Picks:

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Vancouver BC Canada shrimp dumplings

Steamed prawn dumpling or har gow ($4.20) were four very large and piping hot dumplings of decent quality.

Steamed spareribs in black bean sauce ($3.75) were a solid rendition, very high on quantity, no noodles underneath, and decent flavor.

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Vancouver BC Canada Pea shoot shrimp dumplings

Shrimp and pea shoot dumplings ($4.20) had three large nice dumplings with strong pea shoot flavors.

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Vancouver BC Canada daikon cake

Pan fried daikon cake ($3.75) were very good and had a nice crust. They were hot out of the kitchen, had a very good flavor, and a fair amount of rice flour.

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Vancouver BC Canada deep fried pork dumplings

Deep-fried mixed meat puff or dumpling ($3.75) were hot out of the kitchen and very good. Slightly greasy and very crispy.

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Vancouver BC Canada sesame balls

Deep-fried sesame balls ($3.75) had dark sesame filling inside, and an interesting sweet salty accent.

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Vancouver BC Canada Mango pudding

Mango pudding ($3.20) have lots of little mango chunks, some condensed milk on top, and was on the sweet side.

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Vancouver BC Canada squab

Roast squab ($12.80) is one of their signature dishes, so we had to order it even at lunch. It is definitely a top-quality squab with crispy skin and a juicy tender inside. Slightly greasy.

OK:

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Vancouver BC Canada shrimp Rice roll noodle

Steamed shrimp rice roll or rice noodle ($4.75) was okay, not the greatest around but still edible.

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Vancouver BC Canada Lotus wrapped sticky glutinous rice

Lotus wrapped sticky rice ($4.20) was okay not much meat inside or special ingredients.

Pans:
None

Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant had very good service during our lunch. They had a ton of servers running round. It was is easy to order and they kept our tea pot full. The food quality wasn’t the best we encountered on our trip, but clearly good enough for most people. Kirin Mandarin is a better bet for dim sum in downtown Vancouver. Venture out to Richmond, and hit even better dim sum at Sea Harbor.
