    ones that serves dogs or ones that you can still walk out and not have a diarrhea

    china town is ok for chiense food. if u're into just knock offs, like sweet and sour pork, wontons, stick with hons.

    if u want some real good chiense food in china town.... there's one or two dim sum place, but i'm not sure where it is or if it's still in business
    If jack helped you off a horse would you help jack off a horse??

    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    look at any restaurant that is busy. if it's empty, especially during the dinner hours, stay away.

    What kind of food/price range are you looking for? Dim sum, dinner, a casual "wonton house"? Most of the better Chinese restaurants are actually not in Chinatown...

    Great little chinese restaurant with good food and good prices.

    The place isn't anything fancy (for that there are a bunch of high end places in Richmond) but the food is great and it's a popular place with the old school chinese canadians.

    Price is not really the issue. Nor is style. We are taking out someone who wants to go to dinner in chinatown. At this point any place close to chinatown would be cool.

    There is a place on Hastings called I The Pink Pearl (I believe that's what its called) Its near China Town but more towards Commercial. Its really good but really authentic so you have to watch what you order unless your into eating anything.

    What types of things are "really" authentic?

    i don't know if i'd call the Pink Pearl authentic, maybe old school Canadian Chinese - authentic is some of the places in Richmond where they don't have english menus. There was one place I went to and I refused to eat this thing that looked like a horse's penis - turned out it was (just not off a horse) ... i wasn't putting that in MY mouth!
