House of Banquets, new dimsum place

On the way to our usual dimsum joint Tong Palace (Clement/11th Av), we were waylaid by a grand opening of a new place right next door! It was a cheesy "art" gallery a few weeks ago (and King of China before that?) but now outfitted as a glitzy Chinese dinner/banquet destination. Downstairs is dinner set up for hot pots. Dim sum is served upstairs, a huge room. Lots of personnel, lots of carts, and lots of mirrors and gold lame. Food was surprisingly good to excellent for all the usuals. Duck was bland and fatty, and such a meager portion, the only real disappointment. Small to "kitchen specials" run $1.95 - 4.95/plate.
