A very convenient way to experience the variety of dim sum. Similar to many sushi restaurants, they provide a picture-studded and numbered key from which you mark an order sheet with your selections. Portions were larger than expected. We probably ordered too much variety. It was a bit strange for a restaurant that relies completely on chop sticks to serve... More

Lunasia is located on Main Street in Alhambra. You can park in the covered parking lot which they share with other merchants in the plaza. There is a wide variety of dim sum to choose from as well as noodle and rice dishes. It is a bit more expensive than other local Chinese restaurants but I think it is worth... More

Great dimsum but the wait was torture for table of 6 we had to wait over 50 minutes!! Or else I would give them 5 stars. The dimsum servers have mouth guards and the waiters and waitresses and quick and polite. Try the jalapeño spicy turnip cake. TRUST ME! I'd never would've thought!!!

The menu at Lunasia is fairly easy to navigate. You check things off that you want. They have a laminated placemat type menu that shows you pictures of everything with their numbers...that helps people who don't know the names of what they're looking for. No Cantonese style cart service here. While most of what we tried was good, they didn't... More

First, good safe free covered parking behind the restaurant. Second, very nicely decorated: linen table clothes and napkins and orchids on every table. Third, wonderful selection of made-to-order dim sum. We had a nice selections of fried rice, jumbo shrimp har-gow, jumbo pork siu-mai,(when they say jumbo, they mean it--almost too much to eat), egg rolls, and sauteed egg plant.... More

This is another good place serving dim sum. Lots of food choices. Hard to pick which plates to try. The green bean dish was tasty. The dumplings were delicious. There seems to be a couple of restaurants by this name in this area.

Hit the justly famed Lunasia for a late Dim Sum. The Dim Sum is uniformly excellent. We especially enjoyed the hargao, massive shu mai, and rice noodle with shrimp. It's an orderly experience, as you pick from a menu rather than picking from the carts as they go by.

We went to Lunasia for dinner and did not order dim sum. We were not disappointed as the good was good, well prepared, well presented, and very tasty. The service was good. It is a little pricey but we did enjoy it.

This place has become our top choice for dim sum. It serves quality dim sum in Pasadena, ALL DAY! I enjoyed most of the dishes. It is a bit more expensive but nice enough to take our non-Asian friends without giving them a real "cultural experience." It is nice and airy and very clean and not overcrowded or noisy. We...
