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.

I will review the original Lunasia in Alhambra with higher ratings for two reasons: Pasadena Lunasia charges slightly higher per order and there is no free public parking. Both Alhambra and Pasadena have the same menu and taste similarly good. We arrived about 11:30 am...More

This restaurant has some of the best Chinese dim sum I've ever had! We tried a few different options, and then moved onto the Scallop Fried Rice, and the Peking Duck, which were both excellent! The wait staff was minimally attentive, but the food came...More
