      If Coquitlam or New Westminster is not too far for you, try Kirin, its a tad pricey but they do dim sum really well.

          Luxe is a difinite choice. A bit pricier than most chinese places in the area but you'll notice the difference right away. It's true chinese cuisine, not the westernized canadian version. Dim sum is great and if you go for dinner, order the peking duck. They serve it tableside.

            I have been meaning to try this at Luxe. Carving tableside is quite a show.

            gourmet_wife...do you know of any other places that serves it tableside? This question comes up regularly.

              Previously Renfrew Dim Sum did serve it table side, the manager there was very efficient when it came to carving the duck. Now that it's renovated and now renamed Beng Sheng, I'm not sure if they still offer this. I'll keep an eye out for any others.

                I hear they still do a good Peking duck...so I'm hoping they haven't changed in this regard.

          I have not been to this place, but it's probably worth checking out:
