We participated in a birthday dinner for a family member earlier this week in Vancouver. Kirin is a centrally located Chinese restaurant in downtown Vancouver and parking is not a problem. Our food was absolutely great. There were five of us and we each ordered a personal preference and consulted with our waitress who helped in the selection. The menu is extensive and she definitely helped by ensuring we had a variety of vegetables etc. The veggies were particularly fresh and flavourful. Lemon chicken was great, prawns, ginger beef with black bean sauce...everything tasted great. We had been here before and our waitress was known to us and she was really friendly and we joked about the music in the background and she ensured that as plates emptied, room on the table was cleared..just great service. Needless to say we will go back again!
