One of the only places I know of to go for dim sum in San Diego. I've heard Pearl in RB is better but haven't tried yet. This place is ok.

The red-red-red decor can be a bit much, but if you get it the mood, order a lobster with black bean sauce and a bottle of Chardonnay, things will be alright.

While visiting my sister, we decided on dim sum for lunch. We considered two other restaurants but opted to try Jasmine. We were seated right away & the dim sum carts arrived. There was a nice selection to choose from. The Chinese broccoli, baked pork buns, & pineapple bread were tasty and worth ordering. I have had excellent dim sum in Las Vegas, Hong Kong, & KL so it is hard not to compare what we ate at Jasmine with those. While Jasmine's dim sum is decent, it in no way compares with others I have had. Restaurant service was good.

This restaurant has a split personality...I've been eating here with my family for more than 10 years; however,the "very good" rating that I gave this restaurant primarily reflects the quality of the dim sum. To prepare yourself for this restaurant, you need to understand the unique experience of eating in an authentic dim sum establishment. Be prepared for many rolling carts filled with small portions of many Chinese appetizers, and know that you'll be surrounded by many large Asian families, which is a sign of a highly regarded Chinese restaurant. It's easy to over-order and run up a major-league billl, so be patient and look carefully at the food on the carts before deciding which delicacies to order.I've been less impressed with the entrees which, wihile tasty, are expensive and don't represent a reasonable value. Come here for the dim sum (from around 11:00 AM to about 3:00 PM), but look elsewhere at dinnertime.

Very traditional Dim Sum restaurant. A fun ethnic experience with lots o options to try a wide variety of unique dishes. It can be crowded on weekends with very large parties. You know you've made a good ethnic food decision when it is packed with people of that foods origin. Don't forget you can order dishes off the menu if you want something besides dim sum. Don't let the process intimidate you. Enjoy a little bit of China right here in SD!
