Green Island on 64 Ave NW?

Has anyone been to Green Island? It used to be a Pizza Hut. Thinking of going there to celebrate Chinese New Year.

    Went there for dim sum a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised. They put a TON of shrimp in their dumplings, far more than the "usual". Lots of selection, quick service even though it was packed to the gills, and the prices were very reasonable.

        I've been there for dim sum/lunch. Not too bad. I really like the congee though.

          I havent' gone for supper. But tried their dim sum a few months ago.
          The dim sum was decent . . .but they used way too much msg
          you can bascially taste the msg in each piece and the aftermath of you having to chug litres of water prove that they did.

          I went there a few weeks after opening, it was pretty good. Nothing amazing but decent for the upper NE.
