Kirin Restaurant Review

You can take in the city skyline and the surrounding mountains at this spacious dining room, where the focus is on Cantonese-style seafood, including fish, crab, and lobster fresh from the tanks. The kitchen does an excellent job with vegetables, too; ask for whatever's fresh that day. Dim sum is served daily. It's an easy ride on the Canada Line from downtown to the Broadway/City Hall station, two blocks from the restaurant.

    I am deeply dismayed that Shark Fin Soup was on the menu. In fact it was the reason that a group of us left the restaurant without dining the other day.

    Sharks like whales, elephants and rhinos before them – are being overfished and they are an endangered species.

    It is environmentally and socially irresponsible, ethically and morally wrong.

    I cannot endorse nor support a restaurant that has such a high disregard for our planet

    Kirin Seafood Restaurant Review

    Fantastic Chinese food. My husband always orders Kung Pao Chicken, which at Kirin Seafood was the best ever. I ordered Spicy Scallops in Szechuan Sauce and we split an order of Vegetable Buddah Feast. The scallops were hot, tasty, included asparagus and mushrooms, and they don't scrimp on the seafood! I asked for a bit of spice to the Buddah Feast and got the best ever. I would estimate that 90% of the diners were Asian, which is usually a good sign. The prices are a bit higher than most Chinese restaurants, but worth every penny. The place was crowded so make reservations.
