Richmond is home to some of the best Chinese food spots in the Lower Mainland—and Gingeri Restaurant is one of the most popular Chinese food restaurants in Richmond, with numerous awards under its belt.
Gingeri was opened in 2004. The restaurant’s name was inspired by a decorative accessory in ancient China called a “Jin Ru Yi” which was worn over the wrist by wealthy people to indicate status and wealth. The word means good fortune and the fulfillment of wishes.
Whether you come in for a mid-shopping-spree lunch or for a celebratory dinner, Gingeri Restaurant has dishes to suit every craving and occasion. It is best-known for its variety of choices of Dim Sum, including traditional style Har Gow, Shao Mai, spring rolls, steamed BBQ Pork Buns, as well as signature creative Dim Sum items such as shrimp salad tarts with gold flakes.
The pièce de resistance are the restaurant’s three signature dishes: Sautéed Crab, eggplants and minced pork with spicy sauce, and Braised Whole Duck stuffed with Glutinous Rice.
All of these delicacies, and more, can be enjoyed in one of Gingeri’s main dining room and two private dining rooms, which cater up to 250 guests. 16-foot ceilings add to the cozy and upscale vibe of the restaurant, which also includes a karaoke system. It’s no wonder it’s a go-to location for weddings and birthday parties alike!
Gingeri restaurant is located at the East Side of Lansdowne Centre and is open seven days a week form 9 am to 3 pm and again from 5 pm to 10 pm.
Reservations recommended. Gingeri Chinese Restaurant is located at 5300 No. 3 Road, Richmond, 604-278-6006.
