What is the biggest dim sum restaurant?

  • d

I'm always awed by the scale of the Empress Pavillion downtown. It must be bigger than 99% of the restaurants in LA. For me, it adds to the atmosphere. Nothing against a little bistro, but in a childlike way, big stuff seems cool. Yeah, I like those TLC shows about the giant tractors and cranes. Anyway, I've heard there are some even bigger dim sum places in Monterey Park. Can anyone suggest a really BIG dim sum place? :)

Anyone know what the biggest restaurant (of any type) is in the LA area?

      It has to compete with NBC Seafood, which is also on Atlantic, south of Garvey and past the Marie Callender's. Uff da, so huge!
