Chinese restaurant in Kerrisdale
There are not a lot of Chinese eatery options in the neighbourhood of Kerrisdale, so Golden Ocean Seafood Restaurant occupies a popular niche in the neighbourhood. Located right on West 41st Avenue and near the main intersection of East Boulevard, this second floor restaurant serves up a dim sum style menu.
Dim sum specialist
Golden Ocean Seafood Restaurant offers its Cantonese-style dim sum menu on pushcarts that are rolled by each table, allowing customers to pick and choose the dishes of their choice. Specialties like prawn mousse, shrimp balls and seafood dumplings are taken hot off the cart, and more unusual dishes are also served (think lobster and chicken feet). There’s usually a percentage discount if you arrive during the off hours.
The best tip for eating at this restaurant is to arrive before peak times. The place fills up quickly and line ups are not uncommon. Saying that, the turnover is quite quick. Not all of the servers speak English, so be prepared to do some old-fashioned pointing and nodding. Golden Ocean Seafood Restaurant is packed with tables, so don’t expect an intimate dining atmosphere. For large groups, ask about the package menus, which include a set price for everyone.
