Price was reasonable. Service was acceptable. However, the total length of time from start to finish was unreasonably lengthy.
Started service just before 7pm, finished serving dessert at 9:55 pm. There were "intermission" period where no food was served. These periods lasted over 20 minutes each.
Food quality varies. Roast piglet was great, some dishes have too much MSG.

We decided to try out this restaurant as we heard about this place after we moved to New Westminster from Richmond.The food and service is excellent compared to most Chinese restaurant in Richmond and would recommend everyone to try this restaurant but it is a bit pricey but you pay for the excellent food and service you will receive.

Four of us enjoyed a whole steamed fish, gooey duck done 2 ways roasted chicken and pea tips. All were tasty and excellent. The wait staff were very attentive.

We went to the Kirin Starlight for dinner on Dec. 21 2017 celebrating the Chinese Winter Solstice. We ordered suckling pig (the skin was not crispy), pea sprout (really too tough to chew) and a 2-1/2 lb. crab (the meat shrinked a lot). We told the server and he cancelled the pea sprout for us. We used to dine in this restaurant and the food quality is always good. We consider this the best restaurant of the Kirin chain. Maybe the restaurant was full that night and the cooks were overworked. They also should improve in merchandizing, to get better quality for the prices charged. We were really disappointed.

I used to go here often for family get togethers but I find recently they tend to turn away small families who do not look wealthy or will spend a lot of money.

I went to the Richmond Kirins too and they don't serve you well if you are not spending lots of money or is one of their preferred clients.

They just make you feel unwanted.
