Ideally, I would have been able to give this a 3.5 rating. Essentially, we had a pleasant meal with good food and service. Nothing was bad, but nothing stood out as exceptional either. Giving it a 3 would be a bit harsh since we both enjoyed all aspects of the meal, but that doesn't make it "Very Good" either. All... More

Friendly staff. Seems to be family operated. Busiest on weekends. Closes around 8PM weeknights. Excellent seafood options. Vegetarian options are available.

They've improved vastly since opening. Very good service now, much quicker and polite. Food has always been excellent. You should still call ahead for food to go if you're in a hurry.

I have several options when it comes to Chinese food in the area but, when I decide to pick some up for dinner this is the one I choose. Above average egg rolls, crisp and not oily - the entrees that I've had over the years have all been very good and you can ask and they will make it... More

I have been going to Kirin Cafe for several years now, and plan on returning for a long time to come. The food is always on point and reasonably priced! Better yet, the staff is always very friendly, and remembers what we order and how we like it prepared! While the restaurant isn't usually very crowded, it seems like they... More

Our first time there (family dinner) as we responded to their menu mailer and wanted to find a better option in the South Riding area for Chinese. Good was great, portions adequate, prices very reasonable (General Tso's $12.99), all with a nice place to sit and have your meal. Good service, clean, respectable - we say goodbye to the Hunan...

Stopped by on a Friday night. Tucked away in a small commercial area so was kind of surprised to find it off the beaten path. Wasn't busy so service was great. Food was very good. Portions were sizable. Had enough left over to make the size of a take out meal. Price was reasonable considering nice portion size. Would certainly... More

If you are looking for good Asian food near South Riding you should give Kirin a try. It appears that the bulk of their business is in carry-out & delivery since the restaurant is never crowded. The staff is super friendly and the food is always good. Kirin is leaps and bounds above Wong Kok (the other option for Chinese... More
