    The dim sums were delicious. Loved the spicy shrimp and sesame ball. The tea disappoints unfortunately as unlike any traditional dim sum house was made from tea bags.

    My new favorite place in LA. All-day specials at the bar include $2 Sapporo drafts, $4 glasses of wine and $4 spicy shrimp dumplings (which I want for dinner every night starting now).

    Amazing pork buns. Get sticky wrapped sticky rice with pork. The bak Choi is good too.

    The dim sum is made to order. Don't expect this to be your authentic, typical or rowdy dim sum joint. More American customers in an upscale environment. Good quality food nonetheless.

    They will tell you that all of the dumplings are big - they aren't that big. You need at least 2 orders of the juicy pork dumplings.

    Best lunch. The juicy pork and chicken spinach are great. We didn't know it was happy hour and were pleasantly surprised by our bill. This place is a must.

    Super tasty dim sum. Go for happy hour. Sort of a bummer that they don't do the carts, but the food is tasty regardless.

    Diet-friendly accommodations + friendly staff. Our waitress Misun is sweet. She made sure the dishes were tailor-made even though we didnt ask her to. This allowed everyone to sample all the dishes!

    Juicy pork buns and the pork and spinach potstickers are my favorite! Truthfully, nothing I've ever had here was anything but amazing.

    Pretty much hit the whole menu. Mochi Dumplings and Chicken Potstickers are hands down the best.

    Two words: milk buns. They taste and feel the way you'd think a cloud should taste and feel. Life-changing, man.

    Wild crab dumplings-extra sticky and so good. Real crab meat and generous filling. Crispy Taro Ball and Honey Walnut prawn are by far my fav!

    Juicy pork buns are a must. However, be aware, the amazing half-price lunch special is no more :(

    Limited dimsum menu but what they do, they do a pretty good job at, at about $1.00-1.50 premium over San Gabriel valley dimsum spots.

    If you want authentic Dim Dum, this probably isn't the place for you.As a western attempt at Dim Sum it's a mediocre (albeit more expensive than it should be) experience missing some essentials.

    Heres a tip. If you want westernized chinese goodness, go to panda express. If you want dim sum, do not go to bao
