Chinese Restaurant in Richmond

I have some relatives coming up from SF tomorrow, so my family and I are planning to take them out to Richmond for some good ol' chinese food. I know Kirin is pretty good, but we want something different for a change, any good recommendations?

I went to Neptune Sharkfin about a year ago - it wasn't bad, and certainly not that expensive either.

and also
+1 for fisherman's terrace

Went to Kirin in Richmond tonight, service sucked and food wasn't that great.

Disappointing.

Not really, I paid for the meal, but I can see in their eyes that they weren't too pleased.

Felt especially bad for my relatives cause my sis kept hyping how good the food was, what made it even worse was, my aunt and uncle were accustomed to fine dining in Vegas, they usually spend upwards of $600-$700USD per couple for a meal down there, so when I took them to Kirin tonight, the quality of food and service was seriously not up to par of what they were expecting (courtesy of my sibling), so that let to a bit of a let down.

Oh well..

Nothing is worse than having family from out of town come here to have a bad experience with food in Vancouver.

Especially when they're Chinese.

their new location is overpriced. I loved their old place (it was great for eating congee and noodles and whatnot), but honestly, I am staying away from the "high class" route they are going now

-1 for kirin

vegas food is awful. if that price includes alcohol then i haven't tried it. the meal i had was about $250/person in vegas. autralian lobster, 'crystal' crab, abalone etc. much better food here.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

so you cant really compare kirin with vegas, where they spent 600-700 a couple. If you had spend that much at kirin, im sure the head chef would have cooked it b/c it would mean you are ordering 2 head or 3 head abalone and single bowl sharks fin a person. Plus they would have made sure everything was ok with top notch service (chinese restaurants tend to give the best service to ppl who order the most expensive food)

then you can compare i guess
