Dim Sum in SFV?

We used to go to Empress Pavillion in Alhambra or one of the places in Chinatown, but we moved to Sherman Oaks recently. Any good dim sum in Sherman Oaks/Van Nuys - anyplace in the SFV, really. Thanks.

  1. I'm told that A and W Seafood (?) across from Trader Joes on Rinaldi and San Fernando Mission offers up weekend Dim Sum carts. Went there for reg. dinner last week and wasn't impressed but, maybe their dim sum is better. Also went to recently reviewed Tampa Garden 8241 Tampa - SW corner of Tampa and Roscoe (caddy corner from Shamshiri Grill). Not dim sum but very yummy dumplings and noodles. The owner is out front making these tasty morsels right in front of your table. She's really a delight and told me that she will make anything you might like ex: I prefer straight up seafood dumplings w/o pork. She said no prob. just give her a call ahead of time. Give these a try :)

      A&W's dim sum is forgetable. Thier location on Reseda Blvd. has better reg. food than the Rinaldi location.
