Recommendation for Chinese Restaurant - Vancouver

Need a recommendation for a good Chinese restaurant in downtown Vancouver for a large multi-generational family get-together of approximately 15. I'm going to have family there from Hong Kong so need a place that will at least meet their standards half-way. Thanks.

  1. For large family gatherings, we've gone to the Victoria Chinese Restaurant in the Hyatt hotel for years. Best to call them to discuss a menu ahead of time. The chef is very flexible, and they've always kept their prices reasonable.

      My father took a large group there last night and said that it was terrible, and this was one of his standbys for these purposes. I don't know if it was just an off night.

        Victoria is terrible, kirin or sun sui wah much safer.

          Hm, that's too bad. It's been our standby forever too.

      2. kirin on alberni and bute - they make everything from scratch - it's delicious and they can definitely take care of a large group like that.

        i miss their food now that i live in calgary.

          thx. is that pretty easy to get to from downtown vancouver?

            Kirin is right downtown, one block towards the water from robson on bute and alberni street. There is also a location in richmond on westminster hwy but the downtown location has always been my favorite.
