It's no secret that Vancouver is known for its amazing Chinese food. For the past five years, the Chinese Restaurant Awards have recognized the best of the region's Chinese cuisine and provided a guide that helps Vancouver residents and visitors to navigate the many Chinese dining options.
“As the forerunner of promoting Chinese cuisine in Canada, we have dedicated ourselves in staying up to date with the industry, both at home and abroad,” said Craig Stowe, Chinese Restaurant Awards’
Founding Director. “We’ve been persistent at bringing the public a well rounded dinning guide that
highlights the crème de la crème."
The 2014 Diners' Choice Awards have now wrapped up, with more than 19,000 votes cast in 20 categories over four weeks. Here are the winners in some of the most popular categories. Next up, the Critics' Choice Awards, in which professionals cast their votes. Those results will be announced April 23.
In addition to the restaurants below, you might want to check out Peninsula Seafood Restaurant at Oakridge Centre, which won in two categories: Best Service and Best Fine Dining Restaurant.
