The BBQ pork noodle wrap is excellent. The noodles and rice stir fry's were stay and came out quick in spite of them being very busy. The tea was delicious and although we didn't have any of the wonton soups, they looked absolutely fabulous. GooglePlace - November 2017

Maybe it’s just me...I really wanted to like this place, but the food wasn’t very good. It was tasteless, bland, not flavorful. I gave it 3 stars because the staff was very friendly and the place is clean. Sam Wo restaurant is apparently world famous and it’s clear that many people enjoy the food, so it’s definitely not inedible. However, it’s highly unlikely that I’ll ever eat here again.

Randomly found this place via an online article and I’m glad I did! Waiter recommended their famous pork egg roll which isn’t your standard egg roll. Unique, delicious and no carb! The house special fried rice and sesame chicken are not to be missed. Their dumpling noodle soup is also something you don’t find in every Chinese food place. Pricey but you get a good amount of food to last you a few meals. Can’t wait to go back. GooglePlace - October 2017

Excellent. Great food, great service, great value. Easily accessible to the non-Chinese amongst us, whilst frequented by those who actually know what they’re talking about. Pro-tip: Just because something is 9 bucks, doesn’t mean you won’t be stuffed. GooglePlace - October 2017

Un 'must' si vienes al barrio chino: la comida está riquísima y nada mal de precio! De aquí salió la famosa camarera que gritaba a todo el mundo xD Foursquare - September 2017
