Due to the large number of dim sum restaurants in the area, it's not unusual for us to go for years before returning to a restaurant that we've previously tried before... even one that we've quite enjoyed. Sun Sui Wah used to be one of the more popular dim sum restaurants in Vancouver/Richmond (they have locations in both cities) but... More

This is a large restaurant with lots of seating, but a very nice restaurant with white table cloths, nice lighting and the seats are comfortable. The food is excellent. From the noodles to the all the little dim sum dishes and the tea..everything was very tasty. I lean toward the shrimp, pork, and crab offerings and the steamed buns. The... More

Sun Sui Was was a great choice. When you see the live seafood in tanks and the restaurant is busy at 6:00 PM you know you have chosen the right restaurant. The food we ordered was delivered very fast and was fresh and delicious.The sweet & sour seafood soup was great. We had some seafood dished and a beef and... More

We happened in on an evening where the bulk of the restaurant was taken up for a wedding reception. After about a 30 min wait we were seated in a tiny back room. The overall feel of the place was a bit grungy and chaotic...perhaps due to the wedding. We held out hope and we're not disappointed. The food is... More

We had dim sum for lunch on a weekday in mid August. Food was great. Portions of each dim sum dish was huge. Coming from the US, we usually don't get this kind of portions and good quality of fillings. The shrimp dumplings was filled with large shrimps and no heavy msg taste. Same with shrimp rice rolls. Service was... More

Very good authentic Cantonese seafood. We ordered live prawns from the tank, sea cucumbers, quails, etc. All excellent. However, it is pricey. It is in line with other top Chinese seafood restaurants; it is not $$. Decor a bit dated. Service good.

Coming here for Dim Sum on a long layover, we were happy to find good service greeting us to be served good dim sum. We had the Shrimp dumplings which were the biggest I have had all over the world, with great flavor. The bean curd rolls were excellent too. The curry squid could have had more curry however very...

The dim sum are fresh with the shrimps almost crunchy when chewed. I liked the beef in white radish soup. The broth has just the right balance of a beefy taste which is mixed with the slightly pungent radish.

Highly recommended we arrived early before a noon crowd arrived. Somewhat different.There were no carts or rush. All items were ordered separately for fresh delivery and unrushed dining. Items were excellent. One of the best dim sum restaurants we have eaten at
