LA's 5 Best Dim Sum Spots: Did Yours Make the List?

Is Sea Empress on your list?
If there is one topic that's sure to elicit debate with foodists in this town, it's where to get the best dim sum on the weekends. And the restaurants most likely won't even be in LA, but rather Monterey Park, San Gabriel or somewhere in the 626 where the most authentic Chinese restaurants reign supreme. So here are the top 5 highest rated dim sum spots in our guide, but we know there are so many more. Did yours make the list? If not, tell us about it comments. More importantly, vote it in!

  1. I'm not trying to sound racist, but what race of people rated these dim sum restaurants? I'm Chinese-American, and I do not frequent any of these choices for dim sum.

    3. I am also Chinese and I have been to 4 out of 5 of these places. (All but the one in Gardena.) I am not a fan of any of these places but I would trade my first born for dim sum at NBC. I've been going here my entire life and it's beat the places in San Fran, NY, etc. the only place that has better dim sum is Hong Kong! Give NBC a try, the service sucks and so does the wait but the food is great!!

  2. I know it's not possible to review all restaurants but NBC? Seriously? It's got to be one of the worst Dim Sum restaurants around.

  3. I've been to all of them and they are all good. But you cam never go wrong at NBC. It's Johnniea to pastrami and Pinks to hotdogs and In and Out to burgers.

    There is a lot to say about longevity and NBC has been there like forever..
