Best Dim Sum place in Alhambra

We were there for a Saturday brunch. At 9:30, seats were quickly filled up. By 10:15, there is a short waiting line. The restaurant is nicely located in a small business building with ample parking spaces. Its very nicely decorated and well organized. We ordered about 10 Dim Sum plates. We thought... read more

Chinese banquet décor and we easily found on street parking around the corner. Apparently there is also free parking around back. At first I drove right by this place, because there is no ENGLISH name out front. We dined early dinner on a Tuesday and there was no wait. I am told weekends it could be 20-30 minutes. Rest rooms...

My stock club had our annual meeting here and celebrated with a sumptuous banquet. Eight courses of delicious dishes, including Peking duck. It was a special occasion and we had our own room seated around a large table. Service was very good and timely.

There are about 16 dim sim places in SGV. This is the only two or three offering all day dim sim. The place is relatively small and less noisy. The price is somewhat high. The food is slightly above average.

Recommend by a friend, a group of us met there for Saturday dim sum. Quite a drive from where I live but the food was worth the effort. No carts so you have to order off the menu but the food came quickly and served piping hot. Every dish we had ranked as high as the better dim sum places... More

Visited this place last week on a weekday. Friend recommends it highly but didn't take him seriously because sum sum is dim sum, right? And Chinese restaurant is Chinese restaurant, what do you expect? Well, totally surprised after driving 30 miles. This is easily the BEST dim sum I have ever had. Wait is OK because we got there at... More

Order all your faves on the handy dandy tri-fold menu and your selections will be quickly brought to your table fresh from the kitchen. I was never a big fan of the cart-thing and very happy to see more dim sum restaurants going this route. We liked everything we ordered. Our favorites were all represented very nicely, and we even...

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 and Vegetarian delight. They all very delicious... 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.
