Had a wonderful dinner at this Kirin location. The dishes we ordered were very well prepared: baby bok-choy & bean curd, scallop, prawns & chicken, and black cod. The black cod in particular was extremely well prepared.

I visited there for lunch twice; one for dim sum and the other for congee and fried noodles. Both served with high standard of traditional Cantonese style. The price was reasonable.

This place can be great. It can also be mediocre. Sometimes it's friendly. Sometimes you get cold stares from the staff. Worth taking a chance if you're in the area. Otherwise I wouldn't bother making a special trip.

This is probably one of the worst restaurants that I have ever been to. The food is way too greasy and salty despite the fact that they cost an arm and a leg. Service is non existent especially if you come in a small group....More

Kirin Seafood Restaurant has an extensive menu with a vast variety of offerings. Many of the dishes are familiar; however, there were many that were less familiar unless the diner knows Chinese cuisine. We found enough dishes for a delicious and satisfying dinner. There are...More
