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

The best part of this dinner was the food that we would never have tasted, had not a local, knowledgeable friend joined us and placed the order. The service was quick and careful. There was no attempt to rush the group, even though the restaurant was full.

Had dim sum here - very fresh and tasty. Bit pricey though.....each plate of dim sum was about C$5/-. Our measure of authenticity included 'Har gao', 'Siew mai', 'Sin jook kuen', 'Cha siew bao' and 'fun cheong'......the prawns were really fresh in the 'har gao' and 'fun cheong'. Texture of the 'fun cheong' was ok. The 'siew mai' was great.... More

This is by far the worst meal I have had. Honestly, it's astonishing to see that it's crowded with mostly Chinese clientele. The food is rubbish, made with the lowest quality ingredients. And I'm not impressed just because there's some fish roe or dried scallops sprinkled on top of the siew mai - it does not justify the pricey dim... More
