Best Chinese restaurants in Vancouver
By Vancity Buzz
Here are our picks (in no particular order) for the best Chinese restaurants in Vancouver.
Featuring the cuisine of northern China, Peaceful is beloved for their beef roll, as well as their noodles (hand-pulled, knife cut, Dan-Dan, you name it).
Peninsula Seafood Restaurant
This is a bright, busy, modern Chinese restaurant inside Oakridge Mall. The restaurant is the first Canadian venture for its parent company, a China-based restaurant group.
Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie
Bao Bei’s food veers towards contemporary and upscale, and some dishes draw from the influence of other cuisines without being “fusion.”
Long’s Noodle House
This 10-seater hole in the way beckons Chinese food fans from afar. With dishes like their Xiao Long Bao and drunken (or wine) chicken, Long’s is the stuff local legends are made of.
Dynasty Seafood Restaurant
Dynasty has won awards for their high-end Chinese food and dim sum. It’s one of those pricier Chinese restaurants with big seafood tanks, crowded dining room and dazzling presentation.
If you have been in Vancouver awhile, your family may have had special occasion meals at Flamingo. Flamingo has been a mainstay in the Lower Mainland for over thirty years.
Legendary Noodle House
Head to the West End’s Legendary Noodle House to watch your noodles being stretched and pulled right there on the spot in their open kitchen.
Kirin is often among the top options for Vancouver’s dim sum enthusiasts, thanks to their modest selection of well-known staples.
You’ll find Shanghai-style Chinese classics here at this Kensington-Cedar Cottage joint. Beef rolls, pan fried dumplings, and pan fried rice cakes are among the most popular dishes.
Landmark Hotpot House
Go for the geoduck, or feast on the fatty beef (or for the intrepid, there are lots of intestines to ingest), just be prepared to open your wallet wide; the city’s best hotpot doesn’t come cheap.
