There's a suburb of Vancouver that supposedly has really terrific Chinese food

Can anyone tell me the name of the suburb and how to get there (is there public transportation)? Also, is there a particular restaurant I should visit. An acquaintance said it was the best Chinese food of his life, but I've fallen out of contact with him. Hoping someone here will know.

You're talking about Richmond, which is by the airport.  And it does have great Asian food -- not just Chinese, but also Thai, etc.

I've eatten at a number of restaurants there and never had bad good but didn't take any cards with me, sorry.  Try searching a site like Zagat for recommendations.

You can take the Canada Line to Richmond from downtown Vancouver, a very easy 20-minute ride. Get off at Aberdeen Centre and there's a couple malls with great food to choose from. Feels like you're in Asia. Fisherman's terrace is good for dim sum; their shrimp spring rolls are fantastic.

Thee is great chinese food in Richmond, and I'm sure its the suburb your friend was thinking of because of its extremely large affluent chinese population. But Greater Vancouver as a whole has a very large number of excellent chinese restaurants. Dim Sum is very popular here. Salina makes a great point about Aberdeen Centre, and all along No.3 road you can get a different cultural experience. But unless you want to go into Richmond (which is great) you can find great chines food in all of Vancouver. Indeed you might get more of an intense experience going to China town itself, right next to downtown. My understanding is its the second largest in North America after San Francisco.
