Its a great mall, just remember to bring cash! Lots of places in the food court will only accept cash. I have been here many times and that will always be the case

They allowed scam stores like M G Cosmetics to be staying in the mall, so it's kind of questionable on what their standard is.

The lady in M G Cosmetics was hostile to young kids and played trick to force parents to buy insanely overpriced items. She closely monitor kids entering the store and take any chance to claim that the kids caused damage to the product so she could force adults to buy whatever kids touched! They put advertising stickers that are not part of the product and lured kids to touch so that the stickers may come off, and she claimed that the product was damaged by the kids! Most items were not price tagged, and people have no idea on what they'd cost until they had to pay. A $10 body wash costs $40 here. That's disgusting!

If this mall revise their standard of merchant acceptance and make sure the scam stores like this are not allowed to be in the mall, then this will be an adorable place to visit.

Was here 7-8 years ago, I was in awed over lots of Asian stores and restaurants in a mall. US don’t have anything like it. Now the mall just not as exciting, maybe Covid, stores empty , especially 3rd level.

Marketed as the “first truly Asian shopping experience in the Lower Mainland,” Richmond’s Aberdeen Centre is unlike any other mall in the Greater Vancouver Area. Once you arrive at the shopping centre, you quickly realize why Vancouver’s Best Places suggested it has a “distinctly Asian flavour.” It is, as the name implies (Aberdeen being a popular destination in Hong Kong), an Asian hub where you can find anything from herbs & health foods, cosmetics, Thai designer furniture, the latest fashions, and unique pan-Asian eats. In short, if you want to experience Asia in microcosm, there’s no better place to visit than Aberdeen Centre.

The above makes our visit to the Aberdeen Centre all the more humorous. We were in Richmond with my dear grandmother and she had a hankering to attend a mall. I’d suggested CF Richmond Centre or Lansdowne, but she was steadfast on visiting Aberdeen because “it was closer” to our hotel (not by much!). I asked if she was sure and then quietly acquiesced, knowing she likely wouldn’t find anything she was looking for (i.e.: Common North American stores and brands). So, we headed off and managed to snag some pretty primo parking in one of Aberdeen’s free lots, just adjacent to the H-Mart entrance (yay!).

Not surprisingly, given the time of year (Chinese New Year), the mall was a hustle and bustle of activity. It was difficult, at times, to navigate some of Aberdeen’s more narrow walkways; however, the main atrium and upper levels were fine. In any event, I couldn’t help but smile and chuckle as I observed my grandmother and dear mother amble from store to store and not finding whatever it was they were looking for. While they browsed, I amused myself by taking in Aberdeen’s stunning architecture. The curved upper levels and random-sized natural light openings on the ceiling add to the special feel of this mall. Additionally, because we were on the eve of Chinese New Year, the mall was decked out in beautiful red Chinese lanterns and dragon displays. Indeed, that’s definitely one major thing I appreciate about this mall: It celebrates Asian cultures and does so very proudly.

After wandering the mall for a while, we made our way up to the food court level. Browsing past TripAdvisor reviews, it would seem the food court is a highlight as most seem to focus their attention on it. In this, I would agree. It’s nice to patronize a mall food court and not be met with your standard fare – KFC, Starbucks, Burger King and the like. Instead, visitors are treated to a wonderful variety of pan-Asian eats; and I’m not talking about your typical Westernized cuisine like beef chow mein or sweet & sour pork. Here, you can have authentic Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese, Cantonese, Korean, Malaysian and Szechuan cuisine. From a foodie perspective, it really is quite a nice selection. And it’s not just savoury on the menu, no. This food court is home to Beard Papa’s (delicious cream puffs) and 8 Juice (fresh fruit smoothies! Yum!).

Before departing, we did shop in the H-Mart, which serves as an anchor tenant (the other anchor being Daiso). To my mind, the H-Mart was very similar to T&T, which is a good thing. We procured a few treats and spices before going on our merry way.

I do intend on returning to this mall once the COVID-19 stuff dies down. Not long after our visit, Gram Café opened its doors for the first time at Aberdeen Centre. They’re a Japanese chain renowned for their soufflé pancakes which, based on the propaganda photos I’ve seen, look absolutely divine! Go on – look them up! If they don’t get you wanting to visit, I don’t know what will!

Overall, I do enjoy sporadically visiting the Aberdeen Centre. Its unique fusion of East meets West shopping and dining results in an experience absent from other malls in the Greater Vancouver Area. And while my grandmother didn’t find what she was looking for, the food selection will surely bring me back sooner than later!

I love going to this mall! I can find any Chinese products I need at multiple shops. I especially love the Saint Germain Chinese Bakery, their egg tarts are wonderful!

Our family went to the second floor of the Aberdeen Center Food Court recently. There were so many different types of food that we can choose from, mostly different kinds of Asian styles - Shanghai, Cantonese, Korean, Vietnamese, to name just a few. The food court is always packed with people, but you can always find tables to sit with a good view as well.

Sadly, we were every disappointed with our visit to Aberdeen centre. The shops were average to below and the food at the food court was terrible. The chicken rice I tried was inedible as the chicken was very smelly (stale chicken) and rice was flavourless. It wasn’t much better for my friends who tried food from other stalls. On top of that most place only take cash and be ready for a long wait to be served. Overall, not worth a trip to Richmond.
