“Pleasent Surprise”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Through a recommendation of a friend, the four of us had a late dinner here. We all were very pleasantly surprised and found the shared dishes to be both delicious and affordable. I will come back when next in Vancouver.

“Pricey side for Dim Sum”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Went here for lunch. Didn't know we had to color in what we wanted to we were waiting for like 15 minutes before the waiter told us what we had to do. No food carts in this place so the food is cooked to order. Comes out piping hot! Very good food but a little on the pricey side We ordered 4 small dishes and came to over $40 and the service was on the slow side though we admit it was packed with people.

“Very Disappointed”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

In planning our trip to Vancouver we were really looking forward to excellent Chinese food. Sun Sui Wah was highly recommended. The service was not very attenentive and the food was at best average. The garlic shrimp was poor and the Peking Duck was greasy and both dishes from the duck were bland. It was also expensive for the ambiance and quality.

“Food was great”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Just had Dim Sum with a friend. W ordered 5 dishes. One didn't come so we had to remind the waiter. It wasn't very tasty so we should have cancelled it as we had already finished most of our meal. $30 for two people ... not bad.

“So tasty, so memorable”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We've eaten dim sum in cities across the world but this is the only time I've come close to weeping over the quality of it. Every dish was tastier than the last. Most of the items that we ordered we've had at other restaurants, but the taste was incomparable. We were actually sad when we couldn't stuff anymore down because there were so many other dishes that we wanted to try. They even have a tea menu! The service was really good, which is not always the case at dim sum.

I wish that I could eat dim sum there every week. Since I can't, I'll have to comfort myself with the knowledge that I will return on my next visit to Vancouver.
