Best Chinese restaurants in Vancouver

By Vancity Buzz

Here are our picks (in no particular order) for the best Chinese restaurants in Vancouver.

  • Peaceful Restaurant

    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.

  • Flamingo Restaurant

    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 Restaurant

    Kirin is often among the top options for Vancouver’s dim sum enthusiasts, thanks to their modest selection of well-known staples.

  • NingTu Restaurant

    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.
