Red Star has some of the freshest and tastiest dim sum around. Prices are a bit higher but the quality of food is well worth it. Service is decent at this location. Food comes out hot and fresh. Roomy dining area as you're not jammed...More

We had dinner at this restaurant with our extended family. They serve authentic Cantonese cuisine. The seafood was very fresh and portions were extremely generous. Everything was delicious. Friendly and helpful staff. Good for large groups. Probably one of the best Chinese restaurants in Vancouver!

The prices at the Red Star are a tad more than other Chinese restaurants in metro Vancouver. The ambience and service more than justify the additional cost. The dim sum is especially pleasant and the items arrive piping hot and are very flavorful.

Sunday from 10:45 am to 12:45 PM. Place was quite full but not overwhelmed. Service was above average. Food was average no surprises either good or bad. MSG was a bit on the heavy side.

Went for the peking duck because they served the two course. It was delicious, but had to ask for extra lettuce and wraps and sauce. Ordered a hot pot dish and it was nasty. Service was not good.

Excellent food. Every plate is exceeded expectations, especially the assorted BBQ appetizer. Crisp chicken is delicious, all the seafood is cooked to perfection. Well done. Well deserved the good tip.

Hello, sorry for my late reply. I don't work at the restaurant but just a frequent diner. The cost will be expansive and you should have a large party to share the Alaskan King Crab courses. They are usually come in three... More

There is underground free parking for Red Star Restaurant but park only at the stalls that marked Red Star patrons parking only. Otherwise, the fines are ridiculous expansive. Hope this is useful.
