First time at this restaurant. Located on Colorado Blvd in downtown Pasadena. Very busy and apparently popular. Service was OK, but think cafeteria. Dim Sum is ordered off a menu. I prefer Dim Sum restaurants that offer Dim Sum from carts, but I get the...More

We waited about 45 minutes for a table for lunch, but it was well worth the wait. Lunasia is a Chinese Cuisine known for delectable Chinese dishes in a Cantonese food style prepared as "small bites" and served with tea. As we waited for a...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.

That’s right, no carts. They give you a menu with some pictures and prices, and a list you can check what you’d like. First timer, and loved it. Wish they had more places like this. (Maybe I just don’t know it?)

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.
