We were a party of 10 for dinner, with one late add. The 2 course Peking duck was great-lots of crisp skin draped over shrimp chips, soft thin pancakes, fresh well trimmed scallions, followed by chopped duck meat in lettuce wrap. The standout was the Hot and Sour soup-filled with shrimp, prawn, crab, and a great textured broth. The squid tubes deep fried with salt and chilli were outstanding-tender squid, crisp coating, spicy without grease or oiliness. The scallops in birdsnest was lovely to see-with a thin vermicelli bird's nest and lots of seafood and colourfut crisp vegetable. The hot pot with spicy chicken bone in had a good flavourful sauce; Shrimp chow mein was crispy, the shrimp plump and fresh; therice noodles with egg and prawn silky and smokey at the same time, the vegetable dish with varied crisp greens that held their individual tastes.. The fresh lotus buns were a yummy dessert. The service was good-no long waits for tea and a quick accommodation of an extra guest, and an unobtrusive, attentive waiter. The room is a bit crowded-it was packed, but airy with lots of windows and good lighting on the third floor of Aberdeen Mall. The cost was less than expected-about 25 dollars a person including tax and tip without alcohol. We will be back.

The line was long, ....we waited for 45min before being shown a table, and that was after reminding the usher we were still waiting. Then another 15 min, before a waiter took our order (pre-order w/ the checklist they give you at the usher station).....they did bring tea out to you almost immediately.

Ordered the standard 'har gao', 'siew mai', 'fun cheong' and also the 'foo peh kuen'. Also had the pan-fried taro cake (strips like a hash brown) and 'Cha siew bao'. Of all these, the best was the 'foo peh kuen'...which had really fresh prawns, and crispy beancurd skin. The 'har gao' and 'siew mai' were pretty good too, though not as good as Kirin's which we just tasted the day before (thus we could really compare). The pan fried taro cake was not bad either, but we needed chilli sauce to add some spice to it. BTW, we had to ask for the sauce, ...while at Kirin, they provided that as they seated you. For the 'Cha siew bao', it was better at Kirin's,....though it was not bad here.
Prices were pretty comparable w/ Kirin's....but the wait will be the deal breaker. Don't think it's worth the wait......they had lots of patrons though....so, go figure. Overall, the dim sum was good, just that long wait leaves more to be desired.

Have not had Chinese food in a while and have not been to Fisherman's Terrace Restaurant for quite some time now. Decided to go there for lunch today and the food is still good. We had some dimsum, 2 course Peking Duck, and Chicken & Salt Fish Fried Rice. One thing I like about this place is that they have a wide selection of dimsum that some places in Richmond don't have. They are always busy for lunch but they turn around the tables fast. We were told that we would have to wait for at least 15 minutes but we got a table in less than 10. Service is good, fast, and efficient. If you don't mind the busy atmosphere for lunch, this is a good place for dimsum and for lunch if you are in the RIchmond, BC area. Still better than a lot of the Chinese restaurants out there. If you are visiting from out of town, you might want to try this restaurant just for the experience.

Enjoyed an early dinner here; it was busy and had a lively atmosphere. Exceptional service and great food. We ate several dishes including a seafood hot pot and the BBQ squab. Everything was very tasty and well prepared.

expect to pay premium here. good food but not cheap... lots of parking but still crazy on weekends. always crowded since it appeals to the Asian crowd.
