VERY GOOD SUCKLING PIG

Ordered a 'Suckling Pig Dinner' in advance. Went with my relatives and their Suckling Pig is very good: lean and without fat! We were a party of 11 and there was such much food that we have to use many 'doggy bags'. Drank 5 bottles of wine and they charged C$30 total for corkage! Everyone had a... read more

A friend and I decided to go without a reservation first thing in the morning. We were immediately ushered to a table for 4, and brought menus and jasmine tea. The restaurant is quite large, and tastefully decorated. There were 5 or 6 other tables occupied at that time. It quickly began to fill. There were 3 menus, but only... More

Kirin is one of the top high end Chinese restaurants. We visited it several times now, mostly for dim sum. Yes the price is on the expensive side but the taste is worth it. The restaurant is huge but always busy. Even when it's full housed, it does not feel crowded. I especially love their BBQ pork buns, tender and... More

We order take-out from here regularly, the food is absolutely superior! We have never had chicken as tasty as the "Deep-fried Crispy skin Chicken" here. the seafood is delicious, and very well prepared, the difference here is that the food is light, not heavy, or greasy at all, dishes are laden with meat and exquisitely prepared vegetables, the balance of...

We visited Kirin for lunch during a business trip. Kirin has a great feel and decor, the serving staff are efficient, courteous and friendly and made excellent menu choices for the group. The food was served promptly, was hot and very well presented and also delicious! This is unlike any Chinese food I have ever eaten and I have to... More

We have eaten there for lunch and dinner. Excellent dim-sum, fresh and good, good translation of the English version menu, if you cannot read Chinese, it is not going to be an issue. Their set dinner menu is good too, we have many family dinners there. My girlfriend held her wedding reception and the service and food was outstanding. Reservation... More

I was here the second time with friends and we all were very satisfied. The Orkin duck is excellent and there is an amazing assortment of seafood available. The service is efficient and good.

Our friends wanted to make a donation at the Starlight Casino so we decided to have dinner at the Kirin which is located in the same complex. All the Kirin restaurants offer the same ambience, food and service so there's not too much to comment upon other than to mention that anyone will enjoy the experience of dining at Kirin.... More

I'm quite surprised by the negative reviews. Kirin is our favourite dim sum spot in Greater Vancouver. Although there are several Kirin restaurants in the Lower Mainland, the Starlight Casino location is our favourite because it's so spacious and parking is not an issue (unlike the downtown and Richmond locations). Kirin is a high-end Chinese restaurant, and it is very... More

My husband and I came here for dinner a baby banquet. The food was average, but pricey. The service was passable - don't expect attentive servers. I was very disappointed with the ladies washroom. One of the stalls looked like a war zone with tissue paper every where, and the remaining stalls were not very clean. I was very grossed... More
