Imperial Court: Best Valued Dim Sum in Richmond

As I have tried pretty much all the dim sum places in Richmond, Imperial Court is not exactly the fanciest place. If I am taking a friend from out-of-town out for a luxurious dim sum treat, I would go to Kirin or Empire Seafood. But if I want to have dim sum with my mom or some close friends, I always pick Imperial Court. Their quality is consistently solid, and the price is very reasonable.

My mom’s favourite is the deep fried taro dumplings with duck meat: crispy outside, fluffy inside, and bursting with flavours.But it is hard for me to pick a favourite dish. All the dumpling dishes are good here. The seafood and vegetables are always fresh. I never forget to ask for a a little plate of they specialty chilli oil, it just brightens everything up on your taste buds.

And they also offers rice and noodle dishes during dim sum hours for just $7.95 each, with generous portion. If you pay for you bill before 11am, you get 20% off.

  1. Hi,
    My family and I are visiting Vancouver for few days (from LA).
    We are looking for cantonese food especially dim sum and your blog has helped a lot with our choices – Thank you.
    Is Imperial Court closed now (for good)?

    If that’s not the case, would you please post the address so we can put it on our food itinerary.

    THank you

      Hi Angie!

      I just called them and they are still in Business! The host lady was shocked that I asked them if they had closed down. I’d better email Urbanspoon and let them know someone made a mistake or someone was being NAUGHTY!

      And thanks for reading my blog and I’m glad it helps. Imperial Court is definitely good for the price. You need to call one hour in advance to reserve a table. And you get extra 10% off for your orders made before 11am. Also they have a few items that were only offered before 11am too. Love their rice or noodle specials during dim sum…. HUGE portions and all for only $7.95 each.

      Have fun in Vancouver! ­čÖé
