Went there as a group for dinner and ordered the set menu, the food was great but service was actually too quick, we had barely finished one dish before the next was in front of us. The lobster in cream was nice but dessert was a bit boring. Found that if you want a long leisurely dinner this might not... More

Kirin Seafood Restaurant is as good as the best in Hong Kong. Kirin was recommended by a local merchant as the best Chinese restaurant in Richmond, and even in Vancouver. Service was attentive and helpful. I ordered the black cod dish, which came with three small fried fillets and sauce. Although it was delicious it would have been much better... More

It is 3:30 am as I write this and my dinner from tonight (6 pm) still has not digested and I am awake! How the heck did I get food poisoning from fried food??? This Kirin location should be the best as it is very large and usually quite busy. After 2 poor experiences, I can now say that it... More

Just remember to make a decision. Large number of choice for you to choose from and they switch their menu every few month. Service is quick and friendly.

When you need a default Chinese restaurant to go to, Kirin has always been one of the best choices, especially for large groups. They have a number of restaurants in the Vancouver area and the Richmond location is an icon there. There are probably more exotic and edgier places, but for elegance and food quality, Kirin has always been a... More

Poor reception and service. Open time at 11:00. Arrived at 11:05. No table? Really? Told to come back at 2pm. No eye contact. Got yelled at. Worst Kirin around.

Dim sum is great particularly the prawn dumpling (har gau) and the durian mochi if you are ok with the smell of durian. However the place is crowded and noisy. Don't expect much service. There is this captain, an older man, who never smiles or great anyone. Avoid him! Other than that food is good. Must make reservation otherwise you... More

It was the best Chinese restaurant I ever tried. My family had Kirin special chow mein, Kirin special fried rice, hot and sour soup, shrimp shumai and two different dim sum. All the sea food dishes were so fresh and delicious.

We have not been there for a while and we came back to this famous restaurant on Sunday and the queue is not long as we thought. We booked a table for 3 by phone and we got in right through. The food and service is really good as it has been - we know they have won the food... More
