The Best Chinese Restaurants In New Westminster

North Noodle House


A small hole in the wall with great ambience, North Noodle House specializes in cuisine that comes from the area of the Xinjiang province, an area in Northwest China.

Fresh, hand made noodles are made daily. Most items on the menu are spicy by default, so make sure you’re prepared (or ask them to dial it back a little).

Located at 386-800 Carnavon Street, North Noodle House is open 11AM to 9:30PM Monday to Saturday.

Wild Rice Market Bistro


A fresh take on Asian food with vegan and vegetarian options, Wild Rice takes old concepts and creates something new and refreshing.

Founded by Andrew Wong, the Chinese restaurant focuses on using locally sourced ingredients. Wong is a member of OceanWise and Green Table.

Wild Rice offers items such as duck confit tacos, vegan ramen, crispy chicken skins, and more.

Kirin Restaurant


A contemporary restaurant that has a focus on Cantonese Seafood, Kirin Restaurant boasts vaulted ceilings and classic detail.

They have a variety of menu items, with great flavours that are worth the slightly higher price. Our recommendation: try the birds nest or the abalone, you won’t be disappointed.
