One of my acquaintant who lives here took me to this restaurant, telling me that I could have excellent dim-sum. Like she said, every dim-sum we ordered were delicious! Above them all, I loved the fried rice noodle in curry flavor. A woman who waited our table was very kind, came around often to pour hot oolong tea. Customers were... More

This place is great to go for dim sum (lunch) or dinner. For lunch, the menu is not as extensive as most Chinese dim sum restaurant but what Kirin serve are excellent. For dinner, I would recommend to have the owner (Vienna Ho) order for you as she is very honest and know what is good for that evening. I... More

Kirin used to be one of the best Chinese restaurants in Honolulu. The food is still quite good (seafood, duck, sesame pocket buns with pork or lamb filling) but management seems to let the waiters and the kitchen do their own thing without regard to customers. there is no floor manager in sight. After waiting for a table for 10... More

I reviewed this restaurant about four years ago. It continues to be a family favorite. We had a birthday dinner for Dad and ordered special dishes. The deep fried chicken wings were tasty and crispy. (needs to be ordered at least one day prior to dining). We also had the Chinaman's hat, kau yuk (fatty pork with cabbage) and lobster... More

The dunganess crab with special house sauce, the wu shu style glazed ribs and the Chinese broccoli with garlic are among my favorite dishes for lunch with special friends.

Clearly the best in town. Consistently. I've had dim sum, dinner parties with wine & just a few friends. Dim sum made to order. Toi shan crab modeled after iconic dish in NY. Kumu fish (on special order), walnut shrimp, the usual favorities all excellent.

Come here once in a while. Overall, food is good and tasty, but it seems that some of the dishes are more salty than it should be. Could use less salt. Although prices are on the expensive side,service was good and attentive.

We came upon this restaurant by accident after watching a UH softball game, searching for a nearby place serving Dim Sum. We missed the Dim Sum (I think it's just a lunch thing), but we ordered Kong Bao Beef, eggplant with szechan sauce, jasmine rice, mandarin bun. It was all excellent. We enjoyed every bite. Price was reasonable. Parking is... More
