Foodology Disclaimer: I was invited by ChineseBites to try Grand Dynasty’s signature dishes with a few other bloggers. The service is not representative of their usual service since they knew we were coming.


Grand Dynasty

Grand Dynasty is located at the Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby. It is a popular location for Dim Sum, but a great place for dinners too. The prices are generally a tad higher than other Chinese restaurants in the area but pretty good place to dine.

Grand Dynasty

The interior is clean and there are lots of round tables available.

Grand Dynasty

Pan Fried Jumbo Prawn with Egg Yolk Sauce was my favorite since the sauce didn’t overpower the sweetness of the prawn.

Grand Dynasty

Pan Fried Jumbo Prawn with a house Spicy Sauce was a good sauce, but not my favorite prawn sauce. It wasn’t very spicy either.

Grand Dynasty

Boiled Live Lobster in Superior Broth comes with the lobster all cut up on a plate with bean sprout.

Grand Dynasty

They take the meat and then prepare it at your table till it’s all cooked.

Grand Dynasty

The broth was very had a great taste and a good addition to the meal.

Grand Dynasty

Baked Chicken stuffed with Sea Cucumber looks like a regular chicken on the outside, but all the sea cucumber is hidden.

Grand Dynasty

Once you cut through the skin, the sea cucumber is revealed. I’ve never had sea cucumber, so I was very intrigued to see how it would taste. The duck fat really marinated the sea cucumber to give it a great taste.

Grand Dynasty

Live Jumbo Ling Cod Fish Hot Pot was a good dish, but I didn’t particularly love it since I don’t really like the flavour combination of sweet and salty together.

 Grand Dynasty

Sautéed Green Vegetable & Wild Mushroom with an arrangement of pumpkin and winter melon. I loved the mushrooms!

Grand Dynasty

Deep Fried Crispy Chicken with Sticky Rice

Grand Dynasty

It  was a very interesting dish with layers of sticky rice and crispy chicken. I thought it was alright, but was a unique dish.

Grand Dynasty

Live Lobster & Seafood with Crispy Rice in Soup was probably one of my favorite dishes.

Grand Dynasty

The crispy rice that is added to the soup makes a *snap* *crackle* *pop* sound as it is added in. It had a great aroma of lobster!

Grand Dynasty

Shredded Coconut Creamy Tart came at the end of the meal.

Grand Dynasty

Black Sesame & Coconut Layer Cake came at the end too. I loved this jello.

Overall, I’ve had pretty good experiences in the past at Grand Dynasty. The service and food is still pretty good.  Whether its dim sum or just a dinner, you can’t go wrong here.
