The food is OK. Otherwise I would give this restaurant only one star. However, my feeling is that they took every opportunity to rip me off. The price is not that expensive on the menu, but when they showed the bill, I was surprised. They...More

Came back on a long haul international flight to SFO and made a stop in at Kirin before going home. Service wasn't the fastest in town but it was worth the wait. Had a pan fried 'sole' fish and it 'hit the spot'. Side dishes...More

Excellent service and food! Servers as always are amazing. We only had Mushu and Chow-fun as we wanted to eat light. But when we are the family we order 6 to 8 plates. Always delicious!

Food was good -decent Cantonese cuisine. Service was so so - typical Chinese restaurant. LOL Location is good, but might be hard to find parking spot in weekends or at night.

We love Kirin and go there at least twice per month for eat in or (more often) takeout. The food is consistently delicious. We like the Szechuan shrimp, the minced chicken in lettuce wraps, and the chicken chow mein.
