Great dim sum, and take out, too

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

This is one of the best dim sum place in the San Gabriel Valley area. However, the wait time is not acceptable, long enough that make you want to leave and think twice when going back. Awesome place for dim sum regardless the wait time and average customer services. Quite easy for parking (street & structured). I would highly recommend... More

I love good dim sum and I just found out about this place from a friend. It's a bit more expensive but the quality of the food justifies the cost. The wait is a little longer because it's smaller than other larger dim sum establishments but it's worth it. It's really clean inside and the food comes out really quickly... More
