Food and staff fantastic one of the best around up with the best in Melbourne and better than most food quality is second to none fusion and blend of ingredients incredible . Mordialloc is the new st kilda but with class and atmosphere.

Ordered the Yum Cha at home kit, and couldn’t be more happy! Value for money - you get SO much food, I almost wasn’t able to finish, but it was too delicious to leave. My favourite dish from the yum cha menu was the Rendang...Curry Puffs - they were out of this world! The Macarons were also scrumptious, you could honestly sell them by the batch! The team were helpful and friendly, and they were very time efficient. I pre-ordered and it arrived within the time slot I had chosen, even on a busy Saturday! I’ll be ordering from here again.More

Sun Wah has opened up for dine in with a bang! We got the tapas banquet and were not disappointed! So much food, prepared to an excellent quality and the staff were friendly and attentive. Salt and pepper calamari and ginger prawn dumplings a stand...out, the dessert platter with the bombe Alaska on fire is always a treat! We come here often for special birthday dinners and the quality and taste of the food is always worth it- Thankyou for your wonderful hospitality. I’d also like to thank Sun Wah for providing generous donations of meals to the local hospital workers (like myself) during this time, at a time where I imagine small businesses are doing it tough they have stepped up and shown an incredible amount of generosity and kindness that won’t be forgotten- Thankyou so much.More

We were looking to support this restaurant during these challenging times for small businesses by ordering their Take away banquet after receiving an email from them. The standard and presentation of the food reflects their eat- in dining experience. Delicious as always. The food is...piping hot and they will bring the food out to your car on arrival, if you wish, after ordering online. They have now teamed with a neighbouring gelato store for dessert to finish off the banquet. Take home packs of their dumplings are also available.More

Course 1 - dumplings (superb) Course 2 - Peking duck wrap (very good) Course 3 - beef fillets stir fried (superb) Course 4 - battered calamari and prawn...deep fried (average) Course 5 - desert (superb) - one of best I've had The sweet and sour pork is the best we've had and we have eaten this so so many times elsewhere. Honey chicken was average. Staff were very friendly and always on hand Overall really good meals and I enjoyed our visitMore

Was recommended going to this iconic restaurant and was so glad I tried it. Had a wonderful dinner experience. Great service, friendly faces, good atmosphere and of course, wonderful food. It was great to talk with the owner and chef ‘Rowena’ about the unique 50...year ownership and how she has merged old chinese with the new age fusion style cuisine Definately will return and try more of the menu.More

8 smallish dishes that were beautifully presented. Just enough and we managed to get to the end. Couldn’t fault any of them. Service was attentive and friendly. Nice greeting - good atmosphere and background music. I loved it- I will be back.

Sun Wah in one word was disappointing. We waited over half an hour for entrees which did not come out all together. The entree of steamed scallops with black bean sauce (a house special) were stone cold on the inside. We then waited well over...an hour for the mains to be served after sitting down and to be honest the mains were average at best. Service was quick from our servers at first but quickly tapered off. Will not be going back again.More

Hi Marcos, thank you for submitting your feedback and are sad to hear you were disappointed on this occasion. As a family business we value your feedback but such a negative review is damaging to business. Nevertheless I thought Marco your table enjoyed the food...More
