The people have spoken. Results to the sixth annual Diners’ Choice Awards – which go to the best Chinese restaurants in Metro Vancouver – are in.
An incredible 19,612 votes were cast during the month-long voting period. Voters were tasked with choosing the best restaurants in 20 separate categories, ranging from Best Cantonese Restaurant to Best Food Court Stall and Best Dim Sum. Over the years, the awards have grown to become the definitive guide to Chinese food in the city, helping diners identify hidden gems and familiar favourites among the thousands of Chinese restaurants in Metro Vancouver.

As in past years, the city of Richmond has come out on top, boasting an overwhelming majority of the winners. In fact, many are located side by side along so-called Food Street in the heart of the city, where hundreds of Chinese restaurants are packed into the space of just a few blocks of Alexandra Road.
This year, several new award categories focused in on specific Chinese dishes, including Best Sichuan Boiled Beef, Best Honey Garlic Spareribs, Best Egg Tart, Best Taiwanese Bubble Tea and Best Wonton Noodles. The Diners’ Choice Awards are followed on April 23 by the Critics’ Choice Awards, where the pros weigh in on the best Chinese dishes in the city.
The complete list of the Diners’ Choice Awards winners appears below:
