I'm going to be in Vancouver (Richmond) for 1 night in June and would like an authentic Hong Kong/ Mandarin/ Peking dinner (Aren't these cuisines all similiar?). So far from perusing this board and others, Sun Sui Wah and Kirin seem to be mentioned the most frequently.
I understand that there has been continued Asian growth, especially in the Richmond area, since Hong Kong changed hands. With all of that said, are there other newer restaurants that are better? Is there a difference in the quality between the different locations? What is the typical bill for a nice dinner for 2? Even though the main king crab season is over, are fresh crabs still available and if so is fresh crab so much better that it shouldn't be missed? Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.
BTW on a non food note. Is the Chinese garden as spectacular as it is made out to be?
Thanks in advance.
