Excellent Dim Sum place

We were here on a Sunday brunch. We're totally satisfied from the very beginning . Short wait- five minutes Then nicely seated. Services were great and efficient. Dim Sum dishes coming one by one, not rushed. Very fresh and steamy hot. We ordered Har Gou, Shu My and Soft rice cake, Taro cake... read more

This review is for the original Lunasia location in Alhambra-- they've recently opened a dim sum restaurant right on Colorado Blvd. in Old Pasadena, but I have not yet visited that location. Lunasia has some of the best dim sum in the SGV, with the lunchtime crowds to match. Portions are large, so order accordingly. For instance, the ha gao... More

I've had dim sum for lunch and it's been excellent. Wide choice of dumplings and the other dishes that go with them. Many times, I've gone in with my list of items to order, waited about 15 minutes and gone home with boxes of delicious treats.

This is simply one of the best dim sum "experiences" I have had anywhere - including Taiwan. Lunasia is a very attractive restaurant with very attentive, friendly staff. The menu includes traditional dim sum items with some additional creative offerings. The food preparation and presentation are excellent.

Excellent Dim-Sum and Chinese delicacies in Pasadena. Large portions, reasonably priced menu. Service was great. A full array of all good things this restaurant offers, even after the traditional times of serving dim-sum, (for breakfast or early lunch), were available at 8pm. Simplest menu I've ever used where all foods offered are pictured, sizes are clearly stated, and prices are... More

I ordered some dim sum (6 dishes) for take out today. 10-15 minutes later a young lady brought out my dim sums to me and I took the bag and left. By the time I drove back home, I found that it only contained 4 of the 6 dishes. Oh well... I lost $8 bucks and I guess someone else... More

Four of us ate a great lunch. I was pleasantly surprised how tasty the dishes were. The flavors and spices were perfectly dispersed throughout each bite. I usually don't get excited about shumai. This however was wonderful. The shrimp was moist and juicy. The pork was spiced just right and they went together . Each bite was delicious. I ordered... More
