If you're going to Kirin, avoid the starlight location. They take fucking forever and food is not as good as Richmond.

Wow!

The digital edition was JUST published today.

Good catch.

The printed edition (magazine) comes out in 7 days.

I can't believe Jade took the 2nd spot for Chinese.

I went there once, and the food was average.

I will have to try Hoi Tong, which I googled, and is suppose to be a 7 table restaurant.

Many fine dining restaurants will make a VIP menu if you call in ahead of time (1-2weeks) and prepare a coursed meal unique to your needs.

I would suggest Diva@theMet as I had an excellent coursed meal there (changes season to season) and also ThePearTree (previous cook here, top notch in details and ideas; not to mention represented canada in BocuseDor [culinary "olympics"] and chef of the year 2007) - both with extensive wine selections!

Oh yeah, Diva at the Met has free valet service (though of course, courtesy demands that you tip well).

I second this; had their 7-course tasting menu a few months ago. Butter toast ice cream... chicken bacon... . Chef Hamid is a great chef. What's good about their tasting menu is that in addition to the 5 or 7 courses, they give you some little "snacks" as well as some palate cleansers inbetween some of the courses. I liked some of those more than the courses.

Thanks a lot for everyone's suggestions and feedback
So I made reservations at Blue Water Cafe for one of nights.
My cousin requested Japanese for the other night, so I'm still deciding which resturant to go to. I'm honestly just thinking of going with Ebisu since I've had pretty consistent service/food there, not sure if my aunt/uncle would appreciate the extra $ spent at a Miku, Minani, Octopus Garden or Tojos. But I haven't decided yet, so any input for Japanese Resturant is welcome.

I will also likely take them for Dim Sum at the richmond Kirin one morning, and likely for lunch at the Fish house at stanley park one day as well.

Hopefully that should be enough to keep them fed for the 2 days that I'm 'stuck' with them.

k thanks for the 'warning'.....
so out of Miku, Minami, Octopus Garden and Tojo which one should I take them to?
I've been to Tojo and honestly wasn't impressed..perhaps I didnt spend enough $....but it was nothing amazing.
