Grand Lake Dim Sum Chinese Restaurant
Posted by Holly on 08/25/2014
5 other adults and I , (who eat out consistently and like to try new places& foods), ordered 9 apps and 6 different main courses to share- ate there last night and it was the most unappetizing food we've experienced. The tofu had a watery pudding texture. The duck was inedible . The chicken had veins and a non desirable taste even the shrimp balls tasted like bologna . It was weird. There is no way what authentic Asian taste like. It was like low quality iron chef meets a slummy retirement home food.

Grew up in NYC Chinatown, so no surprise that I'd look for a local place that reminds me of my youth. Food is as close as it gets to memories. Oh yeah, the dirt on the floor and the walls... so-so service... that is the same too. For those who haven't eaten at the many smaller dim sum places in NYC, SF, Vancouver - they may be taken aback at some of the lackadaisical aplomb of this restaurant. For me, it feels and resembles a lot of what I remember from growing up. It's no secret you'll find this is where a lot of the local Asian population swing by for dim sum. The food is authentic, but so is the less-than American casual dining atmosphere. For the food, great place to go... for something more... maybe not the best.

Most authentic food in the area! Has all the regular American fake food and a real Cantonese menu with cuttlefish, dim sum to die for, and hanging ducks! Grumpy staff and so so surroundings don't detract from the killer food.

Well I am a blue blood lucky enough to have married a wonderful Asian woman. Over the years I have tasted a good many dishes. Dim Sum is quite the surprise to me. Not the saucy greasy food you find in a typical Chinese restaurant. It truly tasted delicious. And that is coming From a Steak & Potato guy! So give the place a try.

We order from this restaurant and the food is consistently good. We have no problems with service. Definitely, recommended.

This restaurant got our order completely wrong when we checked out. When we were trying to tell them what we ordered they constantly interrupted me while I was speaking. In the end, they still got out order wrong! This was the poorest service I have even received in my life. Never returning again.

I believe in 2nd chances but that is why the saying, " no good deeds goes unpunished..." applies to this place. I ordered from the dim sum paper menu the wonton soup which said $7.95. When I got the bill, I was charged $9.95. I asked the girl who I think is the manager/owner why the price discrepancy, she said that is the wrong price printed on the dim sum menu. She showed me another dinner menu the full price. I said that was not the menu I was given. Even the waitress who took my order brought the dim sum menu to show the mgt but she insisted on charging me the full price! I told her she cannot give her customer a menu w/ the wrong price and then charge them more and expect they will pay. She just kept saying, "its not my fault, the menu is the wrong price..." She was rude, apathetic, and I will not be going back here. Every review discussing the service is true about this place.
