Not likely unless it is super bad ones.

Dim sum is only served for brunch and lunch.

I believe HKYK serves dim sum at all hours but I haven't been there in over 5 years.

Which places would you recommend?

Dai Tung and Po King, like everybody else recommended in this thread but only because you get to be treated like a farm animal.

Ain't that the truth. I won't need to experience it anymore as these 2 places are on my banned list but once upon a time I used to always go to Dai Tung.

Can't get around this if one is cheap (I would know LOL) but if you're willing to pay a bit more, there are plenty of dim sum places in Vancouver where you can get good service. Kirin for example.

$2 dimsum ftw
haha, my folks also go here a lot. Food is alright but they're another one of those places that make you share tables with strangers.

I haven't been there in a while but didn't they have $1 chicken and rice at one time? I know they have the roasted pork and rice as well (but I'm guessing that was $2)

Last time I was at Dai Tung (which was over a year ago) two employees got into a heated shouting match - one female and one guy. The restaurant was dead silent for a good 2 minutes after that. Dai Tung (is/used to be) famous for their salted chicken dish. Not sure if it still is today or not.

^ Just because it's cheap doesn't mean you have to get treated like farm animals. Anyway, How's everyone doing?

i havent had a bad experience at dai tung yet, but i can understand why people feel that way.
places that push carts are kind of chaotic and since you dont really have servers, all you have is cart pushers to ask for stuff who dont really give a shit.
i was at po king a few weeks ago and thought their service was pretty shit. and the tables are just too close together.

Any cheap place is going to cram people in. They're trying to earn their money through volume so they're going to try crank through as many people as possible and skimp on service. I'd venture to guess that the client base there don't really care that they get shitty service as long as the prices are cheap.
