Still the best Dim Sum in SGV in my opinion, price overall is very good. Most dim sum place is like 50/50 good or bad, but there is more like 50/50 Excellent and Good. .Dim Sum chef here knows what they doing most of the time. Wish only the serve was better.
You cannot go wrong with the egg york buns and their congee. If you are fan of chicken feet, is probably the best chicken feet dim sum dish in L.A. no added color excellent season.
The disappoint dish were the meatballs and the beef stew noodle. However, the rest is among the best you can test in here.
Even dinner you could order those delicious egg york buns (order of 12)
Arrive early no later than 30 minutes after it open you would wait for a while.Recommended for:

Sea Harbour serves very good dim sum. Maybe I am partial but I think this place is better than most dim sum restaurants in Norcal. Staple items such as the rice rolls, har gow, BBQ pork buns, taco cakes and various steamed dumplings were all excellent. The most memorable of all was their snow cap mountain bun with sweet milk. It is a low fat low cholesterol alternative to the highly popular salted egg york custard buns.
Food is prepared after you placed your order with the check sheet. As much as I like the old school fun of dim sum carts pushing around, nothing compares to the taste of freshly steamed piping hot dim sum.
Apparently this is one of the most loved place among the locals. Come here really early for weekend dim sum (before 11am) or you might have to wait for a really long time.Recommended for:

This is one of the top Dim Sum places in LA and the lines that form outside is a testament to that. Their fried chicken knees are awesome and I've never had better tripe anywhere.Recommended for:

I just found my go to place for dim sum!
Let's see we had the the shrimp balls (Hag gao), pork balls (shi ma, I can't spell canto words XD), the shrimp with chives, sweet sesame balls and the shrimp rice cakes. Add a little bit of soy cause and chili and everything tasted amazing! The price came out to $25, so even if it's a little bit more expensive than the other places, it is worth it.
The usual wait here is about 30 minutes because this place is always packed. Also, it helps if you bring someone that can speak chinese because there is definitely a language barrier here. However, the dim sum is so amazing, that I will overlook all the flaws.

This restaurant always looks super packed with a long line so I haven't gone there since recently... It turned out the wait was not that long (we were lucky?). They said 25 minutes but it was even faster than that. The parking lot was packed though so I parked almost at the end of the residential street.
I thought this was a dim sum restaurant with carts, but you actually have to look at a menu and you mark your choices on a separate sheet. The sheet is all in Chinese so we matched by numbers.
There were no prices, and it turned out to be more expensive that other dim sum places. For 3 people the bill came out to $60ish, when at most places it averages to about 10 per person. I've never had to spend more than $15 for dim sum. And I feel like I ate less than usual too. Plus they charge you for tea per person, and from what I understood they charged for the condiments?
But to write about the food, I must say everything was fresh and tasty. The dumplings were meaty and the plates came pretty quick.
Overall though I prefer going to the cheap dim sum places. They fill me up the same and satisfy my dim sum craving for less $$. So I wouldn't mind coming back here (if someone else pays hehehe) but it wouldn't be my preference.
