Sha Tin Wai Station is a station on the Ma On Shan Line in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. It was originally named as "Sha Kok Street Station" before the Ma On Shan Line operated, because it is exactly located at Sha Kok Street in Sha Tin.

It serves residents living in Pok Hong Estate, Sha Kok Estate, Jat Min Chuen, Yue Shing Court, and also serves over 10 schools around the area, including kindergartens, primary schools and secondary schools. The name of the station is taken from a traditional walled Hakka village next to Pok Hong estate.

The pattern featured on the platform pillar and glass barrier is a shot of Tsang Tai Uk traditional walled settlement.
