Good service and awesome food

We love this restaurant. The peking duck was amazing. We go often. When we order too much, the server would advise me not to as I can always order some more later if needed. I really appreciate his good service. Lot of free parking. The only thing is the distance I don't like because I don't live... read more

Very fancy layout as soon as you walk through the door, the right hand side there is a small but cozy section for you to enjoin your drink before dinner. This is BC (New Westminster, BC), I am sure this restaurant cater wealthy people :). Service: this is the best I have ever got in any Chinese restaurant over the... More

We are repeat clients of the Kirin group in the lower mainland and have been to this particular location on multiple occasions previously. Today, 3 days after the New Year, there was a most unusual lapse in service that left us shaking our heads. We reserved a table for two at 11:30am and arrived at 11:20. Lots of people waiting...

Went here with friends of the family who eat here all the time. They knew all the servers and manager by name. Probably accounts for why we had such attentive service, but too me, it was a bit much since they changed our plates out at least 8 times. The food itself is quite tasty and good, fresh ingredients. However,... More

My first dim sum. Had shrimp dumplings, curry octopus, beef rice roll, noodles. Food was good but even with reservations, took forever to be seated so don't show up without a reservation. I will come again because dim sum cannot be fully experienced in one visit.

The good: - convenient; in the same building as the Casino - clean...not your usual Chinese restaurant where the washrooms stink! - service is attentive but lacking in empathy The meh: - expected more in taste and at least a bit more portion. - something is wrong when the complementary dessert tapioca gives you more serving than the soup you...

This Kirin restaurant is next to the Starlight Casino. Had a big party of 20. Picked a 9 course set menu with Roast pig, lobester, chicken etc. for 2 tables. The toast pig is so good and is on par with the best ones in Hong Kong. Other dishes also live up to the 'Kirin' standard. By the way, the... More

We were here for a business dinner for 6, we were looked after by numerous hosts & servers, they never missed a beat from serving the food portions to refilling drinks, and picking up the occaisional dropped napkin. The food was very good and reflected market pricing .. overall it was a good experience.

The food is good - no problem there. We go to this restaurant quite often. But last two times when my husband and I went there, the wait time for food was 1.5 hours!!! They sit you, and then you just wait for a dish for 1.5 hours... They warn you about that saying that THIS evening they are busy,... More

It is the best restaurant for dim sum in Vancouver and the décor is very classy. But it is quite far away from town. There is another Kirin in Richmond which is closer. It is a bit pricy but worth the money spent.
