Our friends, economic refugees from Hong Kong 1997, insisted that Richmond had much superior Chinese restaurants than the traditional Chinatown and they were correct. Red Star in modern complex in Richmond right adjacent the largest Chinese mall in North America. It's decor modern Chinese, spacious with high ceilings and whilst nearly 100% capacity it was not noisy. Predominantly Cantonese cuisine... More

This one along with Dynasty on Broadway are the two best Chinese restaurants. The dim sum is nicely done and cooked to your order so to guarantee the food is hot when serve to your table. The dinner menu is excellent and the service is impeccable. A rarity among the Chinese restaurants everywhere.

They have the best quality food, both dim sum and evening meal. It is very popular so it is best to reserve. The restaurant is large and well decorated. The service is excellent. You do pay a little more for dim sum than a lot of smaller places.

I wasn't at this particular restaurant; I was at the sister restaurant in Richmond. This is supposed to be just as good as the Richmond restaurant.

I really loved the dim sum here. Line up wasn't too long on a weekend, the staff was very nice and spoke English! The atmosphere and decor was really classy and clean and most importantly the food tasted really good! They had the classic dim sum dishes along with a great variety of creative yet authentic Chinese dishes. I have... More

We were in Vancouver for 3 days and wanted to have authentic Chinese food. We took the train from Downtown to the Red Start Seafood (located in the Radisson Hotel). We called in late but they gave us a table for the 8 of us in a private room. The restaurant was booked to capacity but they made provisions for... More

This is a REAL Chinese! I Have been lucky enough to go for DimSum and dinner! Both were fabulous. They do everything from prawn potstickers to chicken feet! What a treat! The pork and prawn spring rolls were also sensational!

All the dishes we ordered were good and the restaurant was very full and busy. The service was friendly. Only disappointment was finding a strand of hair in the broccoli with crabmeat dish. We did mention this to the waiter but think they were too busy and it did not register. As we had just arrived on a 10+ hour... More

very tasty food and fast service and not very expensive. The atmosphere is good but only problem is that very few of the waiters speak English. The dry chicken and prawns in spinach and the beef in black bean sauce was fantastic.
