Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine Richmond | 源

The name only is a mouthful Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine Richmond 源. This Shanghai restaurant is located beside Deluxe Chinese Restaurant 凯悦酒家 next to Aberdeen Mall. We were told how delicious their pan fried soup dumplings were and decided we must go check it out.


The restaurant itself is bright and open with some resemblance to Old Shanghai (except the blue velvet chairs).Big open display windows so we can all watch the chefs in action.


Service is mediocre and could be friendlier. Sometimes, the servers won’t bother explaining a dish if you had a question and just walks away.

Steamed Soup Dumplings: Pretty standard Xiao Long Bao with a juicy but very forgettable soup base. The meat was borderline mushy.


Pan Fried Soup Dumplings: Again nothing special to rave about. The skin was thinner than some other restaurants but the center filling again was pretty standard if not bland. At this point we were pretty puzzled why we were told such amazing things about their Steamed/Pan Fried Soup Dumplings.


Spicy Mouth Watering Chicken: The name of the dish is a bit misleading. Normally this is one of my favorite dishes to order at a Shanghai restaurant. The begin, the chicken was very boney. Little meat was there. There were lots of broken bones so be very careful. The sauce was overwhemingly spicy with little balance between sweetness and spices.


Shanghai Wonton: Wonton chicken soup enough to share


Hot and Sour Soup: Overall the flavors of this soup was not bad however they’ve put in way too much corn starch. The soup itself was thick and gloopy and not very enjoyable.


Beef Wrap: Again, another disappointing execution of a fairly basic dish. The beef wrap was dry. The filling majority was sliced cucumber with very little beef. The beef that was there was quite dry and flavorless.


Overall, we were quite disappointed with our experience here at Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine and will not return. For the price point I would have expected more than mediocre. There are far better restaurants in Richmond than to visit Yuan’s.
