If we could go to only one restaurant for the rest of our lives, Super Star would rank high on the list. Although there are probably better restaurants in Denver, sitting in that blank, almost anonymous space (just a restaurant-shaped hole in Alameda Square, next to the place that offers herbal medicine, phone cards and tax advice, just down from the other place with the $1.99 Mexican lunch combos), we can't quite remember their names. Though Super Star offers a regular lunch and dinner menu full of excellent and very authentic Chinese dishes (everything from sea cucumber and shark fin soup to French-influenced beef in wine sauce and congee porridges), the real draw here is the daily dim sum, paraded past on wheeled carts. If you've never been before, just walk in, wait your turn, take a table and then start pointing. A meal here is the next best thing to breakfast, lunch and dinner in Hong Kong.

How dare you give the honor of best of to an evil restaurant that is promoting the destruction of the shark species by serving shark fin soup. The Denver Westword is just as responsible as the restaurant. You are promoting an evil practice and ruining are planet.

I've always loved good authentic ethnic food, and Asian food is a particular favorite of mine. I was already a dim sum fan several years ago, but after living in Hong Kong for several months, I must say that Super Star is the closest match (in all of Colorado) to the delicious food I ate while in Hong Kong. Earlier this year I was actually there 9 Sundays in a row, because every time I'd talk about the restaurant, I had more friends who wanted to try it. I had no problem going back week after week. The dim sum is great and so is the food from their regular menu. The prices are very reasonable, and they're open late every day. It's also fun to practice what little Cantonese I know. The only thing they don't have is an online menu so I can call in my takeout order right now!

No! this place is disgusting. Sure I never came during dimsum hours, but I tried their shrimpballs and it is bland and the batter is gummy and tried abalone mushroom, not good. Basic items like fried noodle at best is mediocre and I came here 3 times!! go a few blocks up to empress or JJ's for a better chinese dining experience. (p.s kingsland is nasty and bland!!!)

The best dimsum place I've been to in Denver (affordable too). But then again I heard there is another really great place down in Highlands Ranch, but its a bit pricey(I dun remember the name) Anywayz..if anyone wants good dimsum. This is the place to go.

The best dimsum in Denver, and I thought Kingsland and Dyanasty was the only good dimsum in Denver. Super star matches the tastet and quality that dimsum in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Manila & Hong Kong has to offer. Finally there is a good and authentic chinese resto in Colorado.
