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

The skinny: Parking: free garage behind the restaurant Decor: Chinese banquet Wait time: 20-30 minutes Restrooms: dark and clean Service: stiff Food: pretty damn good I love dim sum and we came here to have lunch with Mom since she hadn't had it in a long time. This place doesn't do the carts, you just mark up the menu which... 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

Ate here when visiting Pasadena. All of our dim sum entrees were very good and only the duck was not excellent. Other posts paint it as expensive. I didn't find it overly so but perhaps that's because I'm from New York and numb to price; nevertheless for three of us to leave completely stuffed it was $40.

From a local POV, Lunasia is the typical dim sum/Chinese restaurant. However, with its prices on the higher end, comes a slightly more affluent clientele (both Chinese or even non-Chinese). My opinion of their food is that it tastes great and is pricey, and will not likely appeal to those looking for "bang for the buck". For those new or... More

Lunasia is a wonderful place to bring family and friends for delicious dim sum and other Chinese food, such as noodles, beef and seafood dishes. Expect to wait a half hour or more on a weekend for dim sum around lunchtime, but it is usually easier to get a table during the workweek. The house special noodles are delicious, as... More

My Gold Star for dim sum is still Yank SIng in San Francisco. I've tried most of the well known dim sum restaurants in LA/SGV and Lunasia most definitely leads the pack. Like Yank SIng, you get what you pay for. High quality food is expensive and I'm always willing to pay for quality food. You can't stay in business... More

Went there for Dim Sum on a Sunday and as expected, you have to wait to get a table but it is worth the wait. The restaurant is clean, nicely decorated and we felt very comfortable right away. The menu has photos for each dish which is very convenient and we we were not disappointed with the food.
