my picks off the top of my head:

Pho
Pho Han - I enjoy Pho Han too. The pho itself is okay, but I especially like their cheap subs ($3). This is beside Manzo Itamae (also a very good restaurant) at Garden City and Capstan.

Lemongrass - Good pho and friendly service (although slow sometimes)

Thai Son - probably the cleanest atmosphere for Pho in Richmond. Almost always busy and their food quality is good but not the best out there.


Curry
Mui Garden - Never get the small order to go though, it's literally just rice, beef, and sauce. Not a single vegetable, not even a potato.

Aberdeen food court one is good too.


Dim Sum
Gingeri (@ Lansdowne) - try their deep fried wonton

Kirin (@ Richmond Centre, CIBC section) - Best service and quality in town if you ask me. A little pricier for certain items.

Fisherman's Terrace (@ London Drugs on No.3 Rd) - Good quality food, check out their specials at the top of the dim sum menu.


BBQ Pork
BBQ Master (@ Superstore) - Always consistent quality, rather small though.

Master Hung's (@ Garden City/Blundell) - Always consistent as well. Check out their lunch specials (meal + drink or soup for like $7).

BBQ place @ Parker Place - I honestly think their BBQ duck is the best, also very large portions.


HK Style Cafes
Lido (mall in between Parker and Aberdeen) - You MUST try their Egg tarts. Seriously best in town, probably best in province. Atmosphere is a bit old but people go there for the food, not the surroundings. Food is pricier than you might expect.

Kam Ho (across from Sun Sui Wah on Alexandra Rd) - This is now my fav place for Beef Brisket on noodles. Before Yee Yuen (No.3 rd mall where Staples is) changed chefs, I went there but that's all changed of course.


Japanese
I don't eat a lot of this in Richmond but Manzo Izakaya, Manzo Itamae and Sushi Hachi are all good choices.

Quite a few of you recommended Deer Garden. I went to their website and they have 2 locations, is there a preference as to which one is better? The Sexsmith or Alexandra branch? Or are they pretty much the same?

I would recommend you go to the one on Sexsmith road beside Posh. Parking is a bitch at the Alexandra location.

Just finished eating at Deer Garden, very generous with the toppings for the noodles and the soup was flavourful! Curry was smooth and creamy. Service was horrible though, as someone mentioned earlier, no one there smiled at all. When I asked the waitress for an extra napkin her expression gave me the impression that I had just asked her to give a cow an enema. I was hesitant to ask her for anything else as she looked like he wanted to roundhouse kick me if I requested anything else... Shitty service... but food was good and portions were big.
