot for dim sum, which is what I went for. The menu is extensive and has authentic Chinese fare, not the westernized junk a lot of places serve. The service isn't what I would call friendly, but certainly efficient. The food was very well done and enjoyable. It was also reasonably priced, so overall I found it to be a satisfying dim sum.
Favorite Dish: Pork sticky buns are really good... and for someone who doesn't like shellfish, the shrimp rolls were particularly good.

Floata Seafood Restaurant: chaotic dimsum experience
This is Canada's largest Chinese restaurant, with the capacity to seat more than 1000 people.
They have a full menu, but most people gather here on weekends for the dim sum.
It's quite the chaotic experience, and if you are not assertive enough you are probably not going to get what you want and will be waiting for ages to eat. You have to be loud, brash, and sometimes even mean...depending on how service is that day.
But it's worth it. They have an extensive dim sum selection, all very good.
