Dim sum is well prepared, varied and arrived piping hot. The noise level is deafening but pretty similar to most large Chinese restaurants. Perhaps a bit on the pricey side but you get what you pay for

One item always on my list is their deep fried squid... yummy! The service is prompt and efficient. There is free underground parking in the same building which is... More

Visited and dined in their Richmond branch in the 90s. Still the same excellent food. Great variety and tasty dim sums. Delicious fried noodle dishes. Excellent service and friendly wait staff.

Our favourite place to go for Dim Sum in Vancouver. Great food, prompt service and friendly staff. We also get take out. The Mapo Tofu is the best I have ever had and the Beef Chow Fun is worth trying as well We will be back

We were 5 and ordered roast duck, free range chicken, lettuce wrap, scallops and veggies, salty spicy deep fried tofu and... More

The remains of the Crab is deep fried to salt and pepper crab. Lastly the 3rd course is the crab fried rice. The service is impeccable, they show you the crab before they... More

Today I was invited by a friend to join him and his friends for Dim Sum at the “Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant” in Vancouver. It was good that a table was booked in advance since later was there a line-up for getting into the restaurant. The service was friendly and attentive; the tea and water pots were refilled regularly.... More

Good dim sum with lots of choices! The food is good, the service is very fast and the value for money is reasonable. We had lots of leftover food which they happily packed up for us to go.

Made a bad decision to come here on our last visit to Vancouver. The place was dirty and the food and service were dreadful. The quality of the dim sum was poor. Basics like har gao and siu mai were bland and tasteless and either over-steamed or not fresh (i.e. cooked from frozen). Cheung fun was greasy and bland and... More
