Sun Sui Wah Seafood Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Sun Sui Wah, located in restaurant central, the Golden Village, offers some of the best and most authentic Cantonese cooking around. A must-try is the benchmark dish: crispy-skinned roasted squab made from a carefully guarded recipe originating at the original Hong Kong Sun Sui Wah. Everything else is modern, including the dining room d├ęcor. Check out the live lobsters and crabs in the big tanks; seafood selections range from steamed scallops on silky bean curd topped with creamy-crunchy tobiko sauce to fried halibut with ginger and green onions and braised fish maw and sea cucumber with Chinese mushrooms. Fragrantly sweet tapioca baked beneath a golden crust or cool, silken mango pudding makes an ideal finish. Constant midday lineups attest to the quality of the made-to-order authentic dim sum, such as the deep-fried taro dumplings, silky har gow, radish cakes with XO sauce, lobster congee and shrimp noodles. A full bar provides libations for everyone and includes a good selection of Cantonese food-friendly wines. Service is swift, attentive and always courteous.
