No carts, but check-off sheets for what you want and the servers are wired so they are calling in your order even as they walk to ring it up. Food arrives as it is prepared: piping hot, dish by dish. Because we know our way...More

Being downtown Pasadena, parking is a challenge. Upon entering you check in and they give you a number that is called out when a table is available. For us disabled guys, you can ask for a table on the main floor since there is no...More

We enjoyed great service and beautiful dim sum dishes in a modern eclectic environment. We loved the vegetarian dumpling and the BBQ pork Bao. The atmosphere was very enjoyable and the wait staff very friendly and helpful. A great find near Old Town Pasadena.

Went there as it was trendy and in downtown. Big crowd for lunch but wait was just about 30 mins. Dim sum was OK. And nothing was a big surprise in good or bad way. Will I go back? Hmm, just nothing really stood out.

Dim Sum is some of my favorite food. Lunasia comes close to that which can be found in Hong Kong, Shanghai, or even the eastern San Gabriel Valley. These are to me what separates this place from being a truly great place. There are no...More
