The hungry and the picky have chosen Metro Vancouver's best Chinese restaurants.

A record number of diners took on the delicious task of selecting the best of the best from 18 categories for the fifth annual Chinese Restaurant Awards.

The 2013 winners show that diners stuck to old favourites for some categories but sitched allegiances in others.

For the fifth consecutive year, Hong Kong BBQ Master reclaimed its "best BBQ shop" title. That's remarkable considering that the tiny business operates out of a parking lot beneath a supermarket.

Satisfy your har gow and siu mai cravings at Fisherman's Terrace Seafood Restaurant, who stole the coveted "best dim sum" title from Richmond's Jade Seafood Restaurant.

Looking for the best Northern Chinese fare? Line up for a choice table at Sha Lin Noodle House with a view of the kitchen to witness the chef hand-pull and twist a hard slab of dough into strands of soft, fine-combed noodles. Starting at $8.95 per bowl, it's also among the cheapest dinners you'll score in Vancouver.

Check out the Chinese Restaurant Award Winners of 2013 as selected by diners. Story continues below slideshow:
