It will be quite a while before the facility is open to the public, they are currently in the process of moving in furniture and the 2nd story swimming pool has yet to be completed.

When do you start taking reservations? Any special discount?

Good place for dim sum! Honestly just like many traditional dim sum places -- they have all the dishes and even some of the ones that are hard to find in others. Definitely worth going to if you have a dim sum craving. Also, wait can be long on certain days.

The dim sum here is flavorful and freshly made. They have English menu as well as Chinese. Service was very good as they had many waiters and waitresses walking around so there was always someone to ask to get what you want. Wait times can be long especially during the weekends.

Fresh sashimi, servers are attentive. Despite the long wait, the food itself keeps patrons coming back.

One of the better Dim Sum restaurants I have ever been to! They had a decent selection with some dishes that you can't find at other Dim Sum locations. It was pretty crowded but I was seated within 10 minutes for 2 people. The carts came by quick and the service was great! It was pretty cheap too. I think the bill came out to be $25 for around 7-10 dishes. It's located upstairs in the outdoor mall. There's free parking in the parking structure. Don't need to get it validated or anything.

So far one of the better dim sum restaurants I've had so far since I've moved from NY to LA. Ha how (shrimp dumplings) were delicious and big. Siu mai (pork dumplings) were big and juicy - not the taste I would associate siu mai to be but it's good still. Chicken feet was huge and the spiciness was excellent. Pai kuat (spare ribs) had pumpkin and black beans and it was nice and tender.The intestines were not my favorite taste but my husband (the gwailo) enjoyed it.However, DO NOT get the ha cheung!! It was terrible! Shrimp was fine but the cheung fun tasted off...blahI was hoping the doufu fa (tofu custard) would be a nice after but I was not happy about it. The tofu was not smooth enough to my liking and the lady scooped way too much liquid into the dish which they usually throw out.Overall a decent place for dim sum though, would go back if it weren't so far for me.

2.5 stars for the Dim Sum. Nothing stood out, selection-wise or quality-wise. Very limited choices in the morning. Couldn't order from menu--limited to whatever was available on carts.

Steamed fish was awful. Fish not fresh at all. Smell was so bad that it appeared to be in refrigeration for at least one month. Nobody could eat it. Rest of the food was rather cold. Not coming back!!!!

Good dim sum. You can definitely tell because there's a line out the door right before it opens! Very posh interior as usual with most Chinese restaurants. Good portions and good pricing. They have a huge selection of traditional plates, and some new ones I haven't seen at other dim sum places. It's very easy to feed a large group of people here at an affordable price!

Opened for take out as of 7/30. Outstanding har gow! Soup dumplings were meh, or meh minus. Chive dumplings were excellent. Shrimp eggrolls were good, but not as good as Bao Dim Sum’s. Pork ribs were all fat and bone, but the squash it’s cooked with was hella good. Really, really good Beef Chow Fun (w/ gravy) and sautéed Green Beans. Easy to park in garage below restaurant.

Was recommended by a local. Great, flat price dim sum, around $3 each weekday and slightly more on weekends. All cart based and may do kitchen orders, just show the picture on the menu, which is a good selection with some "thumbs up" for their popular choices. Underground parking in the shopping area is free.

Good place. Love the design of the place, and things like the duck or the seasonal fish specials look great. Black bean cod was good. Fried rice was good too. Seafood fried roll was okay, a little on the sweet side.Do NOT order fried oysters. They are a doughy mess.

Hit the spot for my Covid dimsum craving without breaking my bank. One of the few places that still has under $4 dimsum. Everywhere else I've seen is $5+. My only problem was their online ordering system didn't work for guest accounts so I had to call for takeout.

They have a wide variety of dimsum and they also have a large selection of regular meals from their menu. I was really surprised on how this place is super crowded. The quality of food and fast service might be the culprit for the crowded restaurant. I'm stoked that my sister in law introduced me to this restaurant. I'll be coming back with all my peeps the next time around.

I used to think Dim Sum in Vancouver, BC, was super good and cheap. But this dim sum place in LA was spectacular. It’s the kind that waitresses push carts out and you can just pick whatever you like on the carts. You get to see what you’re really ordering. The food was really good and we ordered so much. We had 5 people and it came out to be around $75 after tip. This was much cheaper than we expected. Super good value. Will definitely go again when we go to LA next time.

Good dim sum for the price. Paid about $47 for 3 ppl before tip. The staff do try to hustle dishes onto your table though, so sometimes you gotta not "eat with your eyes" and stop ordering.

The dim sum is great. All the little dishes are made well and presented beautifully. Savory and sweets covered in one sitting, the eater is bound to satisfy any craving here, one would have to try to not enjoy dim sum here. Service is pretty attentive here, wave down ANY of the staff and they will help you, it's quite simple. I recommend just be patient, there will be times where they will be dealing with 3 other parties, so spare some compassion and again, patience. Other then that, any dim sum goes, I believe will not be disappointed. Eat well, eat for two more (girlfriend and I) please. Enjoy!

There's usually a wait here if you come during lunchtime, but it moves along pretty quickly. There's a great variety of dim sum to choose from and the carts go by. You can also point at the pictures if what you want to your waiter if you don't want to pick things off the carts as they come by. This place a hustling, bustling atmosphere. There are plenty of Asians eating here, so it's legit. Delicious!

Good old fashion dim sum served in carts & a good flavorful pot of hot jasmine tea leaves =) (not in bags). A good place to meet up and do not expect a quick bite. Takes time for dim sum dishes to come out of the kitchen. Well worth the wait.

Dim sum here is good. It's a huge place, so you won't have to worry too much about not getting seated during weekday lunch, which gets pretty busy. They're one of the few places that have bittermelon.

This is an extremely popular dim sum place. In a neighborhood that you can find a dim sum restaurant every corner, this place earn its customers by the quality of the food that they offer. They are famous with egg yolk bao. Expect long waiting line. Plenty of underground parking. 7 people with a bill of $115
