Best dimsum ever!!!

I just love the selection of their little plates of dimsum. It is so authentic. Not such a long wait because this restaurant is huge! Not so expensive , too, which is a plus!

Being Chinese, you eat here because you either want to or not. My last trip here was a for a friend's wedding banquet. Not the first one that I've had here, but the most recent one was actually pretty good. The fish was excellent for once and the rest of the usual banquet fare was better than the most recent...

This is one of my favorites for dim sum on a weekend. Although it gets pack and there are no reservations, you should come early. Despite being a large hall of tables, they do get crowded and in spite of the many mouths to feed, they do get their dim sum plates out fast and often. This is the reason... More

This is one of the best in Los Angeles. It's not for beginners, as others have pointed out that most of the serves can't translate the items. Still, a lot of it can be figured out. Certainly worth the adventure. For regular afficionados, this is is must, and worth the drive from anywhere in L.A.

The best dimsum ever hands down! But go with someone who speaks Chinese. Or be preapred to point and gesticulate and feel confused by the answers to your question, "what's that?"
