Great location and ample free parking. We were a family of seven. Services were great. Food was mediocre for the price. Dishes were small. We didn't order any fish or other seafood dishes but the total was over $200 before tips.

I flew to Vancouver to celebrate my mother-in-law's 85th birthday. We ordered a set menu. The menu included two lobsters, and to our disappointment, the lobsters were not fresh at all. We called the supervisor who passed by and told him about it, he took it away. (Period !) We were thinking what kind of service this place gives us,... More

One of the onsite restaurants of Starlight casino but you don't have to enter the casino to get to it; no problem for you to take your children. It is a slightly more upscale Chinese restaurant with good service, efficient staff, and a extremely wide menu. Our meal was mostly dim sum which was all very good, the dim sum... More

I came here for a traditional Chinese 10 course meal for a wedding last month. They had sufficient waiters to serve over 25 tables of 10 people. What was extra special was the waiters even served each person individually as each dish came out. All the food was good except for the Bird's Nest soup which the smell of it... More

Kirin - at least the New Westminster location - never disappoints. It's a staple for our family for any family gatherings, holidays (ie: Mother's Day or Father's Day) and simply for great dim sum. Since the staff there know most of my family, we are always treated well. The recommendations they provide are honest and the staff just want you... More

I used to love this Kirin. But it has gone downhill in the last few years. The servers were extremely rude. When food arrived, the server just pushed our plates and cups around to make room. She was throwing things around and making lots of noises. Had to ask multiple times to get some hot sauce. When we were about... More
