South Bay Dim Sum

I drove over to where Regal Palace used to be to find a new restaurant in their place. It is now PV Palace and don't serve dim sum.
Where, in the South Bay, can I now find dim sum ?

    when they first changed over they were doing dim sum. Did you go during lunch? It was pretty good when we were there about 3 or so months ago. That is very disappointing to hear.

      No, I was so disapointed that I drove around and ended up at PCH. While there I had their Shrimp w/ Snow Peas, which I found the shrimp were cooked perfectly but overall the dish was to salty for my taste. I was the only customer at lunch and now I know why.
      I'll have to go back to PV Palace and try their lunch.

      Seafood Empress on Redondo Beach Blvd in Gardena serves up dim sum but kind of pricey and high end. Tasty Kitchen on Artesia serves limited dim sum on weekends but not too good in my opinion. The original owners came from Seafood Empress. There was another place on PCH near Regal which I haven't been to in years. It could have been Szchewan? Good dim sum in the south bay is hard to find.

        I had dim sum at Tasty Kitchen and was very disappointed - the selection was small and it just wasn't very good. Sea Empress is the best in the area.

          The problem with Sea Empress is that it's gone downhill ever since Jimmy was replaced as owner a while back. He originally came from Empress Pavilion located in Chinatown and opened up SE replacing the old Kawafuku Restaurant in the Pacific Square. Dim sum is quite good but very expensive is what I hear all the time. Forget Tasty Kitchen for dim sum. It's a poor substitute for SE. They try hard but it doesn't cut the mustard. For better quality and selection in the southbay, the Szchewan Restaurant on PCH is a little better but not by much. Prices are more reasonable. Haven't yet tried the PV Palace yet to comment.
