Kingford Seafood Restaurant in Richmond

Updated: 25 Nov 2010: This restaurant had been replaced by HML Seafood Restaurant.

Kingford Seafood Restaurant is located on 5890 No.3 Road, Richmond. You cant miss this restaurant as it’s huge glass windows allow one to see through to the chandeliers decorated interiors.


The South Arm Community Kitchen celebrated the end of 2007 session with a Dim Sum lunch at Kingford Seafood Restaurant. We were there around 11:30 am and there was not many customers at that time. I like the ambiance of the restaurant, warmly lighted. This restaurant can accommodate 30 tables.


The dim sum dishes in Kingford Seafood Restaurant are categorized by size, $2.98 for small, $3.98 for medium and $4.68 for large. Special is priced at $5.38. Quite pricey in my opinion.

We ordered quite a lot of dim sum (some in double portions) as we expected more company but some people did not turn up. We ended up with some left over to take away. Here are the dim sums we ordered:


Steamed Prawn Dumplings (medium), springy and delicate …


… Red Bean Paste Pancake (small), a sweet dessert …


… Mixed Mushrooms E-Fu Noodle with Teriyaki Sauce for $10.88 as filler, …


and more desserts to cleanse the palate at the end. The desserts are some red bean custard and some kind of jelly with young shredded coconut in it.

The Dim Sum came up to $14 per person with tax and tips included. We had a 20% discount on the total bill for order placed before 12 pm.

We had a blast of time, enjoying the food and the company of one another. The Dim Sum were fresh and not too heavy despite we ordered more than enough. Minoo and Jean were amazed at the varieties of food in the Chinese cuisine.

    Hi Misha:
    I checked your site. Your pics are fabulous. Where were they taken? I love the seaside shots.

    It seems that most of the restaurant reviews here are about cantonese food. Want to try the Beijing Noodle House for some authentic northern Chinese food?

    Looks like small portion for $4 ($3.98) medium dim sum. Kind of lame.

    I like Kirin Richmond better The price for each dish is not cheap either but much bigger portion.

    Some of the dim sum places give you low price for each dish but the portion is ridiculous small like it’s for sampling.

    Hi Opus:

    Thanks for the complement!

    Beijing noodle house is right beside Wang Fu King restaurant, somewhere near landsdowne mall. There is a bunch of restaurants around it.
    Their signature dish? Well, don’t really know, I only have been there like three times and never got to know it. You can try stuffs like fried flat bread strips for some noodle.

    what kind of camera and flash do you have?

    Hi Nausicaa:
    Most of the pictures were not taken with a flash although I have a Canon Speedlite 430X. I normally set my ISO to 200 but in dim settings I set it to 800. Many of the pictures came up well because I shoot in RAW and I could salvage a lot of shots using white balance/software. Anyway, my equipments are described on this link:
