Lunasia for dinner?

Anyone know what Lunasia's dinners are like? Would you recommend it? (The one in Alhambra.)

  1. Live seafood is always a safe bet. Some of the claypots are noteworthy. Suckling pig when it was Triumphal Palace was also good, doubt that it would have changed much even with the turnover in management.

    Triumphal Palace
    500 W Main St, Alhambra, CA 91801

    1. We've been a couple times. Agree with ipsedixit that the seafood was tasty, but it wasn't very crowded or lively like it is during dim sum. During the day I find that the buzz makes up for the kind of pedestrian room, but the times we've been for dinner it's been quiet almost to the point of being somewhat uncomfortable. So for food, yes, definitely, all day every day, for vibe, I'd stick to daylight hours personally.

      1. Is the dinner menu the same as Triumphal Palace?

          No. Although I don't have either menu committed to memory to compare for certain I can tell you that there are more claypot dishes now than before.

        2. I thought it was quite good for dinner. Like the other more upscale places, they have some inventive dishes. I liked the tilipia rolls and the honey citrus chicken.
