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

Good atmosphere, service, and food was the best part. The Dim Sum we had was excellent, food arrived late (approx. 30 minute wait) but staff compensated by paying the entire bill for us. Definitely recommend.

The dim sum is so good we had to go twice on our recent visit to make sure! Both visits were great, service is friendly and efficient and prices very reasonable. The restaurant is large with an upstairs seating area, the second time we visited,...More
