Usually I prefer a more budget-friendly restaurant but recently went out for dinner with my inlaws to the Red Star Seafood restaurant in Vancouver. Every dish was well prepared and of a decent portion. The food was delicious and they had plenty of staff who ensured we were well served and kept our tea cups and iced glasses of water... More

I've had lunch here twice, once a couple of months ago and once two weeks ago. The dim sum is quite good and quite reliable, but not great. One orders dim sum items at this restaurant by making a paper menu. There are no roving steam carts. The dishes you've ordered all may arrive at once, or they may slowly... More

Went as guests of a friend who is obviously well known to management. Had a wonderful catered dinner including Peking duck and King Crab. Great food and good company. Friends we had not seen for 30 odd years.

Arriving in Vancouver after a lengthy flight with no food, stopped here for a lunch break. Was seated immediately and served equally quickly. The dim sum dishes were all good but lacking in tasty spicing. They were of good size and well-filled, but just lacked that special touch. Also ordered a noodle dish after seeing it arrive at the next... More

This was my first time at this restaurant. The Dim Sum was good but the service was slow. We arrived before the big lunch rush so I don't know why we had such a long wait. We ordered the basic Dim Sum dishes (Siu mai, Har Gow and Rice Rolls) and was not disappointed. I would recommend this place but... More

Friend recommended this restaurant and wife ordered. Great long bean and beef dish. Other places serve with spicy minced pork but red star serves it with small cubes of beef

Popular place for Dim-Sum and dining. Free parking and good service. Both Dim-Sum and cuisines are well prepared using fresh and quality ingredients. A good pick for authentic Cantonese cuisine.

The Red Star Seafood Restaurant can be found on the former White Spot Restaurant site. Our latest visit was not favorable. Most Chinese restaurants in metro Vancouver no longer charge for Chinese, Red Star charges $1.50 PP and Tai Tung Chinese Seafood at 8012 Granville Street charges 95 cents PP. Interesting to note that both restaurants are in Marpole. Of... More

I've been to this restaurant with friends many times over the years and it's been consistently good each time. They have a great selection of food. A must have each time (even for lunch!) is their house specialty - roasted duck. Whether you're there to impress out of town guests or just enjoying a nice meal with family and friends,... More

Our friends, economic refugees from Hong Kong 1997, insisted that Richmond had much superior Chinese restaurants than the traditional Chinatown and they were correct. Red Star in modern complex in Richmond right adjacent the largest Chinese mall in North America. It's decor modern Chinese, spacious with high ceilings and whilst nearly 100% capacity it was not noisy. Predominantly Cantonese cuisine... More
