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

Very authentic Asian seafood. My friend had the butter-cream lobster and it was absolutely saturated with the cream sauce. I Probably a little too authentic for us!

Came here for my birthday for a good fancy dinner! Was decent but a tad pricey, we ended up paying around $200 for 4 people. I was disappointed by the jellyfish cold dish. The crab was a tad overcooked.

We went with friends to the Kirin and we were so impressed. As soon as you walked in you were greeted with professionalism and courtesy. Elegant table settings with 'real' linen, proper silverware, nice large tables and attentive staff. We let our friends order for our table of 8 as that is their culture and we had dishes we'd never... More

We went to Kirin to treat ourselves to a 8 pound King Crab. After being presented with the chosen one my partner decided on how she wanted it prepared. Next it was off to the kitchen to be transformed into three splendid dishes; the legs marinated with a chili and garlic sauce, half the meat fried and the other half... More

We've enjoyed dimsum up and down the West Coast of the United States, some of the best are in BC, at Kirin's in Richmond. The food is fresh and is not as greasy as dim sum in the Seattle area. It is a bit harder to order because they are not carted around, but from a menu! We love just... More

We come from Seattle where the experience or quality of food is nothing like Richmond. Any restaurant we walk into can be a new one for us therefore. The restaurant was packed the night we came in (all Chinese - we are not). Very impressive! We had no idea what to order as we were not familiar with the menu... More

Great place to eat some chinese. Very nice inside restaurant and attentive staff. It was pretty pricey, but recommended if you want some really good food.

Best dim sum. You know it is going to be good when see that every one else is Chinese and the place is full. If you don't book a table at lunchtime, you will have to wait.
