There are many Dim Sum restaurants in Vancouver and Kirin is my favorite. The restaurant is always packed with people during weekend, reservation is a must.
Their dim sum is a little bit more expensive than other restaurants but their taste, food presentation, service and ambience are better. There are four Kirin seafood restaurants in Vancouver and this one has bigger seating space than others.

and the food was quite delicious. Service was very prompt. Prices are ok considering Kirin is considered a high end Chinese seafood restaurant, but don't expect really low prices. For standard dim sum fare, expect to pay $4-5 per order. Very fresh ingredients. Nice presentation and good flavour., Ambience is excellent. If you are willing to pay a little extra for dim sum or taking family or friends for a special meal, then Kirin is a great option for the Burnaby/New Westminster area. Expect to pay at least $15-20/person for dim sum.

Located at the Starlight Casino (I think that's the name) and so lots of free parking.

Would recommend this restaurant.

We went to Kirin for dimsum. It's located in same complex as starlight casino. As usual if you get there after 11am on the weekends there is always a wait. Our estimated wait time was 45mins. So we took a seat in the waiting area. We got called for a table with only 20 min wait.

We ordered our dimsums and waited for 15 to 20 mins before it came out. It takes so long because the orders are streamed based on order and not steamed on mass which is great as it tastes a lot better. Food was good but some dishes are little light on season which I like. Service was prompt, polite and courteous. I would recommend to anyone visiting the New Westminster area.

There are so many waiters and busboys here that the service is virtually instantaneous. But we were disappointed in the food. As longtime Chinese food lovers since childhood, we were very pleased to see that our party of four was the only table of Occidentals when we arrived for lunch. We ordered the BBQ appetizer platter for four so we could eat and chat without worrying about studying the very long menu. The meat -- chicken, duck and pork -- was cut into bite-size pieces. Very tender but each one was filled with bone so it was difficult to eat. In the middle of the platter was a pile of jellyfish -- a first for us -- not our favorite by any means, but we did try it. This truly is an authentic Chinese restaurant, so be prepared for some unusual food experiences! We also found the restaurant to be very noisy.
