I don't think I've ever heard of an AYCE dim sum place. The way that dim sum places usually work is that you sit down and waiters walk around with carts carrying various plates. Each plate will have 1-4 pieces (depending on what it is) and you take plates as you please and they will stamp a card that tells them how much you've had to order when you're done eating. Each plate is usually $3-5.

Maybe there are some cheaper options where you order piece by piece from a menu, but I haven't been to any places like that... Not sure if they exist lol.

Makes sense

Though for me, if I'm trying something new, I want to go for quality over quantity

I don't know of any AYCE Dim sum places

dishes tend to be $2-5 each, and I tend to spend about $20-30 a person and I get very full
so same price as AYCE sushi I guess

Oh 2-5$ each isn't bad at all. Thought it was more like 12$+. What's a good Dim Sum place in the Valley? Would hate to drive all the way to Monterrey unless I'm already around there for one of those Bikini Cafe's lolol.

KBBQ/Sushi included


Wes, so we need to do KBBQ again and also Dim Sum too now huh?
Yes, though dim sum might be harder since we would most likely have to venture to SGV to get some good stuff. Unless you know of a good place closer to home?

That place looks great. I'll have to try it next time I'm in the area.

BTW, I stopped at Fire Stone in SLO on my way back from SF. The tri-tip sandwich was very good. I'll definitely be back.

I have a friend who worked at an A&W for a short time. I'm pretty sure he told me never to eat there lol. I'll have to ask him.

Every restaurants...if you know every small details happening in the back, you will never be able to eat anything. As long as no one reported killed by eating there, just enjoy your meal
