Kirin has another location at Starlight Casino near New Westminster. They have 4 locations in total. They serve dim sum on the weekends before 2pm. It’s a beautiful space and it can get pretty busy around 10:30am. This time, we went around noon on a cold weekend and there were no lines at all.

kirin-waiting

If there is a line up, you would wait in this waiting area, but it’s quite nice.

kirin-dining

The main dining area is very large and they also have a private VIP area for small groups.

kirin-tea

You will be asked what type of tea you would like and I usually get a Jasmine or Oolong.

kirin-aloe-jello

Aloe Vera Jelly came complimentary as they were doing a promotion with Eastern Airlines. I’m not really sure what the connection was, but yeah for free things.

kirin-golden-sand-tofu

Golden Sand Tofu is one of my favourite dishes. It is soft and silky on the inside with crispy exterior and sprinkled with salty bits on top.

kirin-rice

Pan Fried Rice Rolls is quite good but it is an oily dish. The chewiness from the rice rolls and the salty sauce go well together.

kirin-shrimp-dumpling

Shrimp Dumplings comes with 4 pieces in the bamboo steamer. One of my favourite dishes.

kirin-sticky-rice

Sticky Rice has 3 pieces in a container. Decent size especially for the morning

kirin-tofu

Fried Bean Curd Rolls was one of my favourite dishes that we ordered. It was crispy on the outside and filled with savoury ingredients like mushroom.

Overall, Kirin is a good place to have dim sum, but they do lack a few dishes here and there. The quality is good. The Queenborough Landing Outlet is close by, so you should definitely check it out and try to find a good deal.
