Super Star has at least three menus, maybe four, listing dim sum during the day and dinner after that, with one version for Chinese-speaking customers and another for everyone else, and listing everything from siu mai to shark's fin soup. The dim sum offerings change every day, and every day they are amazing, overwhelming, habit-forming to the point of being nearly narcotic.
Super Star Asian nearly doubled in size last year, but securing a table here -- especially on the weekends, when hunger-pained customers line up like dominoes to get their dim sum fix -- is never easy. An eclectic mix of Asian families, American groups, couples and intrepid stalwarts with massive hangovers scramble for tables in the chaotic crowd of faces, most of which are buried in bamboo steamers filled with everything from divine shrimp-and-chive dumplings to pudgy lotus-leaf...

Even a recent expansion hasn't thinned the impenetrable crowds that descend upon Super Star Asian. They huddle and mutter under their breath near the doorway, their eyes peering over the cavernous combat zone, where fast-moving carts dash between big, round tables covered with bamboo steamers of everything under the dim sum sun: terrific shu mai and congee, salt-and-pepper shrimp, barbecued pork buns and egg-custard tarts, chicken feet and Peking duck. And while you'll bust your belt, beg... More »
The spartan Super Star Asian is primarily known for its dim sum, but that's really just the start of what it does. The restaurant has another menu for those days that aren't Saturday or Sunday, those hours that aren't between early morning and just-past-noon. It is this menu that offers the quote/unquote French-style cubed beef in black sauce, the shark's fin soup, the jellyfish salad and the completely non-threatening sesame chicken. As a dim sum restaurant, Super Star is among the best in... More »
We've lost count of how many different versions of dumplings are served at Super Star; of how many different ways pork can be prepared; of how many huge plates of delicious salt-and-pepper shrimp we've seen disappear just before the cart makes it to our table. But an unexpectedly delicious dish is always just a cart away. Taro balls, for example -- who would've thought taro balls could be so good? And even the simplest plate of steamed greens is a treat, Chinese collards redolent of... More »
When it opened early in 2006, Super Star Asian didn't just raise the bar on Chinese cuisine. It took the bar, broke it over its knee, threw the pieces away and then made an entirely new bar that's held so high you can't even see it from the kitchens of most of the Chinese joints in this town. The daily dim sum is amazing -- an ever-changing, never-ending panoply of delicious things to shove in your mouth, the best you're going to find anywhere outside of Chinatown in San Francisco or New...

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... More »
Shark fin soup is nothing but a symbol of a status for Chinese!!! It has no nutritional value or tatse what so ever. It gives only some texture. It is really a SHAME to consume shark fin soup. It's inhuman to support the shark finning and restaurants that sell this product!!!!
SAY NO TO SHARK FINNING, REMAIN HUMANS !!!! SHAME ON YOU Super Star Asian!!!!
JUST SAY NO TO SHARK FIN SOUP. Was really looking forward to going there for Dim Sum. Since I heard that it has some of the best Dim Sum and one of the very few places in Denver to get my favorite thing BBQ pork Bao's. BUT being a huge supporter of the stop shark finning cause. There is no way I would ever set foot in a place that serves Shark Fin soup. Can't believe they are allowed to even serve it. NO way Superstar!! NO way will I ever come to your restaurant.

"Yes, please." "Yes, please." "Yes, please." For two solid hours at Super Star Asian, from one until three on a Sunday afternoon, the food never stopped coming. Brought on carts and plates, on unbreakable orange plastic cafeteria trays... More »
I had my very first bowl of shark's fin soup last week at Super Star Asian (see review). As a culinary indulgence, it wasn't worth the money; if I'm paying $46 for a bowl of soup, it had better come garnished with about $38 in small bills. But as... More »
