We have been here many times in the past for dim-sum or banquet. After a mid morning meeting in downtown on a Wednesday morning, we decided to call up a couple of friends to meet here for lunch. Plenty of tables available at 12:00 and service was decent. The problem that I found was that the food was cold, even... More

This is one of my family's favorite places to eat dimsum. It's served in carts and the service is quite good. The dimsum selection is quite extensive and you can also order from the menu. My parents like the "imperial" decor and it's cleaner and better lit than many Chinese restaurants

Great dim sum at a reasonable price. No wait every time I go. They have a great shrimp won ton soup as well. My friend and I travel 40 minutes to come eat here.

Had dim sum lunch here with friends and everything was delicious. Plan to get there early because it does fill up fast on weekends. Located on the third floor of the bulding with underground parking. We were there on a Saturday at 10am and were seated quickly. At that time there weren't too many carts yet but we were patient.... More

Had a dimsum lunch at Empress Harbor and the selection of dimsum is wonderful. They have the standard dimsum and also some special plates that others don't have. The service is very good and the selection is varied. The restaurant is very pleasantly decorated

My boyfriend and I have been craving a really good, legit dim sum place and decided to give this place a shot. Walking in, I initially saw that this place is currently a B rating which bothered me a little. We gave it a shot anyway and ordered half of the Peking duck, pork shumai, shrimp hargow, steamed pork buns... More

I have dim sum here every few months and the quality has had its ups and downs over the years. But the location is convenient etc. but this last visit finally has me looking for a new dim sum spot. The food wasn't hot, there weren't enough carts to offer food, and when they did show up, the variety was... More

Dropped by here for dim sum one afternoon. We came early before the crowds and got a table easily. Overall the food was good and the restaurant seemed bright and vibrant.

The location is good, Dim Sum is fine, Seafood for dinner like Lobster noodle , duck and buns are fine. Service is fast . Have private rooms which could accommodate large group or parties of 12 or more.

I drove the 10 miles from downtown LA to Monterey Park to meet a friend for dim sum or as my Hakka relatives call it "yum cha." Our noon lunch was not too crowded and the carts of bao, noodles, custard pies, etc., came around at a brisk pace. I've spent much time in China, especially Shenzhen and Guangzhou and... More
