This restaurant may be popular by reviews but if you are going with just one other person, you will probably have to wait over an hour and half. They will take reservations for parties of more than two otherwise you will have groups being seated that have come in an hour later than you. Must be discriminating against parties of... More

I'm surprised at how popular this place is. Could it be because of the clean table cloths and non-sticky floors? Is it because there is a long line of Asians waiting to eat? Or is it due to the convenient parking? Is it because the waiters don't serve you? It's definitely not the dim sum that will draw me back.... More

We waited an hour to be seated at lunch time. But did enjoy reading the menu and pre-selecting the dim sum with one side in English the other in Chinese (not sure Mandarin or Cantonese). Preselecting meant we were served fast, but our meal came out in an unusual order - desert first! My husband and I fought over the... More

Waited an hour, as promised. Mostly Asian customers made us know we picked a great place and we were right. Delicious dim sum! Accommodating servers.

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!!!
