Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Super Star Asian may rate as the Best Dim Sum in Denver, but according to Chinese Restaurant News magazine, the Empress Dim Sum Seafood Restaurant -- a more upscale, white-tablecloth joint located nearby at 2825 West Alameda Avenue -- ranks as the sixth-best Chinese restaurant in America, far ahead of Super Star.

But Super Star did rate a spot on the magazine's list of top regional Chinese cuisines, as did China Jade in Aurora. Other Colorado restaurants that made the magazine's list last month: Saigon Landing in Evergreen, Canton Palace in Loveland and Hunan Imperial in Evans. That's right, Evans.

By the way, the Empress is also a great place to throw a karaoke birthday.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
