We had 11 family member went to this restaurant for their suckling pig special dinner. The food was authentic Cantonese served in Hong Kong banquet style. The suckling pig was excellent and the desserts were wonderful. The others dishes were good to great, ranging from double lobster, speciL saltedchicken, cod, vegetable, fried rice and noodles. The cost was near $600... More

I came here for a traditional Chinese 10 course meal for a wedding last month. They had sufficient waiters to serve over 25 tables of 10 people. What was extra special was the waiters even served each person individually as each dish came out. All the food was good except for the Bird's Nest soup which the smell of it... More

Kirin - at least the New Westminster location - never disappoints. It's a staple for our family for any family gatherings, holidays (ie: Mother's Day or Father's Day) and simply for great dim sum. Since the staff there know most of my family, we are always treated well. The recommendations they provide are honest and the staff just want you... More

I used to love this Kirin. But it has gone downhill in the last few years. The servers were extremely rude. When food arrived, the server just pushed our plates and cups around to make room. She was throwing things around and making lots of noises. Had to ask multiple times to get some hot sauce. When we were about... More

Larger family gathering was excellent; food with many dishes. Service was great and continuous. All ages accommodated in restaurant; granddaughter enjoyed fish tanks.

Have been here at least 10 times in the past year - I just love the dim sum. We've even gotten to know some of the wait staff and they will recommend stuff for us - although I for sure have my favourites. Hard to go wrong with anything.

Food is good but price is way above it. If there are more choices around then I think there won't be as many people here. Service is poor as they won't answer any questions at all. So if you won too much money in the casino then sure but I will sure drive that 15 minutes to Richmond's Chinese food.... 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...

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 close by.

Thank Carmen L
