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

Went there for a birthday party. The dishes are highly overrated and expensive. We ordered crab, lobster, noodles, rice and soup and our bill came to $300! The dishes were cold and all served separately. At first we had crab , then lobster, then noodles and then rice! Aren't we suppose to eat all that together?! I have been to... More

A visit to Sun Sui Wah was certainly worth the drive. We did book a table, which may be advisable, especially on weekends. The service was swift and attentive and the food - was just tasty and unbelievable. There was five of us so we had the chance to try several dishes and I was still licking my fingers half... More

The food here is excellent. You need to know your dim sum as they do not do the push carts - pity. I would give 5 stars if they still had the carts.

This place is totally underrated. Again, goes where the locals go! It's really crowded even though it's not voted among the top restaurants in Richmond. Probably a way for the locals to protect their gem. Food is great and service is friendly. The serving uncle implored us to have the free desserts before we leave. Fortunately we obeyed and no...

During our stay in Vancouver, we had dinners twice at this restaurant. Both times we had great times. The dishes were extremely delicious, and they were authentic Chinese! The restaurant was very clean and bright, and the dished were served very quickly. They also did extra for us - they helped us charge our cell phone both times. I will... More

We used to go here almost every day we visit B.C. The food and service are very good. Outside of Koi Palace in SF Bay area, this is probably one of the better dimsum places there is.

Neighbourhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
