I just spent over 80.00 at this spot in South Riding to go home and find hairs in my food. I ordered vegetarian spring rolls and received pork in my spring rolls. I called the restaurant and spoke with the owner who began her conversation...yelling at me. She proceeded to tell me that she did not believe me and told me to come back with the food. She can come to pick it up as it is all in the trash. What kind of customer service is this? They screwed up and she is yelling at me! Not only totally disgusting by the hair being in each and every meal (we ordered six) but the pork think is a biggie for us. Never will go back. By the way, Kirin Asian owners, try fixing a problem and not yelling at customers. May help your business. Disgusted..More

I got pick-up Kung Pao chicken and it's exactly what you'd expect from a little Chinese place in a little shopping center. Nothing special, but not bad at all. Excellent contactless COVID take-out though.

Consistently good food. Particularly like the steamed dumplings, the wonton soup and the Mongolian chicken but the fried rice and noodle dishes are consistently good too.

Kirin is a family friendly restaurant with optional take out available. The service is friendly, the food is good and quick! We have never ate in the restaurant (although it is cute) but always got food to go. It is properly packaged to keep it...hot and quickly prepared. We call ahead on the way home from work and in 10-20 minutes (depending on the day) it is ready when we get there. My favorite is the Hunan chicken. After trying every other Chinese food restaurant in the area, this is the go-to Chinese restaurant in South Riding!More

I order delivery from Kirin quite a lot. It's just about the only Chinese restaurant I do order from. They make it to my specifications every time, because I do not like onions and ask that they not include them. And they don't. I have...no complaints!More

Clean, great service, friendly staff (both husband and wife). She told me not to drink the tea at night if I have trouble sleeping when I asked for decaf. Such a sweetheart. Crab Rangoon was very good as was the Hot & Sour soup. I...had the Kung Pow Chicken and asked for white meat, she was happy to accommodate and it immediately became a favorite!More

I ordered Orange Chicken, Crab Rangoon, And vegetable spring rolls. The Orange chicken was all breading and barely any chicken and vegetable spring rolls were all wrapping! When I called to complain they were not understanding. They told me I need to bring it back...to the store in order to have it replaced. I refused. Wish I would have read trip advisor before ordering delivery from here. #NEVERAGAINKIRINASAINCAFE!!More

I just had a very bad experience at Kirin Asian Cafe. I ordered the pad Thai and when I got home it came with red and green pepper in it and no spring onion, another type of onion was substituted. I called them and told...them that I was allergic to green pepper and that it was not on their menu and they said to bring it back. I tried to scoop out what I could from the trash and take it back up there in the container. They argued with me and said that it was my fault for not telling them I was allergic to green pepper. I told them that in my whole life I have never had green pepper in pad Thai, but aside from that they did not have it on their menu that there was a green pepper in it. Then they said there was not enough left in it to give me another one or my money back. I said I had to pick it out of the trash and they said I should've brought the trash bag in . Then they laughed at me, openly and loudly saying that I was crazy for wanting it replaced. It was the owner and her husband who were laughing. I told them I did not think that was very good business to lose a customer worth hundreds of dollars as I am a regular, and they just laughed. I told them I would be posting this and they just laughed. So there you go, beware of embarrassing and harsh treatment by the owners of Kirin Asian café.More

Ideally, I would have been able to give this a 3.5 rating. Essentially, we had a pleasant meal with good food and service. Nothing was bad, but nothing stood out as exceptional either. Giving it a 3 would be a bit harsh since we both...enjoyed all aspects of the meal, but that doesn't make it "Very Good" either. All of that stated, we would certainly go back for another meal without hesitation.More
