The food here is delicious! We split a dinner from the menu and tried dim sum. Great price, and fresh, amazing food. Highly recommend!!

My favorite dim sum place. The BBQ pork buns have the right balance of bread and BBQ pork (char siu). The siu mai has just the right balance of pork and shrimp. Everything that I tried was good.

...and the price was very reasonable...

Alas, on this last trip, I can't find them at their old spot. I hope they moved and did not close the restaurant.

This is our favorite dim sum place. We used to go to Phoenix but we think this is better. Typical Chinatown place which means low on atmosphere (except for lots of happy people chowing down.) It's all about the dim sum here which is excellent. Low prices too! Highly recommended.

Happy Chef trumps Shui Wah Chinese Cuisine.

Authentic Dim Sum except the tables are tightly fit and you order the Dim Sum from a menu rather than them coming around with a cart to entice you with different dishes. Well worth the wait here!
