This is our go to place for dim sum for almost 25 years. The quality has been very consistent and that matters! It is just as good as the dim sum places in Hong Kong...probably better than some! If you are in the Montery Park area, don't hesitate to stop by for an excellent Hong Kong style meal, dim sum and all!

This is a huge, beautiful banquet facility on Atlantic Blvd., in Monterey Park. I really liked the dim sum and the prices were very reasonable. It is very noisy and hard to hear the conversation at your table. We arrived after the first wave of carts went through the dining room so we got what was left and it took a long time before more carts with our favorites appeared again from the kitchen. That being said, it is a good value.

When you visit this restaurant it is like a bee hive. Very dynamic interaction between the visitors and the ladies with their food trolleys. There is no menu. Instead there are ladies who will visit your table asking if you'd like a dish of what they have on their trolley. This can be a Dim Sum dish, vegetables, meat, or whatever. It is very exciting to do and see. If you picked out a dish, the lady will put a stamp on your card. This card you need to pay at the register. Every dish is delicious. I really enjoyed it very much.

Ocean Star Seafood Restaurant is another good Dim Sum to visit for authentic Dim Sums. Lots of choices, good food and acceptable service. Any GOOD Dim Sum restaurant is always very busy during weekends. If you don't want to wait long lines, try visiting during weekdays and half to 1 hour before 12:00 lunch time.

Ocean Star is a big restaurant where you can have dim-sum during breakfast and lunch with a great variety to choose from. They are still using dim-sum carts so you can pick what you see. Servers are friendly. Parking garage is available so even it's raining or too hot, you are covered.
